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.

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
