22. Sugar-Free Cereals
Similarly to crackers and toast, sugar-free cereals taste-neutral enough to keep your gag reflex at bay, while still filling up your belly with some useful nutrients.
If milk is too irritating for you, try eating the cereal dry so that your body can slowly digest it without getting overwhelmed.
Ginger and lemon tea is something that is often suggested to those who are sick with the stomach flu. It turns out that it’s not just because Grandma said it was good for you, but there’s actual scientific research showing it is good for you!
Ginger is an anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial food which means it not only helps your digestive system relax, but it also helps prevent your illness from getting worse.
By the end of being sick toast, cereal and applesauce can be foods that are now driving you crazy and make you want to gag.
Pasta is a fantastic alternative food for filling up on some good fiber while ensuring that your stomach stays settled. Skip the harsh high dairy and tomato sauces as those will probably make you want to vomit again!
19. Butternut Squash
You may not have heard that butternut squash is a good food to eat while you are sick, but it’s true! To further our point, we can even say that butternut squash is a superfood for cases of flu!
It contains more potassium than an average banana while providing your body with vitamins A and C, along with folate. Vitamin A is lost through vomiting and diarrhea and the squash gives you about quadruple your daily serving so when you throw up, you aren’t losing too much of that vitamin.
