day 11 and home sick!

My incredibly sore throat doesn't keep me from blogging!  I can't talk, but I can type.  Being sick gives me a view into 'quick' vegan food.  luckily I've frozen the soups and stews I've concocted and I have enough fruit to blend into soy yogurt which goes down a sore throat smooth and cool.

I wonder tho if I'm not getting the right nutrition.  Can I be making myself sick?  I doubt it.  I'm sure my diabetes is the culprit in my compromised immune system.  and as my blood sugars drop, I'm sure I'll be healthier than usual.

But to ensure my health, I will meet with a nutritionist to go over my meal log and tweak it as needed.

Back to bed after walking Gizzi.  Even though I'm sick, she still needs to potty.

Good night gentle readers.


  1. That is a great plan to meet with your nutritionist and see if you're on the right path. After all, you could eat nothing but cupcakes and still be a vegan, but you sure wouldn't be eating healthy :-)

    Definitely want to hear the followup from the nutritionist.

  2. Sorry to hear you are sick! You can blame it on the diet but I tell you - the bugs have been rampant and vicious this year. Crappity crap crap!!

    So - my favorite work lunch of late is (I think) vegan. I take 2-3 cups of frozen veggies (high quality and variety is good) and pack that in a quart tub. At work I dump on a Trader Joe's Indian food entree (ie Punjab choley, lentils, etc) and heat. Voila - tasty feast!

    Hope you are well soon!
