What We Ate Week 19 and the Official Start to our Summer

8 May

Happy Wednesday!

Although our blogging pattern may change this summer, we wouldn’t dare miss a what we ate Wednesday post! We have a little too much fun making and photographing our meals for an entire day.

Breakfasts in the summer are just sooooo much more fun because we usually are not in a time crunch. Our
favorite part of summer vacation by far is being able to wake up and enjoy our coffee and breakfast while hanging on our back patio. It is so nice to be able to start our day on such a relaxing note.

Yesterday’s breakfast wasn’t too fancy, but still amazing nevertheless. We made a big greek yogurt parfait to
start off our day. We took plain Greek yogurt and mixed it with almond milk. Then we topped it with Nature’s Path Pumpkin Raisin Crunch, Banana slices, extra raisins, and peanut butter frosting (1 tablespoon of peanut butter mixed with 1 tablespoon of almond milk). Paired with some Folger’s coffee and peppermint creamer (so typical, we know).

Lunch was a slice of our homemade sweet potato crust quiche (recipe coming later this week) on top of a bed of spinach with extra slices of sweet potato, grape tomatoes, and yellow peppers. Of course we took advantage of the beautiful weather and enjoyed lunch outside on the patio.

It was a rainy afternoon yesterday so we stayed indoors and opted for an afternoon snack of mango green tea and life changing bread with sugar free apricot preserves spread on top. This bread is seriously LIFE CHANGING and we will have another post later this week to show you what exactly what makes it just so life changing πŸ˜‰

Being officially done with spring semester means only one thing….celebration time in the form of yummy food and drinks. Yummy drinks include Barefoot Sweet Red.

Yummy dinner was enjoyed in the form of oat crust pizzas! We topped these with fresh chunks of pineapple, grape tomatoes, onion, zucchini, and spinach. Once cooked we crumbled grilled Boca burgers on top and drizzled them with a balsamic reduction.

The rest of our evening was spent watching a TV series we recently picked up on. It is called Downton Abbey! We came across it thanks to our cousin, Kate! She recommended it to us. It’s starting to get pretty juicy as the drama unfolds! We find ourselves watching episodes late into the night.

Before we went to bed we managed to find some time to whip up some homemade frozen yogurt. We simply mixed together strawberry yogurt, almond milk, and cinnamon and poured it into our frozen yogurt maker and 20 minutes later it was ready! We topped it with fresh strawberry and banana slices and granola. It is officially frozen yogurt season and we are not complaining πŸ™‚
