bouncing back


A
fter a little bout of food poisoning that my son and I picked up from a fast food place that rhymes with hack ronald on Saturday, I am still trying to get my strength back. We dont typically eat that kind of stuff but we were going to the driving range and we were hungry and it was close by - you see the recipe for destruction right there dont you. Part of my rejuvenation process includes lots of yoghurt and eating primarily vegetarian foods. It works trust me.



Manchego, alfalfa sprouts, and avocado on fresh potato bread.



This sandwich is even better on a super nutty whole grain bread but the potato loaf is what I had.



We also snacked on papadam with tamarind and corriander chutney, tasty and light but loaded with flavor. So if you were wondering what all the vegetarianism is all about thats the reason.

Food poisoning sucks! I once had a incident with salmonella, and what saved me from the most acute trouble was tea made from anise and cumin and fresh youghurt.

snugs said...

it probably wasnt food poisoning, it probably was just such a shock to your system eating that fast food crap when y'all are used to your gourmet goodies.

Pooja said...

Oh my cant imagine being down with food poisoning after my experience with it few years ago! Drains out all ur energy! Hope you recover soon. And having vegan food is the best option. Light, filling n comforting!

Get well soon, doggybloggy and doggybloggy's son.

For what it's worth... I only seem to get sick after eating at fast food places! When I cook it, we seem to be better off....

Yup - something cleansing about all those sprouts!

doggybloggy said...

anette: yoghurt does the trick for me..

snugs: maybe you are right - that would be too funny

pooja: it is draining

kenny: thanks kenny-t

buff: lazy and late make a bad combination when hunger kicks in

TW: they are so darn good - I had forgotten about my good friend the alfalfa sprout...

Aww sorry about the food poisoning! No fun! Your recovery meals look great though! Especially that sandwich and papadam (which I'd never heard of)!

Beth said...

Food poisoning??!!! from that wonderful place? NO WAY!!!!

that sucks...esp. for a foodie like you.

Jenn said...

Oh No! I hope you two feel better soon. Sucks having food poisoning. I had it once. Not fun at all. But at least you're having some fantastic veggie food while recovering.

The Duo Dishes said...

Dang, that's no good. No good at all. Rest up and eat those cleansing foods!

girlichef said...

Yick...no fun :( Hope you're back to "normal" soon. And can I just say that that chutney sounds crazy good! And manchego...aw yeah.

Get well soon. I have been food poisoned once and I wasn't able to go to work.It drained all my energy.

Reeni♥ said...

You and little doggy will be 100% soon eating this wholesome and nourishing food!! Sorry this happened to you!!

Barrie said...

That is horrible. I'm glad you're both bouncing back.

Cate O'Malley said...

Food poisoning is the worst. It could only be made better by that fresh avocado and the chutney that followed it - yum!

C.G. the Foodie said...

I second snugs. If you haven't eaten that type of "food" in a while, it will make you sick. I experienced the same food poisoning type symptoms when I had food from a restaurant that has the same rhyme in Vegas after having no fast food in forever. My high school students who at it all the time were fine.

Yum on your remedies though!

Donna-FFW said...

Sandwich looks real good. Feel better.

The Food Addicts said...

My husband and I got a really bad case of food poisoning in Morocco a few years ago. I wasn't able to touch anything except fresh raw vegetables for about a few weeks after that. Pumpkin Soup was about as
cooked as I could stomach.

Jamie said...

Oooh too bad about the food poisoning! But if anything helps, I can't imagine anything better than that yummy fabulous-looking sandwich. Hope all is better now!

starrlife said...

Doesn't seem like you need another reason to eat those delicious meals! Hope you are completely back on track soon DB!

Hope you guys feel better soon! Yogurt is the best for upset stomachs, definitely.

lisaiscooking said...

Glad you're feeling better! That sandwich looks fantastic. I love a veggie sandwich with sprouts and avocado.

The Diva on a Diet said...

Ugh, I hope you're both feeling better. Food poisoning is the worst. :(

Meanwhile, I think I need more info on that tamarind cilantro chutney. It sounds exquisite.
