Tummy Troubles and Rain, Go Away

Posted Sep 28 2010 11:38am

My stomach still isn’t feeling too great today.  I skipped my morning coffee (I get VERY sad when I have to do this :( )  and shortened my yoga to half an hour, rather than my usual 1 full hour of it.

It was weird though because even though I wasn’t feeling well, I was still hungry and craved food.  I’m not one to skip a meal just because I feel sick, ESPECIALLY breakfast. ;) Even though my tummy  is the one that’s ailing, I still find emotional comfort in eating.  I guess I’m a food blogger for a good reason! :)

Today’s breakfast really did a GREAT job of doing this.  I might actually put it in my top 10 favorite breakfasts.  And there wasn’t even any pumpkin in it! :shock:   It was just a simple PB & B French Toast.

I dredged Arnold Sandwich Thins in egg whites to make a regular french toast, then topped with peanut butter, frozen banana slices, and cinnamon.

In between the toasted bread slices,  I slathered on 1/4 cup Fage greek yogurt mixed with 1 tbsp ground flaxseed.

Yum!  I used to think I didn’t have time to make a french toast in the morning on weekdays so I would just go for oats or a yogurt bowl.  I was wrong though.  This took less than 10 minutes to make!  Both the PB and the banana slices tasted amazing slowly melting on the hot bread.

The first thing I did when I arrived at work was brew myself a Yogi ginger tea – my favorite when I have an upset stomach.  A bit pricier than other tea brands but it really works!

Plus, who doesn’t need an inspirational phrase now and then?

Yogi always speaks the truth.

I packed a leftover of  Sweet Potato Soup for lunch which I was excited about until… I realized we are out of plastic spoons in our office. :shock:

Sigh.. I was staring at this useless fork for a few minutes before digging in.

Luckily, the soup was pretty thick so I was able to scoop up a good amount with the fork.  I also had toasted sandwich thins sprinkled with cinnamon, which I was able to use like a spoon.. sorta.

I made it to the bottom of the bowl somehow with the fork and bread soaking method.  Where there’s a will, there’s a way! NOTHING comes in between me and my food. ;)

Tummy troubles and rain, go away..
