I’m on week two from sleeve surgery. Is it too early to incorporate mashed tofu? I got green light from surgeon yesterday to move from liquids to purée food.

I had sleeve surgery 7/3. I’ve been vegetarian 15 years and vegan off and on. Now on for past year and half.

I love reading about vegans on this forum who have been or are planning to be. You are my tribe! ❤️❤️❤️

I opted for bariatricfusion Multivitamins but I’m going to go back to my plant based Vitamins once I run out. There are a few deficiencies in the plant based multivitamins but I figure it’s because those vitamins/minerals low in Multivitamin can be obtained from food. The Vitamin I was using which I love is PLNT - Whole Food Women’s Multivitamin from Vitamin Shoppe. (Brown box). For example Calcium. This vitamin only has 21 mg and it’s recommended we have 1,000 mg daily. I can get that from tofu and certain vegetables.

Love to hear about your ideas and thoughts.... Tammy

I think you can do mashed tofu, but I'd probably thin it a little with veg broth or soy milk or something. Even fine tofu can be thick to our tummies! When I first tried mashed potatoes I though I would die! Too dense!!!

Thank you for your feedback. ❤️ I put tofu, vegan leek Soup, and flaxseed powder in a blender. It’s very soupy. I’ll try it for the first time today. Every time I eat, I try and walk. I don’t want t get any trapped gas. That happened once and I was miserable a day and half.

It was a bit nutty in flavor so it wasn’t what I thought it would taste like. But it was still good.
