WIAW Sick Edition

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!

  1. I’m usually super bad at listening to my body when I’m sick and usually don’t eat anything at all..or just junk. I need to start eating more fresh fruit!

  2. Oh, your sick WIAW sounds so similar to mine! Saltine crackers, soup and hot tea with honey are all that’s on my mind when I’m under the weather 😦 And, of course, ice cream always makes everything feel better, even scratchy throats! In other news, I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award. I’ve really enjoyed reading your latest posts and I hope you’ll accept this award! Here’s the link nominating you: http://hodgepodgepilotswife.wordpress.com/2013/10/16/the-versatile-blogger-award/

  3. Sorry to hear you were sick Ashley, hope you are feeling much better and the ice cream has helped kick the ill out!
    I definitely go through phases when I’m sick, fruit is hit and miss but I always try to get those nutrients in!
