Monday’s breakfast: More smoothie adventures!

oatmeal-aug18_08 (1)

This time:

  • 0.25 cup oats
  • 0.25 cup mixed grains
  • 0.25 cup soy milk
  • 0.25 cup 2% milk
  • 0.25 cup water
  • last of my goji berries [1.5 tbsp?]
  • 0.5 small carrot [yeah…I was looking for things to bulk up my smoothie with]
  • 0.25 cup corn
  • 2 medium strawberries

I’m not sure but I think I might have gotten a bigger cup this time? If not, well…I felt much more full after drinking, so…?


But yeah I was really impressed with the strawberries ’cause I could smell and taste them even though I only threw two random ones in! Awesome 😀 And I couldn’t taste the carrot & corn at all–even though I definitely chewed on some carrot pieces.

Tasted good though! Not too sweet, doughy, crunchy, chewy 😀 Kinda like last time!

Got hungry a while later, so had some soup:


Winter melon…? And shitake mushrooms.

Another snack…may have been after running…? I think that was the day I went running with my dad…? [oh no–early onset Alzheimer’s?!]

My raw brownies!!! Turned out actually brownie-like this time! ZOMFG. I used almonds and raisins [I threw in 2 pieces of apricot in ’cause I didn’t want to use up all the raisins], and I think I overdid the raisins ’cause it was too sweet–but that problem was solved by throwing in the peanut butter!

The stuff in the bowl is just soup with a scoop of congree [rice + water] mixed in.



I had like…3 bowls ’cause I was starving! I don’t understand why I’m always hungry…?

But anyway–the red stuff is something called Honeymoon fried rice? Or something? It comes with tomato sauce & chicken & onions on one side, alfredo & shrimp on the other side. And the rice + egg is underneath the sauce. It’s very yum 😀

The noodles’ just rice noodles + shrimp + egg. ❤

Nooo I can’t believe it’s almost the end of August–this has got to be the fastest summer ever!

What a wonderful orange color in your smoothie. What’s that from?

This has definitely been the FASTEST SUMMER EVER!! I’m not liking that one bit.

I love the color of your smoothie!! And the raw brownie looks ultra-tasty…I’ve got such a craving for chocolate all of the sudden…hm…

😀 I think it may have been largely from the combo of oranges, carrots, and strawberries?

I know! I’m not liking it either 😦 Being lazy is so much fun!
