Family Cooking w/ Bypass & combined diets



Recommended Posts

Hello, my husband had Gastric Bypass in mid-November & is currently on mostly soft foods. We are working on trying to cook our meals together for things we can both eat & feed our two kids, as well. I prefer the Keto diet for myself to lose the weight I need to lose also, which is not optimal for the bypass diet, at this point I don't think. Has anyone experienced trying to cook meals that everyone can eat or is it easiest just to cook individually based on needs?

I made separate meals for the fam. It was easier.

Mind you, my own meals were not very varied as I basically ate salad & grilled chicken for the most part and making separate meals for me was a no-brainer: keep salad greens in the fridge and grill up chicken in batches to help myself to as needed.

Even before my surgery I've had to cook two meals--I'm a vegetarian and hubby is a carnivore. I've gotten to be a very good short order cook! Now it's easier-anything I cook for myself can be divided and frozen into 4 or 5 meals so I just have to zap it while I cook for DH.
