BuzzFeed Oz just went whale watching. It was awesome, but I was sick.

Hopefully by recounting my diet today you will not fall into the same queazy journey I did.

6:45AM: Protein shake.

I'm not really sure if this had a big effect on me throwing up big time on a boat earlier, but it might have.

7:00AM A swig of pineapple juice.

Drank this straight out of the bottle because I'm hardcore. Also helps get rid of the taste of protein shake.

BRIEF SHOWER

Gotta stay clean.

7:15AM: Coffee with MCT oil (it's like coconut oil) and grass fed butter.

Look, I know this is the most pretentious sounding thing ever. And if I had my way I wouldn't have to tell you BUT for the sake of the public and making sure no one gets sick on a boat again I must! p.s It's actually really good you should try it.

I don't usually have an apple this early in the morning but it was Monday and I was feeling adventurous.

10:30AM: Greek yoghurt with mixed nuts.

I think this is probably the most likely culprit. Dairy is always scary.

12:10PM: Two slices of toast with peanut butter.

Also a dodgy choice - and I can tell you from the taste of my own vomit that this was the most prevalent.

And that's about it.

So to avoid this:

Or this:

Maybe consult this sick little man's day and decide what will/won't work for you.

I could also just be soft.
