Does Vegetable Broth count as a clear liquid?



Recommended Posts

I am 5 days post op and feel pretty darn good. I've been living on chicken broth with a bit of hot sauce added, diluted apple juice, and jell-o. I would love to have some warm vegetable broth but it's not technically 'clear'. However it is the same thinness and consistency as the chicken broth.

I only have a few more days of this phase so it's no biggie if i can't sip the veggie broth...but it sounds really wonderful right now.

I have a call in to my nut but am really curious as to what other's have sipped on in the clear liquid phase.

I'm pretty sure veggie broth is fine.

So are chicken and beef broth. If you can see through it, it is a clear liquid!

If your unsure you can always pour it through a strainer.

Absolutley. Just watch the salt. I felt like a salt lick after 2 days on broth.< /p>

make your own. add whatever vegetable you want to your liquid and cook away. strain the vegetables and drink to your hearts desire. I loved vegetable stock or broth cooked this way.

I usually do have freezer bags full of chicken, beef, and vegetable broth. But I fell way behind the ball in getting that stuff ready for post-surgery.

I bought some low-sodium organic vegetable broth and it is just what I needed! I measure out 4 oz of Water, chicken broth, diluted apple juice, and now veggie broth in these tiny little Tupperware's in the morning and then get busy cycling through them all day long. Adding the vegetable broth has made getting in more fluids today SO much better.

Thanks all!

Yes, all the broths qualify. Add some seasoning to it if it's too bland.

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
