Well, it happened. Being exposed to too many adults who don't know how to cover their mouths when they cough (SERIOUSLY) has caught up to me. I have a slightly sore throat, and I'm hoping that it doesn't get any worse. I'll be spending the day drinking gallons of hot tea and eating applesauce with fruit. I generally frown upon over the counter medicines because I think they're pointless and a big waste of money. I'd rather follow Hippocrates' advice of Let food be thy medicine, thy medicine shall be thy food. Of course, a balanced, plant-based diet is generally a good safeguard against illnesses, but apparently it's not enough when you're within close proximities of people who won't cough into their sleeves for days at a time. (Is it SO HARD, people? Really?) Yeah, I'm a little bitter. I've never been good at being sick, even slightly, like now.
I guess this down time will give me a better opportunity to scour the new cookbooks I picked up from the library last week. Anyone have any recipe recommendations from the following books?
Okay, Feasting on Asphalt is not quite a cookbook, and though there are recipes in it, they're not quite vegan-friendly. I just have a big foodie-nerdy-crush on Alton Brown. Plus, this book is about him on the road, which makes it double awesome for me.
Here's hoping I'll bounce back soon (as in, TOMORROW).
