There’s nothing that frustrates me more than being sick. Being sick ruins your day – you aren’t productive, you’re foggy, uncomfortable, and feel like doing nothing but laying on the couch.
That’s me, today.
Yesterday, I woke up with a slight scratch in my throat – nothing major, I felt fine, but I couldn’t kick the scratchiness all day. We went and saw The Girl On The Train around 5pm and once I got out of the theater, it hit me like a ton of bricks: I was sick.
We went back to the apartment, and as much as I wanted to meet my friends who were out nearby, I just couldn’t bare the thought of being anywhere but the couch.
About three chamomile and honey almond milk lattes later, the sickness still wasn’t going away, so I knew this wasn’t just a little bug.
I woke up this morning and felt terrible. I couldn’t get out of bed – sweaty, feverish, achey, sore throat, a cough – every single sympton of the common cold, I have it.
Like a good husband, Lu ran out and picked up the necessities: DayQuil, Advil, throat lozenges, fruit for a smoothie for my throat, and a thermometer.
Forty-five minutes later and here I am, writing today’s blog post because I couldn’t do it this morning or last night. I feel slightly better, but not really. I wanted to have a really productive day, I was going to go apple picking with my sister and then visit my parents and grandparents, but unfortunately, I can’t go, because my grandfather is weak and I don’t want to risk making him sick.
I wanted to get today’s blog post up, because it’s an easy salmon dinner, that I know will make your dinner table soon. The spiralized slaw is made up of spiralized carrots, zucchini, and bell pepper – for color, crunch, and nutrients! The salmon has the perfecta mount of flavor to complement – but not overpower – the robust flavors of the slaw, which is truly the star here.
Now I’m off to lay back down and drink lots of fluids – and hope in a couple of hours I can get out to grocery shop at the very least.
