Try to avoid hospital food
When you spend as much time in the hospital as most people with cystic fibrosis do, you'll be pretty sick of the hospital food. That's why you should find a way to make your own food within the hospital, when possible. Having a miniature Instant Pot pressure cooker allows you to make pre-packaged food in a vacuum-packed bag relatively easily. There are usually either fridges or freezers accessible in the hospital, which is where you can keep the meals. Then, when you want to have it, just use your Instant Pot with relatively no hassle. This way, you can take control of your eating and ensure you're getting the exact calories you need, while it's in the food you like. This can make those trips to the hospital a little less frustrating. It's the little things!
