Your go to soft food phase recipe



Recommended Posts

I’m currently heading into my 7th week post op and still on soft foods. I have found myself in a major rut. Eating the same thing everyday that’s been easy on my pouch. But I need to branch out. So what’s your favorite soft food meal?

Ok, so on softs/mushies, one of the things I loved was cooking chicken until tender in foil (or picking up Roti chickie and pulling it. Then chopping it very fine) and mixing with canned green Beans, and making the recipe for TG green bean casserole using the fat free cream of mushroom Soup. I would make it very soupy and leave off the onions--I'd just add extra onion powder and extra granulated garlic. Dang! Now I want some of that! :D

I also had pot roast in the freezer that had been cooked to deat, that I minced, ate with very well cooked broccoli or green beans or mashed cauli with extra brown beef gravy from a jar. LOL. Yeah...I ate gravy from the jar. Easy to do when you eat 1/4cup! LOL.

Also, broccoli-cheese Soup, chicken enchilada soup, tuna or chicken salad

Good luck! You can have a lot of variety at this stage!

I made myself a lot of home made Soup and tossed soft stuff in there. chicken broth + some egg, some tiny chicken bits, ham bits, potato, etc. Also some cooked pumpkin.. that was a nice change of pace.

      Going through a lot of personal issues...came to visit my mom to try and figure out what I need to do. I'm really experiencing that head hunger I keep hearing about. In my lowest moments I feel most hungry. My stomach hurts like I'm starving. Trying to get in and see a therapist ASAP. Just really struggling to keep it all together. It's really weird to feel like this and not have food...I feel lost. SOunds so ridiculous. Sorry to be a downer, just been a hell of a day. 😕

      Today I decided  along with grilled salmon I would eat yogurt. Not mixed together but bite for bite. Things are getting weird at Chateau GreenTealael

      Had my one month (really, a day short of 6 weeks) post-op appointment today. Everybody seemed pretty happy with how things are going, and I'm now officially in Phase III (long-term bariatric eating phase), with the caveat that rice and pasta are still not allowed, and no alcohol until at least the three month mark. (Not a problem.) But I'm cleared to have fruits and veggies! 🥦🍎🥗🍊🍇🍓 So exciting! I want an apple so badly. (OK, like, a third of an apple, with peanut butter, because I'm not sure a full apple will fit in my stomach, and eating something without any protein feels wrong.)

      I'm also cleared to exercise, though I've been advised to start slow with weights and to stop if I feel any "tearing" (😨) in my abdomen. Back to the pool with me! (I hurt my foot, so walking is out right now. I hate it. Swimming and starting with weight lifting should do a lot for my mood, though.)

      Scheduled 11/05/2018 for the second time to get a gastric sleeve. woke up from surgery with the nurses telling me. They were unable to do surgery .unable to introduce Laparoscopy when it needed to be. had to abort it. Too dangerous for me. I was so Very Depressed. I'm doing better with the depression. I must believe My Doctor Aborted surgery to Protect me .But I wanted this surgery so bad. Well I'm suppose to see him on 11/16/18 to discuss alternative methods. Hopefully I can Reschedule it for the third time

      5 days Post op Update:
      Well today is 5 days. I feel great! I still have some gas i am dealing with but with each sip comes a burp. Hopefully this part will be done with soon. I started my blood thinners shots this morning as they stopped them day after surgery due to too much drainage. I went back to work yesterday, didnt do much! My boss made me sit in her office all day lol.. but i am back and i am feeling good. I was able to get my liquids in yesterday and had my first BM yesterday, with another following this morning! I think i am doing pretty well for just having surgery. My weight is still up. I had gained almost 14 pounds during surgery due to gas and liquids, and lost 10 of it to date. Have 4 pounds to go before back to surgery date weight!
