We have been a little under the weather here which you may know if you follow My Plant-Based Family on Facebook. We had a nice little discussion going on this weekend, many people left their favorite tips for beating the flu. While we are mostly better we will stay quarantined as much as possible, especially the kids. My husband and boys were hardest hit by illness, I’m hopeful that I wont get as sick as them, but I do have some cold symptoms.
Since I’m not really sure how we will be feeling I’m not making a formal Meal Plan but I’ll share a little of what we will be eating.
Breakfast will likely be oatmeal, toast, and fruit or some combination of those. I’ve been feeding my boys a pint of blueberries a day, they love them.
Lunch will likely be leftovers as we have quite a bit. Two new delicious soups, nachos, hummus and veggie sandwiches, beans, and Chickpea Salad (I’ll post this recipe this week).
Snacks will be fruit and veggies. I’m trying to keep things easy.
Dinner will be a lot of soups. They are so easy you really should be making them too. We have a ton of broccoli we need to eat so I foresee Potato and Broccoli Soup, Taco Soup, and probably a Chickpea (GF)Noodle Soup. I may work in some more interesting meals if we are all feeling better later this week. We have so many leftovers though I’m not worried about cooking much.
There are a lot of great things about this Meal Plan; its frugal, it’s easy, it’s gluten-free, and it will be very nourishing as we recover. I’m so happy I made a new batch of my Dry Broth Mix last week. It will come in very handy. I have a lot of basic ingredients ready in the refrigerator including: pinto beans, lentils, quinoa, chickpeas, and plenty of fresh fruit and veggies.
What is your favorite thing to eat when recovering from illness?
