Food You Should Eat When You’re Feeling Sick


If you’re feeling unwell, eating the right kind of food can make your body stay nourished, hydrated and help you fight off the infection faster. So here is a list of foods you can eat when you’re sick. Having the flu with its annoying symptoms of cold, fever and runny nose can sometimes completely kill your appetite. I know because I’m suffering from a bit of a cold right now. But it’s important to eat at regular intervals because restricting your calories and not eating correctly can actually slow down your body’s natural healing process. So what’s the best food to eat when you’re
under the weather? Let’s start with the most obvious. Now, it’s full of vitamins, minerals and electrolytes that your body needs when recovering from the flu blues. Plus it’s easy to cook, it’s easy to eat
and it will keep you full and hydrated. In this condition its extremely important
to drink enough liquids because they help loosen the mucus in your nose and head. Chicken soup is obviously the trusted favourite but any warm brothy soup will do the job. Lemongrass soups like tom yum and pho are great at clearing sinuses, people from Thailand swear by lemongrass’s
healing effects. Carrot & ginger soup with a little bit of turmeric will do wonders because all ingredients have natural antioxidant properties that boost recovery. A nutrient rich broth like Thukpa or mutton paya soup if you’re non vegetarian are also age old remedies. While many people often tend to eat bland food when they’re unwell, something hot
and spicy can really help sweat out your sinuses when you’re battling a cold. A sprouts masala khichdi or a soothing dal khichdi will definitely give you a healthy combination of protein and easy to digest carbohydrates for some much needed energy. You can also drink a fiery bowl of wholesome
dal or kadhi, a steaming glass of peppery rasam. Or even some hot & sour soup on a sick day can really feel like a liquid hug. Just make sure that even if you do eat something spicy it’s light and easy to digest and of course, homemade is always best but if you’re living alone and if you’re not up to cooking order from a trusted and clean restaurant. Kadha is made in some form across the world to help the sick get better. And for good reason because drinking herbal infusions like kadha or hot teas can give you a boost of vitamins and minerals. Plus it will soothe your throat, increase
your water intake and make you a little warmer and cozier. Hot Ginger-lemon water is a great option.
