Plentiful Plants

Daily eats of a Torontonian student

Rough day yesterday… March 3, 2009

Sorry, no post yesterday.  First, I couldn’t seem to get any sleep Sunday night, then my stomach decided to rebel against me some time after breakfast Monday morning and I felt horrible all day long.  Luckily, I had plenty to do at work to take my mind off things, so the day didn’t pass as excruciatingly slowly as it could have.

The offending breakfast?  Pizza crust Flatbread spread with peanut hazelnut butter and raspberry jam.

Sometime in the afternoon I had some fruit to try to settle my stomach, honeydew and strawberries.  But that plan didn’t work out too well.

So by the time I got home, all I wanted to do was go to bed, which I did after a long hot shower and some tylenol and pepto bismol (no picture of those…)

Then this morning, at ~4:30am, the fire alarm in my apartment building went off.  By this time I felt much better, and had had a some what alright night’s sleep due to going to bed so early.   Since I was starving from eating practically nothing yesterday, I made a fruity bowl of oat bran.  The oat bran was nuked in the microwave with water, half an apple, nutmeg, cinnamon, dried cranberries, and a spoonful of mascarpone brown sugar ice cream.  I thoroughly enjoyed the bowl topped with some pecan pieces and paired with the other half of the gala apple and a spoonful of (amazing) Maranatha Organic Creamy Peanut Butter.  And some Amazing Race at a very early hour.

Eventually I headed off to work with a pizza sandwich (the last two pieces of Sunday’s pizza, sandwiched with some goat cheese).

As well as a container of celery sticks, red bell pepper strips, and hummus.

When I came home I was starving and pulled the rest of the lemon baked basa fish out of the fridge.

Then I also steamed some swiss chard and reheated some roasted purple yam.  The chard got a drizzle of the best peanut lime sauce ever.  Simply PB2, lime juice, massaman curry paste, and water.

And I may have gone back for the rest of the yam pieces…

Now I look forward to relaxing the rest of the evening and getting a really good night’s sleep.
