Question of the day (possibly question of the century).... can excessive sugar intake lead to a very sick and grumpy Casey? Perhaps.
I woke up with a sore throat and a stuff nose.
Which, I figured, was the equivalent to a hangover -- but for a sugar overdose (Thanks, Ghirardelli!)
I actually felt the need to do some form of physical activity, but I knew I had to keep it light... so I didn't end up passed out on the side of a road (with my nose running all over the place - gross).
So, I met up with some friends for some Vinyasa Flow at our local Yoga to the People! I've posted about this before.
Sadly, I haven't been back to the studio since that last post -- so un-namaste of me.
The class was exactly what I needed, except for the fact that downward dogs may cause snot to drip into your eyeballs... sorry for the visual.
I came back HUNGRY and in need of some serious soup.
Whenever you're sick, I feel like you immediately revert back to your two-year-old self... which explains my cravings for my dad's chineese noodle soup. Unfortunately, I was...
1. too lazy to make it
2. too dumb to figure out a probably-super-easy recipe
3. I had to get to work in under 30 minutes.
So, I made my own soup -- water, chicken bouillon, shiritaki noodles, peas, butternut squash, tomatoes, mushrooms, and spinach. Seasoned with a little bit of salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, and sesame oil.
Ohhh, look at all the pretty colors :)
And, guys, I am NOT one of those people who lose their appetite when they're sick. No sir, I would have to say my body works in the opposite fashion -- hence, the big big big portions!!
After my first 4 hour shift at work (imagine how bright and bubbly I was.... don't worry, no innocent people were harmed... just dumb ones), I came back and wanted an even comfier food for dinner.
Yes, I tend to like things "comfy"... my elastic waist-banded pants, my food... don't judge.
Oatmeal. Sweet potatoes. In a bowl.
I may or may not have doubled the oatmeal portion....
and one other weird fact:
I may or may not have blown my nose... and had a huge piece of spinach come out (like a full leaf). Which makes me wonder: do I ever chew my food? AND, is it weird that I though this phenomenon was extremely cool and I proceeded to text everyone on my contact list about it?????
I HAVE A REALLY YUMMY RECIPE THAT WILL SOLVE YOUR I-BOUGHT-6-POUNDS-OF-NUTS-FROM-COSTCO-JUST-BECAUSE PROBLEM!!!
off to spin class :) later guys - have a great sunday
