What I Ate Wednesday when you have a cold

Well I have a cold.

I got it last week from possibly my daughter or possibly the dairy farm (I felt bad after we had that field trip).

I have been taking some medicine to ease the symptoms and trying to drink plenty of hot tea.

I think it is working, as slowly I have started to feel better.

Now on to yesterday's eats (I know I am so predictable by always showing Tuesday's food).

Last week there were a few comments that my breakfast of celery and peanut butter were this week I cranked it up and had

A spot of oatmeal with cinnamon and brown sugar, a navel orange, and a cup of hot apple cider...YUM!

Mid morning it was snack time and I tried out a new bar by ProBar (a vegan treat)

The HALO bar in s'mores.  Now I don't know if my cold is messing with my taste but this didn't really taste much like a s'mores.  The consistency was chewy and it was good, but I was really hoping for more marshmallow.

Lunch was VERY tasty

I had a slice of spinach and artichoke quiche and a couple of swigs of Naked blue machine (a very nice berry burst does a happy dance in your mouth when you are drinking this).

The afternoon I didn't have any snacks, as I was pretty full from the quiche, but I did have countless cups of green tea:

For dinner I had vegetable lasagna...but ashamedly I forgot to take a picture. 

I assure you though that it was delicious.

So what did you have that was yummy this week?

Would you like to take a peek at what other people are eating?  Head over to Peas and Crayons and take a look.


  1. The spinach and artichoke looks good =)
    Hope you feel better soon!!
    Good day for Emergen-C :-D

  2. Feel better! and happy WIAW!!!! <3

    ps: the flatbread sandwich is from dunkin donuts... they make a pretty legit breakfast for road trips =)

  3. Mmmm, I love Naked. Especially the Green Machine. Hope you're feeling better!

  4. Thanks for the Halo review... I've heard mixed reviews... good to have a honest opinion. :)

    The crud definitely going around! I hope you feel better soon. *hugs*

  5. Everyone is getting sick in this season! Hope you feel better soon :) Mmmm, love the quiche! Looks great!

  6. I haven't had quiche in ages. Yours looks really good! I hope you feel better soon. I recommend tea and sleep and either cheesy comedy movies or fluffy chick-lit.

  7. I hope you feel better! I have to say - your celery, peanut butter and pear were my FAVORITE! I told my honey bunny about it and we're thinking of having the same thing!

    Take care of yourself and I hope your cold disappears soon!

  8. Well after the food for the cold, you're bound to feel better. I love the look of your hot apple cider concoction. It's enough to want me have a cold to find an excuse ;-)
    Your question: last night I made a chicken curry but added a tray of roasted pumpkin with garlic. Fabulous - now the kids are hooked on curries. That's another good number for a cold!

  9. So sorry to hear that you've got a cold! Hope you can feel the warm wishes that I'm sending you for a speedy recovery :)
    Your eats look amazing today! I love the look of the quiche in particular! It's looks scrummy :) Make sure you take care of yourself and don't overdo things this week xx

  10. Aww, hope you feel better!
    When Im sick, drinking a lot of tea and water helps me. :)

    No Jill! Don't get a cold just for the cider...just enjoy it as you are healthy and probably with a macaron :)

  12. aw, man! i hate having a cold. I'm actually just getting over one, as well. LOVE your blog. I try to be as frugal as I can these days. Seems like there is always something that wants money thrown at it.
