It was bound to happen eventually. After more than a year being vegetarian, I've got a stomach virus. But I don't deal well with eating nothing, so ...<br><br><br><br>
Normally I cook from scratch, with lots of nice veggies. Just now I'm not excited about looking at food, handling food, or eating my usual high-fiber fare. Although I do eat dairy occasionally, and eggs even more occasionally, they're not looking like food right now.<br><br><br><br>
So what's good that one can get at a small town grocery in a veg-oblivious part of the world? And is there anything that's a good protein source?

awww dear! can you get some carrots or other veggies, and a can of tomatoes, and one of lentils, and a few herbs, and make some simple vegetable soup? soup is good for sore tummies- and if you put it in the blender you can drink it like you would V8.<br><br><br><br>
i also like rice pudding when i'm sick- cos its pretty much just mush, but still tasty- rice is easy on the tummy too. just get a regular reciepe and switch the milk/cream for soy/ricemilk (if you can get any) or just cook it like normal rice, using the milk in place of water, and sprinkle a little sugar or whatever on the top, maybe top with some jam, or bananas, or applesauce, or fruit, too. or do oatmeal- easier, and filling.<br><br><br><br>
you could try some toast with peanut butter on it, if you can face it? or some carrot sticks dipped in peanut butter?<br><br><br><br>
i find that lots of small snacks is the way to go if i feel ill, just try and stuff something small in your mouth every now and then- easier on the tummy than big meals too!<br><br><br><br>
treat yourself kindly and i hope you feel better soon.

Ditto to what purpelle suggested. In childcare arenas, we often suggest the BRAT diet for upset tummies and in particular, diarrhea.<br><br><br><br>
Bananas<br><br>
Rice<br><br>
Applesauce<br><br>
Toast<br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Applesauce and toast is my choice when I am sick. And plain hot tea.<br><br><br><br>
My mom, who never drinks milk otherwise, eats milk toast. I always know she is really sick when she does that. She makes toast, slightly burnt, butters it lightly, pours warm milk over it and tops it with a poached egg with a little salt and pepper. All I can say is BLEEEECCCCCHHHHH!!!!<br><br><br><br>
If you have some white miso and vegetable broth on hand, make some easy miso soup. A tablespoon or two of miso stirred into a cup of hot vegetable broth. You can add some small cubes of tofu if you like. It is a comforting and almost instant soup.<br><br><br><br>
I am really sorry you're sick. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> Get well soon.

Poor Bios, few things are ickier than a bad tummy in the summertime! Feel better soon. . .<br><br><br><br>
I second the rice pudding suggestion. Low-fat ice cream or tofutti is good, too. And don't forget the world's stomach-friendliest beverage: ginger ale. (Contrary to popular belief, it need not be either flat or warm to help, so pop open a fresh can, pour over a tall stack of icecubes, and <i>coooool</i> off!<br><br><br><br>
Best, Bean Lady

I eat a lot of soy yogurt, toast and bananas when I'm sick as well as light soups. I reccomend homemade chocolate pudding as well. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Feel better soon!
