I had my first illness of the season...some sort of stomach-only bug that gave me a low-grade fever all day yesterday and kept me running back and forth to the john. Sorry to be graphic.
Being a mom, I'm familiar with the BRAT diet (bananas, rice, applesauce, and toast) that I've always given my son when he has a stomach virus and it's often the only things he can keep down or keep from shooting out when he's sick. Anything protein just keeps tearing his stomach up.
So yesterday, I was really afraid to eat meat. I had eggs for breakfast and I instantly felt sick. I was starving by dinner time and broke down and had a bowl of organic rolled oats cooked in water and coconut milk. Usually oatmeal like that (as opposed to sweetened microwave varieties) do a good job of soothing my stomach and binding me up. Of course, it didn't, and I was stuck taking OTC meds so I could get some rest last night.
This morning I had some whey protein and a piece of fruit. For lunch I had eggs and some coconut flour bread.
Anyway, it's hard to stay primal when you're sick. All I want is bland, easy-to-eat and -digest food.
What do you guys think? I feel bad about the oatmeal...first grain I've eaten in months but it did fill me up all night.
