Food ideas to take to hospital patient! Please help!

Ms Ghost | Aug 7, 2006 06:01 PM

My mother is quite ill and in order to gain strength to fight her disease, she really needs protein. But gads--the stuff they bring her! It looks and smells awful, and often she can't eat it....with good reason! Breakfast is great with scrambled eggs and bacon, but goes downhill after that. Today's lunch choice was chicken fried steak (gasp!) or a fruit & cottage cheese plate.
Here are the challenges to overcome: I live about 40 min. away and usually get there early in the AM and stay all day so keeping stuff hot would be a challenge. Coolers are fine, though. I've been taking turkey wraps made with The Tortilla Factory rosemary & olive oil, and she likes those.
Other challenges: she is lactose intolerant and, at least at the moment, can't tolerate anything acidic at all. A friend suggested egg salad so that could be possible. But PLEASE HELP! Any ideas are welcome as I'm so stressed at the moment I can't think about food/dietary needs also. She's not getting out of the hospital any time soon, and my husband is going to the city tomorrow while I go to the hospital, so give me some 'feedback' to make a list for him to shop.
Thank you so much for ANY help!
