good food, bad guts saturday

i haven't been feeling very well for the last week or so. none of my usual tricks seem to be working to get me out of it, so i decided to do a week-long fast/detox. i'm only eating foods high in soluble fiber, as suggested by heather van vorous. today is day 2, so i can't report how successful it is overall, but i'm not exactly feeling better yet. i'm eating mostly white bread & corn cereal, but i do have a couple "whip-up" recipes to share for when you have an upset stomach:

super-easy, super-tasty jasmine rice
cook however much jasmine rice you want in your rice cooker or according to package directions. add in vanilla soy milk to taste & approximately 1 tablespoon honey, then sprinkle with cinnamon & nutmeg. heat up or leave it cold, & that's it! you're done! now enjoy!

comfort food root veggies
bring approximately 8 cups of veggie or chicken broth to boil. add a dash of hot sauce if you like & are feeling brave. chop carrots, turnips, zucchini, & any other root veggies you have on hand. add carrots, turnips, & any other slow-cooking veggies to the boiling broth. let cook while broth continues to boil for 15 to 20 minutes, 20 minutes if you like you're veggies more mushy than crispy. add zucchini & any other quick-cooking veggies. let cook 5 to 10 minutes more. remove veggies from broth, & serve by themselves or over rice.
