Cooling in the cold

Aside from a few much-needed calming cups of stomach ease yogi tea, my latest eats have been cooling which has actually been a good thing for my wild stomach!

Last night Nick picked me up some pomegranate swirl frozen yogurt on his way home, because I was craving something smooth and creamy! I didn't even have to beg (too much) and he picked out the awesome flavor! Best boyfriend ever, right?

So we each had a couple of small scoops (this was about 1/2-3/4 a cup I would say)


Before bed, my stomach was hurting like crazy and I decided to try something- I had a very small snack just before bed; a small piece of a plain italian pretzel (one of my big anise seed ones), just something simple so my stomach had something to do and wasn't trying to digest itself (sorry for the graphics, but that's what it feels like!)
Worked pretty well; I slept better than I have in the last few days!!

This morning I woke up still hurting, so I had another yogurt bowl because it seemed to soothe me yesterday for a bit. Mine had 1 0% chobani, a big banana, 1/4 cup slivered almonds and a dollop of Bonne Maman preserves. Sweet, tangy and filling!
Of course I also had a hot cup of Stomach Ease Tea along side.

When I looked outside this morning the street was covered in a thick layer of snow... since URI is 20 minutes away and I am a big baby in the harsh elements, I'm giving my body a break from heavy exercise and doing some yoga instead this morning, and then hitching a ride to school in my Dad's big truck! I have no idea what I would do if I lived in a snowy place without my parents nearby. They're such a big help!!

I'm off to pack a lunch and do some calming asanas!
