Phase 3/soft food



Recommended Posts

I am heading to 3 week post op for gastric sleeve. I am unfortunately very texture sensitive with food so makes this phase difficult and scary. One food i cannot tolerate is eggs. Any suggestions for alternative soft Breakfast ideas, or any other meals for picky eaters???

Yogurt? Tuna, pureed. chili, cottage cheese or ricotta. There is nothing wrong with having a lunch meal for Breakfast.

I liked oatmeal thinned with unsweetened applesauce for breakfast.

Also, per my team - a lot of people really dislike the textures of the soft food phase, so if you'd rather stay for an extra week or so on full liquids, that won't hurt anything. Or just do one soft meal a day. You can stay with a shake or yogurt for breakfast if that's what you're doing already.

Baked Ricotta with Marinara

This is the one that everyone RAVES about!

8 oz of ricotta cheese

½ cup grated Parmesan

1 large egg, beaten

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

Salt & pepper to taste

½ cup marinara sauce

½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Mix ricotta cheese, parmesan, beaten egg, seasonings together and place in a oven proof dish. Pour marinara on top and top with mozzarella cheese. Bake it in the oven @ 450 for about 20-25 minutes (best) or nuke it till hot and bubbly.

Can you do the liquid egg whites. I found I tolerate them better than eggs. I add a little salsa or homemade pesto or just even a little cottage cheese and it goes down well.

Will you try tofu? It takes on whatever flavor you put in it.

I'm not entirely sure either of us will be able to eat a full packet, at this point, and it's going to be SUPER important to make sure the oats get cooked all the way before eating it, but something I've always liked when I've been on low-carb plans in the past are these Protein oatmeals: https://store.bariatricpal.com/collections/breakfast/products/bariatricpal-hot-protein-breakfast-apple-cinnamon-oatmeal

(Full disclosure: I didn't buy this exact brand; nor did I buy it here. I got the ProtiDiet brand and really liked it. But I imagine BP's is similar, and I'll probably try it when I run out of the ProtiDiet ones. Also, the apple cinnamon flavor is better if you add some additional cinnamon and ginger.)

I noticed I had a box in my pantry today, so I'm probably going to give this a try for tomorrow's breakfast.

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.
