I got a stomach thing on Friday - 4:15 to be exact.... I lost a few pounds and my abs are stronger, so all in all not a bad thing ;)
It did wake me up a bit to a soft spot in my preparing. I have prepped for nutrition - for flavor - for those special items each of my family members like, but I neglected to adequately prep for an upset stomach. AND AN UPSET STOMACH MUST NOT BE IGNORED.....
In times of stress, tummies get upset. I am woefully understocked in "easy foods". Not easy to fix (although they tend to be), but EASY on the stomach. So tomorrow when I visit Sams (first time in YEARS) on the top of my list is Ramen Noodles.
Yeah, those old College Ramen Noodles - the ones that sell for about 10 cents at the grocery store. They were the best thing on my stomach on Saturday - actually, they were the only thing on my stomach this Saturday. But by Sunday, they left something to be desired in regards to my palate.
Just a shot of Tabasco with Chipolte and Worcestershire and a little parsley on top made this old dorm classic much better.
Also on my list are Saltines. CAN YOU BELIEVE I DONT HAVE ANY? Somewhere along the line, saltines gave way to Pepperidge Farm Goldfish! My guess is it was about 1995, when the first munchkin turned 1 and the saltines became a mess and she could pop those little fish in without much ado.
What would make your stomach feel better? What about your family? Make sure this area of your prepping isnt like mine and a little out of kilter.
