I've been sick for a few days. And, I thought that perhaps it would help to allow some carbs back into my diet as they are quick to digest and provide lots of energy. I'm not going hog wild. Breakfast is sugar-free oatmeal. Other recent meals were steak w/ sweet potato, cheeseburger w/ fries, and chicken noodle soup. I'm really not sure what is best when your feeling ill... I suspect that the body will tell you what it needs in times like this. I'll probably go back to low-carb in a few more days once I am back to feeling myself again.

Also, just as an FYI -- I arrived in France yesterday. The weather is great here. I will be here two weeks followed by two weeks at home. Then, I return for almost three weeks in June. However, in June I will bring my 2 year old son, my wife, and my wife's 15 year old sister. That should be my last trip to France for a while. From July onward, I'll likely be spending a few days a week in Nashville, Tennessee instead. I can't wait! It will be so nice to once again have every weekend with my family! It will also be much easier to stick with low-carb when I can read every word on the menus and communicate requests for substitutions...

France is not the best place to try to eat low carb....their bread is to die for...and the crossiants for breakfast....drooling as I type.
I love your blog!
