Today I stayed home sick. Uck. I still had to get up early and take Rowdy Roddy Piper to his radio interviews (NICEST guy, by the way), but after that I stopped at the grocery store, then headed home to rest.
Usually when I'm sick I eat lots of very salty soup (such as Ramen), and drink like 5 Vitamin Waters a day - as well as Sprite (which is what my mom gave me when I was a kid). Since those things are full of artificial sweeteners & sugars, I avoided them like the plague this time and went for the more natural drink choices!
Tangerine Juice (all-natural, fresh squeezed, no additives)
Vegetable & Shrimp Curry Soup (w/ 100% buckwheat noodles) - shrimp, Thai yellow curry simmer sauce, 1/2 organic pineapple, shitake mushrooms, onions, fresh spinach, leftover baked potato, low-sodium veggie broth, a couple of squirts of agave nectar. (I had 2 servings of this, since it was pretty much the bulk of what I ate all day - I spent most of the time sleeping! But boy, talk about hearty & healthy comfort food. YUM.)
GT's Kombucha (Guava Goddess)
Kevita (Raw Coconut Probiotic Drink)
Herbal teas (throughout the day)
Orange pepper slices w/ about 1 tbsp of spinach artichoke hummus
None - sick day
