Hot orange-cinnamon tea with sweetener... mmmmmmm..... Just great for those chills and sore throat. Chicken noodle soup helps me, long on soup and short on noodles. I like to buy those 'pre-roasted, rotisserie chickens' and take all the meat off, using that for a meal. Then I take the skin, juices and bones and cover them with water and cook them in the pressure cooker for about 25 minutes. Makes GREAT chicken stock! If you do become ill Claire-Bear be sure to pay attention to your sugars. Illness can goof you up, especially if you take your meds but go back to sleep and forget to eat.
I also like old fashioned oatmeal with lots of cinnamon when I'm feeling yucky. It's a high fiber carb that takes a long time to be absorbed and the cinnamon helps with the sugar levels. Hope you're feeling better soon.
