Good Sesame/Bad Sesame

We’re halfway through the week! Thank goodness.

As soon as I woke up with a migraine this morning I knew it was going to be a rough day.

Why the headache? Who knows.

Though I don’t think it was from dehydration after my 5 miler last night, I used it as an excuse to order some nuun! (I’ve been wanting to for awhile. :)) Yes, I am beginning to have a running-gear ordering problem. #dontjudge

I ordered the Mixed U Sampler – the natural hydration options.

I’ll let you know what I think!

Anyway, I think I over-did it with my activities/running around yesterday: work, babysitting, the gym, the grocery store, and hanging at Tuna’s. I left my apartment at 9:20am and didn’t get home until 11:00pm. My all day headache showed me I need to slooooowww dooowwwwn today.


As usual, thanks to Jenn for hosting the What I Ate Wednesday link party!

This week, my overnight oats were summery and fresh with a yummy fruit substitute.

Mmm hmm.

Peaches subbed for bananers. It is so yummy with the peaches and blueberries mixed!

I had to run errands for work this afternoon and missed my usual lunch time. By the time I got around to eating at 2:15pm I needed to eat both my lunch and my afternoon snack!

I tried the herb blend of boxed salad this week – yuck! I definitely won’t be buying that again. It’s too flavorful for my plain ass taste. As my friend Mal would say, it tasted like leaves.

However, those sesame sticks are freakin’ amazing. I bought a tub of them yesterday in an attempt to spice up my boring lunch salads and they are a keeper. I can’t wait to eat ’em again tomorrow.

The hummus on the side was my much needed protein. Protein = brain food.

And my favorite flavor:

Lara bars are on sale this week at Whole Foods – go get them while they’re cheap(er)!

My din din tonight was inspired by our WIAW hostess herself. You can find the recipe I used for Quinoa Fried Rice here:

I don’t think my version was as tasty as Jenn’s, but it was still pretty good.

I reached for the soy sauce and instead accidentally poured sesame oil in the skillet. Uh oh. Though I like my sesame sticks, I don’t like sesame oil. This is why I’m Chicken Nugget Girl. I can’t explain why I like one food versus another made of the same thing!

After that mishap, I added a little too much actual soy sauce.

Next time I’ll have to use more vegetables. I only used peas and onions (are onions vegetables? I’ll have to look it up.) Plus, my egg scrambles were too chunky. Lessons learned.

I have been craving my evening snack forever:


Original Puffins and milk!

Have you tried nuun? What’s your favorite flavor?

What did you eat this week?

  1. oh yay! i got a free lara bar sample outside the nats game the other night and it was delish–must go to whole foods and stock up!!

  2. hahahaha yes for the picture of teresa lol I love it. Peaches in oats. Oh man I’m gonna have to get on that. I have tons of peaches right now and was wondering what all I could do with them! Quinoa fried rice is the best. I love making it all the time to bring with me to school for my lunch.

Tell me all the things.
