  • Food you crave when ill

    Asalaamu alaikum

    Some people go "off" food when they are ill whilst others just want to eat.

    Whenever I feel unwell I get cravings for food that tastes tangy (is there such word)?. Say if I was to have daal I would want to squeeze lemon on it or would want tartar sauce with whatever I eat. Also crave kerala (bitter gourd) curry sometimes when ill.

    I do not mean like when you are feeling depressed and you just feel like eating or stuffing your face with chocolate. More like when you are ill for example have a fever or serious cold.

    What kind if food do you lot like when unwell?

      It does sound like pregnancy symptoms but am not. It happens everytime I feel unwell though.

        Walaykum salam,

        It depends on why I'm ill. If I feel a bit nauseous then I need lemon or lime to help take that feeling away. If I'm ill with a cold or flu, then I also lose my appetite so don't feel like having full meals but I need something light, so then we make a simple thai style chicken soup and it's very good for soothing colds. I used to boil noodles in it to make it into chicken noodle soup and it was REALLY amazing and delicious, but now that I can no longer have gluten so I don't do that anymore. It looks like a simple dish but it's very nice. Here's an old pic I have of the last time I had it with noodles *reminisces

          Sister have you tried gluten free noodles? Some supermarkets sell them such as Tesco.

            I've tried gluten free soba noodles and rice noodles but they taste completely different from the (wheat flour) egg noodles I used to have such as those in the pic so they wouldn't work in this dish and haven't yet found a product that would work. Rice noodles do taste pretty good in gluten free seviyan though so sometimes I have that on Eid so that I don't feel left out.

              My wife eats gluten free and those noodles taste strange and the gluten free pasta. She makes gluten free cookies and you can tell they are gluten free.

                When ill, I crave chicken soup, very rarely in fact I don't remember ever crave anything else when ill or just generally feeling down.

                  I crave freekeh - which is basically chicken soup with cracked wheat (bulgur) and bread. I also crave juice as well, orange or cranberry.

                    I am sorry you can no longer have gluten, may Allah make things easy for you to find good substitutions. Don't forget about trying steel cut oats. I have recently gotten into them and never realized they can be cooked with savory flavors. I've been cooking them in chicken broth with mushrooms and it comes out really tasty.

                      Oats don't suit me either. I don't seem to digest it very well. Good old apple porridge used to be just the thing to keep me warm on a cold day. One day years ago I had to go to an appointment and it was snowing and freezing outside, but before I went out, I ate a bowl of my apple porridge, then I went out wearing my gloves and my wool and cashmere winter coat and honestly- I did not feel cold. It's like that Ready Brek advert where they show the kid surrounded by a warm glow outside. After the short appointment, I had to go home in my mobility scooter so I was a bit exposed to the elements but that porridge kept me warm all the way through the snowy path home so that was very nice. Admittedly by the time I got home my thumb was a bit cold but nothing significant- what I ate really shielded it from the elements. I'd highly recommend it as a winter breakfast for school kids (ironically I hated the thought of porridge during my school years cos' it just looked mushy and bland).

                        Sister neelu I was going to as if you can have barley but that also has gluten aswell as semolina.

                        I don't know why but I never really liked porridge. I remember the Ready brek advert in the 80s and us siblings made our mum buy it. We did not like it but we ate it (with jam) just so next time we asked for another new food product she buy it and not say we waste stuff.

                        I have barley porridge instead now alhumdulillah. I find that tastes much better especially with dates.

                            Chicken soup seems popular.

                              I like drinking (Pakistani) tea - with cinnamon and cardamoms.
