Yes, the same boyfriend that has been tormenting me with pizza and chinese food.
This flu/cold yuck has seriously been kicking my hieny. Yesterday we went to the grocery store so I could stock up on foods for this week. I got some whole wheat pasta and some turkey and some chicken. YAY! The store wandering took it out of me though, and by the time we got home and got everything into the house and all of the bags to the kitchen all I could do was slump onto the couch in a slug-gy heap.
My boyfriend was sweet and put everything away and did some prep work for me - including making some juices for the fridge. For dinner he brined and roasted some chicken breasts and made some whole wheat spaghetti with grape tomatoes, portobellos, artichoke hearts, yellow bell pepper and fennel. I had a small plate of pasta with lots of veggies and a few slices of chicken. I used a smaller salad plate for my 'dinner' plate to keep my portion size dainty. The only thing that gave me a very faint tinge of green was the shaved parm he liberally sprinkled over his mamoth sized portion. I am sure the cheese was lovely, but my dinner was wholely satisfying and delicious.
My gratitude goes out to all of those people who offer their help when a body is feeling low!
