Hard Protein



Recommended Posts

I am having a difficult time eating hard Proteins like chicken and some other dry meats. They keep getting stuck! :sick I chew, chew, chew, take small bites, and have tried dipping in sauce, but they still get stuck. What else can I do???

Try baking chicken at a low temperature for a couple hours in BBQ or broth instead of 1 hour at at a high temp. Or cook chicken in the crock pot with a little Water. Slow cooking makes it fall off the bone, much easier to swallow.

Lots of people food-process chicken to make pate.

Some people have problems with chicken. So far, I've done well with it and it's one of the things that stays in my pouch the longest. I can't really eat beef unless it's ground beef or totally cooked to pieces.

What works for me Blossom is taking a bite of meat with a bite of veggies together. The canned green Beans, peas, or spinach work well with most meats. Take a little bite with both together and see if it helps. Someone gave me this tip in the beginning because I was having the sameproblem and it has worked great for me ever since.

Dark Meat chicken works best too..as wel las high grade steak cooked a little pink, the more well done the harder and drier it is to get down.

Blossom,

I have trouble with meat and cured it bye changing to more fish. But when I do eat it I, like Michelle, take a veggie with it while chewing. trouble is I cut my meat into very small pieces and then chew very well. The meat tends to get cold fast like this and then I don't enjoy it....Pain nuking the meat 4 or 5 times during the meal.

I put the chichen in a crockpot with some salsa - let it simmer all day. It is moist and tastes great. I use 4-6 breasts and one large jar of salsa. It feeds my family for two meals.

Thank's ya'll! I will try your suggestions. Did I ever tell you what a picky eater I am. About the ONLY kind of meat I will eat is lean beef or white meat chicken. I can't eat fish or seafood in any form or fashion (meaning that I am gagging at the mere thought!) Kinda limits me in how to get my Protein, though.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
