Day 17 and Have a Cold!

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I've been motoring along fairly well here, have some good NSVs and had a couple of rough spots, but reading this forum has really been helping. However I just came down with a bad cold, am not hungry and am having trouble swallowing due to the congestion. Does anyone have any tips? I really hate eating veggies when I feel like this! Thanks! 

Just In Case: a normal day for me is

breakfast: veggie, egg, ground turkey frittata with guacamole and coffee, sometimes fruit

lunch: roasted veggies (butternut squash, onions and Brussels sprouts) , chicken (I prep big batches) and guacamole- sometimes I forget the fat here so I'm working in that

Dinner: stir fry veggies, lamb/beef/or pork, a small serving of a starchy veggie like part of a sweet potatoes with ghee. I try to add some leafy greens if my other veggies are light. 

Drinks: 1 cup of coffee, 1 GTS kombucha, water and tea throughout the day

Snacks: I have epic snacks but I never eat them because I'm too full

Thanks for all your help!

What if you make up a batch of a nice blended soup? I love these two recipes from Mel Joulwan and since they're blended, it should be easier to swallow :)

Maybe pair the soup with some softly scrambled eggs or poached chicken so it's something softer? I hope you're feeling better soon!
