Surgery coming up.....vegetarian soft foods?



Recommended Posts

Hi, my surgery is July 20th! Of course I'm on the liquid pre-op diet now and will be on liquid right after surgery. But what vegetarian soft foods did those that are post eat?

I'm trying to plan ahead. I don't want to purée foods-that totally grosses me out. I would mash legumes but that's about it and I'm not sure if that's even ok?

Wondering if anyone has a go to list of soft high Protein foods they could share?

I think cottage cheese, sugar free pudding and Jello, ricotta cheese, and yogurt are probably going to be your go-to foods in the puree phase. I ate fat-free refried Beans a lot during that phase. I get the texture grossness about pureeing but you have to wait to eat solids for a reason. Hope you find what you're looking for! Definitely ask your nutritionist for suggestions, as he/she would know the most about it.

I had a very hard time with the puréed stage. I could not tolerate meat or eggs right out of the gate.

I leveraged Protein shakes, cottage cheese, Greek yogurt, cream of wheat with Protein powder and milk. I literally lived on that for a month before they let me move on the the soft food stage. Then for the first 6 weeks of that I really stuck to fish like white fish, salmon and tuna. Now I can eat all meats but still cannot do eggs.< /p>

I can only eat a couple of ounces of meat at one sitting so I still drink 1 Protein shake a day that has 30grams of Protein and I always have 1 Greek yogurt.

Soft/silken tofu might be nice.
