Not much better

Happy humpday!

My stomach wasn't too much better today; I did 40 minutes of Flow Yoga this morning, and then made my lunch for the day. I packed myself a tuna wrap using 1 light wheat wrap, 3 oz tuna, celery, carrot, 1 tbsp nayonaise, a squirt of spicy brown mustard, capers, salt and pepper. This was a huge wrap, even though I didn't even use all of the carrot!

I packed this with a cheese stick which I ate mid-morning, some grapes and the rest of my carrot which I had with my wrap at noon and an apple I ate mid afternoon.

I also ended up eating some Snyder's pretzels- the little square kind, I needed something to settle my stomach when it was aching and these did the trick . I had 15 out of a 24 pretzel serving.

My first class was pretty good, I got some good work done and then my last class got canceled because of the weather, so I called my dad and he gave me a ride home early. A quick trip to the Alternative Food Co op for some birthday supplies for my Mom's cake on Friday (I got a big cup of ginger tea with stevia while I was there) and I came back home to make an earlier dinner for Nick and I.

I made dijon parmesan baked chicken using a dijon/butter spread and 1/8 cup parmesan breadcrumbs on two chicken breast pieces, baked at 375 for about 25 minutes. I also made some whole wheat rosemary couscous using 1 clove of garlic, a sprig of rosemary and some black pepper simmered in chicken broth. I steamed up some green beans for some color and dinner was served!

It was all really good!

I'm sipping some ginger ale right now- my stomach is still not back to normal and while I've come to figure out small amounts of easy-digested food, large amounts of ginger and my acidils provide temporary relief, I'm making an appointment with a specialist ASAP!

Have a nice night!

I use Wrap-Itz brand, usually the Whole Wheat, but this time they didn't have it so I used the Lo-Carb Wheat! They're very yummy!

Hey Kristin,

Have you ever been tested for lactose intolerance or food allergies? They might be causing the distress.
