Happy Tuesday, loves! Hope your morning is great so far.
Yesterday was a rather boring day, still recovering from my illness over here. It’s not getting too much better, so might have to head back clinic, or I guess I could just wait until my doctors appointment Thursday. Have you ever had a migraine? I’ve had a lasting one for about 2 weeks and its driving me slightly insane.
When I’m sick I turn into a complete weirdo, I can only eat foods with certain textures and become extremely picky. I don’t like when things are over cooked. I can’t even stand the thought of putting any form of meat or anything that looks like meat into my mouth. Pancakes and waffles are just too rough for my pleasure. The only things that sounds good to me are foods resembling baby food.
Boy, I sound like a gem. The past 3 days, my food has looked eerily similar to things babies would be eating. I’ve definitely been putting my vita-mix and food processor to good use.
So now I have some fun concoctions to share.
Know what I’ve been loving lately before bed? Coconut cookie dough.
This batch is most certainly a tasty treat.
To make the “cookie dough” I combined a bowl filled with 1/2 cup rolled oats, 1.5 tablespoons coconut flour, 1 tablespoon cashew butter, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, nunaturals vanilla stevia, and 1/4 cup pumpkin.
And then I just mashed everything together with a fork. I bet this would taste even better with pumpkin though. Just because I think everything tastes better with pumpkin. What can I say? I’m in love.
I topped it off with some peanut flour paste before digging in. Peanut butter + cookie dough is my new favourite couple.
Being sick seems to make the days drag by, its not too fun being cooped up in the house all day. Well, actually I have been making an effort to leave the house first thing in the morning to hit up the Starbucks drive thru, because even though I’m sick I can’t get enough of this addiction.
During the afternoons, I’ve been relying on blending cottage cheese, which reminds me of this lady.
This made for a filling snack before dinner. Love the creaminess of it! I just blend 1/2 cup of cottage cheese, with a little greek yogurt (about 1/4 cup), 1 tablespoon cocoa powder, vanilla stevia, and 2 tablespoons pumpkin.
Gimme dat blended cottage cheese, why does it taste so much better blended?! Don’t understand that one.
After the picture, I brought out the nut butter to come out and play. Toppings are always a must.
You’ve got that right, sir.
I’m off to make myself some more tea. I can’t stop drinking it these days. Not that that’s a problem.
Enjoy the rest of your day all!
What’s your favourite snack?
Do you get picky with what you eat when you’re sick?
