WIAW #37 – Sick (but still good eats)

Can you believe it’s WEDNESDAY already? I really can’t. Mostly because my week has been a little crazy and out of ordinary – I’m sick. I came down with a cold late last week, and then a sore throat and then .. pinkeye. I know. Gross. I didn’t even know that adults can really get pinkeye – but I assure you (and the nurse assured me) – they can, especially if they already have a cold. TMI?

Anyway, between work, going to the doctor, and catching up on much-needed sleep, I still managed to find time to share my WIAW eats 🙂 This is Monday’s eats – the day I went to see the nurse and found out I really did have pinkeye.

The day started out like any other. B made me breakfast and I enjoyed egg whites with hot peppers, spinach and other veggies. I also had a cup (or 2) of herbal tea and honey. It felt so good on my sore throat!


I also figured I should have some Vitamin C, so I had a clementine.


Around lunchtime I headed to the Minute Clinic to see what was up with my throat and my eye. It took 2 hours to be seen, so I was HANGRY when I got out of there. I scarfed down my lunch. B had made me a salad and a veggie burger, and I topped it with leftover tomatoes/eggplant that I had cooked for dinner a few nights earlier. Plus some hummus. May sound weird but it hit the spot.


I also had a tiny bite of leftover carrot cake from B’s mom’s house. B had taken home a slice for himself and saved me a bite. 🙂carrotcake

Snacks during the afternoon included some cooked delicata squash with cinnamon and sugar.


And some pre-cut fruit (I’m lazy) from the West Side Market.


For dinner, B made some roasted chicken and sautéed broccolini, bok choy and other veggies. If you’re counting, that’s THREE MEALS he made me on Monday. Whoops. I swear I’m a grown adult and can take care of myself.


After dinner I snacked on some snickerdoodles (maybe more than one) and a few bites of pecan brittle I had picked up in New Orleans (cue last week’s WIAW).



And that was it!

Some questions for you:

  • When was the last time you had pinkeye?
  • Does someone make your meals for you?
