There are NO Secrets <ul><li>Everyone here knows what food is healthy </li></ul><ul><li>Everyone here knows what we should be eating </li></ul><ul><li>Everyone here knows what we shouldn’t be eating </li></ul><ul><li>Everyone here knows what we should be feeding our patients (guests) </li></ul>The Reality… Very Few are Doing Anything About it!!!
The Outcome… <ul><li>Most Common Causes of Death, United States, 2001 * </li></ul>
HFWBH IS Doing Something About It <ul><li>West Bloomfield Hospital is Vested in Wellness </li></ul><ul><li>We Have Embraced the Reality, “It’s What We Are Eating That’s Making Us Sick.” Doctor’s Abide By The Standard, </li></ul><ul><li>“ Do No Harm.” </li></ul><ul><li>Our Food Service Department is Committed to Fulfilling the Same Standard </li></ul><ul><li>We Offer Made to Order, Certified Organic Food in Henry’s Café and Patient Food Services </li></ul><ul><li>No Batch Cooking Allows Us to Manipulate Entrees to Satisfy Diet Specific Needs </li></ul>

Simple Substitutes <ul><li>For very sick people, eating well, eating nutrient rich foods is like a lifeline to healing… </li></ul>Compare… A Bowl of Iceberg Lettuce vs. A Spinach & Arugula Salad, which has more than 4 times the Vitamin A content and 3 times the Vitamin C content. Frozen Carrots - Steamed vs. Boiled, which loose up to 70% of their water-soluble vitamins when boiled. Steaming helps to keep most of these vital nutrients intact. Canned Fruit Cocktail vs. Fresh Fruit with peaches and blueberries or raspberries which have 5 times the fiber, and over 3 times the vitamin/mineral/antioxidant content.

Fresh is Best! <ul><li>Things that may be very healthy when prepared fresh can be very high in salt and sugar when processed and packaged (ex: marinara sauce) </li></ul>Fruits: Fresh fruits are a great source of fiber, vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals and antioxidants. However, canned versions typically have a significant amount of sugar added and may lose many of the vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals and antioxidants during the caning process. Vegetables: Fresh vegetables have many of the same nutrients that are also affected by the canning process. Typically, canned vegetables will have added salt as well.
