Sorry guys. I had to add that post yesterday. Especially after the downer post before that. Those cupcakes are one of the best things I've ever made... Plus if you are gonna splurge make it good. Really good.
Yesterday I started feeling awful. Like the body aches, stuffy nose, sore throat kinda thing. I'm not a meatloaf, mac-n-cheese, icecream kind of sick eater. I don't wallow in self sick pity and I don't seek comfort foods. I just want to get better and I know what my cure is.
When I'm sick I eat a crazy amount of fruits and veggies. It may not make me feel better right away but it shortens the amount of time I'm sick.
Breakfast this morning was my sick breakfast. I've done this forever.
Tea, Amazing Grass with almond milk, and toast with honey and chias.
As soon as I start feeling sick I usually start the Amazing Grass. Sometimes the sick feeling goes away. Sometimes it doesn't. This sickness hit me so suddenly that I didn't get to start. I normally do 3 Amazing Grass shooters throughout the day when I'm sick. I don't use it everyday because it's so expensive. I just keep a tub in the freezer and use it for occasions like this.
We went to the pool hoping fresh air would help.
It didn't. The muggy, humid air made things worse.
When we got back I put the husband to work.
He sauteed zucchini, onion, and kale in a pan. Then added fresh tomato, sprouts, hummus, and laughing cow cheese. All on a toasted sandwich thin.
Plus veggie soup.
I don't eat canned soup often because I always think I can make it better. This was REALLY good!
Are you a comfort food or good food eater when you are sick?
I think I'm both because I see a cupcake in my future!
