Comfort Food Dinner

I woke up with a raging migraine this morning - first one I've had in ages. I had a bit of a headache last night and then when I woke up this morning I could barely even get my eyes open. I got up and took some meds then went back to bed and passed out until 1:30. I got up and took more meds and dozed off and on until 5:30. I'm finally feeling better now.

I certainly wasn't in the mood to cook, and after being ill all day I wanted something easy and comforting and wanted to have some of my favorite band-friendly "healthy junk food" rather than turning to the drive-thru.

Clockwise from top...

Applegate Farms all natural chicken tenders - I love these. They taste like real chicken, not overly processed, and are a good texture. Excellent source of protein.
Happy Bites Veggie Tots - these are little organic bites of happiness - black beans, corn, sweet potato, carrots, spinach, and potato all in a happy little tot.

Peas of Mind broccoli Veggie Wedgies - similar to a french fry but made with broccoli and baked. Delicious! 70 calories, 2 grams of protein and 2 grams of fiber per serving.

Bulls-Eye Carolina-Style Barbecue Sauce - tangy, not too sweet vinegar based sauce. 50 calories for 2 Tablespoons.

Total: 455 calories and 23 grams of protein.

Sorry about the migraine - I used to get them and they are truly debilitating. Your comfort food looks awesome, though - but the only store in my area that has the Peas of Mind (LOVE this) is about 25 miles from home :(

Feel better!

I'll have to search my local store for those. They sound YUM!

Are you a vegetarian? If so, I didn't even realize! Sounds like a fun faux-comfort-food dinner. :)
