Nourishment Notes

Rice

Bland and gentle on the stomach, rice is a key component of the BRAT diet (bananas, rice, applesauce, and toast) for nausea and vomiting.

Ginger

Ginger is a great spice to use in recipes not only for its flavor, but it also may help reduce inflammation and minimize stomach pain or nausea.

Fatigue Buster

  • Opt for Pre-Juiced

    Purchase pre-squeezed lemon juice.

  • Use a Food Chopper

    Use a mini food chopper to chop onion into very fine pieces instead of grating.
