Maybe it sounds a little weird, but over the past two weeks I have been heavily self medicating and I have found the best remedy for coming down with a flu/flu-like something, is exercising. Seriously, after every workout I feel energized and reborn instead of like a sick person. Speaking of sick persons, the boy ate chicken yesterday and now lies in bed totally immobilized. Bad chicken!
Other choices of self medication have been:
- Drinking lots of tea and water
- Drinking fruit smoothies
- Taking hot baths
- Eating tons of fruit
- Gorgling with salt water
- Eating tons of dark chocolate
- Buying bikinis online. Hey, something to live for right?!
After having somewhat of a workout burnout, I seem to have my workout mojo back 150% which feels awesome. It has also sparked me to write some exercise related posts. I already have three topics in mind, but is there anything you‘d like to see on the blog?
Now I’d like to dedicate a moment to this awesome lunch I threw together yesterday: 5 minute pizza! Ok, so maybe not literally 5 minutes, but pretty close nevertheless. Remember the breakfast pizza I made over the weekend? Well it hasn’t made a reappearance yet since I can’t get over my pumpkin baked oatmeal breakfast, but I did want to do something with the recipe since it’s such a fun and quick one. I decided to make a savory version for lunch, and the 5 minute pizza was born!
I simply forfeited the protein powder and agave and instead added a lot of garlic powder, dried basil, oregano, parsley and coriander. I also used whole Spelt flour instead of whole wheat pasrty flour, and subbed 1 T applesauce for oil. The result was a hearty flatbread, that I topped with veggies just like you would a pizza (but no tomato sauce, I’m not a fan!).
Topped with: spinach, half a paprika, olives, a small onion, garlic, olive oil, pepper & salt. ‘t was delicious, and really quick to whip up! I’ll type out the recipe today or tomorrow!
Well I was planning on going to spin class this morning but I’ll stay home and take care of the boy and run some errands around here.
I’m curious: how do you self medicate?
