I wish I had a more exciting WIAW Wednesday post to share. You know, a post that includes peanut butter cheesecake cookie dough blondies (yes these exist), homemade granola, this gnocchi and sausage soup and more of what I’m craving as I type this.
But alas, I had a sick day Monday. I woke up with a fever and achy. No stomach issues (I rarely get stomach sick), but super tired, feverish, a bad headache and sore. So what do I eat when I’m not feeling well? Here’s a sneak peek in today’s WIAW!
For some reason egg whites and veggies didn’t sound like they would hit the spot in the morning, so I opted for a pretty large bowl of Special K that took me about an hour to eat. It was probably close to two servings, so maybe that’s why it took so long? Oh, and yes – I eat it dry. I don’t like milk in my cereal.
I slept through lunch so I had a snack around 3 p.m. I started with some peanut butter and half a sweet potato with some caramels. I ran out of the homemade ones so had a few (more than just the one pictured – I had 3) ones from my cabinet.
Then an hour later I had another half of sweet potato with honey and cinnamon. Still my favorite snack.
B said he’d make me dinner and I napped again throughout the evening until dinner at around 8 p.m. B made some veggie burgers (my favorite – Luna!) and salads which somehow hit the spot. Oh, and yes, I also had some Arctic Zero. About 1/3 a pint #notashamed
So that was it! That’s what I ate on my sick day. Apparently I’m still hungry AND I crave comfort food as you can see – gotta have my ice cream, caramels, peanut butter, honey and sweet potato on my sick days!
Some questions for you:
- What do you eat when you’re not feeling well? Do you tend to not eat much?
- What comfort foods do you crave when you’re ill?
- Favorite flavor of Arctic Zero? I’m almost done and need more!
PS – Thanks to The Big Man’s World for hosting this week’s WIAW!
