Healing Foods...I hope!
(Brown sugar pumpkin oatmeal)

We have been keeping meals really simple around here lately since the illustrator is busy working on a book and I have not been feeling well.  I am getting kinda frustrated with not feeling well because I went to the doctor on Thursday (1st time in 2 years) - I have an upper respiratory infection - and even with the antibiotics...I am still not well.  I guess when you aren't sick for longer periods of time, it hits you really hard!  Oh well, hopefully things will start to improve!  While my glands are not swollen anymore, but I have a rockin' cough that won't let me or my husband sleep!
(Soft fried egg with sauteed peppers, onions and potatoes topped with salsa.  The yolk makes such a great sauce on the veggies.)

I am a firm believer in eating well even when you are sick!  I think it is really important to get proper nutrients to help your body get over illnesses!  So, I make sure to get all of my meals in and that they are very well balanced!
(Vegetable broth with cabbage slaw.  Really easy and so delicious for a quick sick lunch.)

Do you eat well when you are sick or do you let it all go?  What is your favorite thing to eat when you are sick?  For me, everything has been really warm or really cold and easy to swallow.

    I hope you feel better soon! Honestly, I'm never sick so I wouldn't even know what to do!

    I agree about eating well while you're sick. Whoever started the trend of chicken noodle soup while lying in bed clearly disagrees lol

    Sorry to hear you are sick... when I am sick I usually like to eat a lot of warm liquids... soup sounds great... Hope you feel better soon.

    Oh you poor thing! I can't believe this thing is still rocking you.

    I am a firm believer in pigging out (er, eating) all of the time, even when (and especially when) sick. Of course, I think I have only lost my appetite twice in my entire life :)

    Yes, I'm one of those people that doesn't let sickness interfere with my appetite LOL. I usually eat normally when I am sick and find it annoying when I can't taste it. I always gravitate to carby things, like potatoes, sandwiches and pasta, when I'm sick, but I do that even when I'm not. hehe

    I'm in complete agreement with you that you should eat well when you are sick. Feeding your body and soul always helps to make you better. But I'm positive that your brown sugar pumpkin oatmeal would definitely make me feel like a million bucks! Everything looks delicious in this post! Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm so happy to have found yours!
    Hope you feel better!
