EarthSave is pleased to document a breakthrough in patient food-service by Baptist Hospital’s Chef Stan Hodes, in consultation with Mary Shaw, R.D. and EarthSave Vegan Outreach Educator, Chef Estela WindWalker Delgado.
EarthSaver in-patients, including cardiology and gastroenterology cases, have long sought healthy, vegan, plant-based meals from Baptist’s Food Service in vain. Those with high sensitivities to GMO’s, irradiation, pesticides, chemical additives, gluten, etc., and followers of T. Colin Campbell’s WFPB (‘Whole Food Plant-based’) Culinary Philosophy or Hippocrates’ famous stratagem “Let food be thy medicine” simply postponed their expectation of complete healing until post-discharge.
This meal, delivered to an ordinary patient, contains: organic/non-GMO tofu, hummus with No Added Oil, a mix of colorful veggie slices not overcooked… and earns our Certificate of Appreciation.
Highly-ranked Baptist Hospital just improved their rating, at least in our opinion. For additional improvements EarthSave recommends our compact Food 4 Life - Healthy Vegan Guidelines.
