To clarify, I mean because they can’t really taste the food, because they don’t have a sense of smell.
I was going to say chicken soup, as a serious Yiddishe Mamme, but if your goal isn’t to cure the cold, and you can’t taste its flavor, it’s almost a waste of all the work/love that went into it.
“Maror” though, also known as horseradish (not the bottled stuff, we’re talking about a real vegetable here) might actually clear your congestion, and since you claim not to really “taste” the food, you won’t mind the zing…
Now about your teary eyes – it’s just the cold my dear…
Now be glad I’m not your mother.
i agree with mammele about Maror.
garlick should also be good.
and of corse drinking lots of hot tea etc.
Mammele, are you my mother?
when someone has a cold etc. besides all meds and remedies, its important to strengthen the body by just having enough sleep, food and rest.

Cook a Chicken soup with Chicken and Garlic and a little salt and jalapeño. (Like 2-3 jalapeños)
Also taking a long hot / warm shower an help. (10-15 minutes)
