The Perks of Sunshine

3 May

Yesterday was the first day (of many to come) where we were able to enjoy all of our meals outside on our patio! Eating outside makes us SO happy. We just love being able to soak up the sun.

We loved yesterday so much that we had to share it with you. Is anyone as obsessed as we are with eating outside?

The day started outside with breakfast. We had overnight oats in our almost empty peanut butter jars. If you don’t put your almost empty natural peanut butter jars to use, please feel free to send them our way! They would be put to good use 🙂

Lunch was a huge salad with a little bit of everything thrown in. Mixed greens, red kidney beans, hummus, peppers, carrots, cucumbers, colby jack cheese, buckwheat groats, sea salt, and honey.

Our afternoon snack before our pedicure date with our mom was a fresh smoothie! This one had OJ, light strawberry yogurt, almond milk, and a frozen banana. Topped with nature path vanilla cereal aka the best brand EVER!

Dinner was also enjoyed outside. Roasted vegetables, roasted sweet potatoes (tossed in cayenne and cinnamon) and baked tofu marinated in a combination of lime juice, soy sauce, and maple syrup! If anyone’s interested in the specifics, let us know and we’ll fill you in.

Make sure you take the opportunity to enjoy one of your next meals outside if you can! Everything is better in wonderful weather!

We found this photo yesterday, don’t you agree? We hope you have a lovely weekend filled with tons of delicious eats.

    I absolutely love eating outside. When we finally get good weather (which seems really unlikely right now, boo) I love eating outside! We had a few days of good weather up here in WI but now its raining and cool again for at least a week. 😦

      We hope the weather in WI gets warmer soon rather than later for your sake!! 🙂
