What to Eat When You Have a Stomach Bug

cumin seeds
Though stomach bugs are usually brief, they're very common, and can be very difficult to deal with. When your body isn't feeling well, it's more important to eat well then ever, but it's very difficult to do so when you're suffering from symptoms like nausea and vomiting. Luckily, there are many great foods to eat that will nourish your body and help to fight off your illness. Here is what to eat when you have a stomach bug.

Fennel Tea

Fennel Tea is the perfect thing to drink when you're suffering from an upset stomach. Not only are warm liquids soothing, but fennel has natural anti-nausea properties. It'll also load your body up with nutrients like vitamin C, potassium, and fiber which will help your body recover as quickly as possible.


Easy to digest foods that are are also full of fiber like bananas are the perfect way to fight off a stomach bug. Eating bananas won't irritate your stomach, and the fiber will help flush toxins out of your stomach more quickly. Bananas also have plenty of vitamin B6, vitamin C, and potassium.


Not only is yogurt easy to eat even with a sick stomach- it's also full of healthy bacterias that will work hard to fight off any viruses effecting your body. Look for a yogurt full of probiotics. If you choose a yogurt with fruit, pick a fruit high in fiber like blueberries, peaches, or raspberries.


If you're having trouble keeping foods down, try munching on some papaya. It contains enzymes which will help your body to better digest food. It also gives you a healthy dosage of nutrients like vitamin C, potassium, folate, fiber, and vitamins K and A.

Cumin Seed

Try sprinkling some ground cumin seeds onto a food that's bland and easy to eat, like whole wheat toast or boiled chicken. The cumin seed will work to relieve nausea and will help to stop vomiting, and it also boosts your immunue system. Cumin seeds also contain iron and manganese.

Vegetable Juice

Whether you prefer juiced carrots, cabbage, or leeks, vegetable juice is incredible easy to digest, and is a great way to feed your body plenty of nutrients even when you're having trouble eating. If vegetable juices aren't your speed, try enjoying a nice plain vegetable soup.


Pineapple contains bromelain, an enzyme that will aid your body in digestion. Munching down on this food will help settle your stomach so that you can keep other foods you eat down. Pineapple also is full of vitamin C as well as manganese and fiber.


Rice is yet another easy to digest food that's full of great nutrients. It contains manganese, selenium and magnesium, and has been shown to promote overall health via phytonutrients. Make sure that you choose brown rice and not white rice so that you'll be able to take advantage of all of this.


No natural remedy will soothe your stomach faster than ginger. Though ginger ale and ginger tea are the most popular ways to take ginger when you're sick, pickled ginger is also a great choice. You can even add your ginger to a healthy vegetable soup for some stomach-safe flavor.

I think you're a robot John. No-one in their right mind would spend time to write such a ridiculous and unrelated (not to mention appallingly written) post as that. Only a full-time spammer. In either case - human or android - get yourself a life you tit.

One of the many reasons why natural remedies come so highly rated and recommend is because of all of their benefits. One of those benefits or plus side is ease of finding. Unfortunately, many individuals do not know where to look when looking to find information on a natural remedy. Many are actually surprised when they learn just how easy it is.

Greetings! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform
are you using for this website? I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
