Since Sunday night, I've eaten: nothing, water, coconut water, 1 banana, 3 slices of toast and a bit of butter, 2 spoonfuls of yogurt, tea, 1 can of Coca Cola, and finally, a slice of salami. This very non-scientific concoction used coconut water for the lost electrolytes plus water and tea for hydration.
Food got added slowly. Very slowly, as in it took 2 days to eat the banana slowly. And sips of straight-up full-sugar Coca Cola has always settled my stomach. In fact, it's the only time I drink it.
Thankfully, I'm on the mend and here are the very safe and easy digesting meals we're having.
Oyako Donburi and rice. My husband made this tonight. Just the right amount of protein, salt and starch to ease back into eating.
Simplest Spaghetti Sauce. Again, just the right amount of carbs, salt and a bit of good fat in olive oil.
Mom's Miso Soup with Tofu. Easy to digest protein, salt and hydration. See the pattern?
