So it appears that I have caught a bit of a cold. It is strange, it started out as allergies, then a little congestion, then today it is pretty evident I have a cold. I am going to continue on with the shots and the diet as planned and see how it goes over the next couple of days.
I am basically treating this like any other cold - minus the Nyquil (which is loaded with sugar). Tonight my beloved made me some homemade chicken and celery soup. The broth did wonders for my congestion and now I'm coughing a bit but I know that just means it is clearing up.
Most people will agree on most comfort foods - mashed potatoes, meatloaf, green beans, etc. What I am realizing is that comfort does not have to mean fattening. Comfort should mean nutrition-filled. The chicken soup I had tonight was probably the best I've ever had and it wasn't full of sodium or preservatives.
Now that's comfort food I can get used to!
