It’s hard to write about food (Monday Meals!) when you’ve been sick and nothing is appealing. I’ve been suffering a nasty cold since Thursday evening. I feel a little better every day, but my appetite hasn’t yet returned.
I have wanted juice and fruit. We have some especially large, crisp grapes that I’ve been enjoying, as well as some blueberries. Ate some salad for dinner. I don’t eat meat, so chicken soup is out, but I enjoyed some sweet potato curry soup from my favorite place for lunch.
The Internet tells me I should have been consuming garlic, coconut water, and hot tea—presumably not all at once. It’s a little late now. I should have looked at the website earlier, but then I would have had to go to the store for coconut water. And I did not feel up to going to the store.
What do you recommend for sick friends? What do you find appetizing and comforting when you’re sick?
