Eggdrop Soup, better than broth.



Recommended Posts

I am over two weeks postop and have been craving eggs. Not something I expected to crave. I found my salvation in eggdrop Soup. Super easy to make and gives the sodium and some Protein needed after surgery. I hope that helps for those getting board of our limited options. Does anyone else have anything yummy to share?

Problem with egg drop Soup (or hot & sour soup which is my preference) is that the thickener is usually a starch. Tapioca, corn, or something like that. By it's very nature starch is all carbohydrate. Corn startch is about 90% simple carbs.

there’s just not enough of it to be a problem in egg drop soup.

OK, I'm puzzled here on day #8 post-sleeve. My program's nutritionist advocated eggdrop Soup for the Stage 2 liquid diet. But what about the eggs? Don't they count as solid? I tried to compromise and sorta ate around most of them, and I must admit tummy is happy despite having gotten some egg. (This is the Chinese take-out variety--we're out of broth here now.)

Egg is usually a soft food not a solid...unless hard boiled, guess.

Those not liking broth, have you tried Better Than Bouillon? It's very good. A can of cooking broth isn't. I also like the clear Soup from the Japanese restaurant.

Where can you find Better than Bouillon, is it universally available? I am not familiar,with the brand.

It is near the cans of broth, Soup bases, Knorr granular bouillon or cubes of bouillon. May do an online search to see where available.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
