Wonton soup from a Chinese restaurant (has to be the right amount of salty). Ginger ale. Weirdly, the only times I crave Ginger Ale are when I'm sick or on an airplane. Must be a leftover relic from childhood.

If I have an upset stomach kind of illness, I crave poached eggs and cinnamon toast with hot tea.

When I have a really, really bad cold I only want to eat potato chips and Ben and Jerry's ice cream. I think it's because I can actually taste the salt in the chips. The ice cream feels good on my throat and, again, I can actually taste it.

I haven't felt well today. Went to urgent care and have more bronchitis and another ear infection.

I ate a biscuit for breakfast. Jersey Mike's #13 mini for lunch. Not too hungry.

I'd really like a bowl of brunswick stew.

My mother always made custard when we were sick. It's nourishing and it slides right down your throat. Especially good while still warm. Creamy and comforting.

But I'll take toast or scrambled eggs too.

Almost never sick but got stomach flu while traveling this winter. Only thing that sounded appealing was my wife's suggestion of warm chicken broth with garlic and ginger. Sure enough, it was great!

It depends what I have; if it is related to surgery or something like that I would want one thing, if it is a stomach ailment another and if it is a cold still another. Normally I just want to try and sleep, but if I do want food, I prefer carbs to anything. As for something to drink, ginger ale is the one thing I want when I don't feel well. If I do want something hot I will stick with my coffee.

If I'm not so sick that I still have my taste buds about me, I'll want a savory, down home style southern meal with all the fixings

I like tomato soup or tea, and I normally don’t drink tea.
