Another Wednesday — so that equals another What I Ate Wednesday (WIAW) hosted by the wonderful peas and crayons = ).
Since my day-to-day eats, especially at work, are fairly boring, I like to switch up it up here. Previous WIAW have followed my Long runs, and even the days POST long run.
Today I am doing WIAW — sick edition. Being sick last week was a whole new lesson in listening to my body and giving it what it needs when it’s down. And considering it’s FLU season, I figured no time like the present, right? 😉
I ate lots of fresh fruit while I was sick, specifically for breakfast. It was something that wouldn’t bug my stomach, and also give me a burst of energy from the natural sugars. Mixed with yogurt, this was definitely something that made my body and mind happy.
For snacks — I lived off of Wheat Thins, toast and hot tea. Simple, soothing, and easy to digest for my body.
For 48 hours, I lived off soup and toast for dinner. With a ton of chicken and fresh veggies. The mix of protein, carbs, and salt did my body well. There really is NOTHING more soothing than a warm bowl of soup when you’re down. The only thing I maybe would have added was noodles 🙂
When I started to feel better, I had a little ice cream at the end of the day to sooth my throat and warm my heart 🙂 I also enjoyed some spicy dark chocolate and tea other days — because even sick Ashley normally craves sweets :).
And that my friends is WIA when I was sick :). Thank goodness for feeling so much better, and of course Thanks again to the lovely peas and crayons for hosting!
