what do you eat when you are getting sick?
I'm fighting off/coming down with a cold and was wondering what(SCD food) folks eat when they are getting sick? I tend to eat pretty lousy (SCD wise) when I get sick- Rice porridge, saltine crackers with Chicken broth,Pho, ritz crackers with cheese spread, lil smokies (cocktail dogs) and the like.
I have decided not to do that this time and didn't even bother eating today until dinner and then had Chicken and beans at the Mexican restaurant across the street- namely because I was a little hungry and my wife wanted to eat.
Any suggestions as to SCD friendly comfort food? I'm contemplating Pho without the noodles, or just some rotisserie chicken but I'm looking for more options and hopefully something will excite me.

I just now finished eating a big bowl of home made chicken soup. A couple days ago, I simmered in a big pot of water: 4 chicken thighs (with bone and skin, to be removed later), 3 diced carrots, 4 diced stalks of celery, 1 diced yellow onion, 1 minced clove garlic and salt and pepper. Don't let it boil or it will get foamy and cloudy. Just cook gently until the chicken's falling off the bone. When it was done, I added some cooked kale to it. If you wanted to add legumes, you could add some canned white beans or cooked lentils.
I often have this for breakfast and it keeps me filled up for 6 - 7 hours! I especially like this when the weather's cool.
