Okay so dinner tonight was super light. In addition to my lack of an appetite, I desperately need to go grocery shopping and the healthiest items in my fridge and pantry right now are spinach and artichoke hearts. So what do I do? I Google: "best recipe spinach artichoke" and up pops a salad recipe by Rachel Ray. I'm not a fan of hers but the recipe got rave reviews so I made it and was not disappointed.
I had an orange with my salad (stomach was starting to hurt at that point but I ate it anyway) and for dessert, two Medjool dates stuffed with almond butter. AMAZINGLY, the dates and almond butter kind of made my tummy feel better (healthy comfort food!!) and, while not 100%, I do feel slightly better as I sit here typing this! I plan on having the dates and almond butter as part of my breakfast tomorrow--maybe they're the key to my recovery!
Ooh! And as an aside, I made a batch of orange creamsicle cookie sandwiches today to bring into work! They turned out beautifully, I think. My friend, Courtney, who teaches at the yoga studio where I work, requested I do something orange creamsicle-flavored and this is what I came up with! She teaches a class tomorrow morning and I am excited for her to try the cookies :) Three already sold tonight!
Gotta love Instagram...
