Who Wants a Treat?!

by Jenn (eating bender) on March 10, 2009

Guess what?! My mom told me that the “somethings” I have planned for the upcoming blog anniversary arrived safely in glorious Arizona this afternoon :) I am so pumped!

In the meantime, there’s another goodie waiting at the bottom of this post! So go ahead and scroll down to the bottom read the rest of my post thoroughly.

Well ladies and gents, I am officially beat! I had my final marketing presentation on Ben & Jerry’s at class tonight. I think it went well, but one can never be too sure about these things! We ended up having pizza in class, so I will share what I ate up until that point with you!


Breakfast this morning was a so-good-you’d-think-it-was-bad-for-you bowl of whipped banana oatmeal. I think it was the extra ripe banana that made this bowl so sweet. I combined the usual 1/2 cup oats with 1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup almond milk, 1/2 sliced banana and 1 tbsp. ground flax. Then I topped it with a Justin’s Almond Butter packet, which made it extra creamy and nutty.


[Breakfast Net Sugar: 1g (from almond butter)]

I spent the morning going absolutely insane with my econ paper. The actual content of the paper is done, but the appendices, figures and tables are driving me up the wall. It’s just me being a perfectionist, but I can’t wait for it to be out of my life :) I ended up visiting my professor in her office to make sure I was on the right track, then took the opportunity to head to the gym. I did 45 minutes on the elliptical and then came home and did P90X Core Synergistics.

I felt revitalized afterward, and definitely ready for lunch.


Another winner in my book! I scrambled up another 1 egg + 2 egg white combo (seriously, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the 1 whole egg makes such a difference!) with 1/4 of that huge cucumber 😉 Glad you all enjoyed the “that’s what she said” joke with that one. At the same time, I toasted a La Tortilla Factory wrap with 2 oz. deli turkey. I put everything together on top of the wrap, but it was so voluminous that it wouldn’t close, so I just threw on some reduced-fat Mexican cheese, pepper and Goya Adobo and ate it with a fork. Yum!


I also had my first Coffee Cocoa of the day. You knew it was coming at some point, right?


[Lunch Net Sugar: 8g]

After eating this voluminous lunch, I literally sat on my bed for the rest of the day and cranked this paper out. Yeah, I do homework on my bed. I’ll save the desk chair for after graduation! I did get off my rear mid-afternoon for a snack. It was yet another winner.


Looking at this picture makes me want to eat it all over again! This was a Fuji apple topped with 3 tbsp. PB2 and cinnamon. Honestly, try it!


[Snack Net Sugar: 3g]

Then it was off to class. All the anxiety and preparation for my presentation really kicked my appetite into high gear, so I enjoyed my slices of Papa John’s cheese pizza very much :)

[Dinner Net Sugar: 6g]

Total Added Sugar: 18g

I just realized that it was a great day for the Subtracting Added Sugar challenge! It’s really becoming second nature to me, and I’m only 4 days in. There is very little planning required, and I think what’s been key for me is that I bought a whole bunch of produce last time I was at the grocery store. Knowing I need to use it up keeps me inspired to come up with ways to integrate more fruits and veggies into my meals, which inevitably ups the “sweetness” factor in a natural way. So add this to my list: buying the right foods at the grocery store is key. I’m sure most of you knew that one already, but I do have a tendency to grab packaged foods off the shelves because they “look interesting.” This new challenge is teaching me that there are better options at the front of the store.

Giveaway Time!!

You might have seen this giveaway on some awesome food blogs already (click on that link to see what the prize actually looks like!). Well, here’s another chance to win! The folks at Quaker have offered to give one lucky reader an “All Natural Gift Bag” that includes a robe and slippers made with organic, earth-friendly materials, plus a few boxes of their newest flavor of Quaker Simple Harvest Chewy Granola Bars – Trail Mix!

Enter to win by doing one or all of the following:

  • Leave a comment on this post telling me about your favorite Quaker product
  • Ask a question on my call for FAQ post, then come back here and tell me that you did
  • Link back to this contest on your own blog
  • No blog? Send an email to eatingbender@gmail.com with subject, “Quaker Trackback”

The contest will run until Friday, March 13 at 13:00 CST (aka 1:00). I figure I can end somebody’s fear of “Friday the 13th” by picking a lucky winner on an unlucky day :) CLEVER.



Countdown to Arizona: 1.5 days!

Wishing you sunshine on a cloudy day,


1 Maggie March 10, 2009 at 10:19 pm

2 Maggie March 10, 2009 at 10:20 pm

3 Marianne March 10, 2009 at 10:21 pm

I think regular old Quaker oats are my fave product, because I can do so many things with them!

