Pureed Egg Salad (Keeping Me Sane)



Recommended Posts

Hi -

Protein Shakes were driving me NUTS. I am at the very end of full liquids and beginning to introduce pureed food. However my purees are on the liquidier side because it is what I can handle. You can add less liquid to this recipe if your tummy can handle thicker stuff. I was so wanting something savory. I've been basically living off Premier Protein chocolate shakes and broth based Soups with flavorless Protein added (for awhile this was truly all I could handle otherwise I would feel quite ill) but - now I am trying more things gradually.

Note - this serves probably like 6-8 servings? Maybe more? I haven't measured. I just eat a few spoonfuls and don't over-do it.

Ingredients

🔸4 hard boiled eggs

🔸1.5 tbsp mayo (I used chosen foods - because it's paleo and doesn't have inflammatory oils - I was paleo before surgery and before pre-op even to help manage my PCOS symptoms)

🔸1 stalk celery chopped

🔸A dash of Himalayan Pink Salt

🔸A dash of Onion Salt (I used Trader Joe's brand)

🔸1/4C Pickle Juice (this is the liquidy element that helped me)

Directions

🔹 Throw everything into the blender and blend until completely smooth.

🔹 Store and refrigerate. I tend to eat 2 oz servings at a time.

Additional notes - you can probably add more seasoning to this if you're able to tolerate. Since I am so early on I wanted to keep it very simple and easy to digest. I loved loved loved this meal. Hope yours turn out great 👍

For a lower fat version, try replacing 1 tbsp of the mayo with greek yogurt and still use .5 tbsp of the mayo. It is a lot less fatty and less calories with very little sacrifice in taste. I use this for egg salad, tuna salad and chicken salad.

LIke Tony said, you can substitute plain Greek yogurt for mayo - and I even know of people who use cottage cheese instead of mayo.

Great idea - thank you!

I can't sub Greek yoghurt or skyr for mayo—it just doesn't taste right to me. But I found that Best Foods light mayo (1/3 the calories and much less fat) tastes just as tangy... so much so, that I don't even use all of a tablespoon for a seafood, tuna, chicken, or egg salad.

Try Walden Farms Amazin' Mayo. Zero Calories. It's runnier and tangy-er than the mayo I'm used to, but tasty.

Walden Farms has a vast product line of Zero Calories salad dressings, sauces, syrups, jellies. I usually can't find more than one or two items in the supermarkets near me, so I order them online.

      Keep going. I guess I'm experiencing a stall almost 6 weeks out. Keep going.

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

        Same with me. Lost 38 lbs from the week I started clear liquids prior to surgery. Did not lose an ounce for the last 10 days, woke up this morning and decreased 2 lbs. I think it is normal. Dont panic. Your body is in shock and trying to figure out how to readjust.

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲
