What do you eat when you really don't feel like eating?

Kajikit | Jun 20, 2010 04:31 PM

My throat's very sore and I feel generally unwell, so I'm not really hungry. But I'm starting to feel more unwell from not eating enough for three days! I think something will be appetising, but 95% of the time it either tastes horrible, the texture is wrong, the smell is vile enough to put me off even tasting it, or else I eat two bites and I'm done. This weekend almost everything that's touched my lips has ended up in the trash can with one bite taken out of it, even all the things that I usually adore like fresh bread and homemade pizza. When I get sick I usually reach straight for the dairy products and eat yoghurt and pudding, but this time they taste horrible too.

The only things that have tasted really good to me were biscuits and gravy at the diner on saturday (lovely salty rich comforting gravy with lots of sausage in it), and a roasted chicken from the grocery store (lovely salty, soft perfectly-cooked chicken.) I just heated up a can of chicken soup and the broth is comforting but the noodles still taste horrible. :( What would you eat if you were me?
