What does anyone eat when they have the flu. I have a sick tummy, headache and have been sleeping all day. Now it's evening and I really want just a little plain soup. any suggestion?

Best thing to do, eat as little as possible. Maybe light fruit juice (if someone can make it for you)...if not, light, juicy fruits. When your body is going through cleansing, it's always best to allow it to focus all (or at least most) of it's energy on healing and cleansing rather than digestion.
Drink lots of water too and rest as much as you are able to. Feel better soon!

i've been reading about that when i got sick a little while ago
basically just drink water, don't eat much, - citrus fruits are very good to get better.. also papaya

Thanks for the quick replies. right now I can't keep anything down except I've been sipping on one 10 oz coke all day. I quess I'll just not have anything till this passes.
Is there any way to make a very plain raw slightly warm soup?

Last year I was deathly ill quite unexpectedly which is another factor that led me to raw. All I wanted was 'lemonade ice chips'. Every day morning noon and night. Seems like you can make real lemonade ice chips ie: mix it up in a container, lemonade, agave or raw honey, water, taste to make sure it's perfect, freeze. Once frozen, stick cubes in a plastic baggie and beat the crap out of it with some sort of musher LOL! I'm not a cook so I can't remember what that little hammer thingy is called.
Here is another thing I do: hot water with fresh mint. It's the only hot thing I have, but I am transitioning and for me it works great.
Coke is the worst. It will make you even more sick. Someone suggested a great raw ginger ale, but I can't stand real ginger, this is much better for you though.
Confuscious say: You must be good to yourself when you are sick. Coke does not do a body good!

Thanks so much for the lemon ice idea, I juiced fresh lemons with water and a dap of honey and froze in into icecube trays, it was refresing, my tummy liked it and it really just hit the spot. Thanks.

My two favorite things to sip when i have a tummy ache are: pepermint tea and chamoile tea depending on the type of tummy issues i am having.
an honest opionion would be I don't think it would be best to drink the coke, for numerous reasons. One its carboninated, the sugar is artifical....basically the soda your drinking to help, in the long run will just make your body grumpy(at least for me it does :D )
lots of water too, very few solids....
good luck!!! feel betters! :D
