Hi I should be on purees by Wednesday or Thursday. My husband had his sleeve surgery done on 2017 and told me he struggled about a week with purees. He is also kind of picky. Did you have trouble?

Oh yeah. Everything seemed to taste terrible & the texture was unpalatable too. I had a very limited diet through this stage. Thank goodness a friend told me she’d poach chicken breast then purée it with lots of gravy. (The salt in the gravy probably made it more tolerable.) I ate a lot of Soup & porridge. It was a long two weeks before I could start on soft foods & was able to eat mince & slow cooked stews.

I didn't mind it. It was a relief to eat real food again, even if it was pureed. I ate pureed omelets, pureed cottage cheese, hummus, some kind of baked spinach/feta cheese dish, and pureed "ricotta bake" (from "The World According to Eggface" blog - which is worth checking out for lots of recipes for all stages)

I didn't mind it. After two weeks on all liquids, eating yogurt and pureed Beans was a treat! Some people eat pureed cooked chicken, but that looks gross to me, so I waited until the soft food stage to eat meat. Here are some of the things I ate during the pureed stage:

  • Fat-free, sugar-free yogurt with Protein Powder
  • Sugar-free pudding with Protein powder
  • No sugar added applesauce with protein powder
  • Protein oatmeal (from the BariatricPal store) with protein powder
  • Pureed fat-free refried beans with protein powder, topped with enchilada sauce and Laughing Cow cheese
  • Mashed cauliflower with protein powder, topped with gravy
  • Pureed black bean Soup with protein powder

I had a bit of a tough time with it. I'm not a picky eater when it comes to different types of foods, but I'm very picky about how things look and the texture. And I can't eat something pureed, like meat, that isn't normally pureed. I just can't bring myself to do it. I survived by eating already pureed type foods like applesauce. After that week things got SO much easier!
