Rest + Relaxation

I’m kind of bad at actually resting and relaxing at home. (On vacation, with a tropical drink in hand? Sure.)

I’m always doing something–cleaning, blogging, catching up on something on my to-do list.

But I have the beginnings of a cold, so last night, I didn’t clean. I didn’t blog. I didn’t do anything productive. I laid on the couch and read a book.


And ordered some takeout, since being sick makes me really hungry for some reason. I got sweet and sour tofu from Zen Palate, a vegetarian restaurant. This satisfied my Chinese food craving without being too unhealthy. I wouldn’t call it healthy, but it’s definitely made with more quality ingredients than regular Chinese food.


I actually had a second lunch, too, since chicken noodle soup didn’t even come close to satisfying my hunger. I had a hot Italian Margherita wrap from Pret, and it was amazing–once I took out the olives.

Does being sick make you really hungry, too? What’s your favorite food when you’re sick?
