Food to eat in hospital, postpartum

lissar | Jan 16, 201210:37 AM

So I'm due with twins sometime in the next two to four weeks, and I have to (sob) stay in for 72 hours. I am not eating the hospital food. This is my third birth there and I still have post-traumatic stress from the last time I attempted to eat their cooking.

Our house is close, so some food can be run over, but my husband doesn't cook and will also be home with our two slightly older kids. I'm trying to think of actual meal-type things I could stick in the fridge and eat one-handed (or less than one had- how do you manage twins?), as well as muffins and granola bars. So, portable, one-handed, nutritious. and tastes good. Shelf-stable a plus but not completely necessary, as there is a small kitchenette with fridge. Manageable even when I've had no sleep and am completely hormonal.
