Anything and everything.

What's the saying? Is it "starve a cold, feed a fever?" or is it "feed a cold, starve a fever?" It doesn't matter -- never in the history of ever (whether sick or well) have I lost my appetite. I'm always ready for another meal.

When you're sick. Nothing tastes good as your taste buds takes a hit. The best thing to serve atleast my mom gave me was bone stock. I could barely taste the flavor so just drink it down and the nutrients in there will help you.

That's how my husband is - always has an appetite - and I'm always suspicious whether he is REALLY sick because when I am REALLY sick I don't eat. I guess maybe if that happens to you, too, I'll give him the benefit of the doubt.

For colds, hot broth, preferably a bit spicy (add some sriracha to chicken or vegetable broth), and lots of hot tea with ginger, lemon juice and honey. I try to drink, drink as much clear hot liquid as possible. Starchy foods like bread or potatoes and dairy products don't taste good to me when I have a cold.

I haven't had a stomach bug for a long time, but 7-up, ginger ale, or Gatorade is what I want for that.

Hot tea, different soups. My friend stops in Chinatown and picks up hot & sour soup and wonton soup for me. Sometimes she makes chicken stock and brings over a few quarts. I have a quart of her chicken stock in the freezer from last time.

Pizza, the more grease on it, the better. Or a burger. Same as hangover food. Needs to be nasty.

Ramen noodles. I eat them once every three years or so.
