I know that when i'm sick I want to eat the usual food the I ate when I was sick as a little kid. The usual food that I'm talking about are orage juice, scrambled eggs, bacon etc. I love these foods that kind of make me like like being sick because I tend to spoil myself with these good treats.

I will tell you what I love eating when I am down with fever or cold--hot rice with rice water and my Mom's special lime pickle. It is better than doctor's pills, and I am sure it does something to cure the condition.

Depends on what kind of sick I am to tell you the truth. There are different foods that I eat for the different types of sick that I am. For example: Sick due to depression: Comfort foods, mainly ice cream. Sick due to a cold: A Greek dish that my grandmother used to make for me when I was younger, always worked wonderfully called avgo lemono (Also known as lemon rice soup) or I eat egg drop soup. Sick due to stomach flu: Toast with jam, as most others do as well I'm sure. Sick due to fever: Absolutely nothing. All I can do is lay there. Sick due to...Well...Um....not trying to be gross but...sick due to being a woman every once in awhile: Candy bars and various other kinds of chocolates. Ask any woman and I'm sure the same goes for her. They say that vitamin C is best when you are sick. Who knows. I just know that those are my favorite foods to eat when I'm sick with the above ailments. Have a good one.

I don't have any appetite when I'm sick, I can't even get the exact taste of the food I eat. Sometimes, my mother would cook porridge for me or simple soups back then. But now that I'm grown up, it's all but water therapy for me and some occasional slices of fruits on the side.
