My father used to make me a big pot of greasy chicken soup with lots of veggies in it. I cringe at the thought now. I might make a big pot of lentil soup with garlic and lots of veggies. what is your fav foods to eat when you have a cold?

I still like the chicken soup, sans the chicken!! I use veggie broth and I don't need 'bits of meat' in it. I like a lighter soup when I'm not feeling well...the veggie broth with finely chopped veggies and some rice does the trick for me! And there is always the old standby, tea and toast!!

Veggie soup, light, herby vegetable soup. Tasty, easy to digest and not too heavy if you just don't feel like eating.

Love the post? Why not buy the T-shirt!

Light veggie soup and saltine crackers is pretty much all I can eat when I'm sick.

I prefer dry toast cut into "soldiers" or fingers. Only time I like eating soldier toast.

I always do miso soup with tofu, scallions, and spinach. 1 tbsp white miso, 1 tbsp red miso, 2 c of veggie broth. A bunch of garlic, ginger, and salt to taste. Sometimes I will put rice or udon noodles in it. Mmm.. Wonderful when sick!

I stick with the BRAT diet ... bananas, rice, applesauce or juice, and toast ... at least I think that's what all those stand for .... I'll go days on just bananas and saltines ...



I have a lot of problems with my sinuses and sometimes I'll eat food with jalapenos or other very spicy peppers to clear out my sinuses ... I also do nasal washes though which helps tremendously ...

A grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup is my favorite "sick" meal. These days, my grilled cheese is made with one slice of Galaxy vegan cheese (american) and some Follow your Heart cheddar. And my favorite sick soup is Campbell's tomato - including the high fructose corn syrup they put in it!

Soups and stews always work for me; my absolute favourite is potato & spinach soup- yumm....the one I like comes from a can and takes less than a minute in the microwave.

Vegetable soup with a lot of cayenne powder or crushed red peppers in it. It helps to numb a sore throat.

Kraft Dinner is my favourite sick food (actually, one of my favourites in general ;p). I like making it with regular soymilk. Also, fruits, grilled cheese and tomato soup is what I normally eat when sick.

I also want spicy foods when I'm sick, especially tomato soup with El Pato [hot sauce] in it.
