My stomach is still pretty queasy from the nasty viral infection I had last week, so I am still eating lots of bland foods. In particular, I am eating lots of gelatin desserts. For those who might be in the same situation, I offer this brief guide to gelatin desserts.
Be careful of Royal brand gelatin desserts: some flavors include aspartame as a sweetener, in addition to sugar. I discovered that aspartame can (how can I put this politely) further inflame the gastro-intestinal tract, leading to unpleasant consequences.
As for Jell-o brand gelatin desserts, stick with the old tried-and-true flavors. Some of the more exotic flavors, like “Berry Blue” and “Black Cherry,” taste chemical-y. Whereas good old orange Jell-o tastes like Tang orange-flavored drink. Actually, come to think of it, Tang tastes chemical-y too, but at least it tastes like chemicals I’m used to tasting.
I will be glad when I can return to eating normal food.
