The Brit Diet Revisited and the New Diet

So this is kind of sad. I had to read my own blog to remember what I've posted about being sick/recovering; when I reread my "BRIT diet" post I realized quite quickly what BRIT really stands for: Broth, Rootbeer popsicles, Italian Icees, and Tea (in particular peppermint tea, my favorite).
