5 Foods for Feeling Better Faster

Food is your body's fuel, and some foods can rev up your recovery faster than others. 

  • Think bland for stomach problems. Bland foods, such as crackers, baked chicken or plain potatoes, can provide nutrients without making your symptoms worse. Eat small portions of these foods six to eight times a day until you've recovered. 
  • Chicken soup is good for more than the soul. It turns out that chicken soup earned its reputation as a good food to eat when sick. There is no cure for a cold, but the liquid in chicken soup helps you stay hydrated, and the heat and steam from soup can soothe a sore throat and open up your congested nose.
  • Constipated? Learn to love legumes. Legumes - a family of seeds that includes navy beans, kidney beans, chickpeas, soybeans and lentils - are high in fiber, an essential nutrient for bowel regularity. 
  • Control migraines with cooked veggies. Many migraines are triggered by what you eat, with chocolate, cheese and smoked meats often serving as trigger foods. Cooked green vegetables, such as spinach and broccoli, are generally safe for migraine sufferers and provide plenty of nutrients. 
  • Scrambled eggs are best for a sore throat. When it hurts to swallow, soft foods are the name of the game. Eggs help you stay nourished and get enough calories for the day without irritating your throat.
