Question of the Week: September 4th, 2018.

What’s your favourite comfort thing when you are sick?

I’m that kind of low level sick right now where I’m mostly just too tired and brain foggy to be fully sick, and I almost want to just be fully sick so I just justify lying in bed and wallowing.

I don’t have any particular shows or foods I like when I’m sick because I’m terrible at self care, but I’m very curious as you what makes you all feel better when you are poorly

    Tea is always my go to. It’s nice and warm, it smells great, and the added liquids help kick a sickness. Mint is good for an upset stomach. Ginger helps with chills. Lemon is soothing. Also, use honey as a sweetener, if you feel the need for one, because it is unprocessed sugar and has lots of health benefits.

    Korean food is always my comfort food. But when I’m sick I like soup to warm me up, so I usually go for duk guk which is a soup with rice cakes in it. The other day I was sick and went to my local Korean restaurant, and the owner knows me so she made me duk guk even tho it wasn’t on the menu. I felt so loved!

      duk guk sounds like a great comfort food, I’ll have to try and find a place that makes it near me! & the owner of your korean restaurant sounds lovely πŸ™‚

    I tend to drink lots of tea pretty much all the time, but especially when I’m sick. Ginger’s one of my faves, with a bit of lemon if my throats full of phlegm, or just with honey if I’m having trouble keeping things down

    Really the point of comfort food is to keep you fed & hydrated even when you don’t really wanna bc you feel horrible, so anything easy to make & digest is good – chicken soup with egg noodles or oatmeal sweetened with lots of brown sugar are the classics in our household, but we’ll make whatever’s on hand that fits the bill
