WIAW, the cold that never was

I’ve been downing Vitamin-C like it’s candy, trying to ward off the inevitable back-to-school cold. I’m surprised I made it all the way to October first without feeling like death warmed over.

I’m sick, but I’m not sick. It’s odd.

What’s not odd? I’m joining Jenn for the What I ate Wednesday linky party.

Pictured are actually Saturday’s eats. I forgot my camera, and my phone, today. But, ever the girl scout, I planned ahead on Saturday just in case I ran out of time to document Wednesday’s eats.


Pumpkin pie Steel Cut Oats

My first steel cut oats experience! I was very impressed with the results. Chewy and nutty. Plus I made enough for breakfast on Monday and Tuesday. Yes, you can eat 3-day-old oats. Just add a splash of milk, or non-dairy milk of your choosing, and reheat in the microwave. Ding! breakfast in a flash 🙂

Pre-gym snack

Cranbran Vitatop

I found these bad boys at Safeway* in the 50% section. They aren’t even close to being expired. Perhaps Vitatop is doing some repackaging? I hope they weren’t 50% off because they are discontinuing this flavor. It was delicious! Much better than the chocolate varieties.

*I broke my no-Safeway rule, as Trader Joe’s hasn’t opened yet, and I really like the clearance section at Safeway


Corned beef sandwich w/laughing cow and horseradish

Key lime spiked H2O

50% off Fage


I thought my monster walk session would blast away the sickie germs, but no dice. They still hovered over my head, trying to break through. I combated them with nearly homemade worthy tomato soup, sourdough bread and Eat, Pray, Love.


A few of these may, or may not, have sneaked in too.


They are pretty much amazing. High fructose corn syrup never tasted so good.

What is your favorite sickie guilty pleasure?
