Meal/Snack Ideas



Recommended Posts

I have not yet had surgery, but I want to just get some good ideas for Snacks and meals that have a lot of Protein, and are vegetarian. What do you all eat for meals, and snacks?

I make my own Seitan. I then use it in various recipes to substitute meat. It has a heap of Protein.

I also eat a lot of Tofu and some commercial veg food like Linda McCartney.

I love legumes, but even six months out I can't eat enough of them to meet my Protein goals.

Tuna salad (and tartare), pimento cheese, hummus (limited oil), chicken liver pate, egg salad. I fell in love with these during puree and soft food stage even though I am no vegetarian.

Dang.....I had a whole list of things but they are not vegetarian!

My favorite snack is something I really never cared much about before surgery. Bacon! I love bacon now. There is nothing better than a piece of baked crisp salty bacon. Mmmmmm......

Maybe nuts, hummus, edamame Beans and edamame Pasta, nut butters ,

"Better than beef" is a fairly decent substitute for ground meat recipes. (Got it at target)

Yogurt, eggs, extra Protein milk, protein bars....lots of tofu. Baked, breaded, soy sauce flavored..

Just a few suggestions to get ya going

Good luck!

Roasted/baked Edamame with nutritional yeast for cheesy taste or garlic and whatever other powder you want, kale chips, hummus and veg. In not thru surgery yet so not to sure what you can have. Good luck!
