What are your favorite food go-to's ?



Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone 👋

I am currently on the soft food stage & feel like it would be great to hear what everyone else's favorite go-to's are. It would be so helpful to get new ideas & see what has worked for others.

Share foods for whatever stage you are currently at, or various stages. Share any meal of the day or snack, or a number of your faves!

Looking forward to hear what everyone is eating!😊🍳🥘🍲

Oh good idea, I think I might be going out for Japanese food next week, maybe I'll get sashimi! Thanks, Tomo!😁

Regular food Stage: I've pretty much continued eating like I did several months BEFORE surgery (low carb/no sugar) only less.

Breakfast: scrambled egg & 1 turkey sausage patty OR a one egg omelet w/cheese and/or veggies OR a turkey sausage, egg and cheese on a whole wheat Thomas' English Muffin (can only eat like half to 3 quarters of it)

Lunch: tuna (with just light mayo, salt and pepper) along with 6 whole wheat crackers and a few cubes of cheese OR a few pieces of lunchmeat and cheese OR left over Protein from the night before OR natural PB with some sugar free jelly on whole wheat bread.

Dinner: When it comes to meat/protein it's almost always chicken (baked/cooked various ways)/shrimp/salmon/fish, etc. I TRY to also get in veggies but am usually barely able to fit them in once I eat my protein but veggies will be anything from broccoli, green Beans & mushrooms, spinach, brussel sprouts, cauliflower, etc.

Snacks: I don't usually snack at all during day. But if I still feel hungry after my meals I will take that opportunity to eat some sort of fruit or yogurt or cottage cheese. I usually make it a point of getting in at least two servings of fruit a day anyway.

My meals don't typically include starches (hell, if I barely have room for veggies then I almost never have room for a starch) but once in a while they do and it will be something like brown rice, protein Pasta, veggie pasta, potatoes, or the whole wheat/grain bread, whole wheat/grain English muffins, whole wheat/grain crackers. Stuff along those lines.

That’s an excellent thread but obviously all those foods are not for every stage. Just a heads up just in case.

My go to on puree was chicken salad. Soft stage was buffalo chicken meatballs.

The meatballs sound good for regular food stage. We’re they easy to make?

I think many of these will be my go-to's later on. Can't wait to add a little whole wheat or low carb bread or Cracker options when my new stomach is ready to handle it!

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
