I’m not feeling well today :( I really hope I don’t have the flu – I got a flu shot but that’s what it feels like! Nevertheless, my appetite is gone. And my apathy is hopefully temporary!

Karen came over today and we had lunch – peanut butter sandwiches on Whole Grain Goodness with grapefruit and side salads. This bread has millet, almonds, walnuts, wheatberries, flax – the works!

Hoping for a nutrient-dense dinner!

If you have a Whole Foods near you, go there NOW and get a bottle of ACF Buried Treasure Accute Cold and Flu. I have used this successfully 3 different times to ward off a cold/flu that I felt coming. It came highly recommended by the workers at Whole Foods when I went in desperate for something to help what I knew was coming. It doesn’t taste great but trust me, it’s worth it to head off the cold or flu! Here is what it looks like- http://www.amazon.com/BURIED-TREASURE-ACF-16-OZ/dp/B0018NAZG2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1326234589&sr=8-1

So sorry you’re not feeling well, a nasty stomach flu is ripping through my office and family, so afraid I’m honna catch it. Hope you feel better soon and lunch looks wonderful!

Hope you feel better soon! I woke up yesterday feeling sick too and it’s still with me… why is it that healthy food does not taste as good when you are sick? Seems like it should taste better because it’s those nutrients that will help the germs go away!

ugh me too… feel better soon! elderberry, probiotics, and tea for me as soon as I get home tonight!

Oh no! I hope you feel better! I wanted to add that I had a wonderful lunch today based upon your inspiration! I always think your tofu sandwiches from the bakery look delicious (but sadly I’m in NoVA) so I decided to try to recreate them. All I can say is, yum, the pesto makes for such a delicious sandwich with the herby tofu, may and veggies! That said, I’m sure it’s not as good as it would be in Charlottesville!

Glad it was inspiring! Our tofu is great, and I’m sure your sandwich was too!

Ugh, losing your appetite when you’re sick is the worst! I hope you feel better soon, Kath! I always get a slight flu after getting my flu shot, too! :-?

Feel better!! I’m glad you ate something though!

I caught a stomach bug last weekend at the worst time ever – we had gone to Texas for my granddaughter’s baptism. It was just a 24 hour thing and I was better for the baptism day but my appetite still hasn’t come back. Hope yours goes away quickly. I had not been sick for 15 years and I hate that feeling.

23 Mom January 10, 2012 at 8:49 pm

Oh no! At least you were better by baptism day. I bet she was darling…

I was reading through your c’ville section and it’s making me miss home! I was born and raised in charlottesville and moved to lexington, ky 4 years ago (to the chagrin of my parents). I’ll have to frequent your blog for a reminder of home! :)

That bread looks amazing! Do you buy it or make it?

Reply

27 KathEats January 10, 2012 at 6:57 pm

Neither – I took it from our bakery, Great Harvest Bread Co, that my husband and I run :)

28 Tiffany January 10, 2012 at 6:47 pm

That bread looks so delicious!! Unfortunately I don’t live anywhere near a GH :( I know some locations do in fact ship but I rather purchase it from your location and have it shipped (if shipping costs are fair of course :) )

By any chance can you recommend any brands of bread in the grocery store that are maybe close to the nutritional content of GH bread (ones that have millet, flax…the good for you stuff lol)

Thanks Kath! feel better soon!

I used to like Arnold Flax and Fiber before we discovered Great Harvest. I like the Ezekiel breads OK too nutritionally, but they don’t compare in taste at all! I’d see if you have any bakeries in your area who do a made-from-scratch version :)

I second the Arnold bread – I love almost all of their whole grain varieties!

I hope you feel better, Kath. The flu shot as you know is absolutely no guarantee for not getting other strains and types of flu, but I hope you don’t have the flu or any virus. Ugh.

Tons of garlic at the first signs of things b/c it’s anti-viral is good if you can hang with garlic :)

Simple pb is always the way to go when you’re not feeling good. Tastes amazing and isn’t harsh on the body!

Hope you feel better Kath. Eat lots of fruits and veggie smoothies, or a good ol’ pot of veggie soup with your GH bread.

Feel better and enjoy those pb sandwiches! To me, a peanut butter sandwich is the ultimate comfort food :)

I hope you feel better soon! I’ve been fighting something for a week now. I told my husband the other day that sometimes I feel that since I take care of myself, I never really get full blow sick and just feel crummy for longer. I don’t know that it actually works that way, but I’m really tired of feeling like crude…

Feel better Kath!

A batch of homemade chicken soup is our go-to supper when one of us is feeling unwell. So comforting and easy to slurp up when one’s appetite is low…full of goodness too! Hope you feel better!

Well if there’s any way to get over feeling crummy is to eat a yummy peanut butter sandwich on delicious-sounding bread. I sure hope that does the trick! If not, do what my Grandma has always suggested and have a shot of Schnapps followed by a hot bath. May not cure you but at least it will ease the pain for a short bit :)

If you are feeling icky, I HIGHLY recommend Yogi and Traditional Medicinals’ teas. They both make delicious herbal teas that help fight colds (echinacea, etc) and also soothe symptoms (throat coat, breathe deep) and in my experience they really work. In the winter I drink Yogi’s Echinacea Immune Support every single day and I hardly ever get colds. The flavors are a bit strong but I think they’re delicious :) Anyway, I hope you feel better soon!

I know someone who just had a flu shot today, and does not feel well either. I believe that I really got sick from the flu shot when I had it a few years ago.

I hope you feel better tomorrow!

Hi Kath, I am on a journey to lose a lifetime of obesity and to have my family eating healthy, what would you say would be typical staples in your kitchen or a sample grocery list. Just happened upon your website by accident feel like it is a sign to take charge of my eating habits.

51 KathEats January 11, 2012 at 9:48 am

Hey Wendy,
Here’s a list I came up with a few months ago that makes up the building blocks of my grocery cart:

2-3 seasonal fruits
1 bunch bananas (with green tips!)
1 kind of greens (like kale, collards, etc.)
2-3 green vegetables for dinner sides
1 container salad mix or 1 bunch leafy lettuce
Carrots and green pepper for salads (if we’re out)
1 kind of starchy veggie (like sweet potato or squash or corn in the summer)
Mental check on bulk food stock (refill anything we completely used up)
1 meat (we already have salmon on hand this week)
Eggs/milk/yogurt (if we are out of one or all)
Mental check on pantry staples like tomato sauce or sardines (will venture into an aisle if I need it)
1 cheese for salads, 2 if planning to use some in a meal
