My diet stayed clean throughout my recovery. I made it through clear liquids, full liquids, soft foods then I was finally cleared to go back to a regular diet. Once I was cleared to eat soft foods I was extremely happy. The soups, broths and protein shakes started to get boring.
On the regular, I balance my diet with tons of protein and fatty rich foods. Fruit is also a staple in my diet. I always try to monitor my food and fluid intake. I have experienced being overstuffed twice since surgery and man oh man was it unpleasant. My stomach is only 5oz so I try to eat slowly, chew my food completely and wait 30minutes after to drink.
Fish & Grits
I was still able to enjoy a lunch date with the hubbs and eat a full liquid. I only had about 3 spoons before I got full. But it tasted AMAZING! Our 1st time going to @cheddarskitchen and it won’t be our last
My son cooked me dinner tonight
13G Protein Salmon Soup
So I tried an experiment today. I was able to get 13g of proteins in 4oz of soup today. Simply using blended salmon and chicken broth. Taste pretty good, very simple and easy to make. I’m going to revamp it tomorrow and see what the difference is. Can’t wait
Sometimes my stomach gets on my nerves
