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.

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
