WIAW – I Haven’t Had Peanut Butter In Days


That’s right. I haven’t had peanut butter in days, not since before I got sick last week. My eating habits tend to change for a bit after a virus so I am just going with it, eating what I crave and what sounds appealing. The last time I had a real bad stomach virus, I ended up a vegetarian.

Although I am feeling better and returning to my normal eating, peanut butter just hasn’t happened yet. I don’t really know why since my stomach definitely feels close to 100%, I guess I just don’t want peanut butter right now?

What? Is this me talking?

What I Ate Wednesday 2-24-16


Yesterday’s early morning happiness of oatmeal and coffee. I didn’t finish all of the oatmeal but what I did eat was perfect for before my run. I also had a piece of a banana before heading outside.

After my run I made a version of my three-ingredient pancake – just like we discussed last week where it’s the same as the three-ingredient pancake but different 🙂 I still didn’t measure things but it involved eggs, some banana, a little coconut flour, cinnamon and Skoop. Oh and blueberries!

Too bad it didn’t flip well this time.

During my run, I decided I was craving a french toast bagel from Stew Leonard’s. I told myself that if I still had the french toast bagel craving come lunch time, I would go and get myself one.

That feeling when you are truly craving something and it lives up to those expectations…..Ohhhh did this hit the craving spot. I topped my toasted French toast bagel with a drop of Earth’s Balance, jelly and eggs.

I am slowly getting back to vegetables.

melted mozzarella and tomato

So this melted mozzarella cheese and plum tomato combo is on toasted cinnamon raisin Ezekiel bread. I am a bit annoyed if you must know because I bought a new loaf of the cinnamon raisin Ezekiel bread and it doesn’t have the usual amount of raisins –and yes, I checked all of the slices.

I think I need to complain. I really look forward to this raisin bread because it’s always so nice and chewy with lots of raisins, especially in the end pieces. Not this time.


This sounds like crazy talk coming from me but right now I really like an apple without the peanut butter.  I can actually taste the apple. I sprinkle it with cinnamon and break up one of those mini dark chocolate bars from Trader Joe’s to go with it.

    You might be killing me with that french toast bagel! My local store makes the best french toast and blueberry ones. I actually have not eaten steak since the night before my September stomach bug (the puking one that made me miss my race!) I just can’t stop associating it with that and I have no desire. I also didn’t eat oranges for literally decades after a stomach bug association as a kid.

      OMG the stew leonard’s French toast bagels may be the best I have ever had. I understand associating steak with that virus. I did the same thing so many times that it’s a wonder I have what to eat.

    I stop eating peanut butter too when I get sick … For some reason the taste/texture/smell just makes me not want it even a little bit (and I typically eat it everyday too)!

    Dinner last night – Minestrone soup with lots of warm, crusty bread and red wine! And then I picked out all the shrimp from my mom’s pasta dish … 🙂

      I love that you are a food picker outer like me! lol — soup and bread sounds nice right now and I like to hear of someone else who goes off pb when they are sick. It’s so weird for me to do!

    I haven’t had dessert since Sunday. That is so unlike me. Not even chocolate! I don’t know what’s wrong with me… I do need to try those bagels. Maybe I’ll make a road trip out of it haha

    I haven’t had PB in a couple days either! I ran out of brown bananas and usually make microwave banana bread and top it with PB for breakfast, lacking the bananas I’ve started having other things for breakfast that don’t need PB. I also made almond butter yesterday so that has taken PBs job for my sandwiches.
    One food I ate until I didn’t was hummus. I still like it, don’t get me wrong, but I ran out of it and started eating other things at work so I sort of forgot about it. Now I’m wanting some hummus!

    How drastic do your eating habits change after being sick?
    I guess it kind of depends on how sick I am. I often eat MORE food after I’m sick.
    So glad that you’re feeling better!

    What was for dinner last night?
    Cinnamon roll pancakes, eggs, and bacon!

    Is there a food you ate every single day until one day you didn’t?
    Hm… I haven’t had peanut butter in a while either.

    Man, I miss real bagels! It’s been a few years since I was last stateside but I’ve never gotten over how amazing they are compared to what we get in Ireland. I think I might actually have to visit the US JUST for the bagels…. Hope you enjoyed!

    A french toast bagel sounds so good. Always honor those cravings 🙂 I couldn’t go two days, let alone a week, without PB! I think my food habits change a little bit when I’m sick in that I probably eat less overall and gravitate towards the same foods over and over. Feel better!
