Tonight I deserved some of my favorite food!
I try not to complain about my many aches.
My body hurts, all the time but not enough to stop me from moving along and finding my happiness.
For my 40th year (this year) I decided to start taking care of myself…
The physio helped my lower back than I went to a massage therapist for my arm and when my massage therapist said she wanted a chiropractor to have a look, I followed her recommendation.
I have visited the chiropractor 3 times this week. Monday, I came out of there with my left side from my ankles, to my fingers, to my ear and my head hurting. I was exhausted.
On Wednesday, I was tired but managed to get some work done after my 2nd appointment
This morning I woke up with a headache but went back this afternoon for more.
I think it’s working… I am not as tired and although my head and ear still hurts, the rest of my body is feeling different. Not necessarily better but definitely different.
So why my title?
After 3 visits at the chiropractor, tonight, I deserved some of my favorite food.
So tonight, we ate grapes
And a baguette, some of it sliced and some of it diced 🙂
Dipping oils. I don’t believe Emily ever dipped bread in oil or vinegar before but she gave it a try tonight. I love this about Emily. This little girl who wasn’t supposed to be able to learn to chew and swallow food on her own due to her cri du chat syndrome, eats a more diversified diet than most kids her age.
Emily will try anything and loved almost everything.
Tonight, her favorite was olive oil infused with white truffle 🙂 Quite a strong flavor, trust me!
I prepared some cheese (Boursin, Brie, Gruyere, old cheddar and marble cheddar) and veggies than made Emily’s favorite dip.
Many of my favorites 🙂
But a food fest wouldn’t be complete without an Angel food cake. Tonight, I didn’t want to bake it so I bought it already made and got some strawberries and whipped cream.
At this point, I got my secret ingredient out. The home made strawberry jam that my little brother’s mother in law made this summer….
And now to grab spoons and dig in!
What about you? What is your feel better meal?
