The inpatient Vegan, part 3: Vegan MoFo day 16

Even during the shittiest of times, it's still possible to find things that make the corners of your mouth turn upwards.

Small joy #1. Therapy dogs.  The hospital I stayed in for the past three days has a program for shelter animals to become therapy dogs for the patients.  It's good for the dogs, and great for the patients.  The dogs become socialized and learn basic obedience, while the patients get a distraction from their illness.  It certainly was the highlight of my three day stay.

Pup time is the best!
Small joy #2. Being marked down as a caffeine restricted diet (aka only decaf coffee), and having my nurse bring me a refill of regular by accident.  Shhhh, don't tell!

Small joy #3.  Never getting tired of oatmeal.  Oatmeal and hummus, oatmeal and hummus, oatmeal and hummus.  I may have starved or had to go on TPN otherwise.

Small joy #4.  Realizing even though 75% of my favorite foods are going to be forbidden while on the low FODMAP diet, I can still eat sweet potatoes and peanut butter in excess.  This makes my heart happy.

Small joy #5.  These....

Small joy #6.  Finding out that I'm not truly crazy, even after having a total of 5 psychiatry consults.  Bummer, man.  The "brain-gut axis" and "stress pain loop" theories that doctors like to toss around got shot down by the shrink brigade.

Unfortunately, I think I've reached my maximum for MoFo posts unless a miracle happens between now and the end of the month.  I will try to get some more food and reviews up, but things are pretty hectic.  I may surprise myself, so we'll see!

The inpatient Vegan, part two: Vegan MoFo day 14

Which is worse , hospital food or the reason you were admitted? None of the desserts are safe. A banana is not a suitable replacement for a cookie, guys. But hey, hummus!

I Heart Vegan MoFo: Friday Favorites - Vegan MoFo day 12

It's with great sadness, that I must break from food for today as my food bag isn't cooperating with me. What's almost as good as eating?  Perusing the foodie-sphere and torturing myself with an onslaught of drool-inducing imagery.

Clear the brain cobwebs - AM eats:

Sweet Potato Chili

Stuff for sugar sluts:
Melty chocolate brownies!
