1. Soft foods like bananas provide the body with nutrients it needs to replace. Bananas have potassium, which can be depleted when vomiting or having diarrhea. Eating other soft foods such as avocados, porridge, mashed potatoes (cauliflower mash), and peanut butter can help too.
2. Applesauce can help increase your appetite while having upset stomach. It also has the fiber pectin to help with diarrhea. If you do get applesauce, remember moderation and “no sugar added” is the way to go. A fresh version would be to puree an apple and add in some fiber to keep sugars in check.
3. Herbal tea or aromatherapy can help keep the nausea away. Recommended scents include chamomile, lemon, and peppermint. This especially can help with pregnant women.
Secret: There are a few foods out there that help keep nausea at bay. Some food work for some and not for others. It can depend a lot upon how your body handles being nauseous.
