Pureed food recipes?



Recommended Posts

I can't stand the thought of blenderized food. I can Doo the eggs. I love eggs. But is there any good food that is pureed that comports to the post-op diets?

And if I do blenderize food, what would be a good, cheap blender for small portions?

Did your doc actually tell you that you would be eating pureed food? Cuz I didn't find out until after surgery and at my appropriate check-up that I got to bypass the purees and go straight for soft mechanical.

I can't remember where I got it, but I used a Ninja bullet blender, which was great for size and power. I didn't do much in the way of meal preparation--my big move in the pureed department was to puree a can of beef vegetable Soup. But after all the sweet Protein Shakes, I was so happy to eat something that wasn't sweet!

I also tried something with canned chicken, but I thought that was disgusting. Had about half a container of yogurt daily. I did not love the pureed or soft mushy phase at all--I simply put up with all that stuff for the first month. So happy to be eating real food again after that.

A lot of people swear by refried Beans or pureed chili, though, for what it's worth.

My favorite pureed meal was a few meatballs with marinara sauce and a sprinkle of parmesan, mixed up in a blender with a scoop of unflavored Protein Powder. Tasted like the meat sauce left on a plate after eating spaghetti.

Check with your Dr. I didn’t have to do purée and was able to go from liquid to soft .

Well, my program is pretty much universal for the participants, unless someone has a medical condition I suppose. We are two weeks liquid, then they say 5-8 pureed foods, so I guess that is their option for changing it. We actually have a required class we attend, with a slide slow, and we get copies if the slides, goes from hospital Street entrance to procedures, through the 4 food stages post operation. All have a required meeting with surgeon 2 weeks after discharge, when the liquid diet ends.

The spaghetti thing sounds good. I will do that.

I might start the pureed 2 days earlier. I am easily getting my Water and Protein right now. I do fill up quicker than before when drinking some amount of water.

It's funny, but my favorite pureed item was taking a Hormel "Compleats" chicken breast, gravy and mashed potatoes meal and pureeing it in the blender. I felt like I was eating a Thanksgiving dinner even though it was one item, with one color, and one consistency. (I hate puree!) But it was pretty awesome. LOL. It's 10oz with 210 calories, 18 grams of Protein, 4.5 grams fat, and 26 grams of carbs, and 0 sugar.

Now that sounds like pure comfort food. LOL.

What Protein powder do you use?

The “unflavored “ one I tried is not unflavored. Afraid to add.

I use Isopure unflavored powder. “Unflavored” doesn’t really mean “no flavor,” it means “no ADDED flavor” (like fruit or chocolate). The Isopure is undetectable when puréed in foods or mixed with other Protein Shakes for a boost, but I don’t like it in Water or crystal light because it does have a protein-y taste.

      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".
