Things I've learned in the past few days.

First off, THANK YOU all for your comments on my last post. I'm proud to say that I am feeling better now then I was that day. It's still a bit of a struggle, but I believe it will only get better from here on out.

So here's a quick re-cap of the things I've learned in the past few days:

- If you are feeling weird - it's ok to REST. I didn't and today I have a fever and pounding headache, not fun!

- When one is sick it's best to listen to ones cravings. I woke up this morning desperately craving yogurt. But after remembering my last yogurt/cereal day I decided on oats. I didn't enjoy them AT ALL. When you have a fever the last thing you want is something hot. Well, all that to say - lesson learned.

What I ate:

What I actually wanted to eat:

(Who wants to take a wild guess what I had for snack?)

- Attempting to make a balsamic/soya sauce glaze without the proper ingredients is NOT a good idea (let's just say I had a bit of a sodium imbalance from tasting that sauce trying desperately to fix it)

- Attempting to make vegetarian white bean chili from a recipe is VERY easy (even though I am incapable of following a recipe through to the tee)

- I am addicted to my cornbread (yah, I am bragging here a little bit) and I can never stop at just one piece
(this picture doesn't nearly do it justice, but I was hungry :P)

- Having too much free time turns me into a girly girl (case in point, since I NEVER paint my nails)

- When one is sick sometimes the blandest of foods make you feel horrible and it's hard to enjoy anything. I'm feeling really nauseous after snack, for no good reason :(

- And apparently I am incapable of lying in bed for longer then 2 hours at a time and I feel the obsessive need to blog about insignificant details of my day.

What's an important (significant or less significant) lesson you learned recently?

How do you eat your cereal? I like it crunchy so I usually just moisten it with a bit of yogurt and eat it right away (I actually added a bit TOO much yogurt to the cup in the picture)


  1. I'm glad you're feeling better today. It's also great you got that yogurt in for your snackie.
    Your nails look really pretty by the way.

    In yogurt, I like my cereal either way. It can be really crunchy or super soggy and I enjoy it. In milk however, I love it soggy; the mushier the better. I'll pour the milk on and then wait for about 5-10 minutes before eating it. When a lot of milk gets absorbed, I think it becomes so much more flavorful. Is that weird?

    I guess it's insignificant in general, but to me, it's pretty significant: I learned that eating a donut will not kill me. I ate it last night, and I'm still alive and typing this today! :-)

  2. Keep feeling better! I'm fighting off a nasty cold too.

    Mmmm everything looks so good. I love cornbread. When it comes to my cereal, I like it crunchy too. I just add a tiny bit of milk to wet it. Weird, I know!

  3. That's true that you should just go for what you're craving cuz you're gonna end up regretting not eating and later doing it anyway!
    And I love my cereal crunchy too, so I put just enough silk or almond milk to cover a third of the cereal, and then mix it all around so it's wet but still crunchy :) Yumm I love cereal! ha
    Keep up the great attitude!

  4. Your food looks so yummy! I keep trying to practise not eating at certain times - like today. I ate my snack an hour and a half after lunch because I was hungry and then ate something else an hour later. I was huuuungry :P

    You just reminded me that I need to paint my nails. Yours look so pretty. You have such perfect nails!

    I prefer soggy cereal so I tend to have mine with lots of soy milk. I don't like it with yoghurt :\

    Feel better :)
