Hi guys!, I had my gastric sleeve surgery on April 1st, and it's been tough. My surgeon gave me the okay to move on to pureed food today. I know you are not allowed to have much sugar, and to try to have little to no consumption of sugar. I made a mistake, and bought a lot of baby food based on fruits such as apple, strawberry, peach, banana, pear, apricot. I didn't check the nutrition facts, and realize it does have sugar added. Just to double check, Am I not allowed to eat anything with sugar? and what did you guys eat for the pureed stage? what can I eat? I really can't stomach the pureed meat, and I am now looking on what I should buy. Advice needed thank you!

Our plans may not be the same, but added sugar is a no-no on my plan, fruit is ok for me but only in small quantities right now.

I'm almost at the end of my 3 weeks on pureed foods. This is what I've been living on:

  1. refried Beans with a little cheese and Valentina sauce
  2. egg salad, replacing mayo with cottage cheese (more Protein plus my tummy doesn't like mayo right now)
  3. soft poached eggs or soft scrambled eggs
  4. tuna salad (I don't mind pureed tuna) also made with cottage cheese
  5. Protein Shakes (I still need them to meet protein goals most days)
  6. Homemade chili, blended up (it's good!) with greek yogurt as sour cream
  7. My version of ricotta bake with made with cottage cheese instead ( I don't like ricotta)
  8. "tuna melt bake". This is just ricotta bake with mashed tuna added. I like tuna melts and it was a change of pace
  9. mashed banana with PB2 (not my favorite, but still ok)
  10. Baked yam mixed into greek yogurt with PB2 added (tastes better than it sounds)
  11. plain cottage cheese

I almost did the same thing as you but opted against the baby food for a different reason - the ones I looked at weren’t as high in Protein as I was looking for.

for purées, I have stuck to the few things I could do easily and had morejjkk protein: cottage cheese, egg with a little gruyere added, split pea with ham (it’s a little thick so I can usually only do 1/2 cup at a time) and ground turkey with a little taco seasoning or chicken puréed with a little mayo. I was told to have fruits and veggies only after finishing the protein- but it’s all I can do to eat the protein so I don’t know when I’ll be able to add fruits and veggies.

I have not gotten the foamies yet and haven’t really reacted badly yet except having to burp when I get to my limit.

I pretty much lived on scrambled eggs and cottage cheese (often with a little soft fruit like mandarin orange). Luckily, these are both things I like. Other things I had less often but still liked were mexican type dishes with refried Beans, sauce, and soft cheeses and greek yogurt.

Hi dear, I am one week post op today and have been on puree since yesterday. Babyfood is my go to. I also do low cal jelly and custard. I pureed tuna and mayo as well. Doc has no problems with it so I suppose we are different.
