I did not plan on my son being home sick yesterday but as we know, things do not always go as planned.
I know my little boy very well. Sick means soup with guaranteed bowls of macaroni and cheese. And sometimes, all he can stomach is macaroni and cheese which means it serves as his breakfast, lunch and dinner.
We all have our sick favorites, right?
Thankfully, I am not sick so let’s take a look at what I ate yesterday while home with the little boy (who isn’t so little I suppose).
I prepared some bowls of oatmeal in the morning when I first woke up. I had a small bowl with banana once it was ready.
I normally reserve the almost empty peanut butter jars for my post-long run oatmeal but I felt like using it yesterday. So I did.
In the jar: oatmeal, frozen berries, Skoop, almond milk and peanut butter.
I was in the mood for a big greek salad like the one I had over the weekend so I made one and it totally hit the spot.
Romaine, cucumbers, plum tomatoes, feta cheese, chick peas and some hummus.
I got my son matzoh ball soup from Ben’s which is known to cure anything.
I am pretty sure that 99% of my dinners can be classified as power bowls and I am okay with that.
Sweet potatoes, quinoa, roasted vegetables and avocado with some Island Soyaki drizzled for added flavor.
Of course the macaroni and cheese made its appearance, as I knew it would. No one knows a child like the mother does.
We didn’t follow the dinner meal plan which I shared with you last week but I am hoping that tonight he is feeling better and up for what’s on the schedule!
I love that I love this new (healthified!) apple crisp recipe that I came up with over the weekend!
It’s so good, I have made it twice since Sunday — I hope to share the recipe on Friday 🙂

Hope he feels better soon! Matzoh ball soup has got to help! My Bubbi always made it for me and it has miracle powers!
seriously, it does, doesn’t it?
Boo! I’m sorry to hear about your son not feeling well. Heres to hoping that he’s doing much better today… if not I foresee more macaroni & cheese. Which is never a bad thing if you were to ask me 🙂
aw thank you 🙂
I hope that he feels better soon! When I got really sick last year, it was basically a yellow foods diet–white breads, chicken soup!
mac and cheese can count sort of in the yellow food diet!
Hope he’s better soon! Two of mine have colds that I haven’t caught so far – just hoping my body can hold out for 3 weeks!
seriously, we need to keep you germ free!
Mac and cheese is such a perfect comfort food! I love me some Kraft… it’s making me crave it right now! When I’m sick I love bagels and I love grilled cheese… so yummy.
how about grilled cheese on a bagel – so good
argh hope he’s on the mend soon- Mac and cheese cures all 😀 I always crave butter… like no other.
I love soups and smoothies when I am sick!
I don’t love soup but do eat it sometimes if I am sick. I like tomato soup though, I should eat it more often!
Hope he feels better! One of the worst things about being GF is I can’t have most regular matzo ball soups, it is one of my favorites. I remember once at camp, one girl in my bunk was really sick and her mom drove up the 4-5 hours to bring her some Ben’s 🙂
hahah – I can totally see the mom driving the soup up to camp!
I am excited to see the apple crisp recipe- it looks super yummy!
Power bowls for dinner sounds good to me- easy and delicious makes everyone happy.
exactly why I live on power bowls!
I hope your son feels better soon! When I’m sick I want soup and grilled cheese, which is what my mom always made me on sick days when I was a kid. I love mac and cheese, both homemade and those Annie’s Organics boxed mac and cheeses. We pack those for camping trips and they are so good!
I totally make him the Annie’s mac and cheese still – I like to get the bunnies since that’s my son’s nickname 🙂
I hope your son feels better soon! When I’m sick I love grilled cheese and tomato soup – there’s nothing better!
I also like a good tomato soup with grilled cheese.
Hope he’s feeling better soon! It seems like its going around… so early this year!
thank you — seems like everyone around us is sick with something here!
I definitely go for soup when I am sick! I can handle that- with crackers, and then I may progress to bread or some kind of grilled cheese or peanut butter. I hope he is feeling better!
Ah, I want your dinner!! Sweet potatoes and avocado are amazing together!
I know, such a great combo! One of my favorites.
