Can I have lump crab spinach dip puréed?



Recommended Posts

Hi I was wondering during the purées stage if I could have Lump crab spinach dip puréed? Crab is high in Protein and I’m scared to eat meat right now and honestly don’t have a craving for it. I tried Chick-fil-A grilled nuggets puréed and let’s say they don’t purée well.

We know nothing about you. Maybe fill out your profile so we can see how far out you are, what kind of surgery you had, etc.

Simple and low fat low cal is best to maximize your weight loss during this brief honeymoon period. People typically lose their most weight in the first 2 months when they don't or can't eat much and what little they do eat is very low in calories, high in nutrients and Protein.

I skipped puree. I was able to go per my doc to mushies, but I ate puree level stuff (fork mashable). I had things like:

tuna and egg salad mixed with 2% cottage cheese and greek yogurt and dijon

canned chicken with low cal/low carb gravy and smashed cauliflower

Soups (broths and cream with extra protein)

chili (not so good--too much fat and too much spice)

yogurt + cottage cheese + apple sauce (unsweetened)

green smoothies

foil wrapped fish

canned veg or frozen veg cooked until death

i say most likely yes as you can see by my profile picture I mainly eat seafood, I eat crab, shrimp, lobster and salt Water fish since i could - Just for the hell of it I have pureed shrimp into a soupy shrimp chowder and had no problems. Stone crab is the same texture so my feeling is yes.

I have a chopper for veggies one of those bladed things you slam up and down to dice onions and other veggies - Works great on seafood also.

No garlic butter and as for spinach dip i would say the mayo may be to heavy, You can do a lettuce wrap works great and use butter lettuce good stuff and easy to digest

Use low fat mayo/cream cheese and you should be ok. Might put extra Protein via crab or powder just to be safe.

Yep. Sorry. Should have said the crab would be perfect...it was exactly the cream cheese and mayo that would have sent me to the morgue. LOL. Especially early days, I did not do well with heavy, fatty dishes. I still don't.

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!

      Well, it has been a while since I posted here, but my journey continues. As for breaking my stall, I was able to get down to 214 with the help of a friend via our Fitbit fitness trackers which has made me ecstatic! Since that has happened I was fortunate enough to have my insurance company approve a panniculectomy to remove the panniculus (THIS is the correct term, NOT pannus, see this reference: https://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/panniculus) that has been deviling me for years, even before I had bariatric surgery. It was to the point that it was hanging down far enough to cover my pubic area, covered half my thighs when I would sit, and also drooped between my legs which I could hardly manage to keep together when sitting. For any males that may read this, for a woman that is pretty uncivilized, not to mention, unladylike especially when wearing a dress or skirt - just looks slovenly to say the least. Despite the numerous skin issues I had the last couple of years, my health insurance insisted the procedure was cosmetic... 🤐 . I would guess no one that is saying so has been in the bariatric patient's shoes. The damn thing was just getting to be a self-esteem killer in addition to a medical nuisance requiring many visits to my primary care physician, and interfering with my mobility. Now, I realize there are folks with more egregious panniculus sag issues, but the fact that it interferes with mobility is an important consideration.
      One thing I have to say is that this surgery is drastically different from any other I've had. Things occur that are deemed routine, expected even, after a panniculectomy that would be downright unacceptable after any other procedure. This plastic surgery experience is definitely a learning experience that is still unfolding as I key this entry. For one thing, the swelling is a story all it's own, I had no clue my abdomen could get so large, so quickly, without causing my skin to just split open - it's crazy! So far, I'm pleased to have been able to get this procedure despite may be perceived as drawbacks, just to get the pendulous adipose tissue demon off of my person. Here are a few links to information about this procedure for anyone considering it in the future:

I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
