4 Foods That'll Help You Survive the Hospital

Any time spent in a hospital sucks for many reasons, but one largely unmentioned part of the suckage is the food. OMG, guys. Why, in an establishment supposedly dedicated to speedy recovery and optimal health, can patients only find fake syrup, fake peanut butter, fake jelly, white bread and iceberg lettuce? Everything was empty calories, artificial ingredients and minimal nutrition. Awful.

If you find yourself (or a loved one) in a similar hospital-bound situation, do yourself a favor. BYOF. Seriously. Because nothing says “Welcome back to consciousness” like gelatinous gravy on instant mashed potatoes, or white rolls from a package alongside hydrogenated oil-filled peanut butter. *Shudder*

Get the full list of 4 foods to survive the hospital on Eat Well. Party Hard.
