Catch-up post!

Haven’t been feeling very adventurous lately…and my fridge was rather empty, so it’s just been nice, classic comboes for the past few days πŸ˜€

Chocolate-Raspberry Oatmeal


Made with cottage cheese, served with cinnamon gree tea [added the cinnamon in–but didn’t really change the flavor much!]

Cinnamon Coconut Oatmeal Pancake


I tried a new pancake topping instead of the usual banana! The last few scoops of blueberry-cherry jam and walnuts–super yum!

Blueberry, Corn, Longans Oatmeal


Again made with cottage cheese πŸ˜€ That stuff is just magical when cooked with oats! Had a cup of coffee on the side.

Beans for Breakfast

Sweet bean soup again! Added some rice this time ’cause I was low on pearl barley and black-eyed peas! I added more water this time, and so ended up with a lot more of the soup πŸ˜€ Happiness!

I had a cup of coffee with this breakfast–it’s quickly becoming a habit! Not sure if this is good or bad…

Yesterday was snack day for me!

Post-run snack:


One black corn oat chunk, one sliced up Golden Delicious apple, and one heaping spoonful of peanut butter! PB + fruits = amazing.

Was going out for dinner with my housemate at 6: 15, which mean I was having dinner at least 1.5 hours later than usual, so I cut up some raw yellow peppers for a snack after lab:

Dinner was yet another contribution to pizza week! We went to Wooden Heads–a gourmet pizza place–unfortunately I only sat down for about 15 minutes because I had to be back at the lab! The next half hour was possibly the hungriest half hour ever 😦 Luckily my lab-mate was nice and I got to leave 10 minutes early πŸ˜€


My pizza was called Arrogosta–curried lobster veloute [a French sauce], grilled red onions [I’m really developing a taste for onions these days–weird!], mushrooms, and smoked salmon! It was SO. SO. GOOD. Smoked salmon is amazing! The sauce was amazing! And it was about $14 plus tax and whatnot–not bad at all!

Oh, and thank you Jenn for nominating me! I always knew I was awesome, but it’s nice to hear it from someone else :mrgreen:


And I’d like to nominate: Lindsay [Happy Herbivore], Kristie [Lighter Portions], Jenna [Eat, Live, Run], Leng [A Fat Cat Who Created a Vegetarian], and Chandra [Chandra’s Shenanigans]

I’m supposed to nominate two more, but there are too many blogs! Can’t choose! Plus I’m also lazy, so I’m stopping at 5 πŸ˜›

Be back tomorrow for my oatme al challenge entry!
