Last time this happened to me, I subsisted on a diet of Gatorade and Saltines for a couple of days. Once I was brave enough to try wheat toast with peanut butter and banana slices, but it made me puke half an hour later. Learned my lesson to ease into back into eating normally and sticking to plain foods.

I too, love to eat the Ramen soup when I'm recouperating. A cup of that along with a shot of Nyquil and I am ready for a nap!
Thanks, everyone. These suggestions got me through the day!

Yogurt and applesauce are good choices when you're getting over a stomach flu.

This might sound weird but I have to have top ramen after I've been sick. And a banana. I think the sodium in the ramen soup and the potassium in the banana are what my body craves after a stomach flu. Also I can't stand the thought of having protein when I've been sick... so I stick with broth, noodles and fruit.

I'm getting over a 24hr tummy bug. Does anyone have any advice on what to eat today? I can't face my usual mountains of vegetables, but plain toast and white rice don't sound great, either. What do you eat when you are recovering?
