I second this. I've worked in hospitals for the last ten years and there is ALWAYS a microwave available.
I also love this thread cause hospital food is horribad...
I can get a breakfast equal to 6-8 scrambled eggs and 4 pieces of bacon for 2 bucks and lunch costs 3. I said something to the director in jest one day about organic and she said, "Everything I serve is organic."
I'm a huge proponent of eating for health and have seen improvements in my own since changing my food sources, so what you are doing for your friend is a great thing. I skipped over a few pages of this thread, so if I repeat ideas, I apologize.
I like the lentil soup idea, recently became a fan of them. Not sure what his tastes are, but sauerkraut is amazing on many levels. It's all about feeding the right internal bacteria so they can help fix you up. Also, not sure of the reasons, and won't pry, but, protein, protein, protein. Best thing when you need to heal up. Hard boiled eggs are easy and portable. Shakes are good as well, I personally try to avoid the sugary ones. The shakes the normally have at hospitals are loaded with sugar.
I completely agree with him not wanting to eat the same things over and over. I'm in the same boat with an experiment I'm doing right now with slow carb. I wish you both the best of luck and a speedy recovery.
