On Monday I spent time with my two favorite twins in the world. However, this little beauty shared not only her love, but also her germs with me.
In less than 36 hours, I was crazy sick with their stomach virus. While most people fight off a virus with ease, I have a tendency to swan dive into dehydration with great haste. I am sure the 8 mile interval run I did early in the day did not help the situation as it left me dehydrated even before the virus hit. Try as I might, I could not keep any fluid down and my heart rate went crazy; consequently, to the hospital I went.
I spent hours at the hospital getting IV fluids, medicine, etc. I then came home and attempted to rest and rehydrate.

Here are my modified paleo sick foods:
Plenty of Applesauce:
Chicken broth galore:
And baked potatoes:
Basically, we are having a bland food bonanza in the Groomes household for the next couple days.
What are your go-to sick foods?
