When I’m sick, I have a hard time cooking (no energy for it) so I resort to takeout or even just bowls of ramen. I never really grew up with chicken soup for colds, just a lot of noodle bowls, so it’s a habit that stuck with me.

One thing I’ve found that makes ramen better is adding some fresh greens (pea shoots are a favorite; cilantro, bean sprouts, spinach, shiitake mushrooms are also good) and pouring in a beaten egg to make a sort of egg-drop soup style. Add more soy sauce (for salt) or sriracha (for spice- it will make your nose clear).

Since my throat really hurts this time, I’ve found smoothies to be a really handy way of getting fresh fruit/veggies. You can find my smoothie recipe here all the way at end of this post– adding greens is optional.
