Random Eats

Things I’ve eaten in the past 48 hours


A bland cranberry oatmeal.


Despite looking like one of the more attractive oatmeal breakfasts, this was… eurgh.


Some extremely colorful lunch dishes. Carrot pureed soup, salad and multigrain bread. I’m going to be straight with you, I ran my spoon through that soup dish at least 20 times trying to make the swirls look swirlier. Doesn’t it look sort of like a rose? Is it just me because I spent so much time looking at it?


Half a Bali Indonesian Wrap from the Veggie Grill. It was sort of bland to be honest, I smothered it in Annie’s BBQ sauce. I DO love tempeh though. I’ve got to see about buying and preparing some myself.


Watery cranberry oatmeal too. I am SO sick of cranberries but I don’t feel right not eating oatmeal in the morning.  I made tomorrows with absolutely NO cranberries, thank goodness!

I had lots of other snacks and such. Including way too much dark chocolate because that is my movie theatre snack of choice and I saw two movies: Midnight in Paris and Fright Night. I was scared to death during Fright Night but my friend-that’s-a-boy-but-not-exactly-a-boyfriend-but-pretty-much-as-close-as-it-gets made a really cute recommendation. He couldn’t make it to the movie so he told me to hold my phone because he would be holding his and it would be like holding each other’s hands. Adorable and cheesy, right?

I definitely prefered Fright Night though, there were just NO likable characters in Midnight in Paris. Everyone was too romantic/idealistic or too factual and… sigh. Both were fun though. Great way to celebrate my sister’s birthday!


Overnight Oatmeal Tutorial

30 Aug

Step One – cut a hole in the box Put some fruit in your bowl, fruit-on-the-bottom style!


Step Two – Put 1/3 cup of oats (or so) on top of the fruit!


Step Three – Add a binding agent such as ground flax or chia seeds (I used both)


Step Four- Add some more fruit because you really like fruit.


Step Five- Add enough milk to cover everything and then some.


Step Six- (am I staying in number order?) WHISK AWAY! This is the fun part, I usually bounce around the kitchen while whisking and end up spilling half my bowl on my clothes. Whoops!


Step Seven – Realize that you added too much milk so add some more binders. Also, throw some cinnamon while you’re at the spice drawer.IMG_1210

This was my breakfast today! It was really sweet and delicious without ANY added sugar. My favorite kind of breakfast.

For lunch, I prepped some carrot fries. They’re still baking right now. I’ll probably eat them with some BBQ sauce and for the entrée, a open-faced Mediterranean sandwich with cucumbers and olives? We’ll see!