And congrats on finishing that paper 😀

4 Bec March 10, 2009 at 10:24 pm

6 sals March 10, 2009 at 10:27 pm

this may be boring, but I do love the old-fashioned quaker oats! what a fun giveaway

7 CLB March 10, 2009 at 10:34 pm

Well the oats of course…:)

8 Hangry Pants March 10, 2009 at 10:34 pm

Thanks for the shout out girlfriend. I can attest that the robe is really soft and warm!

I think I need to try this PB2 stuff. Also, I am v. proud of your sugar consumption!

9 suzanne March 10, 2009 at 10:37 pm

My favorite is old fashioned oats made in many different ways :)

10 sue March 10, 2009 at 10:38 pm

i’m gonna have to go with old fashioned quaker oats!

11 Sweet and Fit March 10, 2009 at 10:44 pm

your lunch seriously looks amazing! I had a *whole egg* instead of 2 whites this morning and you are so right, it really makes a huge difference! thanks for an amazing giveaway! MY favorite Quaker product are their Old-fashioned oats, but I was obsesses with their chewy granola bars in high school =)

12 lindsay March 10, 2009 at 10:51 pm

good old quaker old fashioned oats are a staple for me!

13 snackface March 10, 2009 at 10:52 pm

Don’t you love to smear p.b./a.b. on the top of oats like icing? My fave method. I don’t know what it is lately, but whenever I see deli meat I want it! I should think about that…

I’ve written a paper or two on my bed as well! I think living in a dorm fresh and soph years taught me how to do h.w. on my bed. I’m so happy for you that you only have 1.5 days! You sooo deserve the break!

Mmmm Quaker! My favorite thing lately has been the True Delights in the banana macadamia coconut. So amazing I think it’s dessert!

14 Marissa March 10, 2009 at 11:02 pm

I totally agree that in the egg white scheme of things one whole egg makes a BIG difference!


15 Sara March 10, 2009 at 11:03 pm

I can’t help it – old fashioned!! I live in Korea and it’s so hard to get it so I actually have my mom SHIP IT OVER to me on a regular basis. If that’s not love and commitment to a product, I don’t know what is.
PS – I hope she get to ship over that yummy robe and slippers soon!

16 Denise March 10, 2009 at 11:04 pm

I would love this goodie bag. =)

17 Laura March 10, 2009 at 11:05 pm

Rolled Oats by far are my favorite product!

18 Caroline March 10, 2009 at 11:08 pm

Isn’t Justin’s the best? I really need to re-order some soon–I used up a few packets on my recent trip to DC.

La Tortilla Factory should hire you–you are the queen of LTF creations. They always look fantastic!

As for the giveaway:
-My favorite Quaker product=Simple Harvest oatmeal packets
-I left a question on your FAQ page!

19 Katie March 10, 2009 at 11:15 pm

Favorite product – the regular old oats! I have a new flavor of one of their many kinds of granola bars that I will be trying out soon, too.

I can’t wait for my order of PB2 to come tomorrow! I have an apple sitting on the conunter in anticipation!

20 healthyadelphi March 10, 2009 at 11:19 pm

Hey Jenn, just started reading your blog, I love it! I’ve taken some of your shopping suggestions and such. I write my own blog for my University..just started up a couple of months ago, it’s been fun! Also…you’re from Arizona?? Where at? I live in Flagstaff.

http://healthyadelphi.blogspot.com just in case you want to check out my stuff. Keep up the great work <3

21 Misty March 10, 2009 at 11:46 pm

My favorite, by far, are the chocolate drizzle mini delights! As for their “regular” oatmeal, though, my favorite is the Maple and Brown Sugar Weight Control instant oats. I haven’t really experimented much with the oats that take longer to cook, though I plan to start experimenting soon!

22 Ellen March 11, 2009 at 12:46 am

i love quaker’s old fashioned oats!

23 Ellen March 11, 2009 at 12:50 am

btw- I just posted a question for your FAQ as well!

24 Emmy March 11, 2009 at 12:53 am

Plain ‘ole Quaker Oats.
Definitely a fav.


25 Sarah March 11, 2009 at 12:56 am

Have you tried blended oats yet? I swear if you put almond butter on top, it tastes like a big ole bowl of almond butter. Can you imagine anything better than that?

26 Lisa March 11, 2009 at 1:08 am

I love the Quaker instant oatmeal. We keep it in the house.

27 The Healthy Hostess March 11, 2009 at 2:38 am

Oats are the best! But I do love the True Delight Bars, I have not bought any yet, just enjoyed the ones they sent!

