I know a lot of people send cookies/baked items, candy, etc., but my SO is really interested in staying healthy over there (of course, I did send him a huge amount of stuff for valentine's day and I know he and the guys enjoyed it, but I'm trying to limit the "junk"). I feel so bad for him when he describes the food at his location. Usually he's been pretty lucky in that department, but this time it's bad. He's a muscular, solid 280lb guy and yesterday he told me he ate a lettuce/cabbage mix with dressing and a side of white rice bc the other stuff was so repulsive (and he, like me, is VERY open to different foods and has a great appetite). He's also been sleeping really poorly- there is constant noise where he is with planes taking off super close, a squaky A/C unit, people talking outside his quarters (he works nights) and of course, the really uncomfortable bedding. I thought today about sending him something to help- noise machine (but that probably won't work since it would have to be really loud), ear plugs?? I don't know...thoughts??
As for the food, he and his roomie were excited when his GF sent them a bottle of salad dressing and he said maybe some PB and J (that is really sad, considering that's not what he would normally eat- I know he's desperate). I suggested I will find him some good jam and almond honey butter to keep it healthier (Whole Foods- he'd choke at the cost,
