Apple & PB November 21, 2009Posted by oatmeal in Lunch.

It’s my new favorite combo!
For some reason PB& banana doesn’t seem so appealing to me lately…maybe I have PB&B burnout? I put frozen banana + strained plain yogurt in my oatmeal instead now!
And I took a break from bread baking this week due to having to volunteer at COR and run participants at the sleep lab!
I did my first run this morning and I nearly died…got about 1 hour of sleep in between coming home, eating a huge breakfast [I have to food deprive my subjects because I’m studying water intake!], grocery shopping, and running off at 11 a.m. to run practice sessions for my other participants!
I was actually late for my 11 a.m. appointment 😳 And anyone who has ever had an appointment with me can tell you that I’m always the one who’s 10 minutes early for everything! Rawr.
Anyway, so I didn’t get around to lunch til 2: 30…but man this makes up for all the sleep loss!
PB&A served over crunchy whole wheat toast and cinnamon!
And to prove to you of my new love for PB&A:
This is what I had for breakfast on Nov 16 [Monday]! I guess in this case it was PB&A&F [fig!]
0.5 cup oats, water, milk
1 tbsp wheat germ, 1 tbsp flax
1 gala apple, 1 chopped dried fig
cocoa, dollop yogurt
sunflower & pumpkin seeds, PB
It was good!
Semester countdown: one month until winter vacation!

My breakfast invites you in:
I had this breakfast two days in a row because grapes were on sale and I want to eat them before they go bad! And also because I like grapes and don’t eat them often enough
0.33 cup oats, water, milk
flax, wheat germ
7 grapes, 0.5 small banana, 1 fig!
1 tbsp PB
Same thing, but with goji berries, cocoa powder, chopped up grapes instead of halved ones, and no sunflower seeds! I chop the grapes up because: 1. easier to eat 2. there are seeds in them and I don’t want to be spitting out seeds while I’m supposed to be enjoying breakfast!
And then I got camera happy:
The weather was so nice and warm the entire weekend! Lots of good light for photog-ing
I also had a huge cup of tea [green tea?] with my meal but my cup is too big and would ruin the composition of the photo! I can’t wait to go home for the holidays because I would have nice bowls and cups to play with instead of all these white ones!
And here’s what I’ve been eating for lunch ever since Friday [? or Saturday?]:
Coleslaw, frozen spinach, corn, tofu, bell peppers, grape tomatoes
parm, curry powder, mustard
But I bought feta cheese [$0.99 per tub!] I can add that to the mix as well! Whooo!
AND MIDTERMS ARE FINALLY OVER! 6 weeks and 6 days til I go home for the holidays!
Oatmeal #129: Fig Marshmellows November 7, 2009Posted by oatmeal in Breakfast, Lunch.
Finally found a good time of the day to take pictures! 😀
0.33 cup oats, water
1 tbsp flax + 1 tbsp wheat germ
1 kiwi, 0.5 small banana
1 tbsp PB, drizzled
1 tsp sunflower seeds
1 dried fig, chopped
The fig kinda got hidden under the oat explosion during the microwave process 😛 But it was good! I’ve never had figs before, and once warmed up, they get even softer and chewier and SO GOOD with peanut butter!
Check out the gooeyness! I also had a cup of green tea, but forgot to make it til after the food photog-ing was done!
One last picture:
Taking pictures is fun! 😀
And today’s lunch:
coleslaw, frozen spinach & corn, 5 grape tomatoes, 1 slice tofu, 1/4 of a red bell pepper
topped with: curry powder [my new favorite condiment! 😀 ], parmesan, tiny bit mustard, pepper, worcestershire sauce
A bit on the small side, but held me over til dinner. It’s been a while since I had a lunch so full of different kinds of vegetables!
