WIAW for Wellness

Yay – WIAW Time!  I’m feeling a bit under the weather, so here’s my What I Ate Wednesday for Wellness.  Actually, it would make a little more sense if I had actually stuck to the planned eats for wellness, but I go a little carb-crazy when I’m sick.


Breakfast: Special K Protein Plus with unsweetened almond milk and a vitamin-c packed grapefruit


Snack: an apple a day, right?


Lunch: nutrient packed cauliflower curry bowl


Snack: planned = plain Greek yogurt (with Lactobacillus reuteri that has been found to block the replication of viruses) and sliced strawberries (with lots of vitamin-C); actual = tooooooo many Terra chips!


Dinner: half chicken breast, cauliflower, and sweet potato (loads of beta carotene for healthy skin, your sickness shield)


So that’s it.  Not perfect.  Not bad either.  Here’s to hoping I feel better before this weekend!

  • What do you first reach for when you get sick?

    It seems as if eveyone is coming down the the flu/cold lately. Sending prayers across the ocean to you. Feel better!!

  2. 1000mg doses of Vitamin C 3-4 times a day, nothing beats it! Hope you feel better soon!

  3. boo to feeling yucky! Hopefully you’ll scare it away with all of your healthy eating! I usually reach for soup…lots and lots of veggie soup!

  4. I drink some Emergen-C and do salt water gargles… I’m actually about to do that right now since my throat is feeling funny :(

  5. I turn into a carb monster when I’m sick too! I thought I was the only one. And it’s for simple carbs like bagels, toast, saltine crackers, etc. I bet it’s because our bodies require more energy to do their germ-fighting thing & they don’t want to waste time digesting & assimilating nutrients. Whoa.. nutrition nerd, or what? I’m going to stop now.
    Hope you feel better soon!

  6. Feel better! Still looks like a wonderful day of eats ;D

  7. ahh I have a cold too! But I can’t take anything for it :(

    I reach for orange juice.. and lots of it!

  8. Sorry that you’re not feeling well, Tiff… everyone seems to be coming down with something lately, and I’m just keeping my fingers crossed that I can avoid picking up whatever it is. Hope you feel better soon! And your eats definitely look healthy to me! My carb cravings go through the roof as well when I’m sick, and I usually end up eating crazy amounts of toast and cereal.

  9. There are TONS of people feeling under the weather–myself included. Take care of yourself! :)

  10. Aw, it’s no fun being sick!!! Feel better soon, girl! Drink lots of tea and eat lots of fresh fruit!

  11. Doesn’t really seem like that many carbs? Well for me at least.

    I usually go for oatmeal to help soothe my throat!

    I reach for the OJ – hang in there and get those vitamins:)

    I had a sweet potato last night – so easy and delish.

    I am terrified of getting sick! My best defense is always a good night sleep- or LOTS of good night sleeps. Eating clean, lots of fruits which are easy for the body to digest allowing it to focus on healing elsewhere. Most imprportant is Vitamin D!! You would think I work for this vitamin based on how I promote it to people but it’s amazing. After studying it for an extended period of time I learned so much about it’s interaction with the immune system. In order for your body to launch a full attack on a pathogen, your immune cells need to link up with a molecule of vitamin D- the more there is available, the more defense cells can attack the sickness!
    Sorry for going nerd on you blog here haha. I’m over at SoFitandSoGreen.blogspot.com with more health tips!

  17. You ate really well even if you’re sick! I always reach for the grilled PB&J. :)

    Feel better soon!
