A grilled cheese is nice once in awhile, but you shouldn't have to eat that, PB&J and chips forever. It seems like it would be easy to make a meal plan and split it so the menu is basically the same but with vegetarian options. Vegetarians need and want protein, too.I tend to exaggate. On the menu everything had meat accept for the potato chips. I could have asked for a salad, grilled cheese or a peanut butter & jelly sandwich. They rarely have the ingredients for a salad anymore because of the shortages, and a grilled cheese is ok but they are greasy and are high in calories. I don't want one every day.
Everyone complains about the food here. I've compained to the director several times buy mostly nothing changes. Sometimes they have a good vegetarian meal but mostly it's just carbs.
One of my favorite salads is pretty shortage friendly, it involves no lettuce. I just chop up whatever non-starchy vegetables I have on hand, add some onion if I have some, some cheese, olives, etc., some oil and dressing and that's that. It's really easy and an excellent way to use up leftovers before they go bad, which fills my stomach and saves money. Despite shortages, they should be able to be creative if they work in a kitchen.
