Default Stupid Cold!

I've had a cold since Wednesday evening. Sore throat, dizziness, headache, all in all it sucks. Problem is I've been craving comfort foods. I've done well to avoid or modify them, such as a grilled cheese cooked with I can't believe it's not butter light, some soup, tea and coffee (black). But I'm really wanting a bowl of ice cream for dinner. I'm afraid this is going to trigger wanting more junk food, but I feel so crappy and ice cream would feel so good on my throat (the greek yogurt burns a bit).

Right there with you. We're basically subsisting on soup at the moment, and yes, some (no sugar added) ice cream.

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate, and feel better soon!

I just went through the same thing. I had a little ice cream but I found that sucking on crushed ice really made my throat feel better and help me resist the ice cream.

Feel better soon!

thanks for the ideas ladies. I have some ice chips, some tea, and a vanilla pudding here. The ice chips help a lot.
