The past couple of What I Ate weeks have been pretty uninspiring, thanks to a sick household. This year it was clearly my turn to be struck down and for almost a fortnight too. For my own meals, it meant loads of juices as that’s all I’ve been able to stomach without feeling queasy. Lots of greens, oranges, lemons, banana, ginger and blueberry juice:
Although I had no appetite mixed in with some crazy bouts of feeling like I was starving (but then I’d eat a little and feel sick, gahhh) I tried to get in some protein and veg. This chickpea veg curried stew, which I found in the freezer, did the trick nicely:
Now that I’m feeling well enough to cook again, I made Toby’s Singapore Noodles with some tofu and veg:
I made a batch of Glo Bars from the Oh She Glows cookbook. These were more to give me another snack option for DeeW who has done a complete about face and is now going through an extremely picky-eater phase. She wouldn’t even try these:
I have to make more of a disciplined effort to get back in to meal planning. I was so glad to find quite a few frozen meals I’d prepared for myself a couple months ago. When you’re sick and live in a house with a freezing kitchen, the last thing you might want to do is cook!
