Sick Mommy

My mommy came down with pneumonia last week. I am heading home tomorrow after my finals, and I want to make sure I feed her nutritious food, but I also want it to be beautiful! I am planning on trying maki's stewed vegetables on the front page, though I'm not sure if I'll be able to find all the ingredients (if I can find lotus root or kombu in shoprite I will consider it a Christmas Miracle.) You guys probably know lots about macrobiotic and things like that, so any suggestions on what I can make that will help my mom feel better? I promise to take pictures!
