New foods tried after surgery...



Recommended Posts

I am wondering what unique foods people have found themselves eating after surgery. I had someone offer me okra chips today and I was skeptical to try them but they are actually delicious! What foods are you now eating or have tried that you would not have before surgery?

I like making my own hummus. It's super easy and way better for you than the prepared stuff.

It's super easy. Just toss chickpeas, a bit of olive oil, a bit of lemon juice, some fresh garlic, a pinch of salt and pepper in your food processor or blender and blend until smooth. :)

Cauliflower crust, zucchini tortillas, roasted Brussel sprouts, all kinds of things!

I think I've been limiting myself too much. I am actually bored with my diet right now but these sound delicious.

besides cauliflower and chicken pizza crusts, I have been making dishes with spaghetti squash. Takes the place of Pasta and I don't notice much of a difference!!

I've tried spaghetti squash a number of times. I must be cooking it wrong, because every time it seems to clump together into an unholy mess, especially when I put any sort of sauce in with it. A solid knot of tangled squash that ends up having to be cut with a knife.

I think I do it right: I cut the squash in half, put it in a pan with a small amount of Water and bake it for about 40 mins in the oven, then when you can pierce it with a knife take it out and use a fork to shred the insides into "spaghetti". But the squash seems to clump together.

Any ideas?
