Ugh! I am finally getting better after feeling under the weather all last week! It seemed like I had a different ailment everyday, so I have no idea what it was... just some really weird cold, I guess.
I used to get sick a lot more often. But after reading a book about digestion and immune health, I started taking probiotic supplements daily. At the time, there wasn't a lot of buzz about probiotics. I mean there were commercials for Activia yogurt, but you have to eat 40 of those a day with all of that sugar to maintain a healthy amount of good bacteria in your digestive tract.
Now the only time I get sick is when I run out of probiotics. You would think after the first time I would just always restock, but it is a good reminder that taking them is really beneficial. So I was in GNC today, stocking up on probiotics and now they have about 50 different kinds of pills, chews, and powders. I guess they are pretty popular now. I hope it doesn't fade away like a super food fad (i.e. acai berries).
So now that I'm feeling better, it's back to meal planning this week (last week was a lot of soups and take out). With my husband working a new job with earlier hours, eating dinner at 8pm isn't quite working out as well. I think my solution is going to be preparing a couple freezer meals on Sunday so he can just put it in the oven when he gets home... and by the time I get home an hour later, we can eat dinner at normal people time. ;) I might start that next week...
teriyaki salmon with steamed green beans
butternut mac and cheese with brussel sprouts
What are you planning to make this week?
