Bet ya thought I was flaking out on ya, didn’t ya? Or that I had snuck off to consume some sugar under cover of dark where you couldn’t see me? (Note – I would never ever do that. Nope. Not ever.)
Reality is, I spent the weekend in Chicago for my son’s dad’s aunt’s retirement party. (Did you follow all that?) And, I brought back something extra special – food poisoning. Oh yah. Kind of makes not eating sugar pretty easy. Anyway, here’s what I ate up until I the time I got sick.
Breakfast – 1 shredded carrot, an equal amount of shredded jicama, walnuts, cinnamon, ginger, vanilla extract and almond milk
Lunch – an apple, peanuts, raisins, flax seed, peanut butter and almond milk.
Snack – handful of cashews
Dinner (and I’m fairly sure the source of my sick) – A sample of deep dish raw pizza with marinated spinach, red peppers, olives, and a cashew & psyillum crust & 1/2 of a raw enchilada with marinated veggies, some nut cheese of some sort, a wrapper of some sort, some greens and sprouts and a side salad of kale, cabbage and apple bits. I was so excited about going to a raw food restaurant in Chicago. And, they were super cool – offering me a taste of the deep dish pizza when I asked questions about how much of an olive flavor there was. (I’m not a fan of olives.) And, they gave me some free clove tea while I waited for the take out food. (The rest of the family was eating take out pizza.) So, I’m oh so sad that I feel like it was the source of my sickness. And, since I’m not sure, I’m not going to mention the name of the restaurant.
Sunday eats (all on the road)
Breakfast: A banana and an apple
Snack: Couple of handfuls of trailmix made with raw almonds, raw walnuts, raisins and dried apples
And, then I got sick so I haven’t eaten anything since then. Hoping to be able to eat something today.
What do you eat after being sick? I usually start with a banana. Back in my gluten days, it was crackers or oatmeal. But, neither of those appeal anymore.
