I am looking for a few simple puréed recipes. I just made the Shelly’s Ricotta bake and found a puréed chicken salad. I think I will probably be okay with eggs ricotta cheese and the two recipes. However, it is always nice to have options. Any suggestions are appreciated. I am attaching the recipes I previously discussed.

Good! I've lost 30 lbs with my 1 week pre-op diet. I'm on puree and life is so much better. My family had steak sandwhichs and I had just some of the meat and vegetables. I chewed and chewed instead of blending. It stayed down. Woo hoo! Measuring 1/2 cup of food.

I'm making green tacos tomorrow. My son-in-law is Mexican, so they eat a lot of the food. Not sure if you like green sauce? It's made with chicken.

Also, chili is a good high Protein choice and it blends good.

You boil like 2lbs of chicken, shred it. In a few pan you saute some onions and a brick of cream cheese and half a can of the green sauce. It will all melt up, then you add shredded chicken. Season. We roll up in tacos and put cojita cheese on top and bake. The recipe may be on the back of the can. We've been making it for a number of years. I will only blend some of the filing. It's very creamy. You can use lowfat cream cheese.

You are still eating very little. So have a little fun for a meal or two.

1. Protein powder
2. Any microwave meal you like

Blend it.

      I broke 150 lbs today!!!!
      150 lbs has been my wall for the past 15 years.  I've dieted down to the low 150s 3 times only to regain what I lost and more. 
      I am now officially 149.7 lbs as of this morning.  Yay me!

      Tomorrow is surgery day...  I'm not sure if I'm nervous, anxious, excited or a little bit of all three.  I honestly thought I would be freaking out at this point, but I'm much calmer than that.  I suppose the last 7 months of preparation both physically and mentally has brought me some peace.  I say this now, but when I try to sleep tonight, that may be a different story.  
      I appreciate everything I've read on this forum that has helped me to prepare as much as possible.  I know this part of my journey may not be the same as someone else's, but having a good frame of reference helps a ton. 
      The most exciting and most difficult part of the journey begins tomorrow...

      Hey ya'll. SO. I got down to 199 for the weigh in but gained it all back right after. I have to do another month of weight management. They switched out the nutritionists at the last second and she said she doesn't pass anyone unless they have 5 veggies a week. I'm starting metformin and Farxiga today. Doc found a little bit of blood in my urine but wasn't too concerned. I'm trying not to freak myself out either. Depression is a little more intense than usual. I'm all over the damn place.
