The "sick foods" people often fall back on tend to be pretty carby - toast, noodles, ice cream, etc. So what to do on a low-carb diet?
These are the things I'm eating while I'm sick. I like to have some of these things in the freezer for when illness strikes:
- Chicken soup with vegetables
- Cinnamon Toast made with flax meal bread (for a special treat, put 1 tablespoon cinnamon and some sweetener in the batter)
- Muffins (several low-carb muffin recipes on this page): Also, I was experimenting with some muffins a couple of weeks ago that didn't turn out well, so I froze them. I'm thinking of making them into an easy bread pudding.
- Sugar-Free Jello
- Sugar-Free Ginger Ale
