These healthy, low calorie comfort foods are brought to you by Sun Basket
Finally the rain has stopped, the sun has come up, and of course, The Hubs and I are stuck battling the dreaded spring cold. I’m feeling pretty fortunate because it hasn’t fully hit me yet. The Hubs brought it home nearly a month ago, and has been sniffling and coughing ever since.
Why is it that the older we get, the longer it takes us to recover? I swear we’re leading a healthier lifestyle than ever, yet colds just make themselves at home around here.
I’ve had that terrible feeling of “I think I might be getting sick” ever since I got back from San Diego a few weeks ago where I was exposed to some snotty kids. (I can’t NOT hug them! They’re so darn cute, runny noses and all). You know what I’m talking about; that feeling where you constantly clear your throat, dull headache, fatigue.
I’ve been dosing myself with vitamins, apple cider vinegar and elderberry, and washing my hands like a fiend, and so far, I’ve been able to prevent myself from really getting hit with this sickness.
Despite never getting fully hit hard with the cold, I’m not feeling my normal energy levels. Luckily, Sun Basket has stepped in to act as our mom while we wait out the sickness.
Moms ensure you take it easy when you’re sick. They feed you nourishing and comforting food, and do things for you that they normally wouldn’t so you can rest and recuperate…….in this case grocery shopping and meal prep.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; I never thought I’d be so into meal delivery services, but Sun Basket has come to the rescue time and time again. They feed me when I’m too busy to meal plan, they feed me when I’m about to leave town and my fridge is empty, and now they’re feeding me when I’m sick.
This month’s meals were so hearty and simple to prepare, I couldn’t help but feel rejuvenated. Spicy green chile pozole with quinoa, BBQ meatloaf with roasted potatoes and green beans, and shepherd’s pie with black lentils and edamame. Talk about majorly nourishing comfort food without all the junk and excess calories.
Thanks as always Sun Basket! I’m feeling better already!
