    Pureed diets, period! Patient asks what it is, and the best I can usually come up with is, "Well, there's something brown, something kind of green, something else sort of yellowish..."

    The absolute worst is when you have a patient on a pureed diet and wants to know what 'that gray stuff is'. Or pureed spinach with pureed liver.

    I think the worst meal I have ever seen served was fish sticks w/ pancakes!! UGH!! On the receiving end, I won't eat eggs or peas to this day because of the strong, nauseating smell when you take the plate cover off!!

    I agree with all the "meals" mentioned so far, but don't you think Pureed meat of any type is nasty? It looks like sawdust soup!!! Or, worse yet, like it's already been regurgitated once or twice!!

    At one hospital all six of my patients were sent hot but raw eggs. The first patient I cracked it over the bowl. The rest I exploded in the microwave.

    Another place served a stew with raw unpeeled carrots and potatos. Somehow the meat was cooked.

    I actually have cared for patients who like pureed meat over mashed potatos. They say it is better than gravy. These folks with no teeth like baby food jars of squash too!
