I have an upset tummy, just a 24hr bug thing that's going around at the moment.
I have no nausea but everything I eat goes right through me..
I tentatively tried a banana. BAD idea. Then some veg soup. WORSE idea. I've been sipping on coconut water but I am starving.
Normally in this situation I would have some dry toast, since that's out any suggestions for what dry food I could eat that would provide sufficent calories but settle my tummy?
Bone broth i.e. chicken soup. Use any leftover bones you have (beef bones will add a lot of good fat), and boil them for a long time with some sea salt. Add some ginger to calm your stomach even more. You can add some veggies too, but if you're having issues with solid food, don't eat the veggies. The idea is just to extract the minerals and nutrients. Keep drinking this stuff until you feel better.
This seems counter-intuitive.. but since going paleo I've found that canned fish (tuna, salmon or sardines) is actually comforting to the stomach when it's feeling a bit off. I find myself reaching for a can in the same situations I would have looked for crackers or toast before.
