I started my day off with a breakfast of champions. A banana and chocolate hazelnut butter sandwich on my gluten-free bread along with a Starbucks via packet which I had never tried until yesterday morning. I have been missing out! They taste just like you would get fresh from Starbucks!
Justin's Chocolate Hazelnut Butter with the banana tasted like it should be a candy bar. It was delicious.
I nominated the whole thing in .03 seconds.
I still have sleepy eyes in that photo because the caffeine didn't kick in yet. ☺
Around 9am the caffeine started kicking in and I tore through my morning work tasks. Boosh! I was feeling victorious when noon came and thought I would treat myself to a big lunch of veggies and steamed brown rice. I stopped by the farmers market and picked up this delicious lunch and headed back to my office.
As I prepared for my afternoon meeting I finished up my lunch and slugged down an iced water. I took about 10 minutes and planned out my grocery list for the night. I was planning on making a German dish my Grandmother used to make but with a healthier twist. I was really excited. I love German food. Around 2pm I headed to my all afternoon meeting. Those are the best...NOT! Things were going well when suddenly 30 minutes into my meeting I started feeling funny. I started to feel light headed and became short of breathe. I tried to remain calm because there was NO way I could leave in the middle of this meeting because it was very important. After feeling like this for about ten minutes I started to worry. I started feeling like I might pass out. I couldn't focus on anything either.
I made it through the meeting and decided to cancel the grocery shopping and just head home. When I got there Philip was already home. I told him what happened and he said it sounded like low blood sugar. What do you guys think? So he grabbed me some OJ and I sipped on that and started to feel a little better. Since I was in no mood to go grocery shopping or cook and the meeting I was in turned out to deliver not great news to my work team I just wanted to go to bed.
Against my whining Philip told me he was going to take me somewhere that would cheer me up. And he sure did. My favorite Vietnamese restaurant for my 'comfort food' Pho. I am not sure that I have ever talked about how much I love Asian food. I am a tremendous fan of Japanese, Vietnamese, Thai and 'Real' Chinese food. I mainly enjoy these types of foods because they don't use gluten in there cooking. So it's very easy for me to find something that I can eat. Philip always jokes with me that I whenever I make dinner it somehow always resembles a stir-fry or an Asian dish. I just stick me tongue out at him ☺
We started off with a combination crepe which I was unfortunately not able to take a picture of because we dug into the thing right away. I ordered my go to dish of Pho which was delicious and did cheer me up ☺
I wasn't able to eat all of my Pho because it comes in a super large bowl. I love that the Pho comes with basil and some mint and bean sprouts! MMMM
After dinner was finished we got smoothies because I just can't leave this place without one of their fresh made smoothies. This time I tried the passion fruit kind....mmmm it was delicious.
On the way back to my apartment I remembered I was supposed to take my car to the dealership to get it looked at. It has been having some issues with the headlights. I thought if we drove out there at that time and dropped it off I could come back and get a late night yoga session in at home. Apparently, my body wasn't down with that idea though because on the way to the dealership I started to feel the same way I had felt in the meeting in the afternoon. This time things heightened though and I had to pull over; luckily we were close to the dealership at this point. I felt really strange though guys and I started getting a little worried that maybe something was wrong.
After a little while I started to feel better and was able to drive the rest of the way to the dealership and drop off the car for servicing. Philip drove us back to my apartment and I decided it was best to call it a night and get some extra shut eye. I decided that if I still felt the same way today I would make a doctors appointment but so far today I feel normal.
Do you guys think this is totally weird?
Any ideas what this might be about?
Have you ever tried Pho?
What is your favorite kind of cuisine?
It's almost Memorial Day! I love it! Summer is almost here 'officially' ☺
What are your plans for the weekend?
