Oh hello loves.

This week has already seemed like a very long one, but because of very unwelcome reasons.

I believe I had gotten food poisoning over the weekend, and with trying to spare you the very gross details, I have never felt that sick, been in that much pain, and thrown up that much in a very long time. You know those pains where you just cry because it hurts so much and there is nothing you can do about it?

Yup. That was me.

I have no idea what could have caused it, however I have a few suspects in mind, but I will say those were the longest 3 days of my life.

Thankfully I feel like I have overcome it and even though my stomach is not 100%, I definitely have my appetite back, but I am playing it safe and sticking to bland foods.

So with that being said, I bet you are wondering how this What I Ate Wednesday is going to work this week.

Well for once I can actually give you a look at a days worth of eats, but still keep it themed.

What I Ate Recovering From Food Poisoning

After I was done emptying all the toxins from my body it took awhile for me to even begin to think about eating.

I woke up feeling decent, and made the mistake of having a normal breakfast.

Since it was one of my only days off, I almost always feel like I need to make plantain bread because I don’t get the opportunity that often.

Well big mistake. my tummy was not up for all that and I’m sure all the protein frosting didn’t help either.

Let’s just say I was in a lot of pain that morning and paid for my mistake.

When lunch time rolled around, my body knew it was hungry, but I had absolutely no appetite or desire to eat.  I also had no intentions of getting off the couch.

Insert best fiance ever.

He cooked me up some soup served with fancy saltine crackers on the side.

Amy’s Organic Vegetable Barley Soup is one of my favorites, but sadly I could only eat about half of it before my stomach started to fight back.

I did however finish the saltines. Those seemed to help soothe the belly a bit.

I basically avoided food like it was the plague the rest of the day and after eating what I thought would be stomach friendly foods and failing, that night I took a risk.

Back when I was in college when I had horrible hang overs and was nauseous my secret cure was Taco Bell.  I can’t explain it, but it was the only thing I could eat when I was sick. Well, I didn’t really want Taco Bell, but I thought greasy food might actually be worth a shot.

So yes kids, we ordered pizza.

I kept my toppings light though, I did half with feta cheese and half with green peppers.

I played it smart and even though I was starving I ate one piece just to see how my stomach would react.

Things started off good, but about 10 minutes after I ate it, the tummy started talking again.

It may have only been 8pm, but I just went to bed. I was sick of feeling sick and sleep was really the only way to avoid it.

I ended up calling off work the next day which I hate to do, but if I was going to be in any shape as I had been the last two days, I would have been worthless anyways.

That morning I felt a lot better than I had the previous days, but I still decided to play it safe.

Breakfast was simple toast topped with Earth Balance spread and a drizzle of local honey.

It was so simple, and so delicious.

I didn’t take a picture because it just wasn’t that photogenic, but instead of risking eating dairy (and me being the habitual dipper I am) instead of my yogurt I whipped up a chocolate banana soft serve. Which was ah-mazing.

Finally around lunch time on day 3 I started to get my appetite back. Oddly though I was craving simple and for some reason veggies have seemed repulsive to me. Which for me is odd, because I always crave veggies.

So for dinner, I went with a craving and had a simple dinner of roasted kabocha squash.

It was all I wanted. So I went with it.

Brushed with coconut oil, sprinkled with cinnamon and roasted. Then topped with my coconut cookie dough.

Nothing fancy, but it hit the spot and I didn’t get sick. Yay!

And with that I am happy to report I believe I am almost back to normal, and let me tell you how happy I am for that, because not having an appetite is no fun for this food loving girl.
