Happy Wednesday babes! It’s time for a Honeybee Health post and this one’s dedicated to all things Starbucks! I have had a couple of you email/comment asking about what I order there so today’s post i’m sharing all my go to orders… so lets get down to it! Let me just start by saying we LOVE Starbucks! I am the big coffee drinker in the house but I really love Starbucks more for the fact that they always have healthy options and are so up to date with new products! In Orange County were so lucky to have so many healthy restaurant options but when we’re back east, in an airport, or traveling I get SO excited when I see a Starbucks. We literally stock up on stuff like we’re at a grocery store because we know they have healthy options and eventually someone will eat whatever we purchased. Even our kids love their stuff! (PS this is not a sponsored post 😉 As for coffee’s honestly I just don’t waste my calories on the sugary ones. About 5 years ago my go to used to be a non fat latte with a Splenda or one of those sugar free lattes.
Alright my lovely ladies, as promised i’m sharing my “Day in Meals” post today. Let me start by saying something I have completely lagged in lately is my meal prepping (you girls remember I used to do it all the time back in the day?!) and my workouts. I feel like ever since Mr. Luca came life just went into overdrive and took busy to another level. Also blogging may seem like an easy breezy thing but trust me when I say it takes up ALOT of time. Okay sorry for the rant but I am on a mission to figure out a better balance so I can get back to regular meal prepping and workouts! All that being said I think making conscious decisions about what I am putting into my body has helped a lot with staying in shape. So here’s what a typical day in meals looks like for me…. The kids are up and at em’ by 6:30 every morning so I start with COFFFFEEEE. I use organic half and half creamer and a little agave. After about an hour I start to get hungry so i’ll have these Van’s Protein Waffles with a little peanut butter and a little agave or syrup.
Alright my lovelies, keeping up with my weekly Honeybee Health posts here we go with this weeks random shots….. I’ve tend to do a lot of work away from home so breakfast out usually looks something like this. Egg White Scramble with a side of avocado toast and a latte. I find the avocado toast to be really filling so I usually only eat half and save the other half for later that day. Another option Egg white scramble with spinach, basil, tomatoes and feta…SO good! I skip the potatoes and just have the toast with jam. Starbuck on the go… I Love their oatmeal option! I don’t know why but it always tastes so much better than my oatmeal at home. Healthy, filling and around 300-350 calories depending on how much stuff you put in it. I really like that they give you all the toppings separate and it has the calorie count on each pack so you can decide exactly what and how much you want to put in it. Some of you asked on my last Honeybee Health post for a Starbucks Order post so my next Honeybee Health will be strictly my go to orders from there!
Morning loves! I was trying to post this post all day yesterday but some reason was having an issue with my computer. Anyhow its been a minute since i’ve done a Honeybee Health post but i’ve been sharing tons of snaps on my SnapChat (@andeelayne) much more frequently. So if you’d like to see them and all kinds of random unfiltered’ness on there 😉 feel free to follow along! Ps I just learned how to change my settings so you guys can message me on there too! Okay here are some random Honeybee Health shots via the camera roll….. For Luca! These are always staples in my grocery cart. He loves these little freeze dried yogurt fruit snacks and I love that they have probiotics too. These blueberry and carrot teethers are a hit with him (and Ava too…because you know if he’s snacking she has to have some too). They dissolve really easily and I like them for the car because they don’t make a huge mess (ummm not like it should make a difference though because my car usually looks like a war zone lol) A couple others to snack on at home or in my diaper bag Love these for on the go for Ava!
It’s been a minute since i’ve done a full Honeybee Health post for you ladies so today i’m sharing some random foodie shots via the camera roll. I plan on sharing more on my SnapChat (AndeeLayne) because my food and fashion posts seem to get a lot of screen shots on there. So if you want to see these shots more frequently you can follow along there! xo Post Workout Lunch // Avocado toast with poached eggs, sprouts and a green drink!
Grocery Cart check in at Whole Foods! (Holla to The HB follower I met in the cereal aisle! You were a doll! Ps if you guys see me out say hi…I promise I am totally normal 😉
I try to do the majority of my grocery shopping at Traders so I don’t spend a billion dollars at Whole Foods but I always leave there with way more than I came in for. I love their coffee and the snack options they have for my babes! Ava loves those baked grilled cheese puffs and the BARE dried apple chips are a hit with the whole fam.
