I find these at costco. They are so creamy and so much cheaper than the Starbucks egg bites. The Flavcity guy recommended them too. They also have a ham and cheese one too.

These are my absolute favorite! This flavor particularly is the best of all of them in my opinion.

I would not eat this - I have to be very very careful with artificial sweeteners. It has erythritol and sorbitol both which cause me to have the runs really really really badly. I cannot drink any of the weight loss shakes or meal replacers or these "diet bars" no zero calorie sweetened yogurt, no low cal/low sugar ice creams unless I read the ingerdients really carefully. Anyone with celiac disease of gluten intolerance also should be VERY careful with these.

I'm the exact same way and I'm pre-op. Literally the only artificial sweetener that doesn't give me gas or the runs is Sucralose.

Has anyone tried shrewd food Protein puffs? Someone recommended them (they sell on Amazon) but I am curious to know if anyone else likes them.

They sell these at Walmart and they are just 35 calories and “snack” size is perfect for us.

Update: I went ahead and ordered these and tried them. I do not recommend them. The Quest chips are better.

I was wondering about them too. Too bad. What was wrong with them?

Well I think part of it was that the nacho cheese flavor (the first I tried out of the variety pack) looked like cheese balls but tasted nothing like them. They were more the consistency and crunch of croutons but nacho cheese flavored. I also tried the pizza flavor and was not a fan. Then I tasted the desert ones (cookies and cream and strawberries and cream) and for lack of better description they were too vanilla (which I stole from my hubbies reaction (just Blah to me). They do make croutons which I am waiting for a salad to try and I think they may actually be good because that’s the consistency the others had. I will update if so cause Protein packed croutons would be a great product to have in our bag of tricks. All that being said, if you are not a consistency person, I would try them because the flavors weren’t bad and my best friend loves them. They have the variety pack (including the croutons) on Amazon.

I’m sure it’s in here somewhere but I don’t have the time to go through every post…. Can someone recommend a low sugar marinara or Tomato sauce that’s good for the ricotta bake? Thank you in advance! You guys are the best!

I like Rao’s marinara. Kind of expensive, but worth it in my opinion.

You can always make your own Tomato sauce/Passata & totally control the ingredients. It’s pretty easy. Just blanch your tomatoes & peel off their skin. Quarter them & cut out the seeds. You can cook them on the stove or roast them in the oven. You can cook up onion with the tomato too. Add herb & spices, salt & pepper as you want. Even a splash of balsamic vinegar - brings out the tomatoes natural sweetness. No need for sugar. When cooked blend & sieve. Freezes well too so you can make in bulk.

Rao’s is the best but if you want something cheaper, Newman’s Own marinara is very good and has no added sugar.

Rao’s is absolutely the best. I figure since I’m not eating that much spending the extra for good marinara is worth it.

Rao’s (pronounced ray-ohs) is the best sauce and the only jarred marinara we use. Their arrabiata (spicy sauce) is wonderful but their regular marinara is also fantastic!

Thank you all! Ok! Rao’s it is! Do you blend and strain or use as is for puréed stage? I start REAL food tomorrow! Puréed or not, I’m stoked! 21 days felt long! 😆.
Any other meal/recipe suggestions for the phase that you love?
love this group!

        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.

      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.

      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).

      I honestly haven’t weighed myself since surgery, looking forward to doing it!
