    I am a firm believer in healthy food. Not a veggetarian, but close, and I try to eat organic, whole foods whenever possible. I have my fiancee and family sworn to bringing be home made (healthy!) food if I ever end up in the hospital.
    Ah, a man after my own heart. My husband grew up on meat and potatoes, but I am slowly winning him over to beans and rice. When my family is sick, they get nothing but miso soup, then progress to cooked grains. If that stays down, then they can eat. Let your food be your medicine!

    Along the lines of bulk - how hard is it to do legumes and whole grains in bulk? And a whole piece of fruit is a no brainer! Get a good food processor and you can whip up a big salad in no time. And true vegetable broth! Throw the veges in a pot of water, then run through a food processor or blender to mix up fine! It would be much better than the sodium filled artificial chicken broth they send up.
