WIAW Winter Break Edition

18 Dec

Hey guys, happy Wednesday! We hope you all are having a fabulous week! Can you believe there are only 6 days until Christmas? Yeah, we can’t either. All our Christmas shopping is officially done and our gifts are wrapped and already waiting under the tree!

If you ask us what our favorite part about winter break is, we definitely would say it is cooking and getting creative in the kitchen. During the semester our busy schedules make it hard to be creative and try new recipes but our schedules are wide open right now and we’re definitely taking advantage!

It’s Wednesday so today we are going to share with you all what we’ve been eating lately! Don’t forget to head on over to Peas and Crayons to check out what everyone else is munching on lately. We love Wednesday’s, and WIAW is definitely our favorite blog link up ever.

We were definitely creative yesterday, especially with breakfast.

A banana split for breakfast? Don’t mind if we do!

Overnight oats poured over a sliced banana topped with drippy almond butter, homemade quinoa granola, and shredded coconut. Best idea ever.

Lunch was an arugula salad paired with a fresh and juicy apple.

We made a big salad for lunches this week based off of Kath’s beet salad recipe. We tossed arugula with roasted cinnamon and cayenne sweet potatoes, chickpeas, pomegranate arils, bulgur wheat, and sunflower seeds.

Around 4pm our stomachs were growling and we had peanut butter cookie Lara bars to hold us over until dinner!

We usually are not big pasta fans but we decided to give it a try and let’s just say we may be bringing pasta back into our dinner rotations. We always feel that a serving of pasta isn’t very filling but we bulked it up with kale, cauliflower, grape tomatoes, and chicken.

We’re hooking on watching all 9 seasons of Grey’s Anatomy during winter break. We are currently on Season 4 and cannot stop watching!!Greys

In between episodes we snacked on siggi’s plain yogurt (love the ingredients list btw, just skim milk), a 1/2 of a crumbled trader joe’s blueberry bran muffin, banana slices and pomegranate arils.

And maybe one or two spoonfuls of this baby. Our mom brought us back a jar from her weekend business trip to Boston. She’s the best!

Yesterday was definitely a good food day. We hope these photos inspire you all to add lots of vegetables to your next pasta dish, to go get in your car and buy those trader joe bran muffins, and to possibly spark your interest in becoming as obsessed with Grey’s Anatomy as we are.

Do you watch Grey’s Anatomy or have a series you just cannot stop watching?

    I’m all for a banana split for breakfast. I haven’t had sunflower seed butter in forever!

    Love the larabar selection and the sunflower seed butter! I’m not a Grey’s person but may need to put it on my list of shows to watch when the winter gets too cold šŸ™‚
