Post Op Phase 3 BBQ 😩



Recommended Posts

Hi all! I am new to this forum and looking for some support. I’m having my sleeve surgery on July 26. I am hosting a bbq pool party for family (first time we’re seeing each other post COVID) but I will still be in phase 3. What are some good food choices that don’t scream “I just had bariatric surgery”? I was thinking deviled eggs with light mayo would work…. Any other thoughts? Thanks!

phase 3 for me means Soft meals.

As the host, are you supposed to provide the main dish(es)? Or are you just providing a place to gather?

Turkey chili

soft fruit salad (peaches, pears apricots, bananas, seedless melons)

Canned chicken salad (provide rolls for sandwiches)

baked or poached white fish, shrimp, meatballs

cooked vegetables

Sausages & meat patties. Easy bbq meats that are soft & you don’t need to eat them with bread rolls. I still have trouble with char grilled meats & vegetables even at 25 months out because of the dryness of the char so tread carefully. Grilled prawns should be ok or fish in foil cooked over flames. Just keep to soft, moist foods & you’ll be fine.

Enjoy your time with your family.

I highly recommend ground or minced meat shaped around skewers and grilled. They are traditionally called Adana kebab or koftas.

These are usually super soft Protein options and BBQ friendly since they are normally grilled anyway. Have fun with your family and congratulations in advance.

A couple of recipes in the links below;

Was gonna say much that was mentioned above, skewers with various meats and veggies, (sugar free) BBQ chicken, Italian Sausages & Peppers, Kielbasa, burgers and hot dogs should be fine too. Aldi has some great Keto bun options if you want to have Buns for others and yourself. There is Pasta made of lentils, chickpeas etc. that you could use to make a macaroni salad. fruit tray. Veggie tray. Lots of options.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
