Making due.

by Jenn (eating bender) on May 15, 2008

I had planned to make a fabulous lunch at home today. Keyword: had.

Instead I did a last minute good deed and helped Bobby out. He bought a new bed but they were supposed to come deliver it during his class, so I graciously agreed to wait in his apartment for the delivery guy.

Now I may be making a rash generalization (and if so, please forgive me) but…

boy apartment + healthy food = a cruel joke

So I had to make due amongst all the packaged “goodies” and find something filling and edible. I settled on a mixture of Quaker Oat Squares and Frosted Mini-Wheats.

Not the most balanced meal, but it was enough to get me through class. I also grabbed a Special K Strawberry bar to eat later on.

BREAKFAST: Oatmeal Raisin Cookie

Breakfast was much more pleasing to the eye and stomach. No, it wasn’t exactly a cookie – but it sure tasted like one!

The sweetness of the whipped bananas and maple syrup combined with the chewiness of the oats and raisins makes this concoction quite similar to a cookie. I added a spoonful of Cinnamon Raisin Swirl peanut butter (which I compared to cookie dough yesterday) to create a truly decadent experience :)

To top of breakfast, I had a delicious mug of Coffee Cocoa with some extra cocoa powder on top for good measure!

That lunch didn’t quite hold me over (surprise, surprise) so I will likely have a snack before dinner. Grey’s Anatomy is on tonight – I can’t wait! Is it just me, or has it somewhat returned to the better days of earlier seasons? I thought it might be going downhill for a while…but I’m glad it didn’t :)

“See” you later!

You’re not making a rash generalization – you’re stating a fact my friend, haha. Guys aren’t usually known for having the best eating habits (at least, that’s always the case with my guy friends, haha). Kudos for finding something to eat!

Ahh, your oatmeal-raisin-cookie-tasting breakfast looks PHENOMENAL!! yummmmmy :0)

Enjoy ‘Grey’s’ tonight! The episodes have gotten better “post-writer’s strike,” I think.

Haha~I don’t understand why so many guys eat the way they do! But I’m impressed you managed to dig up some reasonably nutritious food despite the challenge XD

And yum~~I love anything with the words “cinnamon swirl” and “raisins”~but I never knew they have that as a PEANUT BUTTER flavor! The food industry amazes me sometimes.

I think Grey’s has definitely gotten better post-strike! I notice the same with a lot of other shows as well~

Eeep, good job on finding healthy choices!

I have a hate for Special K and their desire to look so amazing and healthy – when it’s just nooooooooothing special.
