On a whim, I upped my sodium intake today to see if that cure my woeful belly an lethargy and dehydration symptoms. It worked! Despite feeling a bit mucky in the morning, once my bacon and salty eggs kicked I was back to my old self, ready for a big day. And what a wonderful day - my new baby, next year's Senior Play, is building momentum as audition notices are passed around and kids start putting their hands up for all kinds of responsibilities. There has never been a Senior Play at my school before, this one's purely from my mind grapes, and I was worried that the cold start might be tough. Not so!
The food that helped fuel my wonderful day -
Breakfast: lots of grilled bacon (it's just easier), and two eggs scrambled in coconut oil, sprinkled in salt
Lunch: the leftovers of the rotisserie chicken I couldn't stomach yesterday - man, that bird really was coated is something icky sticky! I went through at least 6 paper towels in the staffroom in an attempt to appear more mature and hygienic than the average toddler... Yes, of course I was eating it with my hands!
Early dinner: squid! The beau is away, which means I get to indulge in the foods of which he does not partake. Mmmm... Fried in butter and garlic, delicious!
And I rounded off the dinner hours by sampling my new egg protein - just powder and water since dairy is off-limits. The vanilla "ice cream" flavour isn't anywhere near as nice as the Whey Factors flavour, despite being the same combination of 'vanilla flavouring' and stevia.
Wow. A Meat Week day without lamb or steak?? Woah! Better fix that tomorrow! :)
