You know that scene from the movie “Bridesmaids” where… yeah. That scene. Yep. The one that made you cry hysterically. I am pretty sure it might be the first scene that comes to most minds when I just mention the movie. Let me be just a bit more specific, just in case we are thinking of different scenes. Because let’s be real, the entire movie was pretty funny.
The scene I am beating around the bush about is the one when the girls try to do some dress shopping. YES! THAT SCENE! The grossest, funniest, you-might-cringe-but-you-will-totally-LOL scene from the entire movie. If you are still a bit out of the loop, I have a clip below. And for those of you who have not seen this before… let me say… you have been warned.
I have been home with food poisoning for the past 3 days. Luckily my week has not been nearly as… shall we say “explosive” as the bridesmaids above! In my entire life, I have never felt so horrible. And I absolutely hate that I am wrapping up my first full month of healthy Paleo eating like this. Before I got sick I had lost 5 pounds and felt AWESOME. I have lost 1.5 more in the past few days. Poison was not my first choice in ways to lose weight. And the kicker of it is – I chose a “healthy” dinner at the restaurant! I got ahi tuna bites and a side salad! Darn you ahi!
Okay okay… I am getting to my point. Last week I promised you two paleo posts. Due to my illness I spent the last three days of the week trying to find something paleo and food poisoning friendly. I found nothing. At least nothing that either A. settled well with me, B. was something that seemed appetizing, or C. was something I had in my house. There were a few recommendations online for things like pumpkin, banana, and apple sauce – but I honestly didn’t try toooo hard to find the “perfect paleo and food poison recovery meal.” I am sure many paleo fans will cringe right now but in the end I went back to my childhood go-to sick food: Buttered egg noodles and parmesan cheese. (My mom even drove to my house to make it for me!) Oh! And hot tea! It totally hit the spot. (Speaking of which – don’t forget about the tea giveaway!!)
I am so sorry I dropped the ball and only posted one paleo recipe last week. Once I recover from this plague I have a couple great paleo ideas to bring to you all! I am thinking about a creating a delicious mushroom and pepper with red wine soup! Or some fun, creative paleo burgers. Oh man, I can’t wait to eat good eats again!
Do you have any tips for recovering from food poisoning? Help a sister out! And enjoy the sunshine for me this weekend! It is so lovely outside it makes me sad to spend my time lying around watching lifetime movies!
