I’m in major confusion over everything in my orgo textbook. My exam is in two days. Verdict: SCREWED.

And when trouble comes my way, I procrastinate.

Oatmeal #137: Tropical Smoothie – Part II

  • mango yogurt smoothie, PB, coconut, raisin granola, flax

The caf served these smoothies on Sunday–which was majorly exciting! Once in a while they’d spoil us like this…

Long story short: I took some of that stuff home for oatmeal! 😀 Dessert for breakfast for the win!

Nov 25

  • Golden Delicious apples, sliced blanched almonds, flax, cottage cheese, PB, brown sugar

This week’s oatmeal has been so full of excitement! I haven’t had brown sugar in my oatmeal since…high school? That was how my mom made them! 😀

Question: What did your first bowl of oatmeal consist of?


Turkey breast + eng muffin + jam, peas

The lack of sleep is driving me nuts. Not to mention the fact that the chairs at the lab are extremely uncomfortable for sleeping on 😦 It’s at times like these that I wish I was a midget…

I actually ended up having a second all-nighter after the first [well…I did sleep for about 4.5 hours…so I guess it’s an all-night wannabe :mrgreen: ]…the inner workings of yeast turned me into a zombie for two days…

Nov 5

  • mandarin oranges, pineapple, milk, flax, PB


Corn, peas, peppers, eggs, chickpeas, kidney beans, hummus sandwich

Corn~<3. I kinda want to bring out the veggie oatmeal again~but no time to go grocery shopping! [the store’s like…half an hour away D: ]

Nov 6

  • mango, papaya, pears, pineapples, PB, milk, flax, cinnamon, ground ginger

It’s canned fruits, just so you know 😛 No way I would have had access to real papayas and mangoes! Although I wouldn’t have any objections if the caf decides to bring that stuff out 😀


Broccoli, cauliflower, hummus sandwich



This is like fore-shadowing…I haven’t drank coffee in the afternoon since first year..

Nov 7


  • pears, walnuts, cocoa, cinnamon, ground ginger, milk, flax

+ orange spice white tea. I don’t like the dried orange peel smell, but the tea didn’t taste bad or anything~

My awesome dinner:

Jasmine rice, black beans, zucchini, ,red pepper, carrots, mushrooms, ginger hoisin sauce

LOVE jasmine rice! It smells even better than normal rice–which I didn’t think was possible until I took a whiff~and that is why food is so awesome 😀 [other than the fact that y’know…we need it to live]

I originally planned on going to the gym today…but I don’t feel like it…so maybe I won’t go 😛 I have a commerce assignment due tomorrow anyway~

Experiment #36: Mangoes – Part II June 8, 2008

mango, zucchini, egg, soy nuts, walnuts, milk

Yesterday’s breakfast!
And there goes the last of my mango! But well worth it 😀 Didn’t even need to add sugar ’cause the fruits were sweet enough! The addition of zuchini was purely for decorative purposes–my breakfast was a little too orange for my taste.

colors make the world go round!

Went to eat brunch at Morisson’s restaurant yesterday with my housemates so no pictures! But I had a huge pancake [I spread egg yolk on it instead of syrup ’cause I’m interesting :mrgreen: ], french toast, 2 eggs [so many eggs in one day!], 2 sausages [there were 3 but I couldn’t finish!], and a huge strawberry milkshake–all for $10! I was stuffed and I got my money’s worth–although I think I’m going to take a break from eggs for the next couple of days!

Didn’t feel like cooking when I got home last night, so for dinner I microwaved some frozen veggies, zucchini, and had that along with leftover polenta and potatoes, topped with some Classico Red Wine & Herb sauce.

I’m glad I didn’t make myself cereal, or else I would have exploded! I didn’t expect the bowl of veggies to turn out this big when I pictured it in my head~ Oh, and I finished my bag of soy nuts! 😦 I want to go buy some more…but I’ve been to the grocery store so many times now that the cashier lady could probably recognize me…

Experiment #35: Mangoes June 7, 2008

Yesterday’s oatmeal:

mango, blueberries, walnuts, soy nuts, milk

Have I ever mentioned how much I like colors? :mrgreen:
On another note–one mango either doesn’t seem to yield much, or I’m not cutting it properly…there’s this large chunk in the middle I couldn’t cut through….and the process was really messy, although I didn’t really mind ’cause it tasted good 😀

Contrasting shades are awesome and tasty!

For lunch, leftover polenta!

The one to the right is topped with baked beans and frozen veggies, the one on the left is topped with chicken breast…only the flavor of the chicken wasn’t enough so I turned it into ham & cheese polenta:

yay flavors!

For dessert, plain yogurt flavored with coffee and cherry-blueberry jam:

A new flavor of yogurt is born!

For dinner: the bag of brussel sprouts I bought yesterday morning!

Haven’t had those in ages so I was so excited! [It seems like I haven’t had a lot of food in ages…what the hell am I doing to myself?!] They’re so filling it’s amazing~ 😀

Anyway, I made“sushi” using two pieces of rye bread, zucchini, and rice vinegar…as you can see…my craving for japanese food has turned my imagination upside down..
