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!😁

This is a great thread for ideas...but be careful, not all items will appeal to everyone! I'm looking at you Parmesan Crisps!

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!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

      2. SleeverSk

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
