The Road to Recovery

Thanks for all the well wishes! I'm feeling a little more human today, especially after a shower. Three days of horrible cha-cha-cha really took it out of me. No pun intended. I'm feeling like my intestinal tract is trying to come back into balance but I'm still weak and fairly dehydrated. I'm taking fresh juice, plenty of water and herbal tea along with apples, bananas and foods rich in probiotics like organic Greek yogurt and cultured cottage cheese (which is so tangy and delicious, by the way.)

I just finished making a batch of homemade turkey meatball soup with fresh, local turnip greens. I can't tell you how wonderful soup is for recovery. Think about it...warm, homey, comforting soup full of vegetables and lean turkey meatballs. A perfect source of nutritious vegetables and protein, yum. Soup is the easiest and most delicious way to get lots of vegetables down your neck without even trying. Pick your favorites, chop, cover with stock and simmer. Add some meat and/or beans and your favorite seasoning. Simple!

I'm worn out so I'm going to head to the couch to rest up. I'll see you back for the weigh-in tomorrow.


  1. Glad you are feeling better!

    Thanks for the guest post, btw - it will run over the weekend :D

  2. Sorry to hear you're under the weather, Andra! I'm glad you're on the mend. Good luck tomorrow @ WI!
