Sicky and making sure you know this is possible…

Flatout Chips

Flatout Chips

Hi everybody!  I am pretty confident I got food poisoning from Costa Vida yesterday…needless to say, I’ve been feeling less than stellar today (so this will be quick).

I schooled, worked, worked out, studied, and now just veggin out.  I knew I hadn’t had enough cals today, so I got out the peanut butter and “vanilla ice cream” whey.  I took a spoon to them.  Oh my belly is too full now, but I am glad I got some nutrition into my sicky body!

To explain the post title and photo…those are cinnamon/vanilla extract/kosher salt/splenda shaken on cut up flatout…MICROWAVED for about 3 minutes.  Seriously.  They crisp in the nuker.  Just make sure that you check them once or twice and move them around because the micro doesn’t cook things evenly.  They are SO yum to snack on or dip in yogie, cottage cheese, PB, etc.  Not to mention, the spice possibilities are ENDLESS!  I’ve also made them with cumin and red pepper, garlic and parsley…YUM!

Hope ya’ll are well.  Will check on your bloggies manana.








Pancreatitis and ma’ Gallbladder…

It’s a painful saga, really.  No, not really.  I would never ever wish pancreatitis on anyone though.

Basically, I got pancreatitis (July 4th), they couldn’t figure out why…I didn’t have gallstones, I don’t drink heavily, I am not overweight, etc. etc.  They did an ultrasound.  Nothing.  A hydascan….nuclear medicine, YIKES!  Normal-ish, they said.  So I left the hospital four days later, still getting weird bloaty stomach (pancreas) aches.  The doctor finally decided that he just wanted to take my gallbladder out (August 15th) because my mom and brother and many cousins have had to have the procedure.  When they took it out, there were still no stones to speak of, but the bile was thick, like honey, when it is supposed to be the consistency of water.

I was trying to help Jenn over at EatingBender maybe try to figure out what’s goin on with her…so here’s a little TMI for ya’ll!

Happy Tuesday, mine was busy busy.

I gotta go study now, will catch up on your blogs when I’m done or more likely tomorrow while I’m in lectures.

I have a test tomorrow, two tests Thursday (my daddy’s bday too), a study group Thurs for a test on Mon, and a BIGHUGEOL’ Pilates Cert test in Los Angeles on Friday.  I am flying in at 10 to take the test, then flying home at 9 when it’s over.  Nobody wants to be in LA longer than they hafta be!  Right???
