Ugh. Being sick is for the birds, I tell ya. Yesterday I had to leave work after a half day because I was feeling so gross! I thought for sure after taking a night off from cooking and sleeping as much as possible I’d be up and running like normal, but it just wasn’t so. I think the worst feeling in the entire world is being sick and hungry and not wanting to eat anything, so yesterday on the way home I made a 2-minute stop at the store to pick up some of the usual sick foods:
If I felt like cooking at all I would have made my own, but it was all I could do to make a little bit of (unpictured) mac and cheese later on in the day. Making soup is too complicated when you’re sick!
I’ll tell you what’s NOT too complicated: eating ice cream. I didn’t double-dip in the container because of the germs, but you can bet I wanted to! I never thought I’d be such a vanilla lover, but I have to say it’s the only thing I’ve been craving in ice cream lately. Weird.
I rounded the selection off with some more Vitamin C stuff since the actual produce at Target was a little sketchy yesterday. Throw in a long nap, a movie on the couch with Nate, and going to bed at 9 o’clock, and I think I might be feeling better today. Fingers crossed!
What are your go-to sick foods? I also like to have a little Sprite or 7-Up on my sick days, but wasn’t about to roam the store looking for it yesterday!
