Happy to feel good today

Monday, January 27, 2014

Yesterday was not a good day. I think I have narrowed it down to having eaten some of my homemade soup that I made for the friend who was sick. I put garlic and onion in it ......after eating it I kept tasting the onion and then was up all night with the "runs" and gas so painful. So I put myself back on two of the meds that the doctor told me I might have to take if had symptoms. I rested yesterday and drank lots of water. I really didn't feel like going out but it was my dear friends birthday and I didn't want to disappoint her. So I pulled myself together and went. The meal actually tasted good to me and the meds worked and I had no pain. I ate almost the whole meal as well and of course am up 2 pounds today. but the med work so well that , well still haven visited the "rest room" if you get my drift....I know too much information. but I had a great night's sleep and feel really good today. I am looking forward to getting back to eating my bland diet which I enjoy and drinking lots of water. So hopefully it was just the onion and garlic in the soup that upset my system. I find it so interesting how food can make us feel. The good news is that I am good and happy with eating my yogurt, blueberries, raspberries, almonds, coconut water, cream of buckwheat and such. Nothing on the agenda today so can eat my normal fare.
I do hope you all had a great week end and you are set to have a great week.
Have a wonderful day.

    So good to hear that you are feeling well again.
Try and keep away from onions and garlic for a while.

    Are they Mexican almonds? This way they are not pasteurized. Do you soak them in salt water?

    Sorry you had a bad food incident :( Garlic is one of my staples due to its healthy heart benefits. I would hate the thought of certain foods making me sick because I love spicy. Glad you can get it under control at least and were able to celebrate your friend's birthday!

    So good to hear you've bounced back after such a painful, unexpectedly bad time from the onion and garlic. I'm so sorry you can't tolerate them, Sallie - they add so much flavor to a wide variety of cuisines. But it's good to know that you've identified the dietary "culprits" responsible for your suffering - well done with that.

    Enjoy your day! Glad you are feeling better. I thought the super bowl was this past weekend, but now see it is not until Feb. 2, so you still have that to look forward to.
