I’ve had the flu, and it’s kicked my behind! I can’t remember the last time I was so sick.
In honor of the nasty lil bug that’s running around wreaking havoc, I’m posting some ideas on how to get through it.
First since it involves throwing up and diarrhea, you are advised to avoid milk, milk products and fruit juices.
Even though that spicy enchilada plate sounds good…. avoid it, and any other spicy, acid type, burn on the way down and on the way out foods…
Don’t plan on leaving the house any time soon, and, if you have to, you better know where each and every bathroom is between you and your destination.
Keep a bucket or garbage can near your bed, and remember the B.R.A.T. diet.
That’s the diet your children’s doctor recommends when they are sick. It works for adults too. It stands for Bananas, Rice, Applesauce and (dry) Toast. Most of which won’t stay down for long, but, it’s not as bad coming up as some other things, and is easy on the stomach.
Consider this my, "Public Service Announcement." Now, go, my friends, and may the flu bug of unhappiness never darken your door… BIG HUGS, Steph
