What to Eat When You're Sick (Comfort Foods)

Posted by:Lindsay S. Nixon Category: FAQ

Once the weather gets cool (and colds start flying around school, church, the office, etc.), I get emails asking what foods would be good to eat if you're sick.

I find this is a very personal question since everyone has their own “comfort foods” and what you can (or should!) eat can depend on the kind of sickness you have. For example, grilled cheese was always a comfort food for Scott, but even the Grilled Cheeze in EHH wouldn't be a great choice if he had a sore throat!  

Since most of us adopted a plant-based diet later in our lives, the comfort foods of our past don't fit the bill... so what do you do?

Make a vegan version, of course! 

Below are some of my favorite "comfort food" recipes:

Grilled Cheeze

Chickpea Noodle Soup

Chickpea Noodle Soup

Mac & Cheese

Vegetable Pot Pie

French Toast 

Cinnamon Bun Smoothie 

Cinnamon Bun Smoothie

 Plus, the Dark Chocolate Pancakes  and Shiitake Miso Soup from EHH.
