What you do eat when your sick?

Me, I have homemade soups and tea with lots of ginger and lemon to soothe my throat and clear my sinuses. Today I made a beef broth soup with lemon juice, a an egg, lots of grated ginger and garlic, dried mushrooms and a packet of ramen noodles it feels really good.
Trader Joe's lemon ginger echinacea juice, diluted by half with water and heated up with a few extra squirts of lemon.
Doctored up ramen, ice cream. And if the sickness is not in my tummy (like a cold) rotisserie chicken and mashed potatoes from the grocery deli often hits the spot.
And lots and lots of oranges. Just to get all that vitamin C.
It depends. A sore throat usually means soup or scrambled eggs.
If it's nausea-inducing sickness? Usually just toast with a thin schmear of raspberry preserves to see if I can keep it down. And flat ginger ale.
Lately I have been leaning heavily toward hot and sour soup, miso, and yes, good old chicken soup.
