special coffee

dedicated to jenny, aka “http://fitgirlfoodie.wordpress.com/”

fancy coffee at home:

  • brew some coffee- i have organic peets blend at the moment
  • get some delicious creamer and toppings: i got the “foam” from whole foods-its a 0 calorie vanilla “cappuccino” foam that goes on like whipped cream, it evaporates quickly but leaves a really yummy flavor lingering in your coffee, and it looks really special at first. whipped cream is good too!
  • add some sweetener-i like truvia
  • and a dash of cinnamon.
  • and have a lovely morning!

and for saturday morning breakfast:

after a good 2 hours of morning essay writing i decided on a mango-orange-green smoothie 😉

  • 1 mango
  • 1 orange
  • a few handfuls of spinach
  • a little almond milk
  • 2 ice cubes

it was a really good one!

i also treated myself to some peanut butter jelly pancakes!

..its embarrassing..i used ready to be made mix that comes a package that looks like a whipped cream bottle..

even more embarrassing it took me a few tries to make them..alice helped me get rid of the ones that didn’t make it onto the plate.

overall they were good. topped with a little peanut butter, a bit of strawberry jam and a dash of raw honey.

and how cute was this sleepy head that i walked in on:

the smoothie and pancakes helped to fuel a good workout.

  • 30 min. stair stepper
  • squats
  • biceps curls
  • row
  • kickbacks
  • abs
  • plank

when i got home i did a mega clean up! the house is tidy ready for ryan to be back in it!

breakfast sundae

this morning was another day of not zz’s for me’s.

i had a meeting at work..it is my day off..it was at 5:30am

needless to say i had another day like yesterday..

zombie-ish feelings..

no getting back to sleep..

i had a very nice 30 min. cardio workout that i was quite proud of myself for..it was a toughy

after lounging and coffee sipping from my guy..it was a truly a fancy indulging one:

i started some laundry and got my breakfast goin on..

i wanted to get in some greens..

  • little less than 1/2 a organic pear
  • 1 kiwi
  • handful of organic spinach
  • 1/2 tablespoon coconut butter
  • little over a tablespoon of organic raw honey
  • tiny bit of water
  • blend away

from a hovering giants point of view:

i didnt want to combine the smoothie with yogurt,

because i still enjoy the texture of the yogurt at its natural state.

so i layered the two:

 

  • 1/4 cup greek yogurt
  • little bit of smoothie
  • 1/4 cup greek yogurt
  • more smoothie

topped with:

  • natures path vanilla almond granola
  • organic blueberries
  • a little organic pear
  • a little almond/peanut butter

it was a beauty

from an indulging point of view:

i watched the runaways and browsed bloggers..the runaways..not so good..

ps: star fruit of the day: KIWI

i learned that the seeds actually have omega 3 fatty acids in them..along with plenty of good stuff; vitamins.. minerals. very neat.

i found this awsome blog that taught me such a thing:

smoothie in a pb cup

i try and get my greens in during the day..

but i also like my sweets.

today i combined them.

it started with this:

and the end of this:

i made this before work:

smoothie:

  • 1/2 cup greek yogurt
  • 2 big handful’s of spinach
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1 teaspoon spirolina
  • 1/2 tablespoon raw honey
  • 1/2 tablespoon coconut butter

(some coconut flakes on top would also be a success)

 

i wasnt sure how this would turn out but i poured away:

i cut a little bit of this and poured a little bit of that.

tadah!

toppers:

  • organic apple, blueberries, kiwi
  • natures path vanilla almond granola
  • raw honey

it turned out to be truly a great one.

it carried me through work and i was off with alice for a hike:

(after a little snack of my leftover kobocha squash from last night..new fave on the go snack..its like candy mm)

yes alice..it was a bit sunny but wheres all that energy you had last night?

guess she was in need of some smoothie in a pb cup herself.

we had a nice time together.

yogurt cup

this was a definite winner earlier this week:

it started out as a lack of sleep and inability to come to a decicsion.

i threw a lot in a bag and wasn’t sure what would result in the outcome:

the day was wearing on me and i was dragging.

i put a little bit of this together:

it was quite a production but i added a bit of this:

and how fortunate was i,

the turn out was beautiful:

  • greek yogurt
  • organic kiwi
  • organic apple
  • organic blueberries
  • chia seeds
  • honey almond butter
  • raw honey

fantastic!!
