Don’t you love those?!

Oct. 6:


  • pumpkin, Muslix cereal, cinnamon, milk, walnuts, flax

After-gym snack:

Banana, greek yogurt, brown rice–if I had some PB this would have been perfect.



Soup with rice, chickpeas, kidney beans, spinach, broccoli. Boringgg did not like 😦

Oct. 7


  • Granny Smith apple, walnuts, apple juice, pumpkin

Oct. 8


  • Banana & PB!, black sesame, coconut, walnuts, flax, milk

Note the use of an actual bowl and using a cup like a cup is supposed to be used! :mrgreen: It was a glorious moment.



Vanilla [?] yogurt, cheerios, raw oats, huge loving splat of PB

dinner-oct8_08 (1)

Chili of some sort [vegetarian?], chickpeas, kidney beans, huge pile of broccoli. I think I went for seconds?

Oct. 9


  • Lipton Apple Manor tea, pumpkin, Muslix cereal, walnuts, cinnamon, milk

The tea smells really good and tastes very cinnamon-y! It’s always awesome when I find tea that’s not bland tasting~



PB&B sandwich, broccoli, chickpeas, kidney beans, parmesan cheese.

That’s all I’m going to post for now ’cause I have a commerce assignment due in….10 hours? 😛

Friday’s breakfast:

oatmeal-sep19_08 (1)

  • oats, flax, walnuts, Kellogg’s JustRight cereal
  • 1 gala apple
  • 0.25 cup apple juice, water
  • 2 tsp black sesame paste powder


This would have made an awesome cookie or muffin flavor! I have no words to describe this combo~

Anyway, this is a pretty short entry, so just for fun, I present to you…


My chem notes! This was after I solved the problem…and then I checked the answers and realized that I am a genius.

Okay not really

Sunday & Monday’s breakfast:

oatmeal-sep16_08 (1)

  • canned pineapples–courtesy of the cafeteria! :mrgreen:
  • 1 tsp shredded, unsweetened coconut
  • 0.25 cup apple juice, 0.5 cup water
  • oats, flax, walnuts

I love how I don’t even bother cooking oatmeal anymore–muesli for the win! You wake up and a nice bowl of oatmeal is all ready to be devoured–more instant than instant oatmeal!


I guess in a way, this could also be called “Summer Is Over–SUCKAZ” Oatmeal 😛

Oh, and on Monday, I finally got my butt out of my room/classes long enough to go restock my oatmeal supply!

 oatmeal-sep16_08 (2)

2 more bags of organic oats! Quaker oats for the loose now that I’ve had organic oats–the chewiness factor is quite difference! Although I will say that Quaker oats are better for soaking up flavors of fruit juices~ [I can’t believe I know this…]

Monday’s post-gym snack:


Something you’ll probably think is gross.

  • 0.5 cup leftover mocha from breakfast
  • 1 packet instant cereal
  • a lot of water
  • splash of milk

Oh, I guess it’s not really that gross–it sounded a lot grosser in my head 😛




I get so excited every time I get PB&B ’cause it is the BEST. I need to seriously go and buy some PB so I can add this awesome to my oatmeal and make it AWESOMENESS TO THE POWER OF THREE. OMG.

Oh, and to end on an even more awesome note: next Saturday’s chem quiz got cancelled! I don’t know why and I don’t care but I am elated

Exciting developments back at the Oatmeal Lab! [aka my messy, pig sty of a room]

What will this:


Look like tomorrow morning? [and/or after I do something crazy like add milk and water?]

Tune in tomorrow [or the day after…] to find out!

And now back to our show:

Today’s breakfast:

Oatmeal #106: No cows – Part II

oatmeal-sep11_08 (1)

Stolen caf food adventures! Snagged a kiwi yesterday, so this morning I get kiwi! 😀

  • oats, flax, walnuts, Kellogg’s Just Right cereal [snagged from inn breakfast buffet 😛 ], water
  • 0.25 cup apple juice
  • 1 kiwi

I thought the kiwi flavor would match that of apple juice ’cause they’re both sweet and sour [in the fruity way, not the chicken McNugget dip way]–and the result was quite awesome! The kiwis definitely helped the fruit juice stand out more so that I could actually taste the combo of oatmeal + juice, as opposed to oatmeal + mildly sweetened water.


I also tried a new kind of tea this morning–chocolate spice tea–awesome, eh?! It did taste quite chocolatey and smooth! I’m not really a tea person, but I liked this! [Unfortunately, the tea bag was from a free sample thing 😦 ]

Pre-first-chem-lab snack:

I thought the lab was going to be three hours long–so I broke out the heavy stuff!


…but I was there for less than half an hour….

Oh well–I’m in no hurry to start lab-ing 😛

Anyway–yeah–Clif bar! I finally have a new flavor to try–Black Cherry Almond. It tastes like it’s got rum in it–am I just crazy?

