Obviously, Zero Carb bread (I didn't love it, but you HAVE to try it to know!)

Frozen Avocado Chunks (if you like Avocado in smoothies

Probiotic Keto Cookies

Bacon and Jalapeno Cheddar cheese (or is that just me??)

Brie/Smoked Oysters (Again...just me?? I have the Brie and Smoked Oysters as a "treat" lunch or dinner with Crunchmaster Protein Crackers that I get at Publix)

Grass Fed Ground Beef/Stew Meat/Lamb - the meats are usually organic and surprisingly good!

chicken Sausage

Deli meat and cheese

Thanks so much, Kelly, for your detailed reply!
I was disappointed that no one responded when I remembered there were some Aldi loving posters!
Really appreciate it & will check it out!

Just discovered this Starburst sugar-free drink mix, and it is delicious! I haven't tried the other flavors, but I love the strawberry. Box of 6 single-serving packets is $1 at most stores.

I've seen it at Dollar General, Walmart, and Walgreens. I also tried the blue raspberry and cherry, which are also good, but the all pink strawberry is still my favorite. I bought a larger size of that (packets that make a gallon). I make it half-strength.

I just found out that there's now a Skittles drink mix, which is sold at Walmart but sadly, they were out of stock.

I don't have a dollar general or a walmart near me, but there's a walgreens pretty close. I'm on vacation right now so I'll see if I can find one here! Thanks!

Haha, that's crazy... I live in a rural area, so I only have Dollar Generals near me! There are at least 4 Dollar general stores closer to my house than any grocery store. You can get these on Amazon, but they're way overpriced there.

OMG! I went to Walgreens where I'm on vacation and I picked up 3 boxes of strawberry and one of cherry and they are amazing!!!

Yeah I live near Boston and there's a Family Dollar a few towns over but it's hard to park there. I can go to Dollar General when I visit my friend in NC next month. There's a Walmart about a half hour away from where I live but I don't usually make the trek out there. The Walgreens is about 10 minutes away. I don't usually go there since there are 2 CVSs in walking distance, but it's worth it since these are sooo good.

I told my friend about them and she was intrigued too!

See the source imageI had these last night with some salsa and YUM! The regular chips don't do much for me, but these were really food! I'm going to try and make nachos with them!

The ranch flavor are really good too (just tried them). Thanks for the tip.

I have found several great foods recently, and I’m going to post each in a different comment. I absolutely love these muffins. They come in multiple flavors. I eat one every day after I’ve gotten all of my Protein in.

It took forever to figure out who carried the various flavors of these, but I found them and tried the banana chocolate chip Verion and they are really good. Thanks for the tip.

Love the Protein chips! Nacho cheese is delicious and they’re easy to digest with plenty of protein.

Just found new Quest Peanut Butter cups at Walmart. It’s not a Reece’s cup but I will definitely be buying again for chocolate cravings.

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

    • spatty

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

        Had surgery on Thursday the 17th. Everything went well and came home the next day. I have been on two protein shakes and liquids/broth each day since but will finally graduate to pureed foods on Thursday. Been walking and doing my breathing exercises as recommended. No pain that Tylenol can't ease but only needed it twice since I've been home. Don't bother taking extra stuff to the hospital as you will not use it. No time to read or talking as you will be sipping all day long and walking. And they will be giving you pain meds so you will be sleepy. Definitely take lip balm and wear loose clothes to the hospital and wear the same ones home. No need to overpack. Good luck everyone who will be going next. YOU GOT THIS!!!!

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

        I am 2 days post-op and really struggling with everything. My depression isn't helping any. I couldn't even finish one shake today and swallowing meds is just excruciating.

    • Crystalmoon

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

      2. Iluvbats

        I hear you. This has been the hardest day for me so far (2 days post-op).
