2 weeks out from surgery got the green light for soft foods



Recommended Posts

Greek Yogurt, Ricotta cheese bake or ricotta w/ vanilla extract if I want it sweet, scrambled eggs.

As for Protein Shakes, have you tried Fairlife yet? They are really good, My fave is strawberry banana.

Scrambled eggs (with a tiny bit of shredded cheese), pureed Soups - OMG - Campbells Kickin Crab and Corn in the blender is AMAZING! Starkist tuna (in 2 oz packages) has a ton of flavors that are really good. If you like spicy stuff, the Buffalo flavor is great (AND, they are only .99 most places)- 9 grams of protein!. Very thinly sliced deli meat, soft flaky fish are all my go-to's right now.

Cappucinno with skim milk if you can tolerate milk.

I second the ricotta bake recommendation -- it's the most popular bariatric recipe for a reason! I like to top it with shredded canned chicken mixed with marinara sauce (Newman's Own brand has no added sugar).

Low fat cottage cheese is one of my go-to quick lunches. I like to top it with Flavor God nacho cheese or pizza seasoning.

Another favorite is fat free refried Beans (mixed with unflavored Protein powder) topped with shredded canned chicken, enchilada sauce, and Laughing Cow white cheddar cheese (cut up in little pieces).

It's hard to get enough protein from food at this stage, so you'll probably have to make up the difference with Protein Powder and shakes. If you're eating sweet foods, I think it works better to mix a complementary flavor of protein powder than unflavored. For example, vanilla protein powder in vanilla yogurt, chocolate protein powder in chocolate pudding, cinnamon protein powder in oatmeal. One of my favorite combinations is vanilla Oikos triple zero yogurt with chocolate protein powder and powdered Peanut Butter.
