Oatmeal #108: Sesame September 15, 2008

Yesterday’s breakfast:

oatmeal-sep14_08 (1)


  • oats, flax, walnuts
  • water, milk
  • 1 apple
  • 1 tsp coconut
  • 2 tsp black sesame paste powder

I got the instant kind…but I think what the paste actually is, is just ground sesame + water + sugar–very thick and awesome! Just two tsp in the oats gave me plenty of flavor–although the sweetness wasn’t noticeable, the apples took care of that problem, so it wasn’t a big deal!


You can’t see it in this picture, but the oats were kinda gray-ish ’cause of the hue of the sesame–it sounds gross, but as you can see from the picture, it’s not gray enough to actually be gross! :mrgreen: 

Post-run snack:


The gym doesn’t open til 9 a.m.  on weekends! How frustrating. So I went out for a run instead 😀

Anyway, in clockwise direction started from top left: mocha [nestle hot chocolate mix + instant columbian coffee + milk], fruit salad from the caf [I ate half the container before I snapped the pic 😛 I wanted to save it for the oatmeal–but I was too hungry!], and almond crackers.



To the left: PB&J sandwich with cucumber and spinach. [there’s PB on the outside of the top piece of bread ’cause I spread the jam on the wrong side of the bread!]

To the right: entree Greek salad I bought from the university center tuck shop. That was the first time I’ve ever tried feta cheese–not much flavor! I was disappointed. But the salad filled me up, so that was quite good 😀

Got my stats class in an hour, and then my day is over and I can have dinner! Yay 😀

Interesting idea. Sounds yummy. Have you ever used poppy seeds?

Sesame paste powder – will the creativity ever end with you, Carmen? I don’t think so!

Sorry you weren’t a huge fan of the feta — I’ll agree there isn’t much flavor…but it’s amazing on a pizza!

Hahah, you never fail to surprise me with your food combinations. Such as the pb&j + cuc and spinach. I can actually imagine that being good! You get the fresh veggie crunch AND the lovely sweetness of the standard comfort sandwich.

And greek salad! My fav! I can’t believe that was your first time trying FETA. Crazy. I’m sad you didn’t like it though! BUT I find there are huge variations in the taste of different kinds of fetas out there. I’m not a fan at ALL of a lot of cheaper fetas because they are really bland. Don’t rule it out though, try to get ahold of some creamy greek feta. There are some AMAZING ones out there.
