Happy Wednesday, friends!
It’s time for another day of eats. Thanks for the link-up!
We had a great weekend away in St. Simon’s Island, Georgia. Terry had a workshop to attend, but we also got to enjoy the beautiful weather and spend time with our friends we hardly get to see.
Leaving the island felt like punishment. Particularly since we both left with a nasty sinus infection. Anyone else have killer teeth/jaw pain when you have one? It’s the worst part! And I am the person who claims to never get sick. Welp. Never say never. Turns out too little sleep and not enough of fruits/veggies leaves my immune system a little weaker. I am aiming for some more rest this week. Thank goodness spring break is right around the corner!
When I rolled out of bed yesterday morning, I was so glad my breakfast was already made.
I spooned some peanut butter on a square of baked oatmeal and threw it in the toaster. Toasting them together makes the peanut butter super runny! Plus coffee x 2.5, plus a square of 85% dark chocolate.
Later in the morning while working on school work, I snacked on two of these peanut butter oatmeal raisin energy balls (that’s a mouthful).
And then I fell into a three-hour long nap that no part of me could resist. I actually woke up feeling a lot better!
I made lunch for Terry and I by heating up leftovers of southwest pasta (recipe). I mixed mine with plain yogurt and hot sauce. Served with a side of sliced strawberries.
Later in the afternoon after more working and soaking up the sun, I had neufchatel spread on whole grain toast and small bowl of frozen blueberries
Terry and I took a nice long walk and the fresh air rejuvenated me. Though I am not feeling the best, I don’t want to miss out on this warm weather. For dinner I fixed oven baked chicken legs with a warm side of farro sauteed with kale, onions, and herbs .
Except I only ate a bite of the chicken…. because it was not cooked all the way. (Barf). I seriously despise cooking chicken for this very reason. I think I will stick with using my crockpot to cook my chicken- it’s never dry but always done completely. Yeah, no more raw chicken for us.
After dinner I went into Charlotte and met with a RD as a part of a mentorship program. I love learning and chatting with RDs, because it makes me excited for life after school and helps me to have a better idea of the field I want to work in. I sipped on an almond milk latte as we talked.
When I came home I felt like I had maybe an hour left in me. I made a small bowl of plain yogurt sprinkled with honey nut cheerios.
And that was it! Definitely not my most exciting day of eats, but hopefully enough to help to start feeling better. I don’t feel like my most exciting self either, so I apologize for the relatively boring post. I hope to be back up to speed in no time!
So you tell me-
How do you cook chicken?
Do you have a natural cold remedy you rely on?
