i just learned that it's best to eat nothing when you are sick; it interrupts the body's natural healing process (which includes fever, aches and pains, etc.)...so forget what most doctors recommend; they are treating the symptoms, not the illness.
now that you're hungry, i'd say go with lighter foods (i had the flu a week ago...best to ease back in for a day). probably one of the best things i can think of is garlic soup. here's a link to a thread about it: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum/thread19191.html
it has broth/stock (go with chicken instead of veggie), garlic, eggs, spices...and it's delicious. it's also light, easy, and makes you feel better. after that, move up to more solid foods like eggs and cooked veggies, then to meat and whatever. i had the flu on monday, garlic soup and gatorade on tuesday, and was back to real food and exercise by wednesday. something in that soup works.