Alright lovelies! Finally a Honeybee Health post! I have been trying to do these on my Instagram and use the #honeybeehealth hashtag to make it easier to see snapshots of how I eat (and its a lot faster for me to post) but after several requests for a full blog post here we go!!! (Ps I’m doing this on my iPhone so sorry it’s a little choppy.) Lunching at Lemonade I have salmon, cous cous, kale salad and avocado/tomato salad! Of course washed it down with a guava lemonade! Yum!
My breakfast/brunches usually look like this! If I’m really craving a stack of pancakes I get them but normally I just go with something like this…egg white and turkey bacon omelette topped with avocado. I skipped the white toast and had a small cup of steel cut oats a small side of fruit and of course a latte.Lunching out is all about colorful veggies! I try to fill up on these (they come with a olive tapenade type of dip that is sooo good). For lunch I had the turkey pita wrap with no cheese and a side of sweet potatoe hash and kale salad!
Alright lovelies you’ve been requesting more of these so here we go with another round of random Honeybee Health shots via the camera roll….. A snap shot of my grocery cart after leaving the produce aisle. I try to stock up the majority of my cart with tons of colorful fruits and veggies! Lots of filling, nutrient dense produce. What I put in the house is what they will eat so I stock up on the good stuff!
A typical breakfast….instant oats, ground chia seed, half a banana and a little agave nectar to sweeten it up!You’ve probably seen this breakfast option on here before but the Van’s protein waffles are a staple in our house! Again topped with a little banana, ground chia, almond butter and the maple/agave blend syrup from Trader Joes.
My little one is ALWAYS asking for snacks in the car. Chances are if she’s munching on it I end up munching on them too so I try to keep those snacks healthy. These Dried apple chips are always on hand and Ava gobbles them up!
I’ll be honest i’ve been really bad about food prepping these last couple months.
Hi loves! It’s been a minute since i’ve done a Honeybee Health post and so many of you have asked about what I order at Starbucks so here we gooooo….I didn’t give up coffee when I was pregnant with Ava or this pregnancy either. I did cut back to one cup a day though. I try to make sure all of my options are around 200-300 calories because anything over that i’d rather be having a cupcake 😉 I also used to be into all the sugar free/splenda drinks etc but a couple years ago I started cutting that stuff out. Now I just go with a tall latte and have 2% or whole milk so I can drink it without sweetener or artificial sweetener.
ahhhh the breakfast sandwiches…my favorite! Pretty much the only two I eat there are the spinach egg white wrap (obsessed!) and the turkey bacon, cheese and egg white muffin! Love them and they are both under 300 Calories.I have raved about Evolution drinks before. They are SO good and the calorie count isn’t horrible on them. They sell these in the refrigerated section at Starbucks and are a go to of mine in the warmer months.
And its Fridayyyyy! “Meme” is in town so we are soaking up all that grandma goodness while we can! Why is it always so much better when your mama comes to visit ?! 😉 I get tons of requests for more food posts so i’ve been trying to post more on Instagram. It’s so much easier/faster to share on there but I like to do these full posts on the blog so I can elaborate a little more. So here we go with some recent random Honeybee Health shots for ya…. I was left in charge of ordering “take out” so it was a vegetable crudite, kale salad, chicken lettuce cups and hummus and pita. The hubby was out of town so if I was ordering for him too there would have probably been a bison burger or something a little more manly 😉 MAJOR popcorn cravings lately! This is the one I picked up from the grocery store and am obsessed!
On the last post I was talking about chips and salsa and said I would try to take a picture of my go to options for you.
Its been a minute since i’ve done a Honeybee Health post so here we go with some random shots that have been sitting on my camera roll… I’ve been making a lot of salads for lunch lately. This one has rotisserie chicken, (whatever veggies I have in the fridge) cherry tomatoes and shaved grilled corn, topped with a little bit of mozzarella and my go to Balsamic dressing. My go to creamer (it’s just milk, cream and sugar) and I love these Vita Coco Cafe drinks but the hubby usually polishes them off before I get a chance to snag one 😉 Out to dinner had filet mignon and loads of veggies Lunch with a friend at Tender Greens was a rotisserie chicken spinach salad and a side of tomato soup. and of course there’s a weekly trip to Wendy’s to get that frosty! I always tell the hubby to only get me the kids size but he knows best when I polish off the medium. 😉
I posted this shot on instagram last week from Greenleaf. I’m OBSESSED with their Cobb Lite salad. They use egg whites and turkey bacon ;)))At home I made healthy steak fajitas.
