My surgeon plan says to stop drinking liquids 15-30 mins before eating, so I stop when I put this in oven to time it right.
If you like smoked oysters at all, this is a nice, rich tasting dish that works nicely for pureed stage.

Protein Shakes were driving me NUTS. I am at the very end of full liquids and beginning to introduce pureed food. However my purees are on the liquidier side because it is what I can handle. You can add less liquid to this recipe if your tummy can handle thicker stuff. I was so wanting something savory. I've been basically living off Premier Protein chocolate shakes and broth based Soups with flavorless Protein added (for awhile this was truly all I could handle otherwise I would feel quite ill) but - now I am trying more things gradually.
Note - this serves probably like 6-8 servings? Maybe more? I haven't measured. I just eat a few spoonfuls and don't over-do it.
🔸4 hard boiled eggs
🔸1.5 tbsp mayo (I used chosen foods - because it's paleo and doesn't have inflammatory oils - I was paleo before surgery and before pre-op even to help manage my PCOS symptoms)
🔸1 stalk celery chopped
🔸A dash of Himalayan Pink Salt
🔸A dash of Onion Salt (I used Trader Joe's brand)
🔸1/4C Pickle Juice (this is the liquidy element that helped me)
🔹 Throw everything into the blender and blend until completely smooth.
🔹 Store and refrigerate. I tend to eat 2 oz servings at a time.
Additional notes - you can probably add more seasoning to this if you're able to tolerate. Since I am so early on I wanted to keep it very simple and easy to digest. I loved loved loved this meal. Hope yours turn out great 👍

Head hunger is my struggle also. I had my first post op appointment with my doctor today. He said I was doing excellent. Only a few more days with liquids. His pep talk helped some. The nutritionist said to buy some canned Soups and drain the chunks to drink the broths. Hopefully this will tide me over until puréed foods.
The doctor also suggested to try to “distract” myself when I felt hungry. Go for a walk. Read. Find a hobby. I’ll give it a shot.
