Hungry Hungry Sicko

April 4, 2011

On Sunday morning, I listened to my body (and Lionel Richie), and I took it nice and easy.

Relaxing is not something that I do well.  In fact, I kind of stink at relaxing.  I’m the sort of person who pops right out of bed in the morning (kind of like a Pop Tart…but a healthy one…not a processed one, of course).

For most of the day, I did the impossible.  I lounged on the couch all day and watched The Parent Trap, Father of the Bride, and Bride Wars.

The most productive thing about all of that is that I got to practice my “Franck Eggelhoffer” impersonation (Martin Short’s character in Father of the Bride).

You’d think that having a runny nose, clogged ears, scratchy throat, and burning eyes that I wouldn’t really be hungry.


My body was totally still up for steak, wine, and popcorn Sunday.

One of the best parts of the meal was the sauteed mushrooms Michael and I sometimes pair with it.  These are absolutely delicious and flavorful.

Sauteed Mushrooms

1 tablespoon Earth Balance (any butter will work)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 lbs fresh baby bella mushrooms, sliced
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
Black pepper (to taste)

Melt butter over medium heat in a large pan.  Add garlic and saute for 2 minutes. Add sliced mushrooms, stir to coat, and cook for about 5 minutes. Drizzle soy sauce into the mushrooms. Sprinkle with black pepper. Continue cooking over medium heat for about 10 minutes or until desired sauce has thickened up a bit.  Remove from pan and serve.

After dinner, we had popcorn and watched a movie (because you know, I didn’t watch enough movies earlier in the day).

I also convinced Michael that the only thing that could heal my sick body was an extra bucket of popcorn… so we popped two buckets last night.

Everything in moderation. 🙂

Listening to my body must have worked because I do feel a little better today.  A visit to the juice bar just might be in order though.

How did you spend your Sunday?

Have a happy healthy day!
