I couldn't help but notice, as I was sitting in the waiting room of the outpatient surgery wing of Hardin Memorial Hospital, the premium cuisine that was lying there on the table, for all patients and visitors to partake of for breakfast: Sugar-drenched, ultra-refined, empty-carb, blood-glucose-raising DONUTS! In a hospital! Should I be surprised? Probably not. But I can't help but get mad.
This is why I'm mad:
In times when someone's body needs ALL the strength they can get, they are given the worst non-food creations possible.
And the food the patients get during their stay is bad. I watched this happen this summer...Deep fried foods, sugary drinks, refined white flour products, and on and on. Sure, they may throw in a side of (more than likely genetically-modified) corn or green beans to try and "justify" the nutritionally inferior main course. Not to mention that they pass out soft drinks in the Emergency Room.
Now, don't get me wrong...I have alot of respect for the medical industry. Without them, my brother wouldn't be alive (appendix surgery a few years back.) But when it comes to basic nutrition, they have really dropped the ball.
