Okay, as some of you probably already know, I'm currently in the hospital getting a treatment of steroids for my MS.  Staying in the hospital is never fun for anybody, but I would say one of the worst reasons is the horrible food.  I simply don't understand why it's so nasty.  Is it because they have to cook for so many people?I understand that recipes can't be complicated to feed the masses, but there are so many simple recipes that are healthy and delicious that I just don't understand why the chef doesn't research and take care of it!  I mean if you glance up at the limited menu above, it's so unappetizing and so unhealthy. More unhealthy and unappealing that it sounds even because of the lack of salt and hidden fattening ingredients. 

Italian Style Spaghetti and Meatballs?  What other style is there?  Seasoned Pork Loin?  No thanks. Beef Tips?  I'll pass on the heart attack. Ham and cheese? Really? Ham and cheese?! 

The worst part is, everything they consider "healthy" is all made with butter or margarine still and has zero salt or any other flavoring.  Mmmm sign me up for a plate of green beans made in the microwave with no seasoning and some margarine please! 

Ugh.  This is always one of the worst parts of being here for me.  They can't accommodate my diet, and if they do it's so bland that it's inedible and I end up having to have people bring me real food so I don't starve.  I'm hopefully going home tonight where I can have some delicious turkey chili to warm me to the core and make my tummy happy! 

Sorry for the ranting post, I just simply don't get it why it's so bad.  I see a connection here with school cafeterias and hospital cafeterias.  We really need an intervention to improve food in these places!  Maybe Whole Foods can sign up?  A girl can dream :)

This is something that I've always wondered, myself.

I mean, it's a HOSPITAL for sobbing out loud! If ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD should have healthy food, it should be the place where you go to become healthy when you are not - and yet, they can't seem to do better than Sysco canned crap heated by microwaves and heatlamps. It's pathetic.

It's like it's not bad enough that you feel like crap. They have to add insult to injury while they're charging you out the ass for it too.

I think I've finally come to terms with the fact that the medical community is filled with people who are ALSO just doing their best to run a business.

The folks who are in charge of food are people who run cafeterias - just like you said! They have to provide food for changing numbers of people, so I'm guessing most of the food isn't fresh. They probably don't know from day to day how many people are going to be there or not, what their dietary restrictions are going to be like, or what - so they probably don't even think about it. They just offer as many options as they can and leave it to the patient to make their own food choices.

Last time I was in the hospital, my family ended up bringing in food because even they realized that after 5 days, there was just no way I could continue to survive off of chicken fingers, soggy green beans, and yogurt with granola. I was there for 12 days total before they diagnosed the seizure disorder, so I was *incredibly* grateful for them bringing in the noms! :)

Hope you're not in the hospital much longer, and that you're feeling better soon!

I totally understand. I had a gastric bypass and had to go to another hospital to recover after a complication.

The food there was horrible. They were even serving me things that I couldn't eat due to my surgery.

I spent the first week on a puree diet and they pureed everything with cream of wheat soup, which I can't eat.

Then when I went to real food breakfast was a greasy sausage and most bypass patients dump on fats... I was so angry. I would have to send it back and ask for a tuna sandwich and peel the bread off and eat just the tuna. The sandwiches were made with low fat mayo. That was my only saving grace.

I think they do it on purpose so we will get better quicker just to be able to go home and eat.

I hope you get to go home soon!

I can relate, I was in the hospital for 2-1/2 weeks in 2008 with the worst attack I ever had; my hubby would bring in "legal" food, but I still had to eat at least 2 meals a day there. Bleh.
I am praying for your speedy recovery, get well soon!!

How can we feel this way and nothing has been done about this? I know it's not only us! Everyone that goes to the hospital complains about the terrible food. Especially those of us that have to go there for an extended stay every once and a while.

I'm going to look into this! We need to raise awareness!

Every year, at this time of the year, I think about changing my eating habits and incorporating more nutritious food into my diet. But with the end of Christmas and the beginning of a new year, my resolution also ends. Your recipe is motivating me to stick to my healthy diet resolution. Cool…you are a genius…
