WIAW: Eating for OHSS
This edition of What I Ate Wednesday is a day full of eats while I had Ovarian Hyperstimulating Syndrome (OHSS).
Instead of coffee, even decaf… ample amounts of Nuun. ALL DAY.
For breakfast, I had heated up ham steak instead of yogurt and had instant grits instead of oatmeal. The cheese flavor packed the biggest sodium punch! Now that’s a good southern girls breakfast!
I had to lay off the sodium for a bit and had juicy apple as a morning snack. I’m probably the best apple eater you know because I get ALL THE WAY to the core.
For lunch, I was able to go home (this was when Riley was still around) and make a quick BLT. Turkey bacon “cooks up” in 2.5 min in the microwave and makes for one tasty Bacon Lettuce and Tomato sammie with a little mayonnaise on the top bread to make the lettuce stick- at least that’s my reasoning. There are few times I’ll use mayo and this is one of them.With a side of kale and mushrooms sauteed in soy sauce with ginger and garlic powder. Gotta keep that sodium up!
Todd was out of town for most of the OHSS and I couldn’t walk Ry, so I took her in the backyard to play to while I read and had some G2 for more electrolytes. I mean, look at that bump…
And dessert was the good ole’ nut butter shot, with homemade almond butter, cashew butter and sunflower seed butter. And a side of Ry cuddles of course 😉 (I wrote this post while I actually had OHSS and reading back through it and seeing this made me cry. I miss her so much!)
So there’s just an example of the sodium laden days I had. This one was actually pretty lacking on the protein front. I was lucky to get the shipment of Vega protein powder to help boost my intake. Check out the WIAW party at Peas and Crayons.
What the last thing full of sodium you ate?
