    Hello! Just had my surgery on July 6th. I am in the puréed food stage. Any healthy ideas for foods? How many times a day did you eat? How many Ounces? Thanks!!!

    Lots of soups. Really worth investing in a wand blender. Then you simply boil up the ingredients roughly cut up, add a stock cube and blend. To make it more of a ‘cream of’ soup add a little natural yogurt but don’t let it boil once that’s gone in. Soups freeze and actually improve from a few days in the fridge. Following the simple procedure above you can make these soups most of which benefit from throwing in half an onion too:
    Leek and potato (if tired you can use frozen mash Aunt Bessie’s has no dodgy ingredients).
    Broccoli and Stilton (only needs a little Stilton to keep fat levels down but it’s protein) again don’t boil once cheese added.
    Frozen peas (a good protein source) with a little ham or cheese.
    Vegetable – any but add some tinned no added sugar chick peas or red kidney beans for protein
    Good old carrot and coriander – simply carrots and a bunch of coriander leaved
    Cold gazpacho – great in summer – fresh (dunk in boiling water to remove skins) tomatoes or tinned, a little stale bread (maybe leave this out in the first few weeks), some cucumber, a drip of olive oil, a little vinegar to taste and some fresh herbs, mint is good – taste of summer – don’t heat but add ice cubes when serving.
    Carol the cooks book is worth buying, available from streamline.
    Hope these ideas help you and others.

    As doodah says above the first four weeks for me also were soups soups and more soups.. and lots of pureed veg, some chicken/beef (pureed) fruit… Some weetabix in the morning.. If I remember correctly I was having 3meals and 2 snacks a day and not forgetting the WATER… That’s so very important after surgery good luck!
