Day 16 - Sick... food prep for the week

Sunday, February 24, 2013

This is unfortunate. I want to lose 3.7 lb this week, and I was planning to run Sun/Tue/Thurs, but I just cannot do it today. I woke up this morning with a sore throat, fever, congestion, sneezing.. the whole thing. I hope the fever breaks by tomorrow.. if it does, I can still fit in 3 runs this week (mon/wed/fri). If not, I will have to cut it down to 2.

Today I made quinoa/oat meatloaf balls with sauteed cabbage and sauce over spaghetti squash. MMMM. That really hit the spot. Despite not feeling well, I pushed myself to do prep work for the week's meals...

*Thawed some stock for white chicken chili:
*Made some gluten-free breakfast quinoa bars:

*Cooked brown & wild rice for this dish:

*Made curried tuna salad for lunches:

*Hardboiled a dozen eggs.
*Sliced veggies and made a spicy red pepper hummus:

*Saved some of the quinoa and squash for easy side dishes to serve with lean protein & steamed veggies.

Now I think I will lay down and sleep off this cold. Wish me luck... I really want to run tomorrow!

    I can't get over how good curry is in tuna and salmon! Some days I use tarragon and dill.... a great way to spruce up a boring sandwich.

    Feel better soon!

    I am just getting over it.
    I didn't feel horrible but sick with a tough cold. Sneezing, running nose, watery eyes. the works
    it took about 10 days for it to pass.
