Day 7 involved the flu that came on the latter part of day 6. I first thought it was the cold front making me achy-but then the sore throat started and even my eyes began to hurt. Oh yeah houston, we have a flu.
I took the shots but something always slips by them it seems. In spite of all my caterwalling it was most likely Flu Light-I was really achy and cranky and then I slept for most of Sunday. Today I feel like I have HAD the flu vs I HAVE the flu-so that's a good sign too.
The Tofu/Eggplant I got from Dot Wo's was my snack project for the weekend-that stuff is better cold than it is hot-and it gets better each day that passes.
My stomach still feels "odd" which I think is from the lack of dairy. I really do eat more dairy than a person ought to-and I will try to be more mindful of using substitutes. Tofu cream cheese really is just as tasty as cream cheese.
I wonder if some of my vitamin absorption problems don't stem from having a colon covered with -OH_KJ_STOP RIGHT NOW PLEASE.........Never mind. I am not going to finish that thought-just restate that I eat too much dairy and need to work on that.
Oliver the parrot does NOT like tofu-it looks like cheese cheese cheese but is not-and he isn't fooled and he has spoken. NO tofu for OTP. He does like hummus chips and pappadums (lentil chips)-but does not like soy chips-he's just not a soy fan I guess.
He's started his January molt so I'm giving him more nuts and of course his favorite remains CASHEWS...you wanna CASHEW? HUH? YES? CASHEW CASHEW CASHEW. He pretty much approves of the 7 day vegan thing-except, of course, for the soy.
