That’s right, vegetables are an afterthought these days.
Overall I have been feeling much better after that virus (which I decided was not a virus but some sort of food poisoning instead) but my stomach remains a bit sensitive which is so hard for someone like me who lives mostly on plant-based foods.
Fruits and vegetables, which I normally thrive on, are not exactly good for me right now and have been reduced to the bare minimum except during my most stubborn moments which yes, I have found to regret within minutes after consuming.
Let’s take a look at what I ate on Monday…
Small early morning bowl of oatmeal, banana and peanut butter before my workout.
Once I heat it up, it mashes together the way I like it 🙂
After my workout…
The usual cold oatmeal mixed with Skoop B-Strong, some berries (I need some fruit, okay?) and peanut butter. Definitely my favorite meal of the day, every day.
I am a really lucky girl because I work with one of my closest friends which means we get to brainstorm and collaborate together fairly often.
Monday morning we worked together from her house for a few hours where she provided me with endless water and coffee.
No, coffee is not good for a sensitive stomach but I need at least a cup (okay more than a cup) to be polite and go about my day.
A few years back, I lived on a toasted bialy topped with tomato and melted mozzarella cheese as my lunch every single day.
My recent pizza bagel craving sparked the return of the melted mozzarella/plum tomato craving only this time, I used Food For Life’s Ezekiel Sprouted Grain Buns in place of the bialy (a bialy is a type of bagel just in case you didn’t know).
WHO AM I eating cheese lately? I don’t know either. I don’t really like cheese except I guess when I craved pizza and pizza-like things.
I cut up a fresh pineapple for my son and made the mistake of eating a few pieces. Huge mistake actually. I do not recommend you eat any pineapple if your stomach is feeling sensitive. Trust me on this. Even if you think you want it, spare yourself.
Dinner has been really simple and plain although I can’t complain about a plate of homemade baked French fries.
Life gets tricky here. Apples are not working for me right now, especially at night, so simple handfuls of chocolate chips have been my snack of choice.
I should have included the semi-sweet chocolate chips from Trader Joe’s in my Trader Joe’s Favorites For Runners post yesterday because these chocolate chips are seriously the best.
When a chocolate craving hits, a few handfuls of straight up chocolate chips can really do the trick which is great because who feels like baking and getting all dessert creative all of the time?
