Hi, my favorite is simple to avoid preservatives and additives. I will boil 1 chicken breast, 1 carrot, and 1 celery stick green top on with a few table spoons of garlic and salt to taste. Sometimes it is breakfast, lunch and dinner when I am really out of it. Garlic has antiviral,antibacterial, and antimicrobial properties to help the body concur faster.

The greatest love story is your own.
If you miss out of life to the fullest; they win.
You are the happiness master of your own mind.
Thought is an active dynamic energy to harmonize and corrolate good.
Clear all paths to love thru forgiveness.
I may not recognize the significance until some time later.
Is my resistance to change really that strong?
Impatience does not provide the time to learn the lesson;
Awaken new ways to approach the dissolving of a problem;

I like my mom's homemade chicken and rice. She simply shreds up chicken breast with rice and a little broth, pepper and such to taste. It is basic and very good.

Oh, this is an evil question for a toast addict like me. When I'm sick, I LOVE Texas toast with a little butter. I guess I'm saying goodbye to that one!

My personal favorite sick day food is a "homemade" chicken soup....I usually start with either chicken broth or knorr kosher vegetable soup mix, then add 1-2 diced chicken breasts(cooked or uncooked work just as well), any frozen veggies we have on hand (although I usually avoid putting in okra, as it can give it a weird texture because of okra's natural slimey-ness), a can of diced tomatoes, and either potatoes, a can of hominy, or left-over cooked rice if we have it on hand. I let it come to a boil, then turn down to simmer until everything is cooked through (usually about 20 min-1 hr.). When I use the broth, I also add garlic and sometimes a can of green chile. This is also my stand-by clean out the fridge dinner, if you haven't noticed! Other favorites are tomato soup (from the box--can't remember the brand), progresso's chicken and wild rice, lentil, or split pea soup, or comfort foods like macaroni and cheese ( I use ragu's 4 cheese sauce and tinkyada pasta when I'm in the mood) or brownies from a box. When I am REALLY miserable, I have been known to not eat anything that takes longer than 3 min to cook, such as microwave popcorn or quesadillas and hot tea.

Thankfully, I haven't been that sick in a long time....I had expected to be much sicker this year than I have been, since it is my first year as a MS teacher. I suspect it is because I got the flu shot this year.

I hope you are feeling better soon.

When I am not feeling good, I make a hot drink my friend affectionately calls her witches brew. I will put a couple(3-4) cups of water in a pan, about an inch of fresh chopped or grated fresh ginger, 1/4 cup of lemon juice. Then when I pour it into a cup, I add honey to taste. This will heal whatever ails you. ginger is good for tummy aches, but will also clear the sinuses. the honey will sooth your throat. you can also add a shot of whiskey too.

Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain.

I just take some instant rice, precooked ground turkey and chicken broth and throw in slow cooker and nibble away off on as I feel like it.

I have developed a case of bronchitis this week (my second week in on this site) and have been thinking about healthy sick-day foods. The other day I made my Superfood Soup (I posted on Spark Recipes) and today I think I'm going to order takeout Vietnames Pho soup or Thai Lemongrass soup to go and curl up under the blankets with my pet bunny watching a silly movie or something. What are your favourite sick day foods?
