I’m 4 days post op and I’m allowed to have puréed foods as long as I purée them to a liquid. (Straw doesn’t stand up in it) so far the only thing I have tried is refried Beans, gatorade G2, Premier Protein and Water. Please give me Protein ideas!!!! I’m already sick of my Protein Shakes.

Protien powders in pureed Soup. Yogurt. Cottage cheese. oatmeal thinned with milk.

Best to check with your program and see what they recommend as each program is different.

Pureed foods on day four seems a bit soon to me, but again, each program is different.

Best wishes!

My surgeon gave out a small handbook on post OP diet and most helpful thing in it was a recipe for high Protein hot chocolate.

Using Protein Powder make a smooth paste with cold Water add chocolate packet and Stur it into the paste, lastly add hot but not boiling water to the mix and viola!

I was able to make mine 20 grams of protein in 10 oz.

Also premier caramel shake added to decaffeinated coffee as creamer is luxurious...

I drink half a premiere caramel shake in my coffee almost daily.

I did lentil soup puréed, vegetable beef soup puréed, chicken salad (lots of FF mayo dressing and keep most of the Water from canned chicken), scrambled eggs (may not meet your definition) and Protein Shakes. You can try freezing a Protein Shake for something different too. Puréed Tuna is horrible (tastes like sand). Unfortunately it's tough to get Protein at that stage without shakes. One thing you may want to try if they try to do low carb is Powerade zero VS G2, G2 has some carbs in it and to me they taste about the same.

Good luck!

Try Protein20 its very low in calories and it doesn't taste bad. They have many different flavors.

My doctors team said to use shakes, products that are Protein isolate rather than protein concentrate. Apparently isolate is easier digested. Premier Protein shakes is concentrate not isolate. Premier does have a protein Water though that is isolate. I found the cheapest place to by Protein2o is Walmart were you can get a 12 pack for around $17.

Dal is an Indian dish that can be anywhere from smooth like a soup to a thick puree, It is made from split peas or lentils but I think chickpeas can also be used.
Dal is a staple in india because most indians are vegetarian and lentils are high in Protein.

      So, getting finances in order, I managed to sell my 2016 Toyota Avalon. It was a beautiful car, of which surprisingly, I’m doing fine without and I actually don’t miss it; and also of which resulted in having a one-vehicle household, which resulted in me HAVING to walk 2.2 miles everyday 5x a week to get my daughter to school. I’m actually quite glad, I’m feeling better/stronger again, and I dropped almost $20,000 of debt. WIN-WIN!

        Awesome sauce!!!

      2. FluffyChix

        Yay!!! That's incredible on so many levels! Yay you! (You wouldn't have been able to do it if you didn't have the surgery and re-birth!"

        Maybe you should look at practicing your nutrition stuff from home?

        Car debt is the bane of my existence. Wont do it. And I love Toyota...I drive (and LOVE) my 2015 Camry...so I know how hard that was. Absolutely awesome you're getting the walking in, instead. Love that so much! Also teaches good habits to the kiddo....which is brilliant.

        Speaking of kiddo and cars..I've spent the last three months combing the web for a used car for my daughter. She has a summer job lined up here and needs a car to get to various labs and sample sites....and I won't let her go into more debt. (she has minimal student loans and will graduate next year with her microbiology degree)

        I found her a 2008 Malibu from Tennessee, clean inside and out...with just barely 100K on it...and I'm feeling incredibly accomplished. $3000, we paid cash :) CarFax is clean, mechanic said it was in great shape and she should get a few years out of it yet. Very common car with cheap parts if repairs are needed in the future. Previous owner did a valve job and replaced timing chain, and all maintenance was done at dealership. Brand new tires and brakes.

        It's parked in our driveway as we speak. Runs and sounds like brand new.

        I can't wait to see her face:)

      Tonight's experiment: wonton wrapper lasagna (made with ground turkey and a Greek yogurt cream cheese/mozzarella/cheddar/spices mix instead of ricotta, which I don't like) and tacos (made with taco meat pilfered from my sister's supper). In the oven now!

        Haven't tried the taco ones yet, but the lasagna ones are DELICIOUS!

      2. Charity G

        I'll have to try these! What's the carb count like for the wontons? After surgery, what guidelines did your surgeon and/or nutritionist give you regarding calories and carbs?

      3. istytehcrawk

        The wonton wrappers are 31 carbs (1 fiber and 1 sugar) for eight wrappers; each lasagna/taco uses two wrappers. At my one-month follow-up, my surgeon said just to worry about protein/liquids, not the other macros, and she said to work toward 1,000-1,200 calories per day, but that it'd take a while to get there (I'm averaging 500-700 per day currently, with at least 60 carbs).

      4. FluffyChix

        How were they? They look great!

      5. istytehcrawk

        Haven't tried the taco ones yet, but the lasagna ones are AMAZING. Like, as good as or better than regular lasagna.

      My jeans were literally starting to fall off me, so I caved today and bought a pair of 26/28s to hold me over until capri weather hits, hopefully in the next few weeks.
      The important part, though, is that I bought them at WALMART! I haven't been able to buy pants there in YEARS because they didn't go to my size. Unfortunately, I still had to pay $17 (so much better than the $60ish at Catherine's though), because the 26s that were on clearance for $9 were still too small to be comfortable. SOON, though!

        I almost caved today at Walmart for some pants, but I just couldn’t do it. I keep thinking how many times will I actually wear them before I have to go down a size. Technically I could have gotten some for about the last two months, cause I have been staying about the same. But since my workouts were upped again, I figured to just keep my money and wear the leggings (I have been buying these in smaller sizes...they’re cheap at walmart!) I’ve been wearing for the past year! So, good for you! Enjoy your pants and yay...they’re much cheaper atwalmart and yes, they’re just as good too, IMO. 😊

      2. istytehcrawk

        I probably would've held off with buying them, but mine were so baggy they looked awful, and I'm a reporter so I have to look at least semi-presentable and the 28s just didn't fit that bill anymore -- after only about a month!

      Just made Eggface's mini chocolate protein muffins, minus the chocolate topping. They're pretty tasty, albeit a little bit dry; I think when I reheat them I'll spray them with a tiny bit of butter spray to help with that. Not bad, considering they help satisfy the sweet tooth for roughly 30 calories and 2 grams of protein (my mix made 14 instead of the 12 hers did).
