Sick Day Staples

Being sick blows. I’ve had some sort of a cold/cough/sinus thing the past few days and it’s annoying the hell out of me. And it’s kept me out of the kitchen. I hope to get back to cooking soon, but in the meantime, here are a few staples that have been getting me through the worst of it:

Traditional Medicinals Throat Coat Herbal Tea

I’m not a huge fan of herbal tea, but this really does soothe a scratchy throat.

Boca Chik’n Patties

For some reason, when I am sick, I crave junk food. And these Boca Chik’n patties with a side of tater tots fulfill that craving. It’s certainly not a meal I would condone otherwise, but it does the job.

Naked Green Machine

My husband picked this up from the store and it’s been my drink of choice (plus, I’m hoping the vitamins will offset my crappy eating habits). Despite its green color, it’s actually very tasty and feels good on a sore throat.

I hope you all are healthy and well! If you have any go-to staples for when you’re under the weather, I’d love to hear them.

New Product: Gardein’s Ultimate Sliders

I have a confession to make: Back in my meat-eating days, I loved White Castle. And every now and then, when I’ve imbibed a little too much, I crave those little burgers. While I usually satisfy my fast-food urges with a Boca Chik’n Pattie and some tater tots, I was excited to see this new product on the VegNews website. I’m not a huge fan of processed fake-meat products, but in moderation they’re good for those junk food cravings. I’ve not tried any of Gardein’s products, but I’m eager to give this one a shot. I couldn’t find them on Gardein’s website, so I’m guessing they’re still not out in stores just yet. But when I do find them, I’ll give you a review. I guess I’ll have to steal some packets of White Castle’s Düsseldorf brown mustard to go with them.
