Breakfast from Tuesday:

oatmeal-aug5_08 (1)

I’m not sure why I decided to microwave the batter..maybe ’cause I was too lazy to clean the baking mat?

Anywhoo, pancake batter contents: zucchini [obviously], unsweetened coconut, cinnamon [I think?], flax, milk, oats. With banana-yogurt topping and walnuts! Coconuts in pancakes = #1! The zucchini was also a fun addition–green pancakes! What could be more fun than that?


Oh, and I should note that the microwave isn’t really the best pancake making tool…at least…for my type of batter it isn’t. Pieces were falling off when I attempted to lift the pancake…but thanks to the magic of overnight oatmeal + flax action, everything turned out alright 😀 Great option for when you’re in a hurry though!

Post-run snack:


I was almost out of yogurt! And I wanted to stretch this container til the end of the week, so instead of banana yogurt, I had some form of banana yogurt soup: 0.5 banana, 0.5 – 1 tbsp plain yogurt, splash of rice milk & coffee–delicious, but was gone in a second!

With the soup, I had a mocha-cino muffin top–baked on Sunday! First time I’ve ever made anything muffiny 😀

Dinner–sushi salad!


Tons of raw veggies and rice that was cooked in the morning, so all I had to do when I came home was mix everything together! [Well…I had to microwave the frozen vegetables, but that takes 1 minute…] I need to have salads more often 😀

Off to run in about 10 minutes!

Mm zucchini sounds like a great breakfast pancake addition!

I love that banana yogurt “soup” idea too haha. Definitely sounds like something I would like.

Ooh using the microwave to get things done quick/create less to clean up – definitely my style 🙂

I’ve never tried zucchini in ANYTHING. Perhaps I’ll pick one up this weekend?

whoaaaaa zucchini bread….PANCAKE?! what a good idea! I’ve tried to make those zucchini latke type things before, but they didn’t turn out well! Maybe I’ll try that!

This looks great! Perfect for my rushed mornings before school. Can I use your yogurt pancake batter for this? And how long do I microwave it for?

7. oatmeal - August 8, 2008

Yep, definitely 😀 And I only microwaved for 1 minute, but 1 min 30 sec might be better? Let me know how it works out for you!
