Yes, yes. Sick again. Okay, well not at the moment. I’m over this one, but I spent all day Friday throwing up or feeling like I was going to throw up, and the rest of the weekend feeling slightly woozy every time I ate something.
I’m so sick of being sick!
And that’s it for my whine fest today. But since we’re talking about being sick, I thought I’d share with you my “sick foods.” Everyone has them. Those foods you eat only when you’re sick? The ones that generally make everything just a little bit better.
My mom had a sick food for everything:
Fever? Rainbow sherbet and 7up float
Tummy ache? Saltines and Gatorade
Cold? Lipton’s noodle soup. You know? The one that comes from a box in powder form?
Morning ickiness that could be sickness but could just be grogginess? Cream of wheat with a little brown sugar and milk
In my adult years, I’ve taken some of those with me. Friday I survived on Lipton’s soup and Gatorade, pretty much exclusively. There were a few saltines, a little bit of applesauce and a half bowl of Cheerios in there somewhere, but none of that seemed to stay in place.
What are your favorite foods to eat when you’re sick?
