If you ever have to go into hospital for any reason, you know it’s not exactly going to be a pleasant experience.
Usually you’re sick, or you’re in pain. And to top it all off, hospital food is just the worst.
Whenever you talk to anybody about hospital food, they’re bound to turn their nose up and stick out their tongue. We know hospitals have to feed hundreds or ever thousands of people every day, but jeez. Does the food really have to be that gross?
Well, you’ve obviously never spoken to anyone from Japan about their hospital food! Because it looks freakin’ AH-MAY-ZING!
A woman who recently gave birth in Japan, has just shared 12 of the meals she was served during her stay in the maternity ward, and the internet is going absolutely insane over them!
To say the food she was given in hospital looks restaurant standard just isn’t doing it any justice, this stuff looks incredible.
We’ve all seen examples of outstanding food presentation in Japan, and it seems like even hospitals that tradition is taken seriously.
And boy does this stuff look healthy!
I guess if you look after your patients and serve them something good to eat, the best gift you can give them is to not see them again for the longest time possible!
Even if I would be just about throwing myself in front of cars on the road to get back in there for more of their amazing food!
Check out this lady’s incredible hospital meal plan, as well as a list of what she was given each day.
If I was her, I would be planning my next child already!
