Lunch-time salad

With a multi-systemic disorder like EDS comes a very moody digestive system. I’ve always been such a breakfast person and for the last 5 months, I’ve been waking up not wanting to eat anything all. I don’t remember the last time I made myself a proper breakfast and enjoyed it like I used to. Not eating anything doesn’t work because there are so many pills to take and I end up forcing myself a little bit. Sometimes I skip breakfast (not by choice but because my body just doesn’t want it) completely and wait for lunch, hoping I’d be hungry enough. Like today. I’ve got more pills for later and it wouldn’t have made sense to go without eating any further so I made myself a decently heavy salad.

Let’s see, what do I have here…

  1. Baby Carrots
  2. Purple Cabbage
  3. Yellow Capsicum
  4. Sesame Soy Tofu
  5. Roasted Garlic Chicken
  6. Base of Greens and Herb Mix

And over the weekend, I made an Asian style peanut sauce  with spices and herbs too. To make life easier, I used natural peanut butter as the base. It turned out perfect!

This looks like a bouquet on my plate!
