Favorite high protein recipes



Recommended Posts

Looking for some new recipes to try. I am not very picky and eat just about everything. I've found some things on Pinterest, but kind of getting tired of the same things all the time. High Protein recipes would be great. I was never a huge meat eater even before surgery, so the protein part is sometimes a struggle. I do sometimes do the Protein Shakes, but I would prefer not doing them unless I really need that extra protein. I've been doing pretty good getting my protein with the food I eat, but like I said I need some new recipes!

check out "The World According to Eggface" blog. She had weight loss surgery several years ago and loves cooking (she's also very active in the bariatric community - including on the board of the Obesity Action Committee). She's got recipes for all stages on here:

My favorite high Protein meals are Dal/Lentils or black eyed peas.
I don’t make Dal the traditional Indian way but you can easily cook it in a instapot or crockpot, add some onion, tomatoes, garlic powder, salt and pepper, chili powder, or any of your favorite seasoning. Dal aka lentils are super awesome for high protein and taste sooo good!

In my opinion, there's almost always something (or multiple somethings) that can be swapped out in a recipe for something that has more Protein or is healthier.

Swap ground turkey or chicken for beef, add Protein Powder to almost anything.

      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.

        I hear you. This has been the hardest day for me so far (2 days post-op).
