Eggplant makes me ralph

So I woke up this morning and was absolutely sick to my stomach.  Ralphing was involved.   

While laying on couch trying to fall back asleep, it dawned on me that my body was rejecting the eggplant I ate yesterday!!!  Even typing the word makes me queasy.  🙁  

For you purple veggie lovers out there, definitely give yesterday’s recipe a try.  For all you sane people out there, such as myself, try the recipe again using lasagna noodles.  

I don’t know about you, but when I’m feeling sick I crave processed carbohydrates.  Pizza, mac and cheese, PB&J… mmmmmm……  

So when I finally felt stable enough to try and eat something, I decided to make some healthified bisquick waffles.  I mixed up the following:  

  • 1/3 cup bisquick
  • 1/2 cup almond breeze unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 egg white

I poured the batter onto my little waffle maker ($8 at Target, boo ya).  The waffles seemed to take longer to crisp up than normal unhealthified waffles.  I topped them off with 1/8 cup sugar free smucker’s syrup and some strawberries I had sliced up yesterday.

It was d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s.  And it seems to be agreeing with my belly, so I’m heading into work shortly.  Not sure what to do about lunch.  Seriously contemplating a stop at Wendy’s…..  Hopefully my brain wins this war over my belly!

  2. I notice that too about healthier waffles. Even if it’s a multigrain toaster waffle, I have to toast it twice as long. I hope you feel better, at least you had an excuse to eat tasty carbs!
