What do you eat when sick?
I’ve had a nice fever and nasty cold for the past few days and have been eating chicken soup with rice and steamed pork dumplings on the side.
I’m just curious to see what other people crave when they are sick.
Used to be hot & sour soup, too bad it seems all I can get anymore is tasteless brown dreck. Also like non-herbal tea with milk & honey, mmmm comfort.
My husband got deathly ill in New Orleans few years ago (bad oyster?) & all he could keep down was won-ton soup, luckily there was a great carryout a couple blocks from our (awful) hotel!
Whenever I have a cold or a stuffy nose I crave spicy (It's all I can taste)and crunchy (for the texture) food. The last time I had a cold I ate a whole jar of mini dill pickles because of the texture.
When I have a stomach ache I eat alot of oatmeal and potatoes (baked, mashed, french fries).
Tis the season - everyone I know is sick, including me! For me, I crave basically really spicy broths - hot and sour soup, spicy pho, chicken with plenty of hot sauce...
