I've been admitted to the hospital this week for a potentially long stay and the food situation has got to be fixed! The cafeteria menu the hospital serves is not the healthy, fresh food I'd make at home, and as I'm pregnant I want to keep eating well. I have a fridge in my room, and can ask a nurse to microwave something if I want, though it's simplest to just be able to grab and go. Can anyone recommend some healthy meal staples that my husband or friends could make and bring me to stock my fridge? Minimal preparation when I need to eat is the key. I love cooking, and not being able to "choose" my own meals and ingredients is driving me nuts. Thanks!
