Recovering from a serious illness – What to eat?
During convalescence, the diet should be nourishing, not stimulating or placing demands on the body. A soft diet with grains, vegetables, beans, and lean protein sources is the ideal and it should be supplemented with probiotics and some extra greens. Avoid milk, red meat, seafood, and spices which are stimulants. It will take time for the body to recover. Recovery will be faster if the body gets the right nourishment.
