I'm so so sick!

Please help, I have some nasty stomach bug and don't cannot make any broth to drink right now, what nourishing gentle food can I ask my hubby for tonight? I feel like I need to eat something. This is the first time I have gotten sick since I started lchf in January. I feel so weak and cannot imagine how I will feel tomorrow morning if I don't eat tonight.

Do you have any bullion cubes or the granule type chicken bullion he could bring to a high heat and drop an egg in it and stir around to make a kind of egg drop soup?

So sorry you have the bug. It is really going around in the northeast right now. Feel better quick!

I'm in the same boat...been a miserable day. My go-to food when I'm sick is a pumpkin OMM. There's something particularly soothing about it...OMMs overall are great for babying your stomach. This recipe is very easy and cooks in the microwave in no time.

1 egg
1 tb oil
1 oz. SF maple syrup
1/4 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp glucomannan
1 TB oat fiber
3 TB almond fiber

Mix dry ingredients in one bowl and wet ingredients in another. Beat the egg well to be sure there are no strands of white. Finally pour the wet into dry and mix well, then microwave 2-3 minutes (depends on wattage of microwave; check the bottom after removing and if it's still wet, put it in for another minute). Serve with a pat of butter and more SF syrup. 4 net carbs.

I know a few of the ingredients are unusual for newbies, so if you don't have oat fiber, use 4 TB of almond flour instead. You can use xanthan in place of the glucomannan or skip it altogether for a more puddingy texture.

I remembered that I had some homemade chicken stock in the freezer, but thanks for the help, hopefully there won't be a next time, but next time I will be in the know!

I think eggs are good. I have made egg drop soup and found it very healing. It does not have to be home made broth. Use the commercially made stuff. It still has good stuff in it. Feel better soon.
