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 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.
