Some Recipes for people unable to get protein and would like to try something new....



Recommended Posts

Hi, I am post-op RNY 2/7/18 and determined to get my Protein in so I have tried to be creative for Phase 1 of my full-liquid diet. This is just me wanting to share for anyone wanting to try it out. I am not a fan of the Protein Shakes. I have yet to make Decaf with protein premier.

#1- Protein Creamy Jell-O

8oz vanilla Premier Protein shake

8oz Fairlife Milk

4oz Water

2.5 tbsp of plain gelatine

Warm 4oz of water and mix jell-o packs add to the milks and divide into 2oz cups. Let sit in fridge for 1 hour.

Mixture makes 12 x 2oz cups. Each one should total to about 2.9 grams of protein per 2oz cup. They are good. Remember to mix really well in water before adding to cold milk. You don’t want any lumps. I am not the best at typing up recipes so I apologize.

#2 Protein broth

16oz Sams Choice Vegan Protein Broth (9 grams per serving Protein)

4 oz Cream of chicken ( 2 grams per serving Protein)

4 oz Chicken Broth (2 grams per serving Protein)

Heat all in small sauce pot or microwave. I prefer in a sauce pot. Per 2oz portion it is 2.2 grams of protein.

It may not seem like a lot, but Protein adds up and taste better warm or in texture vs liquid all the time. Good luck to everyone. Again, I am just placing down a couple of things I tried today and it seemed to help. Just my experience to yours. Also reminder low sodium and low fat items. Good luck!!!! If anyone else has other recipes, shoot them over. I would love to try new stuff!!

This sounds great! I make it with flavored sf Jello. Cuz you know, better living through chemistry!

I also :780_sparkling_heart: the creamy Protein Soups made not only with the cream of chicken, but also with cream of mushroom, and creamy poblano soups. Be sure to strain them though! Also with Tomato Soup it's a killer, too! I've also added unflavored to V-8, season it a little, then warm it. Tastes a little like Tomato Soup.

I also mix some Protein Powder with sf jello and either cottage cheese and blend it up til smooth, then thin it down, or add Greek yogurt so it's more like a jello salad. Mom used to make that when we were little using either sour cream or cream cheese. It was lovely. You can also use ricotta instead and not have to blend it.

Yum writing down some of this. Yes omg I don’t want to stick to the bland stuff I love flavors and texture. Plus makes each day fun when you wake up and feel chef life haha. Thanks!

You can also us cottage cheese with sugar free strawberry jelly mix well. It kind of taste like a strawberry cheesecake. We also make what my kids call Pony Puck, don't let the name scare you off it is very good. You take a large SF Jello (any favor you like) we use Strawberry. Add SF Fat Free Cool whip and a small container of cottage cheese add mandarin oranges drained mix well. It is so good!!

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
