I'm a great fan of most any kind of broths. Warming liquids seem to help me when I'm feeling "puny." I also love french onion soup and will adopt nearly any proposal which will support me in this indulgence! I do "cheat" a bit on it, and use some ultra-low carb bready something to float the cheese (and lots of that!).
I also love eggs. Soft-boiled are something of a fetish for me lately. Used to be I'd eat them occasionally. Then I started eating them every morning. Now sometimes I'll eat them for breakfast AND dinner. Go figure. That's where my hunger leads me. Who am I to quibble? They were a challenge for me to master at first. Now I can get them cooked perfectly: to the point that I can actually break the shell and scoop the entire innards out without breaking into the yolk (which is deliciously liquid even tho the white is set). At the moment, I can't imagine a time when soft-boiled eggs would not appeal, sick or not.
If it's something cold and sweetish you're craving, try blending up some of the frozen berries meant to be used for smoothies. You don't have to make it with a lot of carb-y ingredients. Blend 'em and strain 'em and add only enough sugar (or substitute of your choice) to keep them from being "pucker material." I like the SF DaVinci syrups (in amazing flavors) meant to be used in coffees. I use those in lots of things. A favorite is the blueberry...which, incidentally, sounds like a likely addition to pureed frozen berries! That sounds a likely recipe too: freeze 'em as pops. mmm
And although it's a classic sickness food, I happen to also love gelatin. It's cool and soothing and easy on my stomach. I make my own, sugar-free. I can barely keep a stock in the fridge. Sick or not!
...the problem with people these days is
they've forgotten we're really just animals ...
We did not create the web of life; we are but a strand in it.
We don't have souls. We ARE souls. We have bodies.
