Puréed stage need ideas!



Recommended Posts

I’m in the pureed stage now for a month and I’m already bored with my food choices. I am rotating between eggs cottage cheese and pudding. I tried mashed potatoes and refried Beans too. I need some help with ideas, so I won’t get bored since I have to do this for a month ugh!

PS I don’t cook :)~

Have you tried some creamy Soups, maybe some chicken or tuna salad?

What are some good canned creamy Soups? Can I have broccoli and cheddar? I’m just worried about the little pieces of broccoli in it. I did try tuna with light mayo but wasn’t a fan of it by itself and seemed too dense for the purred stage. I had kfc mashed potatoes 2 days in a row and was fine but then the third time I had it I had diarrhea right after so now I’m scared to eat it again but that was my fav :(

My favorite is Butternut Soup from Campbell's YES soup line.

Try making some chicken salad, you can use the canned chicken or maybe ground up some rotisserie. Mix it with some light mayo or greek yogurt, seasonings. Maybe try a white bean chili. Can we mix some light alfredo sauce in chicken broth to make it taste a better, or is that a no? I am still pre-op, but dreading this process, so trying to think it through with you. I actually have a few Soup recipes the dietician gave me, but i haven't made any of them yet. Can you have lentils? Black eyed peas are in season and are delicious when they are fresh. I would think broccoli cheese would be good as long as you shred the broccoli in a processor first. Please share if you come up with any favorites for this stage. Good Luck

I had kfc mashed potatoes twice and was fine then third time gave me diarrhea so I’m scared to have them again. Maybe it was to much richness

I went straight from liquid to soft foods but I am pretty sure that creamed Soups are supposed to be strained before eating unless you put everything in a food processor before eating.

I don’t think that I would try broccoli this early out but best to check with your nutritionist.

I put a teaspoon of salsa with an egg. I also scrambled an egg with a little refried Beans.

Ricotta with canned or shredded chicken or tuna.

If you have an instant pot there are recipes for lentil taco filling which is just mashed lentils, seasoning and broth.

Get a decent blender, and any Soup becomes pureed soup. I did cream of mushroom, cream of chicken, cream of potato, etc., but sent it through a blender before heating it up.

I also got creative, based on my cravings. When my kids wanted pizza, I made myself "pizza soup" (was making home made pizza, so I reappropriated some of the Italian sausage + pepperoni + mushroom, heated it up in a skillet with a creamy Tomato Soup with basil, to get some of the flavors into it, then strained it, and ate the non-solids. Turned out surprisingly good.

Get a GOOD blender, and anything becomes pureed soup if you try hard enough ;)

When my sis was here, she ordered Mexican food, and I was craving the same, so I wound up making my own "soup" out of part of an order of Carne Asada. Carne Asada + Refried Beans + Salsa + Guac + Beef broth. Ok, so it came out more like Carne Asada pudding in consistency, but the taste was spot on, and it took care of that craving without causing me damage, so I chalk it up as a win.

This was probably not my wisest decision overall (I was considering consistency, but not really content), but it goes to show that if you're burnt out on your options, you can always create new options.

There is a YouTube channel called "timetoshrink" that has some really good recipes. Ricotta Bake, pureed Spinach and Artichoke dip, Pureed Egg salad, Sweet Potato Puree, Buffalo chicken Dip Puree, Broccoli cheese Soup Puree, Refried Beans, Cottage Cheese, and Mashed Potatoes thinned out with broth or low sodium gravy.

Here's a few recommendations from my nutritionist after my sleeve. I pureed the dinners. I could only take 3 bites anyway and was full. Good luck. 20190615_203416.jpeg 20190615_203421.jpeg 20190615_203350.jpeg

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY!
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      2. Krestel

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
