Soup & Bagels


Soup & Bagels

Good news, I’m starting to feel like a normal person today. Not quite there but the word better is actually in my vocabulary and I managed to go on a short walk this morning. I literally haven’t been out of the house since Saturday night except to go to the doctor on Tuesday. It’s been bad. But it’s lookin’ up! Finally, a light at the end of the tunnel. I seriously didn’t think I would ever see it coming. At least I’ve had this little face trying to make me feel better every day!

Sorry for all the complaining. I’m really a terrible sick person. Not that anyone likes being sick, but I hate being lazy and sitting around and lately all I’ve been able to do is sit, lay and sleep. Today I’ve added walk to my list which is a step in the right direction…get it? I’m so funny. I make myself laugh. Anywho…seriously, nobody wants to read about how sick a girl feels. I get it. Today I wanted to share with y’all my incredibly odd eating habits over the past 4 going on 5 days {yes it’s continuing even though I’m getting better}.

Soup and bagels can pretty much sum up my diet. Seriously. I’ve wanted nothing more. I guess you could also add cupcakes to that list. I’ve definitely finished off the 3 Sprinkles cupcakes that the hubby got me. Yummy in my tummy. But for real…I’ve had Panera Bread’s low fat chicken noodle soup with a whole grain baguette 3 times this week. I’ve also had Einstein Bros Turkey Bagel Thin sandwich twice. I’ve had a cinnamon raisin bagel, cranberry bagel and everything bagel. Never the entire bagel at once. I’ve pretty much eaten half for breakfast and the other half for dinner. No clue why. I haven’t had much of an appetite, but at least I’m eating. Oh and edamame. I’ve eaten that with my bagel at dinner twice. Bagel and edamams…interesting combo if I do say so myself.

Since I’ve obviously been on a soup kick lately, here are some different soup recipes that I want to try ASAP. Well as soon as I feel up to cooking for myself that is!

Lasagna Soup – two of my favorite things in one! I think the hubs may even like this one!
Vegetable Barley Soup – I love veggie!
Healthy Baked Potato Soup – I didn’t know healthy and potato could be used in the same title, but I’m sold 🙂

I’ve also decided that I want to give homemade bagels a go. Why not right? The hubs is going to be traveling a bit, so a girl needs something to do right? I’m sure there’s plenty I could find to occupy my time, but this is going to be added to my list. I’ll let y’all know how it goes! I’m going to give it a stab from tips and tricks found here.

Don’t those bagels look tasty? I’m excited to attempt to make them myself. This will probably require some trial and error.

A little bit of a random post, I know, but it just seemed fitting considering these two foods summed up my week. I hope y’all are having a good Thursday because tomorrow is FRIDAY!!! Hopefully one more good night’s sleep will have me feeling better before the weekend! I know there are several others out there that have been feeling under the weather…it’s that time of year…I hope you all get better as soon as possible!!!

Until next time…
With love and God bless,

Sharing is caring!
