    Best Foods when sick

    Primal Fuel
    Well, I've run into the issue that now that I'm under the weather, my normal food solutions just won't do now. I used to turn to Saltine crackers and Gingerale, chicken noodle or cream of chicken soup and fudgescicles (don't ask me how but they always calmed my stomach). Now that I've these are no longer part of my diet, does anyone know of good sickness foods to help calm an upset stomach. Is cream of chicken soup still ok?

    When I had stomach issues a few months ago, I cooked up some beef broth and ate that for a couple of days. I even threw a little white rice into it, just to have something a bit solid.

    Cream of chicken soup is probably a bad idea. It's either commercial and filled with a lot of chemicals or homemade and has a lot of dairy, something you'll probably want to avoid if you have an upset stomach.

    Thanks. I'm snowed in and can't get to the store to get any broth. Do you by chance know how to do a homemade broth?
