There are some on this site, plenty on Pinterest, and you can google and find sites such as this: https://www.bariatriccookery.com/

I just came across a recipe for egg-drop Soup that sounds easy. Can't wait to try it--well, after the cauliflower-garlic soup I bought ingredients for today . . . I like making soup.

This is one of my staple diet foods now. It's chicken salad so not exactly anything new, but adding in things like almonds (or walnuts) and dried cranberries give it a nice twist. I used to do a half & half mix of Greek Yogurt and light mayo (1 cup of each) but now go with the yogurt alone. Yields about six 1-cup servings. Truth be told most days I can only manage about 3/4 of a cup on it's own, or I do 1/2 a cup and mix in with my small salad.

If you want a lower carb version just drop the cranberries and that takes out around 11g of carbs per serving.

Edit: Just to clarify I cut the almonds, cranberries, and celery up into really small pieces and mix in with everything else.

Sounds great,
Do you eat it alone or with lettuce or something else?

Thanks Tealael I have left over dried cranberries and walnuts from my Christmas basket. Think I'll try it before I have to go on liquid diet. Since I don't have a firm scheduling date I could float free but with my gastritis I still have to eat small quantities at a time.

All sorts of ways. Typically with a little bit of lettuce. Sometimes with a couple of saltines if I need a "crunchy" fix. If I need a quick meal to go I'll put it in a small wheat tortilla, but if I do that I can only manage 1/2 cup of chicken salad and usually end up tossing part of the leftover tortilla. I don't make it a habit of using the tortillas but if I'm caught off guard and need to leave and am due to eat it serves it's purpose.

      I had my surgery just about a month ago. I generally feel very good. It takes some time to learn how to eat again. Small meals, more often. Eat slow. Eat little. Don't force yourself. If you eat too fast, or are not careful, or you don't think while you eat, you can get in trouble (you'll get reflux, feel like throwing up, but just walk around for a few minutes and it will go away as you digest.)
      The first few days after the surgery were tough. Hard to eat, hard to drink. Now it's a lot better. It took probably a week to get to a satisfactory level and feel normal. Just bear with it because it gets a lot better.
      If I can give a suggestion to those of you who are going to go through the surgery, is one: be very rested. I made the mistake to sleep only 3-4 hours the night before the surgery, and after the surgery I felt awful. In addition, the hospital did not have a room for me, and I spent overnight in the recovery room. That did not help. I had to stay at the hospital a second night because of that. Make sure you are rested and you have a room. You need to rest after surgery.
      Since the surgery, I have lost an average of 1 lb per day. Fantastic! I have not exercised a lot yet, but I started doing something the past couple of weeks. I am sure as I shed more weight I will start working out more seriously, or at least move. Just walking every day for half hour would be enough for the first few months.
      Good luck to you all. Believe in it! I can see why everyone told me that it would change my life. I can already see it as I am wearing 2-size smaller jeans today.

      I ALMOST sneezed today - first time post-op. It was coming but as I flailed around to get a pillow to splint my belly, I lost it.  Usually I hate that feeling but in this case I'm okay with it. I'm not pain-free yet so I would love to avoid a sneeze until then if I can!

        Did they send you home with the Incentive Spirometer? Are you using it every hour? Tip for after laparoscopic surgery is to do deep breathing exercises to help expel the gas from your abdomen. Take a long slow deep breath in, as long as you can then hold it, while holding press down into it slightly (like doing a small crunch) the object is to stretch a little and to slightly increase the pressure in your abdomen to force the gases into the bloodstream for processing. Helps out quite a bit.

      2. Karen Kenney

        you may still have gas from surgery if you are not walking, please walk as much as you can even if it's just around the block. Walking, sweating. peeing, breathing, farting, all will expel the gas from your body. Use your spirometer too. Good luck home you feel better soon!
