Hello everyone! Today I had something called a “gastric emptying study” which involves eating a radioactive tracer mixed into hospital-grade scrambled eggs, a piece of bread, and a small cup of water.
Not exactly the first meal I would imagine I’d be sharing on a blog emphasizing a love for food.
The purpose of this study is to see how well my stomach digests food. It requires fasting at least 6 hours beforehand. It comprises of a series of imaging tests done at 1-, 2-, and 4-hour intervals. I’m free to leave the facility during the down time, so I decided to spend one of the breaks at Costco.
This is genius marketing. I bet it’s delicious, but the name alone would get me to buy it.
(If anyone’s curious, I ended up choosing peanut butter. I’ve inherited a lot of things from my dad, and a love for peanut butter is one of them).
