Daily eats of a Torontonian student

Dillicious April 1, 2009

I felt like switching things up a bit today and had snack type food for breakfast, and breakfast type food for snack.  Which means I started off the morning with a banana spread with sunflower seed butter and an apple.

Late in the morning I had a seitan burger, green pepper, and a carrot.  The steak sauce in the picture I used for dipping my lunch

For lunch I did a complete repeat of last night’s dinner.  More butternut squash fries, sliced zucchini, and roasted chicken breast.  That is one good meal.  Am I weird in that I usually hate cooked zucchini but love it raw?  It just gets so mushy when it’s cooked.

My afternoon snack was some Dorset Cereals Fruits, Nuts, and Seeds cereal.

Dorset cereals have been gazing at me from the grocery store shelves, longing for me to pick them up for years now.  But for some reason I never did.  I don’t know why, this one is pretty awesome and I don’t see how any of the other flavours could go wrong.  I think that might be one of the problems, too many awesome sounding flavours and I could never decide which one to try first.

All the cereals are packed with dried fruits, nuts and seeds (30-60% depending on the flavour) along with rolled grains and flakey bits.  The thing that provoked me to finally buy a box is that the Fruits, Nuts and Seeds variety now contains pumpkin seeds.  I love pumpkin seeds.  And I’m so glad I did because this cereal is seriously good, you can tell all the add-ins are seriously high quality (and chilean flame raisins are incredible!). I also like that there is no extra sugar added (besides the sweetened banana chips) and I’d like to try cooking this up like oatmeal. I think next time I should try a berry heavy variety….

When I got home all I wanted was pickles.  I figure that wouldn’t make much of a dinner, so I filled the meal out with a romaine heart with some caesar dressing, and plate of Mary’s Herb crackers and cheddar cheese.

My roomie introduced me to the pickles and cheese combination years ago, and I must admit, it is oddly addicting.

And dinner ended with a sweet dessert of Algerian dates dipped in peanut butter.