28 coco March 11, 2009 at 3:25 am

fav. quaker product: definitely its old fashion oats! 😀

29 Heather Eats Almond Butter March 11, 2009 at 4:15 am

What a fun giveaway – I want that robe! I’ll totally send you some link love on my next post!

Wow, so glad the no added sugar challenge is going well,and way to stock up on the fresh veggies and produce! I bet the apple with PB2 was an amazing salty/sweet combo. I should try it, but I’m hoarding the last of my PB2…for what, I don’t know, but I’m so sad it’s almost gone. In sticking with my goal of no online nut butter orders, this may be my last jar for a while. :(

I ate your salmon salad for dinner last night, but used canned wild Alaskan salmon from Costco. Why is Bone Suckin Sauce so amazing?!?

Glad your presentation went well, and only 1.5 days?!? You’re so close my friend!

30 MizFit March 11, 2009 at 4:22 am

Hey girl! How exciting that you’re getting closer and closer to being done with school! Your egg mixes always look so good! Seriously, I like crave eggs after reading your posts :)

My current favorite quaker product is their old fashioned oats. They have multiple uses in my life- homemade granola, tina’s bars, regular morning oatmeal, pancakes, etc etc! I can’t live without them 😉

Hope you have a good day :) Glad your presentation went well! Phew!

34 Marisa (trim the fat) March 11, 2009 at 5:21 am

Oh, cool giveaway – I need a new robe!!!

42 Emily March 11, 2009 at 6:18 am

Love the apple + PB2 combo. It looks so good!
Glad your presentation went well. I always feel like that after a presentation..I think and hope it went well, but I can never be too sure. Yours was probably great, though!

My favorite Quaker product is oatmeal (of course). :-) I also linked back to you on my blog!

Have a great day, Jenn!

43 sweetandnatural March 11, 2009 at 6:19 am

The quarter is almost over – hooray! Am I boring if I say my favorite Quaker product is old-fashioned oats?! They’re just so versatile!

44 Sarah March 11, 2009 at 6:38 am

45 Courtney (The Hungry Yogini) March 11, 2009 at 6:39 am

Good job at keeping your net sugar low! I’m sure mine is something like 92834897 grams. Glad your presentation went well!!

I am on old school kind of gal- old fashioned oats for me!

46 Kaley March 11, 2009 at 7:05 am

I love, love, love the bar with dark chocolate chunks in it. Mmmm so delicious.

47 Kaley March 11, 2009 at 7:07 am

I asked a question on your FAQ! :)

48 Erin March 11, 2009 at 7:07 am

53 Betsy March 11, 2009 at 7:31 am

Regular Quaker oatmeal is my favorite because you can make so many different things with it and add lots of different stuff and it all tastes good!

54 Whitney March 11, 2009 at 7:34 am

I love free meals in class! My favorite Quaker product is just plain ol’ oatmeal…I’m boring like that. Plus they always remind me of Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies which are one of my favorite things ever. Have an awesome end of your term, and a safe trip home!!

55 jeannie March 11, 2009 at 7:36 am

I love ALL things Quaker! Thanks for offering the giveaway!

56 Emily March 11, 2009 at 7:36 am

OATBRAN! my favorite. with PB2 and banana, cooked in coffee! mmmmmm….

57 Jaclyn March 11, 2009 at 7:37 am

I heart Quaker anything!!

58 CaSaundra March 11, 2009 at 7:42 am

Way to go on your sugar challenge! It can definitely be tough, because it can be lurking where we least expect it! My favorite Quaker product is by far the Oatmeal Squares Cereal–it can really pump of the volume of any bowl to make it extra yummy.

59 Emily March 11, 2009 at 7:47 am

That wrap looks awesome! I will have to try it, im always trying to think of new ideas for wraps.

My fave quaker oats product would have to be just their quick cook oats. I eat them almost everyday and my pantry is always stocked!

60 Diana March 11, 2009 at 7:48 am

Fave Quaker Product: Their old-fashioned oats…so nice and chewy…I think I like them better than steel cut oats!

The Question I asked on the FAQ: How do you motivate yourself to workout when you’re feeling particularly tired, cranky, or otherwise not in the mood to workout?

I’m off to link to your contest…thanks for hosting! :)

61 Sarah March 11, 2009 at 7:48 am

I used to live off of quaker quick oats… but on this ast trip to the grocery store I decided to give old fashioned a try. They are now my new fave- old fashion beats out quick in my book.

