Well, I guess it was just wishful thinking that I would start to feel better because now I am down for the count. I tried going in to work yesterday but barely made it through the morning before I had to head home for the day. I can’t even remember the last time I was sick…like we’re talking years ago. I guess those green veggies I love count for something?
Although our symptoms are pretty crappy – sore throats, achy muscles, headaches, and fatigue that just knocks us out – I made a comment to Marc yesterday along the lines of “Well, at least we don’t have the stomach flu and we can still eat!” (there’s that optimistic foodie in me!) to which he responded “I’d rather have that because it only lasts 24 hours.”
Since we still CAN eat without it coming back up, we’ve been leaning towards comfort foods like grilled cheese with tomato soup and macaroni and cheese, along with nutrient-packed smoothies to hopefully speed our recovery. Plus bowls of ice cream for good measure and y’know, soothing the sore throat.
Our cravings for grilled cheese comes at a perfect time because didja know April is National Grilled Cheese Month?!
