Ick. Ugh. Blgggghhhh. When it comes to "terrible, horrible, no good days," having the flu ranks as number one. So what can you do to nourish yourself when the Grinch has taken away your good health? Get the dish here.
- Make sure to stay hydrated. Keep a bottle of water by your side. If you're feeling nauseated, try a cup of ginger herbal tea. Avoid caffeine, which is dehydrating and can upset your stomach. Recommended: Traditional Medicinals Organic Ginger Aid tea.
- Mom was right: Chicken soup truly can help to heal you, according to studies. Get the home-cooked flavor without the fuss with Mrs. Grass Chicken Soup Mix with Extra Noodles or Lipton Soup Secrets Extra Noodle with Real Chicken Broth.
- Can't handle food? Try making your own frozen pops by using a pop maker, such as the Tovolo Groovy Ice Pop Molds. Try organic apple juice like Lakewood pure organic apple juice.
- If you're suffering from diarrhea, use the BRAT diet (bananas, rice, applesauce and toast).
- Plain toast and a cup of tea can make a soothing combination. Although it's labeled for kids, Traditional Medicinals Just for Kids Organic Tummy Comfort Herbal Tea can comfort adults, too!
- Pregnant women sometimes say that nothing works for nausea except saltine crackers. And they also can help when you have the flu. Recommended: Annie's Homegrown Organic Bunny Classic Crackers Saltines or Late July Organic Round Saltine Crackers.
