I think I posted my question to the wrong spot to begin with....Anyway, I am 4 days post op and I am sick of the sweet stuff. I have been told to be on liquids for 3weeks before I go to Phase 2 but this is crazy. Purchased canned Soups are high in sodium and low in Protein. In my after carre papers I can't have black Beans yet, greek yogurt maybe once or twice a week but its the main "dinner" liquids that I'm frustrated with. chicken noodle Soup minus the noodles can only be good for so long. I'm staying away from sugar free products because of the Aspertaime in them and I was as close to clean eating as I could get prior to surgery so I'm having a really hard time coming up with ideas, recipes high in Protein and low in the other stuff....Anyone have any ideas???

Hi, I too am 4 days post op and sick of the sweet stuff. I went to trader joes and purchased 2 different carton soups and mixed both. One is black bean, one is corn/red pepper. They are both velvety smooth consistency so no straining necessary. 4grams protein per serving. It's spiced quite nicely. Highly recommend.

I'm just shy of two weeks out now. My surgery was a little different than the traditional ones, so I'm not sure if this works with the normal diets, but I've found that pureeing silken tofu and adding it to dishes works great. I was really sick of the sweet shakes and I can't have artificial sweeteners, so I needed an alternative. Silken tofu puree has a similar texture to yogurt, but it takes on the flavor of whatever you add it to, and it's a great source of Protein. I like it mixed with creamy Soups (I make potato Soup without the chunks of potato and stir in the tofu). You can also put it in smoothies. I suppose you could even double up and add Protein Powder and tofu to get even more Protein in your diet at once.

If you're allowed cottage cheese, try that mixed with just a tiny bit of fruit puree. I actually bought some babyfood peaches and i put about a teaspoon for every two tablespoons of cottage cheese. I'm lactose intolerant, but the Lactaid brand cottage cheese is great.

i was craving mexican food, so i came up with an alternative to a layer dip that included foods i'm allowed to eat: refried Beans, plain greek yogurt, and a thin layer of pureed guacamole. I like it cold and just eat it by the spoonful, while I used to eat with with chips (and topped with cheese). It satisfied my craving and had protein!

Again, not sure when this is ok with the "normal" surgeries, since these are higher carb, but when you're able, i also suggest thinning oatmeal and grits with extra milk. I'm using about 1.5 times the amount of milk required (lactaid brand), which gives me extra protein and helps it go down more easily.

I looked online for Protein sources. I found Proteinex unflavored Liquid Protein suppliment. I make my own fat free chicken stock and I love chicken Soup so I don't mind eating it every day. I like the idea of the silken tofu so I will try that. I wonder if you put any soup in the blender and strain is that ok to eat? One thing I have been going to when my liquids are down or got the munchies is shaved ice with a concentrated koolaide I make with organic granulated stevia on it. IT IS FABULOUS! I packet koolaide, 1/3 cup stevia in a 12 oz bottle. Crushed ice also works. I am not a chewer of ice so it last a long time just sucking on the flavored ice.
