What Do You Eat When You're Sick?

What Do You Eat When You're Sick?

Earlier this week, I was feeling a little under the weather. My head was cloudy and I couldn't decide what I wanted for lunch. It did however, get me wondering: What do you like to eat when you're sick?

If you are stuffy I have just the little trick..... Pin Rice Noodle Soup from PF Changs, I swear by this stuff when I am sick, just call and order it go pick it up or have someone to do it for you, sit back eat and let it do it's magic on your sinuses.

I love to eat spicy foods when I'm sick. It's the only thing I can taste. I head to Taco Bell for the Fire Sauce.

soup. my mom also used to make me drink Sprite and I have the weird memory of always being served Smack's cereal when I was sick as a very young kid. I hated Smack's cereal but my mom told me to eat it when I was sick. Now I treat myself to chocolate or ice cream if I'm sick just because. :)

A little chicken broth if I feel up to it but I usually munch slowly on saltine crackers. Sometimes I'll also have some applesauce.

I like lots of different things, all depending. Soup, toast, macaroni, I've never ever ever had jello... Sometimes I like raviolli or even spicy foods like curry or hot and sour soup (which is chicken broth based).

depends - when i have a cold i like lots of spicy stuff (soup, stir fry, anything really) but with a flu, like the one i just got over, i can really just have soup and tea since i always have a sore throat at the same time. apple juice is great too. as for the soup, it must be really brothy, but my best friend makes all kinds of soups so any of his will do - lentil, sambaar, channa batata (chickpea and potato), something hardy to keep my strength up but nothing too thick. :D

Quaker's Oatmeal... Maple/Brown Sugar flavor. Or Kraft's Mac and Cheese. Have no idea why I crave those things... but when I feel bad that is what I go looking for...
