I can’t remember the last time I got the flu, but…I have it now. Well, I had it this weekend without really realizing it, and now I think (hope) it’s on its way out. I know you’re supposed to “starve a fever, feed a cold,” but I get hungry. And I like to eat. So I’ve been eating.
But today I was home from work most of the day, and I decided maybe I should actually take care of myself. I decided to experiment with oatmeal again since I didn’t have my beloved GreenMax. Btw, it’s oil free, perfect for a strict fasting day.
In case you haven’t seen it, this is flax milk. 50 calories a serving, 2.5g of fat, and lots of vitamins and minerals. Plus, of course, Omega 3 (and 6 & 9). You can tell a lot of hippies frequent the health food store I bought it from because…the container smelled like patchouli.
Then I added 2 Tbsps of unsweetened coconut. I also added more chocolate chips, but if you don’t want it too sweet, you could always just use cocoa powder and sweeten it as much or as little as you like.
Sometimes it’s a good idea to break the rules (as long as you can keep your food down).
