It is giant because it’s a catch-up post! 😀

Dec 22


  • wheatberries!!, white chocolate chips, almonds, cashews, cinnamon

+ hazelnut mocha

I have finally hopped on the wheatberry train! A very chewy train, I might add :mrgreen: [does that even make sense?]

And having chocolate chips in my oatmeal makes my mornings exciting!



DUMPLINGS! [I had 3 bowls of that stuff in total–would have had more, but we had to go out 😦 ]

Every time I have these, capital letters and exclamation marks are used, because they are awesome!

I added a shitake mushroom and some tofu thing, plus some fish thing 😛 I should find out what those are called!

Exam oatmeal:

The day before my orgo final:

I made exam art! The molecule depicted above is ethylene 😀

The rest of the other stuff:

Too lazy to describe every single one of them XD

Oh and there was this:

I documented the oatmeal making process! XD Too bad it was a failed experiment!

Yeah…didn’t taste that good…the only thing that saved it were the PB and the peaches…

To finish off:


Frozen yogurt!

It was so cold that everything in my fridge was frozen XD

The snow over here is ridiculous! I have never seen so much snow in Vancouver! There’s probably two feet of snow by now. Crazy!

What’re people doing for Christmas eve?!


Oatmeal #91: Apple Pie – Part II August 16, 2008

Canada finally won a gold medal! I was getting worried!

Thursday’s breakfast:

I upgraded my apple pie oatmeal with chocolate [because chocolate always ups the awesome factor 😀 ] and actual almonds! The only thing that kept this from reaching pure perfection were the apples–not sweet enough! 😦


I also cooked the apples this time [added with the milk after the oat-water mixture boils] so the pieces are a little softer, but not too soft–I definitely like it better this way!

Things I added: oats, water, soy milk, cinnamon, chocolate chips, almonds, walnuts, cashews, bran flakes, vanilla extract and half of a huge apple.

Must experiment with this some more!

Post-yoga snack:


The rest of my apple with PB! Unfortunately, we don’t have the all-natural kind in the house–so the PB was completely tasteless! I don’t even know how I could have liked this stuff before–guess I didn’t know how processed this stuff really was until I’ve tried the real stuff!

More gymnastics tonight! [I didn’t realize there was no event scheduled for last night 😦 ] GO CHINA!

Oatmeal #90 : Nutty August 15, 2008

Vacation going awesome! 😀 Lots of great food and goggling over crazy gymnasts flipping around on the TV [!] screen.

Anyway, Wednesday’s breakfast:

oatmeal-aug13_08 (1)

I found this granola bar while exploring the pantry [SO MUCH FOOD IN THERE] one day and have been excited to add this to my oats ever since! However, I was expecting it to be crunchy [well..the label saids "crunchy and chewy"!] but it wasn’t 😦 I guess I mistaken it for the other kind we used to buy from Costco! But the bar was great–a little too sweet though.


List of stuff:

  • 0.5 cup Quaker oats
  • 0.75 cup water
  • 0.25 cup soy milk
  • 1 tsp almond powder [it’s used to make this almond drink]
  • bit of almond extract
  • two handfuls blueberries
  • 1 tbsp cashews
  • 1 tbsp walnuts
  • 0.5 Nature Valley Sweet & Salty Peanut Bar [but I ended up eating the other half after 😛 ]

    Couldn’t really taste the almond–but I could definitely smell it! 😀



    Congee! I guess it’s kinda like risotto, except without butter and parmesan…and probably without broth as well? 😛 But it was great–haven’t had mom’s congee in ages! Too bad I fell asleep after my run and when I woke up there was like…this tiny bit at the bottom of the pot! 👿

    Dessert–expensive stuff! [Love it when parents spoil me 😀 ]


    The coconut milk was too coconutty though–so I diluted it with water. Mom made this again [we had a huge bag of this stuff] yesterday with almond paste–AWESOME. If it wasn’t near bed time I would have eaten the whole pot 😀

    Can’t wait to watch more gymnastics tonight!
