I’m feeling a little bit under the weather and as much as that sucks I try and look for some silver lining. The only thing that makes being sick not a total bust is naps, tea and spicy food. Now I have to be really sick for a couple of bad things to get in the way of my relationship with food. I usually always can eat and generally my throat doesn’t hurt that bad .
When I’m sick I prefer to eat light since I normally just eat less. And when my taste buds kinda start to dull while I have a sore throat. Then my sense of smells gets weaker because of congestion. I like to add stuff with lots of garlic, something with some heat since I cant taste it anyways. Something raw and fresh since I’m sick and delicious healthy food will help me feel better way sooner than something fried, greasy, or fatty. So I made this two days because I knew the upcoming events of what’s to come with a cold. I just like to be prepared. That’s why pasta, soups, and rice dishes are great do ahead items for inevitable days like today. But for me personally, I eat a lot of pasta while I’m sick. I fully get and understand why people love soup. I hated soup as a kid and only now as adult have I learned to somewhat appreciate it. I just don’t naturally gravitate towards it. You don’t have to be sick to enjoy this pasta! Give it a try and let me know what you think!
