I have been struggling more and more with food lately. Yesterday, the only thing I could stomach was ... french fries.
Yes, greasy, terrible, lacking in nutritional content french fries. However, they totally saved the day. I was having a B-A-D day yesterday. I felt all sick and die-y, and it all came to a head when I was driving downtown to meet Jeremy for his lunch break, and I nearly got into a car accident ... on purpose. A man ignored a yield sign and tried to pull out in front of me at the last second in a rotary, and I seriously considered jerking the wheel and teaching him a lesson ... road rage style. Apparently the look on my face was enough, because he whipped it into reverse SO FAST.
I got to the restaurant before Jeremy and Loel, and the waitress actually asked if I was okay. I guess I looked that green. So I ate an entire basket of fries before they even showed up, and I felt GREAT for the rest of the day.
Anyway, I woke up today feeling really terrible, and couldn't think of anything to eat. So I drank a few ounces of a protein drink and headed to Meijer. DEAR GOD. I almost sat down in the middle of the aisle at one point and gave up. I considered calling Jeremy at work to come get me. I cried twice. Once because I went to buy ingredients for a lovely soup I was going to make my friend Heather today, and when I saw one of the ingredients, which is also one of my favorite foods, I had to run away so I wouldn't ruin ANOTHER purse by puking in it. The other time because I saw a bib in the baby aisle that said "I may be small, but I'm the boss." I actually sobbed at that point.
After TWO HOURS at the store and only getting four little bags of food, I got home and made myself a snack I was really hoping would make me less of a basket-case.
Take a look at this:
I feel like I am in a commercial. And it was DELICIOUS. And now I feel stellar.
I was shocked, because the baby has refused every other type of cracker, but for some reason Toasteds are okay. Hmmm.
I really hope this continues to be a good snack and I can pack it for work this week, because I have SO few foods I can eat right now.