Dinner/post-first-bio-lab meal:


Since I’m on a 10 meals per week plan [the default meal plan for upper years], I eat breakfast, Sunday dinner [caf is closed], and 2 additional meals away from the cafeteria during the week so I don’t have to cook so much on weekends!

But yeah–I made the pasta salad from above this morning, and added the parmesan in when I got back to my room.

Contains: chickpeas, frozen mixed veg, whole wheat pasta, EVOO, lemon juice, oregano, parmesan

I also bought this:

 dinner-sep11_08 (1)

With flex $$ on my way back ’cause I knew the pasta wouldn’t be enough. The blue cheese dressing is from another salad I had a while ago! I used it with the broccoli, but ate everything else plain ’cause I realized I don’t really like blue cheese that much! It tastes funny~~


Oatmeal #105: Apple Pie – Part IV September 10, 2008

Yesterday’s breakfast:


I guess in some way this is also Experiment #106 – No Cows – Part II, but whatevz!


  • oats, flax, walnuts, Muslix cereal
  • cinnamon & vanilla extract
  • 0.25 cup apple juice, water
  • 1 granny smith apple


Like with the vitamin water–couldn’t really taste it! Maybe I need to add more juice–maybe I’ll do an experiment experiment on the ideal amount to add! :mrgreen:

Anyway, still have lots of apple juice left–so it’s going to make several more appearances on the blog 😀

Post-yoga snack:


Banana + PB!!!!!!!!!!! Nuff said 😀

Post-lunch snack:

snack-sep9_08 (1)

I had 2 of these–cafeteria lunch isn’t very filling…

Dessert/snack [can’t remember if I had this before or after dinner]


Peach yogurt from bag lunch, with Muslix and a very tiny bit of flax on top.

More dessert:

dessert-sep9_08 (1)

The Luna bar! I’ve been wanting to try it all day, since I read about it on blogs so often–so I did! The picture only shows half, but I actually ate all of it 😀

Today’s breakfast:

Felt kinda out of it this morning, and sat down to eat this:


…before I realized I forgot a lot of things!

oatmeal-sep10_08 (1)

There we go 😀

Sorry for poor lighting and stuff!

Anyway, I was going to heat this up, but someone else was in the common room [where the microwave was] so I felt awkward going in and beeping their ears off at 5 a.m. 😛

  • oats, flax, Muslix, walnuts
  • 1 banana
  • 0.25 cup chocolate milk!!! 😀 and 0.25 cup milk

I luv chocolate milk!

Off to dinner! Food blogs make me hungry.

Oatmeal #104: No cows September 9, 2008

Meant to get this up yesterday night, but I was busying have mini-spaz sessions about organic chem and imminent lab reports 😛

Yesterday’s breakfast:

oatmeal-sep8_08 (1)

There was a huge sidewalk sale at my school on Friday, and this one stand was giving out free Vitamin Water–and my dad got me a bottle to try–I got the dragonfruit flavor. Anyway, forgot to take a picture of it, but it’s pink-ish and doesn’t have that medicine smell…but the smell was still weird…just from that alone, you’d never have guessed the drink was supposed to be sweet!

Anyway, to make a long story short, that’s what went into my muesli yesterday instead of milk! [hence the title?]


I didn’t use the whole bottle…just half–I drank half of it the first day ’cause I had a sore throat and didn’t bring enough water!

Capped off my breakfast with a huge thing of iced coffee [half a cup of tall iced caffe Americano from Starbucks–bought it Sunday but never drank it]–which I couldn’t finish. Heh.

Post-gym snack/pre-first class snack:


Vanilla yogurt “stolen” from the free breakfast thing at the inn dad stayed in! I got this on Friday, so I figured I should eat it ASAP since my fridge was getting cluttered! 

I also threw in half a banana and some mixed nuts [salted–dad bought the bag…but ended up giving it to me] on top!

Oh, and yesterday was the first time I’ve ever used the gym at school–I tripped about a billion times on the treadmill! What gives?!

Lunch/post-class meal:


Finally sat down to eat after my Memory and organic chem lectures.

The leftover side: egg from the inn, english muffin [from the caf–heh], spinach & mushrooms [from yesterday’s salad]

The right side: banana [from the morning], PB [from the inn], english muffin, spoon [from the shop at school]

Along with coffee from the morning.

Also ate a small plum and more nuts afterwards~


What I’m going to call a sandwich salad:


Right: before – a nice, normal sandwich [it was spared…for the picture]

Left: after – chainsaw massacre [or maybe plastic knife massacre?]

The sandwich and salad were included as a part of the bag lunch I got from the caf~they always put too much meat in one sandwich, so I decided to throw them both together 😀

Salad: lettuce, tomato slice [heh there was literally one slice], cucumber, carrots, wheat bread, turkey, Granny Smith apple


My don [or residence admin person] came around everyone’s door to ask about our first day of classes and she had candy!

How do you say no to free candy??
