Recipes...I NEED RECIPES LOL



Recommended Posts

2 week post op and i am on puree and soft food. My GERD has been on 1000 and I cannot take it. Everything I eat flares it up.

I cannot not do puree due to having issue with consistency of foods. I know a lot of you may think its all in my head, but the graininess of it I cannot tolerate.

I was given a ricotta bake recipe which was amazing. I was wondering if anyone had any to share?

Had my first post op appointment yesterday, down to 315 from 339 the day of surgery. I want to continue this downward trend without any problems, but eating has become a serious pain and I feel like I'm heading to a point with I might develop a fear of eating.

So please please please, if any one has any recipes I would greatly appreciate it.

yikes! Did you mention your GERD to anyone at your clinic? They should be able to put you on something for that. A lot of us are on PPI's for the first few months after surgery.

wow - I hope that'll help. I had GERD before I had surgery - I wouldn't wish that on anyone!

Good idea! The other place is the blog called "The World According to Eggface". She's a long-time bariatric patient who's been very involved in the bariatric community for many years. AND...she loves cooking. She also has a lot of recipes on her site for all stages.
