To kill a coughing fit Tuesday night, I took some codeine cough syrup. When I woke up the next day I was extremely tired and nauseaus, which I assumed was from the codeine. I figured if I ate it might help.
Breakfast: Kashi Go Lean with skim milk and strawberries. I thought I had purchased "Go Lean Protein," as a reader had recommended, but I guess it's just called "Go Lean." It's got more sugar than I was looking for, 6 grams per serving, and it is noticeably sweet, but it tastes good.
The nausea continued. I started to worry I was getting the horrible flu that my husband had and that everyone else around here seems to have. The nausea masked my hunger, though I did seem to want to eat and felt better after eating.
Snacks: banana and cashews.
Lunch: poor man's pasta e fagioli. I made it from a recipe in Easy Beans , but soon realized I had only about half the ingredients on hand so I had to wing it. It's more like whole-wheat pasta with tomato sauce and chickpeas.
Then some berries.
Later I was really hungry, though I did still feel nauseated. I knew I was low on vegetables for the day, I'd even brought some to work , but I just couldn't stomach them.
Snack? Dinner?: peanut butter and preserves on whole wheat, skim milk, two chocolates.
I was going to have a big salad for dinner. I worked till the end of the day, but I felt so sick I just put myself to bed without supper. Fortunately, it doesn't seem to be the flu. (Not pregnant either: Don't even go there!)
