One of the legendary side effects of chemotherapy is… nausea. Oh, that glorious upheaval and queasiness that leaves you feeling crummy, woozy, uncomfortable, and all-around gross.
They say that when you’re nauseous, the best thing to do is the exact opposite of what you feel like doing: eat. Of course, most food is completely unappealing while nauseous because of taste, smell, texture, whatever. But ya gotta eat. So… soda crackers (or saltines, if you’re so inclined) to the rescue.
Mmm. Washed down with a nice glass of ginger ale, soda crackers are not only the lunch of champions, but also breakfast, snack and supper. Thankfully, this phase doesn’t last too long – 24-36 hours and then back to “normal.”
