How And What To Cook When You Are Convalescing

In a previous guide, we talked about how to measure the temperature and, we also made a mention of the famous how much chicken soup to eat during the convalescence period. In this other guide, therefore, we want to devote more attention to everything we need to eat when our body temperature rises and inevitably forces us to spend a few days in bed.

Always in a previous guide, we showed you the enormous benefits of chicken broth since, being rich in proteins, it will promote healing and its broth will relieve irritated throat. In this guide we will examine the topic by illustrating useful recipes and methods for cooking them, starting from the chicken broth!

Chicken broth

Rinse a hen from broth and cut into pieces, distributing it in a pan accompanied by two tablespoons of salt and a little water. Then let it boil for a good half hour. Then pass the stock through a strainer and remove the meat from the bones, grind it well and put it back in the stock. Then put the pan on the fire bringing the stock to the boil. Then add a large carrot, celery, two onions, a tomato, a potato, a handful of parsley, a pinch of pepper and boil another twenty minutes or until the vegetables are not tender.

To make the stock denser, you can add half a handful of rice. Also you can get more information about chicken broth at musikji

Vegetable

puree Cook in a pot of potatoes, sweet potatoes, and broccoli, add a dash of milk, salt and pepper and, once cooked, crush them vigorously.

Burly egg

Use a container slightly larger than the size of the egg, also equipped with a glass lid and suitable for the microwave oven. Season the egg in a variety of ways; you can use, diced bread, onion, bacon, tomato, cheese, and spices; add half a tablespoon of butter, cover and cook in the microwave several times in thirty seconds each, until the albumen has coagulated.

Soup of bread and milk

Cut two slices of bread into cubes and place them all inside a cup, do this, pour over the lukewarm skimmed milk and sprinkle with a little ‘sugar. This meal is excellent for children, especially when they have a reddened throat.

As for other small and useful advice, I can tell you with certainty that during the flu is not the case to gorge, but you must always eat straightforward foods and above all digest quickly, then go ahead with lean ham or bresaola, lean meats, and fish, pasta or rice but little seasoned.

Finally, after describing what to eat, let us briefly discuss what to drink during the convalescence period. Drink lots of water or lots of orange or lemon juices. If it is freezing, even an infusion perhaps sweetened with honey will prove to be a panacea. Obviously, avoid alcoholic drinks or those rich in caffeine.
