It just occurred to me how appropriate it is that I have a Nutty Oats series on the blog the same time of year that I’m about to go nuts from a combination of homesickness and stress…see how hilarious I am? 😀

Nov 11

  • pumpkin seeds, walnuts, milk, coconut, flax, banana

 

Ever since I came up with the microwave pancakes, I’ve been craving them like crazy! I’m thinking of doing a savory pancake for dinner sometime 😀

Nov 15

  • raisin granola, goji berries, longans, flax, milk, cocoa, walnuts

I haven’t had granola with oats for a while!

Dinner

Baba ghanoush, tomatoes, whole wheat english muffin, scrambled egg, kidney beans, chickpeas

Nov 16

No oats for breakfast!

English muffin with margarine, watermelon, and scrambled eggs.

Kinda refreshing to have a change from the usual routine! I think I’m going to try and have something different for breakfast once every week so I can have oatmeal at the cafeteria XD

Dinner:

Hummus, baba ghanoush, roasted red pepper sauce + bread, tuna, kidney beans, chickpeas, coffee

All-nighter snacks:

 

Fruits, pistachios, apple, and coffee.

Only my plan failed and I fell asleep…

Home stretch! Only one more week of classes left! When do you guys finish school for the holidays??

That pancake looks SO good! Next week is also my last week of classes 🙂 Good thing it’s a short one!

Just a quick question…are you Chinese?
Your oatmeal creations are awesome…They make me crave oatmeal all the time! But you seem to eat very little, and fill yourself up with veggies…are you on a diet?

coco
It contains eggplants 😛 That’s the extent of what I know! People usually eat it as some sort of dip

Sophia
Thanks!
And no, I’m not on a diet. I don’t photograph every bite I eat [and I eat a little at a time since I tend to get hungrier as I eat] so I guess it’s kind of misleading 😛 It’s true that I don’t eat meat very often–but I never was a huge meat-eating person~but when the cafeteria serves turkey loaf, I usually go to town on that stuff!

You just gave me the idea of adding pistachios to my trail mix. Usually it consists of almonds, raisins, and granola.. sometimes m&m’s. Pistachios would be a great treat.

I also just read here that if you leave the shell on you trick yourself into eating less, which is always good:
