Recipes for those recovering from the Norovirus

Banana Fresco
Peel one banana and slice in half. Eat one half. If you can manage, eat the other. If not, stare at it dismally.

Cereal from a Box
Pour one half cup cereal into a bowl. Eat at room temperature. *Note: this recipe is for those in advanced recovery only.

Sunshine and Water
Sip a cup of water with two drops of lemon juice. Lay on the floor, preferably in the sun, and mentally beg your stomach to behave.

Simethicone Medley
In between trekking to the bathroom, combine
1 Imodium pill
1 Gas-Ex strip
1tsp Pepto Bismol
You may want to compliment this with Sunshine and Water (see recipe above)

Chocolate Chip cookies
2c flour
1 tsp salt
1tsp baking soda
1/2c sugar
3/4c brown sugar
2 sticks butter, softened
12oz chocolate chips
2 eggs
Combine dry ingredients and add wet ingredients. Drop dough from tablespoons and bake at 375 on ungreased cookie sheet for 20 min or until golden brown.
*Note: you are not allowed to eat this while recovering from Norovirus


  1. I appreciate your great advice. I am recovering from the dreaded Norovirus, and the Sunshine & Water recipe was just the ticket. Great stuff if you need it... :-))

    1. Glad this was appreciated... it was a long and difficult recovery process!
