When you’re sick with the stomach bug the last thing you want to think about is food since you have no appetite what so ever and the thought of food just makes your stomach queeze 😦 To sum it up the stomach bug is no fun.
Yesterday morning I woke up feelin’ much better than I did Wednesday (that’s for sure). I stuck to a wicked bland diet of simple carbs and stayed away from all sorts of dairy products and heavy foods.
As I am currently trying to recover from ED and gain weight getting the stomach bug was the last thing my body needed. Since I am at a low body weight and BMI my body cannot afford to get sick because it will be very hard to fight off the sickness. So I made sure I took every precaution to take care of myself in order to recover from this sickness ASAP.
My boring eats from yesterday included…
This morning I woke up feeling much better! Still not 100% but pretty close. Since it had been nearly 48 hours since I last “tossed my cookies” I thought my stomach would be able to handle dairy products once again and what better way than to start my morning with 2% STRAWBERRY BANANA Chobani yogurt!
This was my FIRST time ever trying 2 % Greek yogurt. This was definitely a challenge for me since I am used to my non-fat Greek yogurt. I legit bought this yogurt nearly two weeks ago and this morning I was finally brave enough to eat it!
The 2% yogurt totally beats non-fat yogurt in the texture department. It was so much creamier and I loved the mix of strawberry and bananas together! I will no longer avoid the 2% yogurt just because my ED tells me they are just so called “wasted fat” that my body does not need…but in reality my body does need fat! I will definitely be purchasing this yogurt again 🙂
I also broke open a new jar of Teddie’s Smooth peanut butter. It was a long time since I last had Teddie’s and was happy to be re-united again.
Today’s weather is supposed to be super HOT and close to the 90’s! Bring it on summertime and Happy Friday everyone!
