Hey friends! Another week of sharing delicious eats and creations through What I Ate Wednesday.
Let’s hop right in to some good stuff.
That saying is so odd, I always laugh at people when they say “I’m going to hop in the shower”, because I just imagine them jumping in the shower. Okay, enough weirdo tangents…
I woke up this morning really wanting to go to spin class. I went through all the motions, but my head wasn’t “all there”.
I went, despite those feelings, because I just thought it was early and I’d eventually wake up. Bad idea.
I came home only to feel worse. Headache, sore throat and feeling generally queasy. Yuck.
Plain Banana Buckwheat. I melted a little coconut oil on top. Fabulous idea.
I was thankful I had prepped a bowl of overnight oats the day before, because I really didn’t feel like getting up to make any food.
I did have to go to an appointment, so despite feeling bad I had to get ready. Plus a Starbucks trip x 2.
When I got home, I went on a cleaning rampage. I’m not too sure why, but whenever I’m sick I get into little cleaning frenzies. I guess it’s because I hate sitting still.
2 slices ezekiel, almond butter, spinach and an egg.
I had no appetite, but decided I should make something in hopes of feeling better. No dice.
I was thankful my friend, Heather, let me know she’d be free for a skype chat, so I had someone to talk to and take my mind off this (hopefully) 24 hour flu.
As soon as I got off the computer I fell asleep. How productive.
I never, ever, ever nap so this was like a mini miracle. I can’t remember the last time I ever napped. Must have been years ago.
The thing with naps is that you wake up starving, well, at least I do.
Thanks goodness it was Dinner time.
I wanted food 10 minutes ago, so I snacked on a bowl of strawberries while waiting for my soup to heat up.
I was super thankful I had one last serving of parsnip and sweet potato soup leftover.
Since I didn’t get to snack earlier in the day, I’m still a little hungry this evening.
I brewed up a cup of tea to have while writing up this post and before catching up on American Horror Story (holy, scary) from last week.
My plan is to finish the day with my favorite protein muffin.
Muffin, plus coconut cream and peanut flour frosting.
Perfect way to end the night. Let’s hope tomorrow I wake up feeling a-okay.
Hopefully this nap doesn’t prevent me from getting to sleep tonight.
Any remedies for sickness?
What are your go to meals on days you feel ill?
Do you like taking naps?
Have a fabulous day!
