It's Bananas, Rice, Applesauce, and Toast.
And these are the ONLY foods that sounded moderately appealing to me for the last day.
And NO, it has nothing to do with morning sickness.
On Tuesday, I got food poisoning for the first time in my life. I have always prided myself on having a strong stomach. But OH MY GOD I nearly died. I went out for food twice on Tuesday, both to places I have been before that serve hundreds of people. I think lunch was the culprit though, because Mr. GG and I shared everything for dinner (and I was already not very hungry - totally not normal for me. I need to eat like every 3 hours...drives Mr. GG crazy.) Anyway I had the "Fall Salad" for lunch at a Thai place known for it's chicken. It had beets, arugula, chicken, and some kind of sauce. I'm thinking it was the chicken.
By the time I got home from dinner with DH, I had a headache. That quickly progressed to feeling like I was gonna die and laying down on the coach. Which within a half an hour progressed to expelling every ounce of liquid and food from my body. I will spare most of the details, but I will say that I used one downstairs bathroom for things coming up and another for things going down. At one point I had to use a trashcan because they both were happening at the same time! Disgusting. I didn't even know that was possible, but I guess it's happened to most people before. I didn't know there was that much liquid anywhere in my body and I doubt I've put back even half of it...gotta keep drinking!
Yesterday was supposed to be cookie baking day with my sister and my mom. I made it over to my mom's 2 hours late, but then slept on the couch while they baked all of the cookies while listening to inanely loud Christmas music. Anyone remember Billy Gillman? I wanted to kill that little kid.
Anyway...my sister mentioned the BRAT diet after I asked for some toast and then I remembered that I had actually been craving a banana. Applesauce, yes please! But no rice. One of the bacterias I looked up was from boiled rice which I had with dinner. No thanks.
So yesterday I ate most of a slice of toast, 3/4 of a banana over about 5 hours and then a little bit of broth and a couple bites of applesauce for dinner.
And I lost 5 pounds! (Humor.)
Today I feel much better, but I'm starting slow...
Posting may be light over the Holidays...depends on how I feel. But I'm saving up some really good posts for after the first. So if you are taking a blogging holiday yourself, don't forget to come back!
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, or insert your own.
