Yep…the last couple days have been spent in bed…
I had a headache, a blown up nostril, and aches all over my body. It must be a sinus infection or something because my left nostril was swollen-it looked funny!!
But, I am feeling MUCH better now, thank you! STill have a headache and I’m super tired, but at least I can breathe.
Anyway, here has been my daily “sick” schedule:
- Sleep til 8, eat breakfast at 9
- Rest in bed, check emails
- Eat lunch at 12
- Do homework throughout afternoon
- Eat dinner at 6
- Watch T.V.
- Go to bed at 9:30
Yep, pretty boring. But, all this free time has given me an opportunity to be extra productive! I have gotten lots of homework done, and created new recipes (simple as the recipes may be, they are still good!)
For breakfast each morning, I started the day off with a mango or some strawberries, and this creamy-mess below. I was inspired by my Healthy Banana Puddin, and the way I blended the grains is sure to make Chocolate-Covered Katie proud (it’s covered in chocolate, Katie!). The texture and taste reminded me of a childhood favorite, Coco Wheats!
Wheat-less Coco Wheats
~This hot cereal is vegan, gluten-free (if made with gluten-free oats), dairy-free, nut-free, and of course, sugar-free!
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1 cup water
- 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
- dash of vanilla (optional)
Combine all the ingredients in a saucepan and boil on high. Turn down to low, and simmer until the oats are cooked. Pour the ingredients into a blender (I used my magic bullet), and blend until smooth.
Needless to say, this was something I looked forward to in the morning!
Then for lunch, I would always whip myself up some miso soup, served in a mug.
Super Simple Miso Soup
~This soup is vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, and of course, sugar-free!
- 1 cup water
- 2 teaspoons miso paste
- 1 chopped green onion
Heat water and green onion in a saucepan until it’s just about to boil. Add miso and stir until it dissolves. Do NOT boil miso!
Super easy soup, and very good for you. My miso paste’s label said that, “Miso cuts the chances of ovarian cancer by 50%!” The soup warmed my tummy.
Thought-provoking, mind-prodding question of the day:
What do you eat when you’re sick?
