The Last What “WE” Ate Wednesday for Awhile

10 Jul

We were laying in bed last night after spending the entire evening packing for Kayla’s trip abroad to Australia when it dawned on me. This would be the last time we would share with you what we both ate for the next five months! At this time next week, we will be continents apart! This experience apart will be life changing for us both, and a challenge we both aren’t quite sure how we are going to get through yet. When others ask how we are going to survive without each other we simply say, “we haven’t talked about it yet.” That’s because in all honesty, we haven’t. We have this twin telepathy thing where we both kinda know what one another are thinking, and the words do not need to be spoken out loud to one another. The next five months we will survive on skype dinner/breakfast dates, i-messaging, photographs, and care packages.

So what great foods are we eating before Kayla leaves the country? We stocked up on essentials for her last week that included trader joe’s multigrain bread, sun butter, tempeh, extra firm tofu, butternut squash, and corn on the cob!

Breakfast:
Hot oats infused with chia seeds, almond butter, cottage cheese, cinnamon, and chunks of a gala apple.

Paired perfectly with vanilla macadamia nut coffee and soy milk. We recently made a switch to using soy milk or almond milk in our morning coffee instead of a sugar-free creamer. The switch is just another way we’re adding more “whole foods” into our diets.

Lunch:
Trader joe’s multigrain bread with herbed turkey breast, hummus and mixed greens. Along with the sandwich we enjoyed carrot sticks and a lemon Greek yogurt.

We both worked yesterday, so we enjoyed these go raw pumpkin bars. If you haven’t tried any go raw products before we highly recommend you keep a look out for them! They ROCK.

Dinner:
We put together a mixed greens salad with roasted tempeh, butternut squash, onion and garlic. We currently have a ton of ripe avocados that need to be used in our fridge so we added 1/2 an avocado to the top. With a drizzle of balsamic, this salad was perfect!

After dinner, we took a quick little walk around the neighborhood before getting into the next episode of our current obsession: New Girl. We are trying to watch all the episodes before Kayla leaves for Australia. This way we can keep up on the next series together even though we are miles apart.

We paused New Girl to make a smoothie in a bowl.

Snack:

Into the blender went 2 frozen bananas, a handful of frozen blueberries, and 1 1/2 cups of coconut dream milk. We topped it with mesa flakes, the end of our fresh blueberry stash, and almonds.

After watching a few more episodes of New Girl, we were ready for bed. That 5:17 am alarm clock comes pretty quickly anytime after 10 pm. But we do love getting our workout in before most people are even out of bed.

Do you have a specific workout plan that you stick with each week?

Until next Wednesday, be sure to head over to Peas and Crayons to see what everyone else is up to lately. Last week we enjoyed scrolling through a few different blogs to get some new inspiration and ideas from others! It is a wonderful experience to be able to link up with almost 200 other bloggers who are sharing their most recent meals and eats.

The next few days are going to be spent by squeezing in as much twin time as possible. We have some fun dinner plans, a much needed mother-daughter pedicure date, and a body pump class or two to attend, and some shopping! What would the last few days together be without a trip to TJ Maxx and the farmers market?

    Yum! I’ve never thought of adding cottage cheese to oatmeal. What a good idea!

      We love adding cottage cheese to oatmeal! It is such a great way to add extra protein to breakfast!
