Hello all! Tuesday I am 3 weeks out and I can finally move from clear liquids to mushy foods. Can you all give me some of your favorite mushy foods so I can make a list for the grocery store? I walked into the store a few days ago for SF Popsicles and was so overwhelmed. So please help:)!!!

hi stacy

i never did the mushy stage - isn't that the one where you put food like chicken or whatever into the blender for a minute - yeach - couldn't even attempt that, just the thought...yeach

was never good on which stage etc. i "think" soft foods were next - cottage cheese, yogurt, - just wanted to give you a for instance, starting help - hoping someone will jump on the bandwagon and give more and possibly better advice,

good luck

I said I wouldn't blend either but then realized that some things are hard to chew properly. For example, my husband just grilled some filet mignon, medium rare. I took a chunk of it and zapped it through my Ninja. Perfect!

Cottage cheese was a good start for a mushy. White fish was easy on me as was just about all forms of cheese. Also, chili was easy on me- I know a lot of others have a hard time with chop meat but for me I was okay.

I plan on ordering a lot of Miso soup from the Japaneese grocery and adding lots of extra tofu! Protein packed! Also try endamame for a shot of protein and fiber.

Cottage cheese, any cheese really, canned chili if you like it some of them have 0 carbs and up to 25-30g of protein per serving, Subway tuna salad (it's a pureed consistency), really soft baked potatoes (Wendy's), yogurt, pudding, refried beans (I had some from a local Mexican restaurant that were delicious!) I couldnt handle the kind out of a can they were too thick and too nasty when watered down. Happy shopping!

really don't cook much, BTW thats any open invitation for anyone to come to my house in upstate NY and make me a home cooked meal.

Anyways back to subject - i make a mean chili, lots of kidney beans. Don't kidney beans have lots of protein?

I just did my mushy/soft food shopping last night, here are some things I purchased

Soy milk
Almond Milk
yogurt
tons of cheese to melt on things and also the laughing cows to eat, and mozarella sticks
refried beans
clam chowder
creamy low fat soups
corned beef hash
salmon fillets
crab meat
canned tuna/chicken
sauce/broth mixes
sugar free popsicles
protein powder
fat free cream cheese/ricotta cheese/ cottage cheese
all natural peanut butter
ready to heat chicken patties
sugar free pudding
egg white beaters
low calorie gatorades

This is def a lot of stuff, granted I only got like 1 of each, it will probably last me at least 2 weeks if not more.
