When I was recovering from Influenza last weekend, I had zilch appetite. I was actually getting better last Saturday but after tucking into some rich, heaty and oily Italian food at a Lego launch where bloggers were invited, I got home feeling a hundred times worse. I felt like the cactus in my throat had grown a million times thornier after the event. I felt really sick. I did not feel like talking that evening coz I yakked a lot at the event and I partially lost my voice after the event.
After downing many packets of Izumio and popping over 6 Super Lutein on Saturday, I felt much better on Sunday. The headache, eye ball ache and body ache were gone. But I still did not feel like eating anything. I still did not feel like myself yet. And the sweltering El Nino heat made things worse.
I only felt like eating cold semi-sold food. So I kept whacking my favorite skinny sugar-free yoghurt and Haagen Dazs ice-cream!
Drama Queen made some toasties with Food For Friends cheddar cheese and avocado and I had half a slice.
Lunch was at our favorite friendly neighborhood restaurant. I told the lady boss what I wanted and she whipped up my favorite fish slice vermicelli with spinach with reduced salt and oil. That bowl of noodles was such a comfort!
After lunch, the foodie hubs dragged us to LDG Cafe. While he enjoyed his cuppa latte, we enjoyed some desserts -- Creme Brulee...
and some French chocolate dessert.
After clocking in 9 hours of sleep per night for 5 nights straight, I am finally myself again. Sleep is one of the most important ingredients for our body to recover, without which, it will take a long time to heal. Of course, you need good nutrition and a good supplement for your body to function optimally. I am glad that I have my Izumio and Super Lutein to give me the peace of mind in good and bad times :)
