When I'm sick I don't eat a ton of food during the day but I definitely make the meals I eat count...I try to get as much nutrition as I can. Check out what I ate today...
This is probably one of my favorite plates I've shared so far. I think it is really beautiful and colorful...in fact it has the 2/3 of the spectrum on one plate :) I had 1/2 an avocado on a GF english muffin and some fruit from my edible arrangement. I ate this a bit late because I had coffee first which killed the little appetite I had for a bit.
I've been dying to dig into my Care Package goodies but have been waiting until I'm better so I can fully appreciate it all...but I gave in and decided to try some of the Mrs. May's Black Sesame Crunch. I'm glad I did because this little treat is so good! It is super crunchy (one would hope from the name) and not very sweet at all. You get a ton of sesame flavor and it is super nutty. This is a great snack...which is why I popped 2 more pieces after I ate this one pictured ;) I'm definitely going to have to try some of the other flavors! The coconut almond crunch and pumpkin crunch sound very tempting.
I drank a ton of water throughout the day. I know it is silly to post a pic of my water bottle but I actually really like this one. It is my Bikram yoga water bottle...it is BPA free and holds 36 oz of water. I drink at least 2 full bottles a day but try for 3. I have another one in purple...I bought them when I did Bikram yoga last winter for a few months because the bigger the bottle the better (and even these bottles weren't big enough...1 and a half hours at 108 degrees, yikes!) and have been using them ever since.
Dinner wasn't as colorful as breakfast but was still delicious. I tapped into my prepared food stash that I got from Whole Foods and put together this lazy but tasty meal. This is a roasted root vegetable medley and some golden sesame tofu.
Although I've had a smaller appetite over the past few days, I'm now craving comfort food like crazy. Not just any comfort food, pasta. This is funny because I don't really eat pasta ever...maybe two or three times a year. For some reason I am totally craving it now and I remembered Vic's recent post about Baked Shells and now that is on my list for next week. I'm now on the hunt for gluten free shells...wish me luck!
