    I guess they thought you needed to carb up. Hospital food is the worst. I remember the night before my husband had brain surgery and they brought him a turkey sandwich, chips and some orange drink. He was a vegetarian. I felt so bad thinking that might be his last meal.... so went out to find him something better..... lol and the best I could find was cold pizza.

      • After my hysterectomy they let me choose what I wanted. Two orders of bacon and 3 eggs. I had to tell them multiple times that I DID NOT WANT TOAST.
        Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.

        • When I had my first kid, I lost a lot of blood. Instead of just automatically giving me a transfusion, my old school doc ordered a big hunk of beef for my dinner.

          Sadly, he retired before I got pregnant the 2nd time.

            • You may remember the coworker who advised me that potato chips and popcorn would make great "vegetables" for my toddler. I saw her again recently and she actually remembered that conversation. Round 2 went something like this:

              Her: Oh hey so how did it go with vegetables for your kid? Popcorn's always a big hit right?
              Me: Um, I don't consider chips and popcorn to really be _vegetables_. So I got her going with broccoli and carrots and stuff instead.
              Her: So how do you cook them to hide them? Or do you use dip?
              Me: I just cut 'em up and hand them over. Raw. No dip.
              Her: What, even broccoli?!
              Me: Yeah, we told her it's like eating little trees.
              Her: Oh well she'll see through THAT soon enough.
              Me: Uh, well, so anyway, see you around! *run away*

              • My buddy's girlfriend has been constantly griping about putting on 20 lbs or so recently. Since I'm the healthy one (read "have abs") of our group of friends, the other day she asked me if I could put together a nutrition plan for her to lose weight, and get back to her. I said "sure, write this down right now: Eat meat and veggies. Some fruit and nuts. Good fats. Don't eat grains or sugars. Done and done."

                She stood there for a minute and looked confused, then said "...so...no pasta? Or sugar in my Starbucks?"

                "Nope."

                Then she got a look on her face like I had just murdered her yappy little Maltese.

                Hey, don't ask for help if you don't want it.

                  I like that. I have been asked what I am doing to lose the weight and that is a perfect way to explain it.

                    On the plus side you probably looked like some stoic viking age hero to them.

                        perhaps, but every kid I ever saw was a natural dipper..lol WTG mom for un-dipping your kid.

                          True. My fondest memories of vegetables involve lots of hollandaise sauce.

                            Home made hollandaise sauce is not dip but manna from the gods.
                            Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

                              I'm impressed that unlike most people I talk to, she actually rapidly drew the conclusion that grains = pasta. Often I have to say "That means ALL bread and pasta, yes." and then get into how whole-grain grain is still grain...

                              As for the dip, my kid is not deliberately un-dipped. She just hasn't been into it. Actually a couple weeks ago she said she wanted carrots with dip like her friends at school have, so I faked up some primal ranch dressing using sour cream and an unexpectedly non-soy-filled spice packet. She took one look at it, considered using it, and changed her mind.

                              • I love that popcorn and potato chips are vegetables. I think I can stretch that to include chocolate as a vegetable.
