Yup, straight up Saltines.
The Mayo Clinic recommends these (and the rest of the foods that follow) because they are bland and easy-to-digest.
Simple, but that’s the point.
Make it dry and white, if you can. Now is not the time for fancy butter or spreads. Nor is it the place for whole-wheat or seeded bread. Fiber is your friend, but not when your stomach needs a rest.
There’s a reason why hospitals serve Jell-O (or whatever the generic hospital equivalent is). Gelatin is an tasty vessel for easily-digestible carbohydrates that can help you put down a foundation of calories for recovery.
More easily digestible carbohydrates here too. Remember: Go easy at first. Try half a banana, pop the other half in the fridge, give it a beat, and then return to the banana as needed.
If you’re figuring out that eating like a toddler can help your stomach feel better, you’re on to something.
Not brown rice. Not wild rice. Not black rice. Not red rice.
What about forbidden rice?
Just stick with white rice, which is very low in stomach-taxing fiber.
Okay now this is more advanced. Unlike the other foods on this list, chicken breast is protein instead of an easily digestible carb. That means that your stomach is going to process it a little differently, a little more slowly than the others.
So if you’ve tried a few other items on this list and things are going okay, maybe it’s time to try a little chicken.
One easy test if you’re ready: If you can look at the accompanying picture of chicken and think that it looks like something you might want to eat, then you can probably eat it without issue.

On National Vietnam War Veterans Day, we recognize the many men and women who served and fought during the difficult conflict, giving them the appreciation they deserve.
It was on March 29, 1973, after nearly two decades of conflict, when the U.S. withdrew military forces from South Vietnam. The Vietnam War was one of the longest wars in U.S. history, spanning several presidents and affecting many generations.
However, those who served in the war haven’t always gotten the support they deserve. Some of them, History noted, were even treated with disrespect and hostility when they returned. Some were spat on, heckled, given the middle finger, or threatened. This despite the horrible experiences and “unspeakable horrors” they lived through in Vietnam.
In 2017, National Vietnam War Veterans Day was established to finally give those who served the honor they deserve. Since then, the day has been celebrated every March 29.
Let’s look at some facts about the Vietnam War, its veterans and the occasion meant to recognize them. Courtesy–National Today, History and National Day Calendar.
Just another work day in South Vietnam.
