Flu season is still in full force around here, and I got hit hard last week. I was so sick. Which is rather unusual. The last time I felt that horrible was two years ago. So I guess I’m still lucky. But being sick is annoying. Period.
I’ve always wished that I was one of those people who lose their appetite when they are sick. I’m the exact opposite. I get ravenous! What’s even worse, I tend to crave junk food. Still, I’ve been doing my best to eat mostly healthy food. I know that when I’m sick my body needs nutrients more than ever.
So here’s what I ate last Sunday, when I wasn’t coughing and sneezing.
The usual breakfast. Spring can’t come soon enough. Cucumbers and tomatoes are so freaking expensive right now. But that can’t stop me from eating them on a daily basis.
Second breakfast! Who else feels like a hobbit when having a mid-morning snack? Just me? Okay. Last week I bought another bag of my beloved Alnatura Früchte-Müsli. It’s so good! I like to soak it in rice milk to soften the oats and dried fruit just a little. And I added a sliced banana.
Having a big salad for lunch has become an almost daily habit. I’m not fighting that craving.
That’s probably the most random dinner in quite a while. I was running out of inspiration, obviously. Just a bowl of rice with vegetable pancakes and black beans, that were simmered in soy sauce and syrup.
To be honest, I also had some chocolate. But I ate it to fast to get a photo.
What foods do you crave when you are sick?
