What’s your favorite thing to eat on your puréed diet?



Recommended Posts

Hello! I’m new to BariatricPal! I’m 19 years old and I’m one week post-op from my gastric sleeve.

I’m on my full liquids for another 2 weeks then I can start my puréed diet!

I’m actually really excited for it cause I can eat real food with flavor.

Some people suggest baby food (not the meat but like sweet potato’s, carrots or peas)

As weird as it sounds I’m so excited to eat Hummus and mashed potatoes!

My dietitian said anything can be puréed if you try hard enough but make good choices.

What’s your favorite thing to eat on your puréed diet?

I just finished purees and am on soft food now. My favorite thing, both for taste and ease of eating, was and still is cottage cheese. I always loved cottage cheese and I found that it went down so easily, that it remains a favorite. Also, I loved the pea Soup I made from scratch.

I love cottage cheese also. Now I am a sweet person, I take my cottage cheese and add a little sugar-free strawberry jelly yum yum!!! Taste almost like a strawberry cheesecake.

Oh no! Don't sweeten my cottage cheese...It's savory all the way for me...in fact, if I could (but I'm too early for it) my preferred way to eat it is with onion and caraway seed...like my mom used to make!

Now, that strawberry jelly trick would work well with ricotta cheese in my book...that cheese I like sweetened up!

I’m not big on cottage cheese but the Greek yogurt with fruit or goodies you dump in are really good!

Yes, but I couldn't have most of the fruit and goodies in the puree stage!

Puréed butternut squash, really any winter squash is good. I’m currently eating some pumpkin Soup that is Devine. You can also eat really well mashed avocado.

I like a variation of Eggface's Ricotta Bake using cottage cheese. I'm not in the post op phase yet, just a freak who's "practicing" living the dream so that I'm ready to play when the coach puts me in the game. :D ha! I love CC sweet or savory. The Daisy 2% Small Curd is ridiculously delish and doesn't have hidden ingredients.

@cjsunshine Would you share your split pea Soup recipe please? kthnx!

        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!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
