Last week, several family members were also sick , including myself. I started thinking about plant strong "sick food," and realized I don't really have any. I eat eggs so scrambled eggs are always an option for me, especially as I fight my way back to feeling normal. And, I can always count on whole wheat saltines, protein bars, applesauce, toast, oatmeal, and cream of wheat...yogurt too, if I'm feeling brave.
The main problem is that when your sick, if you're like me, you just want to grab something quick easy so you can lie down and rest, and not have to cook anything. But being vegetarian and plant strong is not always the easiest thing to be when your sick. When I was sick one day last week, all I wanted was some vanilla pudding. I admit I ate a sugar free snack pack that I found in the back of the fridge. It tasted blah but at the time it was better than nothing. I have a friend who recommended that I make "sick soup " -whatever soup I'd want when I'm sick, make it now, and freeze it for later. That's a good idea, but I know myself, and I won't do that. I'm not that forward thinking I guess.
So all of this got me thinking: what do other vegans/ vegetarians eat when they're sick? Inquiring minds want to know.
