A Relaxing Sunday & One of My Favorite Soups
This weekend flew by just as fast as last weekend if you ask me. We had a very low-key weekend and I loved every second of it.
I was feeling incredibly energetic Sunday morning and just in an overall good mood. That was most likely due to the excitement of our upcoming vacation and a good night’s sleep. I was feeling good.
For some reason my appetite has been a little “off” lately. I’m thinking this may be because of the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. I was hungry for breakfast but couldn’t decide on anything that sounded good so I put myself together a combo that I know is easy on my tummy and usually pretty appealing : peanut butter and banana of course.
We went about our standard Sunday errands, came back home and put groceries away, and by 11:00 I was hungry again. I was hungry but again, nothing sounded good to me and my highly energetic self from the morning was starting to take a nose dive.
I pulled out a bowl of homemade turkey veggie soup from the freezer.
It was simple and comforting to my belly. I also had a microwaved apple…
Later in the afternoon I had a banana, a bite of peanut butter, and some pistachios.
I have been in a bit of a workout rut this past week. I just haven’t had the highest amount of energy. I was full of energy yesterday morning but once the afternoon hit I was definitely losing it.
I wanted to at least move a little bit, so I headed down to the treadmill for a half hour walk. I did do a few other strength exercises, but I really wasn’t feeling up to it, so I stopped.
Maybe I just needed it to be a low-key day.
Later in the afternoon I headed over to mom and dad’s for dinner. I got my cuddle time in with the little one which always does a great job of boosting my mood.
Dinner was one of my all-time favs: French Onion Soup.
I went with the SCD version without the bagel chips and cheese and it was STILL outrageously delicious. I had two bowls and asked if I could take one home for leftovers this week! I swear I could try and make this duplicate recipe at home and it wouldn’t taste the same. Mom has to make it. 😉
After dinner we got cozy on the couch and sipped on hot water with ginger and honey while we watched the Oscars, and then later called it a night. I really like the hot water with ginger and honey, like REALLY liked it. Could this be due to the fact that my dad made it for me? It really is true that food tastes better when someone else makes it for you.
It was a very relaxing Sunday and I feel like more Sundays should be like this one.
Now we are onto Monday and I have a list of things to do as tall as the Eiffel tower, SO I better get a move on!
Happy Monday to all!
Question of the day: Do you think food tastes better when someone else makes it for you?!
