When Could You Eat These?



Recommended Posts

Hello, everyone! Sorry if someone asked this before, but I couldn't find it. My nutritionist has been kind of vague, so I was wondering when you guys could eat the following:

1. quinoa

2. lentils

3. chickpeas

4. lentil- or chickpea-based Pasta (like Banza)

Thanks!

Well you could have lentils and chickpeas as early as pureed stage if you prepare them that way. I would wait on the quinoa and lentil Pasta until soft foods.

I ate hummus pretty frequently during the pureed staged (which is mostly pureed chickpeas), but I waited on the others. You should be OK to eat them once you're on solid food, but I was trying to do moderately low-carb, so I waited a few months on those.

Wait until full foods level keep the calories low as long as you can

Oh I will chime in again and say to take it easy with any new foods you try out. I loved lentils preop but after surgery they give me bloating something fierce!
