What I Ate Wednesday Party #104

Hello strangers!  I haven’t seen your lovely faces in far too long.  I think we’re overdue for some quality time together; I miss you like crazy!  Thank you so so much for all the well-wishes on my last post as well as the bevvy of emails, tweets, and texts asking if I’m still in fact alive!  I am!  I’ve managed to graduate from full on zombie to only partial zombie today, which is pretty epic if you ask me.  Also epic? Watching your pets try to one-up you.  The ever-adorable Bullet the Ferret decided to partake in my plague this week and has been napping by my side non-stop these past few days.  Poor little guy.  Maddie [aka the jerk posing as a fluffy kitty] got jealous and decided she wanted in on the fun too. I wont gross you out with her antics, but I will mention I have a lot of  laundry to fold right now.  It’s only a matter of time before my other half decides to toss his cookies on my lap.  My life is nothing if not glamorous =)
So today I decided to be a gem an actually participate in my own party.  I have a party hat on and everything.  Or possibly just my birthday suit… but you’ll never know!  Muahaha!  I’m only kidding… I promise not to terrify you like that again.  
So if you’ve been insanely curious as to what I’ve managed to eat while plaguing it up, here’s a highlight from one of my ultra-swanky sick days.  Don’t laugh.
My slightly boring breakfast consisted of a bakery croissant, banana, black coffee, and boatload of water.  Lunch was ramen and a la croix lime, followed by another bowl of ramen about an hour later when I realized I was still freaking famished.  I use the noodles from the little pouch-o-ramen and then add my own seasoning blend.  This time it consisted of veggie broth, garlic, parsley, cayenne pepper, and a little bit of hot sauce. Dinner was another croissant topped with my veggie tuna salad, lettuce, tomato, and a few tuna lettuce wraps on the side.  Sick days are clearly carb days around here.
All hail the croissant.
The commissary on base has the fluffliest, flakiest, non-greasiest croissants I’ve ever tasted.  I’m in love. 
Enough of my shenanigans — let’s see what you’ve been eating!

Hope you feel better! The sick bug bit my house too (luckily my mommy genes have protected me thus far). 🙂 So glad to have found your blog… Love this link up idea. I’m trying to get back on track with my eating and the times I’ve taken pics and even blogged what I’ve eaten has been a huge source of accountability.


Welcome back to the blog world! 😀 So glad you’re feeling a bit better. Keep eating that soup!

Ali @ WHOLEistically Fit

Yay for partial zombie status – that’s progress! 😉 I love that you make your own spice mix for your ramen. I’m going to have to try that since I’m a huge fan of the stuff. Sending you lots of love and well wishes. Xoxo


“Plagueing it up” hahahaha, you poor thing! At least it looks like you’re eating the perfect sick food. Get well soon!

Aw, sorry about the continued plague at your place! That croissant looks delish, BTW. Hope you feel better soon!!

I participated in my first WIAW today – and I think it’s awesome 🙂 I was a little experimental today; I tried out a soup recipe from a blog I’ve recently followed, and I attempted celery and peanut butter for the first time (it was a resounding success).

I’m glad to hear you are on the mend, and I hope you are fully recovered soon. I missed your recipes and ramblings. And you might be the only person who can make Ramen noodles looks so appetizing.


I’m sorry to hear you’re not feeling good. Get better soon! I have to say, I love the idea of adding your own seasonings to packaged noodles. Easy but different at the same time. This sort of thing is why I nominated you for an award! Here’s the link:
