An extra packet isn't the equivalent of your veggies, the veggies aren't just there for calories (actually MOST of your calories come from your packets and meat protein). You also need the fiber and the nutrients in them.
If you are dealing with a stomach bug and feeling stomach sick, try picking up some vegetable broth at the store - you won't get the fiber but at least you'll get SOME of the good stuff from the veggies. The liquid will be good for you as well to keep you from getting dehydrated. A stomach issue should pass soon! Hope you feel better!
