Daily Eats – 10/19/11

Oh look, I actually did what I said I was going to for once! I took pictures of my food! Sorry for the iPhone pics… I was lazy. Something’s better than nothing? 🙂


– 1/2 cup uncooked oats, soaked in water overnight
– 2 tbps almond milk
– 1 heaping tbps pumpkin
– Pumpkin pie spice
– Crumbled mini-cookie on top, hehe.

Morning Snack

– Grrrrrapes


– Spaghetti squash
– Sauce with ground turkey, broccoli, spinach, onion, garlic, and deliciousness

– Fuji apple w/ 1 tbsp peanut butter

Afternoon Snack

– 3 sips of this tiny V8 before I got grossed out. Good in Bloody Marys, yes. Good for regular drinking, no.

A bowl of beige-y goodness:
– Pretzel crisps
– Pita chips
– Hummus
– Horseradish mustard


– Roasted chicken leg
– Asparagus
– TJ’s mushroom ravioli, Sandra Lee’d up with some thyme and fresh button mushrooms.

I feel like I did good, for once, hahaha. ‘Til next time!


  1. Gah – I’m with you on the low-sodium V8! I just ended up with a 48-can case from Costco of the swill… eh, I mean, veggie juice. 😉 I love the regular V8, but the low-sodium is just nasty. Whoops!


  2. A thousand points to Gryffindor for the horseradish mustard.

    • A) I love this comment so hard I want to have babies with it.
      B) Horseradish ANYTHING PLZ.

  3. What’s the deal with the overnight oats? I’ve never heard of soaking oats overnight but I’m interested as to what it is and what kind of oats they are haha!

    • They’re just regular raw oats (not the instant kind) that I soak in water overnight to soften them, make cooking time basically nothing, and save on milk. I soak them in water, then drain the water in the morning and add all my “ingredients” (almond milk, maple syrup, agave, brown sugar, pumpkin, peanut butter, etc, etc), then I microwave it when I get to work. If I wasn’t so lazy in the mornings I would actually heat it on the stove but… you know. 😛

  4. I’m with you on the tomato juice – how can something that tastes so good with vodka taste so gross alone? (I guess it’s the absence of all the spices?)

    PS. I WANT that horseradish mustard.
