So sick of being sick!

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?
