I’ve been very sick lately, and as a result, I have been eating extremely mild foods — been on the clear liquids diet thrice now! The Italian Icee has actually been a great “clear liquid” for me. They’re very mild. Apple Juice was even too much. So I’ve been chowing down on jello, Italian Icees, and root beer popsicles. Interestingly enough, the root beer popsicles have been the mildest clear liquids for me, and very delicious. 🙂
Anyway, every time I think of breaking back into the solids I think of the BRAT diet (bananas, rice, applesauce, toast). Only for some reason in my head it always comes out the BRIT diet. Every time I get to “A” I think it’s “I,” and for some reason just can’t think of what that “I” is supposed to be:
- Italian Icee?
- Ice cream?
- Italian soda?
- Isaac Newton? Wait… That’s not right!
Perhaps it’s BRIT because I want to be British right now? Then the T would definitely stand for tea! Peppermint tea has been great too.
