Keep going with broths and plain toast.  Plus plenty of other fluids.  Other easily digested foods when you're ready.... steamed fish, stewed fruit, yoghurt, well-cooked vegetables... 

Stick with BRAT (bananas, rice, applesauce, toast).... you don't want to upset your digestion and they're very easy on the stomach. Soup and toast is a great way to go. Your body will let you know when it's ready for more demanding food but it won't be for a day or so.
