WIAW Post-Vacation

12 Mar

It is definitely an understatement when we say it is a little difficult to get back into the swing of things after spending seven days away on vacation. After being in 70-80 degree temperatures, 30 degree temperatures were no longer considered “warmer days”. However, hopefully we will see some warmer days ahead! Each day we are counting down the days left until spring! Eight to go! We cannot wait.

Although it was wonderful to have someone cook and serve us dinner for seven whole days, we would be lying if we said we did not miss cooking in our own kitchen. We could not wait to get home and purchase some of our favorite basics we missed during our trip! Heres what was on our list.

1. Plain Greek Yogurt
2. Mixed Greens
3. Hummus
4. Oversized Carrots
5. Sweet Potatoes 
6.  Flavored Coffee
7. Kale
8. Strawberries

We were planning to stop at a Costco on the way home, but instead we passed a Trader Joes so of course we just had to stop! Thankfully our mom picked up a few things at Costco for us anyways, but we were also able to get our favorite hummus, pink lady apples, a few jars of our favorite unsalted peanut butter, and trail mix! What is your favorite thing to purchase from Trader Joes?

We used these groceries to get us through the next few days until we are onto our next adventure. We wanted to link up with Peas and Crayons to give you a closer look at what we have been enjoying these past few days. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the What I Ate Wednesday party over on her blog!

We have come to realize over the past few years that life is just way too short to eat crappy food.

Here is a recap of yesterday’s eats! ‘Twas a good food day indeed. No crap food in sight.

We started off Tuesday with a throwback breakfast. KERF whipped banana oats with cottage cheese mixed in. We topped our oatmeal with toasted coconut and coconut peanut butter. It was definitely a rocking combination and a fabulous way to start off the day.

Lunch was some of our lentil salad we prepped on Sunday afternoon.

Paired with a red delicious apple.

and a Synergy Trilogy to wash it all down. 

20140211-221915.jpg

 

Our afternoon snack was consumed between classes and went unpictured. We have also come to the conclusion that we could eat a banana with peanut butter every single day and not get sick of it. Anyone else with us? . 

 

Dinner was a comforting bowl of homemade soup.

With an XL piece of maple pumpkin cornbread on the side!

Finally, we ended this extra long Tuesday with a Noosa yogurt and granola.

Another WIAW in the books. We hope you all have a fabulous day and remember to check out what everyone else is eating over at Peas and Crayons! Thanks Jenn for hosting such a fun link up. Wednesday blog posts sure are our favorite!

After a busy last week it was quite nice to have a snow day on Monday.

A full day of catching up on work, staying warm inside, and tons of time to meal prep for the next few days!

Yesterday we made a big batch of chili in the crockpot, a large freekeh, chickpea and roasted vegetable salad for lunches, and homemade whole wheat banana bread! The smells coming from our kitchen were to die for.

Here are our eats from Tuesday, enjoy!

We started off the day with a big bowl of oat bran, enjoyed leftover butternut squash and black bean enchiladas on mixed green salads for lunch, and for dinner we had some chili topped with greek yogurt and avocado. A smoothie held us over in the afternoon and we ended the day with a mug of plain greek yogurt topped with a crumbled piece of banana bread.

We just received an e-mail that our classes today are cancelled again due to the snow and freezing rain! Cheers to another snow day! This week is turning out to be quite fabulous. Make sure to check out what everyone else is eating lately on this snowy Wednesday over at Peas and Crayons.

We love Wednesdays. Especially Wednesdays after snow days. Snow days that leave us stranded at home curled up by the fire with Grey’s and a heavy pour of sweet red in our hand. Here’s a picture recap of yesterday’s eats. It was a good food day indeed.

20140121-173509.jpg

Have you ever tried toasted coconut coffee? Heaven.

20140121-185758.jpg

After coffee we started the day with a banana dough boy smoothie. Kath sure knows how to make a mean smoothie. 20140121-185752.jpg

Snacky lunch. Tuna, avocado and greek yogurt dip with Late July tortilla chips, red pepper slices, cucumber slices and an apple on the side. Lunch is just so much more fun when it involves dunking chips.
20140121-185738.jpg

Late afternoon we enjoyed a small yogurt parfait filled with Chobani, blackberries, and granola. If we must say it was a pretty tasty combination.

20140121-185731.jpg

Dinner was whipped up in a matter of minutes thanks to some meal planning earlier in the week. Already cooked bulgur wheat, grape tomatoes, chicken, melted mozzarella, roasted brussels sprouts and homemade lemon tahani dressing over a big bowl of mixed greens.

20140121-185745.jpg

It was a well enjoyed snow day that may or may not have ended with a small bowl of blueberry oatmeal with a blob of almond butter on top. Let’s be honest, a day without nut butter is a pretty sad day. wiaw

Happy Wednesday! We hope you have a great day. Just think you’re halfway through the week already.  For all of you who are still enjoying another snow day, we are jealous! Don’t forget to head on over to Peas and Crayons to see what everyone else is eating today too!

Thank you Peas and Crayons for making Wednesdays fun.

Happy New Year!

1 Jan

Happy New Year! Last night we rang in the new year with a good friend. Our night was filled with tofu ricotta lasagna [to die for, btw] wine, and champagne as the ball dropped.

20140101-110204.jpg

It was fabulous, low key, and enjoyed by all.

20140101-111252.jpg

Cheers to 2014, may your year be filled with lots and lots of great moments.

20140101-110748.jpg

This morning we woke up around 8:45 and got in a quick 30 minute run around the neighborhood to kick off 2014 on the right note!

20140101-111644.jpg

After showering we made our first breakfast of 2014. A greek yogurt parfait filled with plain 2% Fage, diced red delicious apples, homemade granola, and peanut butter!

20140101-111245.jpg

Today we plan on having a lazy day filled with lots and lots of Grey’s anatomy.

We hope you have a fabulous first day of the new year!

How did you ring in 2014?
