A month of back pain and now a cold
Thursday, May 03, 2012
Have been fighting my back for a month now... the nagging and not-so-nagging pain keeps coming and going. And for the last week, I've been fighting a cold. Which means that I cough a lot at night which doesn't help my back (it doesn't like sudden motions). Good news is that I haven't gained any weight lately, bad news is that I haven't lost any. Hard to exercise when you are fighting to breathe and when leaning over brings on dizzy spells. Good news is that the cold also brought a total lack of interest in food. But, green beans, spinach and fresh aspargus are all showing up now in the farmers market (and my garden along with radishes, lettuce, and other greens), so when I do eat, I'm getting a lot of fresh steamed veggies which are so healthy for me. And the chickens are laying eggs like crazy, the goats and cow are giving milk, so lots of quiche, frittatas and omelets in my future. Now to find a low-calorie pie crust for the quiche. I have tried making it crust-less but it is just not the same (good, but not the same). Any suggestions?
