Baby It's Cold Outside

Brrrrrrrr, I am not used to this cold. I would give anything to be back on the beach! It was -35 today (and felt even colder with the wind)!!!

I was not feeling 100% today, as my stomach has been a little off since Tuesday. I woke up in the Dominican with a bit of a stomach bug or something, and today it was really bad. I didn't have a very big appetite today.

Breakfast was some oats (1/2 cup quick oats, 1/2 cup almond breeze, 1/2 cup coffee, with almond butter, coconut and a sprinkle of yogurt covered raisins).



Lunch was a green monster ( 2 cups spinach, 1 banana, 1 cup almond breeze, 1 scoop amazing grass powder, 1 t almond butter, 1 scoop chia seeds).



The hubby made me dinner since I wasn't feeling great. He made a delicious chicken soup, and bought a loaf of sour dough bread to go with it. I had 1 bowl of soup and 1 slice of bread.



Soup is definitely my number one comfort food. If ever I am feeling sick, it always helps to make me feel better. My mom always made homemade soups when I was growing up, and I love to make them now too.

I watched the first episode of the Bachelor tonight!!!! Man do I love that show!!! My favourite so far is Gia. Do you watch? Who is your fave?

I am going to go to bed early tonight and try and sleep off this stomach bug.

What is your favourite comfort food?

I haven't gotten to see the Bachelor yet but I want to. I loved that guy from the Bachelorette!

I hope you feel better!

I think anything with potatoes is a comfort food for me. Mashed potatoes, shepherd's pie, gnocchi, baked potatoes...

Hope you feel better!

I love chili and that's what I made last night for dinner. Usually lasts couple nights and is good with this weather. I love your coffee oats, I need to add some coffee to mine next time.

Brrr that is COLD. The only thing that made me happy about coming back to Kamloops after my visit home was coming back to the mild weather!!

I had the Bachelor on in the background while I did stuff on the computer Monday night. I've never really watched it before so I might actually watch it this season! Haha

My favorite comfort food is my grandmom's homemade green spaghetti. It's awesome!

Aww...feel better soon. You should move to LA, where it's a sunny 70 degrees. Perfect!
Okay, I'm making you feel worse...

Soup is my ultimate comfort food, too! And so is oats!