73 Danielle March 11, 2009 at 8:43 am

LOL. Great post, food looks scrumptious!!!!

90 lisaheartspizza March 11, 2009 at 10:09 am

I always(ALWAYS!) put too much in my wrap and can’t close it up. I also did a business project on B&J but when you’re in VT it’s easy to go to their headquarters and dig up info(it’s super cool they have a slide in their office that goes from the 2nd to first floor) and they give all the visitors free ice cream!

91 Anne K. March 11, 2009 at 10:11 am

I love their old-fashioned rolled oats! I eat them just about everyday (on other days I eat their oat bran, haha!)

92 Courtney March 11, 2009 at 10:30 am

I love the Quaker Oatmeal Squares cereal! Yummy! It is so good and crunchy. I have only tried the brown sugar kind, but I can’t wait to try the other flavors.

93 Courtney March 11, 2009 at 10:30 am

And I left a question on your FAQ page.

94 Denise March 11, 2009 at 10:37 am

I do the one whole egg with the egg whites, too. You’re right, it makes such a big difference.

I’m adding you to my favorites right now, great blog!

Oh, and good old fashioned quaker oats are my favorite!

95 Marie March 11, 2009 at 10:39 am

Quaker Quick Oats are what my husband and i eat for breakfast most mornings so that would be our favorite and also since we are watching our cholesterol, eating it really helps.

I would SO love to win this contest.

96 sarahdbelle March 11, 2009 at 10:41 am

I’m a big fan of Quaker’s oatmeal in the canister- a classic but a goody!

97 Marie March 11, 2009 at 10:44 am

P.S. – I just asked you a question on your “Call for FQ Post”


98 Leah March 11, 2009 at 10:49 am
99 Keegan March 11, 2009 at 11:15 am

104 healthy ashley March 11, 2009 at 11:26 am

I do homework on my bed, too. I live on my own so I have a whole house and multiple chairs I could work from… yet I still choose my bed?!

I love Quaker oats and Oatmeal Squares! I eat a Quaker product every day!

105 Leslie March 11, 2009 at 11:26 am

pick me pick me! looks so good!

106 Joleen March 11, 2009 at 11:30 am

Why does your PB2 look so much better than mine? Thanks for inspiring me to dig it out and mix some up.

107 Anne K. March 11, 2009 at 11:50 am

I posted a question on your FAQ page 😀

108 krittie March 11, 2009 at 11:51 am

I think I have to be borning and say Oatmeal! There are just so many things to add to it I can’t get enough of it! I also wanted to let you know that I mentioned you on my blog today!

109 Carrie March 11, 2009 at 12:20 pm

Call me boring, but I honestly love the good old fashioned oats, so versatile. My second choice would be the instant diet/low cal packs in banana bread. Oats and banana, it doesn’t get much better than that!

110 Sharon March 11, 2009 at 12:21 pm

Oh my gosh, delicious delicious!
And my favorite quaker product? Old fashioned oats! =D

111 lilveggiepatch March 11, 2009 at 12:36 pm

Plain old fashioned oats. Perfect breakfast!

112 angelcubbie March 11, 2009 at 12:36 pm

My favorite quaker product is easily Oat Bran right now! Closely followed by Quaker Old Fashioned.

113 Jen March 11, 2009 at 12:59 pm

OATS! although i really want to try oat bran now, just haven’t been able to find it anywhere yet!

114 Jessica March 11, 2009 at 1:06 pm

Nice giveaway – I love quaker old-fashioned rolled oats

Your oats look delicious! And the apple and PB2 snack as well! Can you tell a difference in the taste of PB2?? I have seen it around before but I am hesitant to buy it because I am afraid it will taste a bit off?

166 Kristie Lynn March 11, 2009 at 9:42 pm

Oh, and I left a question for you on your FAQ post. :)

167 Ariel March 11, 2009 at 9:49 pm

169 Stephanie March 12, 2009 at 12:35 am

Gotta love those oats ’cause you can use them for breakfast, lunch and dinner!! For example tonight I used them on my dinner when I made “Slammen Salmon Cakes” using oats in place of breadcrumbs. I also adden them to my fresh baked pumkin bread for added nutrients! Yummmm OATS!!

My favorite Quaker product is Life cereal. :)

171 Lisa March 12, 2009 at 4:02 am

I buy the costco sized box of old-fashioned quaker oats and eat from it at least once, if not twice, a day. It lasts me for months, but there is nothing as good as a steaming bowl of oatmeal.

172 Stephanie March 12, 2009 at 4:15 am

The toasted oatmeal squares. BEST CEREAL EVER!
