Let’s make this clear: I hate being sick.
I do not count having a cold, the sniffles, body aches as being sick. That’s simply not feeling well.
Sick = can’t get out of bed, don’t want to get out of bed, only get out of bed when you absolutely must (for reasons that can’t be mentioned in a public forum of polite readers!).
I don’t know if I have a touch of a stomach bug or if I had food poisoning, but the last 36 hours have not been my best. I’m going back to work today thanks to God’s miracle food: bananas.
I love bananas on cereal, blended into chocolate milk (try it Tammy – really, it’s great!), in fruit smoothies, on peanut butter or just by themselves. And when I’m really sick, it’s about the only thing I want, and am able, to eat.
I suppose it’s the smoothness of the fruit’s flesh, plus the high levels of potassium that are so restorative.
Here’s to the banana!
