Happy Friday!

I’m home sick today. I must have caught something at school or the bank but it’s really hit me hard! I’m sneezing every 5 minutes it seems. Honestly, I think I made myself susceptible to getting sick because of stress. This week has reason been harder than others…this crazy winter weather, the end of the trimester at school nearing, and dragging myself to work every day has apparently taken it’s toll on me. Oh well, it happens. Let this be a lesson learned: RELAX!

And I am doing plenty of that today. Plenty of rest, relaxation, and food nourishment!

First off, start with a chocolate on chocolate breakfast…because it is high in antioxidants to get me feeling better!


Any excuse for chocolate, right?

This was oatbran made using my overnight technique with 50 grams oatbran, 1 1/2 cups water, chia seeds, pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger, and 1 tbsp Hershey’s unsweetened special dark chocolate cocoa powder. I topped it off with a protein frosting made with Nutribiotic’s brown rice protein powder and a scoop of Walden Farm’s chocolate spread, plus a bit of almond milk.

Then for lunch, have an assortment that’s chock full of vitamins:


salad with greens, celery, tomato, sun dried tomato, black beans, shredded carrot and garlic, hummus, balsamic, and black pepper. (This was pre-shake. I always use a tupperware bowl for my salads so I can put a lid on them and shake everything together.)

Plus some vitamin C and healthy fats to ensure that all those nutrients get absorbed well:


orangie, thin bun with almond butter and (more) dark chocolate…because remember…chocolate will magically heal your body from all sickness. Just trust me. I’m feeling better already, actually.

After lunch is eaten, go snuggle with your furry friend…


And all will be right in the world.

On the agenda:

  • Jersey Shore
  • nap
  • Glee
  • nap
  • Real Housewives
  • nap?

Maybe being sick isn’t so bad after all…
