OMG! I totally gave myself food poisoning!

Or at least that's what I've convinced myself :\

So that pasta dish from last night that tasted so DELICIOUS? I woke up at 1:30am with a queasy feeling and proceeded to vomit for a good 2 hours! AGH! Needless to say I didn't make my 12 mile run before work this morning.

I'm convinced it was the chicken sausage I used. I usually go with the Aidells fully cooked chicken sausage, but I decided to give a new brand a try. The rest were fresh veggies so I really don't know what else it could be. UGH. I'm SO bummed! That pasta was so freaking good and now I'm too scared to eat the leftovers...AND I have 3 more links of that damn sausage! Fail!

I was able to stomach some breakfast around 10am.
Went with the standard
Fage 0% Total Yogurt and topped it with some honey, pumpkin seeds, french vanilla granola and crasins. By far the best yogurt combo I've had so far :)

Before I left the apartment, I made a piece of toast with peanut butter and grabbed a Peanut Butter Chocolate Luna Cookie so I didn't starve through the next 7 hours of work. Once I got there, I found out that my manager thought he gave himself food poisoning as well since he found himself in a similar situation last night! Then I realized that
we both got chocolate frozen yogurt at some point yesterday afternoon...perhaps that's the culprit??? But wouldn't that have kicked in earlier? Stumped. Think I'll blame the chicken sausage.

When I got home from work, I wasn't exactly starving, but I knew I had to eat something so I decided to do some more experimenting (yes, before my second attempt at my 12 mile run). I picked up a bag of Kashi 7 Whole Grain Pilaf - Fiery Fiesta
And a package of
seitan
It looked tasty and interesting at the store and I must say, it wasn't bad.
Good texture - like extra firm tofu. I'd totally get a different flavor next time and use it in a stir fry or something! Fingers crossed this experiment goes well ;p

Since I never like to eat packaged items on their own, I decided to heat up the
Kashi Pilaf with some leftover canned corn, chopped up arugula, a handful of chopped seitan, and half a tomato. I also decided to troast (toaster oven roast) the rest of the broccoli I bought yesterday.
Since I had half an avocado leftover from my sushi bowl, I sliced it up and topped my bowl off :)
Ok, maybe not the prettiest dinner bowl, but it was pretty tasty! The Kashi pilaf had a slight kick to it and overall, good flavor. I mean, the corn that was in the pilaf was a weird texture so I'm glad I added my own in. This is definitely going on my quick and filling meal list!

I'm off to catch up on sleep (since I really couldn't sleep after all that sickness) so I can get my run in tomorrow. Agh. I feel like such a slacker :\ This one will be TOTALLY alone! Wish me luck :)

Yuck... I say it's the fro yo... but I know that I can never eat the last thing I had before getting sick... for a long time.

Where'd you find that seitan? I've been looking for some for months because I'm too lazy to make it ;)

Aww poor thing! Hope you feel better by tomorrow, but if not, don't sweat the 12 miler.

When I got plantar fasciitis while training for my first marathon I was out for a full 6 weeks in the middle of training and I was fine - you are in great shape and your body can afford to miss a few runs :)

Ahh food poisoning is the worst! :( I like the combo you did in your fage yogurt. I'll have to try the pumpkin seeds!
