I barely remember the pureed stage. It goes pretty fast. I know it isn't that much fun while you are on it. Cindy's pumpkin pudding sounds pretty good. I think I lived on blended cottage cheese and scrambled eggs.

I bake the pumpkin pie filling. It is like a custard or pudding. If you are worried about it being too thick then try adding a little less pumpkin than it calls for.

Oh, I just remembered I added protein powder to the pumpkin and a little sugar free syrup and heated it in the microwave to warm it and just ate that some days.

Thank God for Celery seed and onion powder,, right?

Vienna sausages and liverwurst or pate is as close as I can get to pureed meats. Love them for what they are, and I know that it is in my head, but any other kind of pureed meat just grosses me out.

My surgeon's plan only allows for pureed meat, low carb yogurt or cottage cheese. No veggies or fruit yet. I begin fruit and non starch veggies after the pureed stage.

I'm doing pretty good. I have low carb yogurt and mix protein powder in with it for breakfast. For lunch and dinner I have refried beans with cheese, pureed boca burgers with a little A-1 sauce, pureed chicken with bbq sauce, taco sauce or make a chicken salad. I also make tuna salad.

I do miss the celery and onion in the tuna salad and chicken salad but I'm doing ok. I will be glad to get to real food.

Do you bake the pumpkin pie filling, or just eat it as is?

I do not care for pureed foods, so I pretty much lived on refried bean "soup", pizza "soup" and whatever I could handle from a poached egg. The pizza soup was just pizza sauce thinned with chicken broth, and I would add some shredded cheese while it was heating. The refried soup was jus like Cindy's Beans thinned with chicken broth and a little cheese.

My favorite pureed food was tortilla soup (only 2 or 3 small tortilla chips to 16 oz of soup). Do not forget to add avacado. It tasted great! If you need to beef up your protein then add a a little plain protein power after you heat it up and just before you eat it.

My other favorite was Trader Joe's fat free refried beans (thin with some broth to consistancy you need). I topped with shredded cheddar and a dollop of light sour cream before blending. I still eat refried beans but also now add pico de gallo. My favorite go to meal from the cupboard!

My final favorite entre was homemade chili or Wendy's chili with lowfat cheddar (blended). Add a dollop of lowfat sour cream.

I also made a diet version of pumpkin pie filling (no crust) and I added a little protein powder to it. Splenda or Sugar free syrup can be used in place of sugar and I used a little evaporated skim milk. I used liquid eggs but you can use the liquid eggwhites. You may need to add a little extra egg and evap skim milk if you add a scoop of protein powder. Look at consistancy before you add protein powder and then afterward and use that as your guide.

I also added protein powder to sugar free pudding Just 1 tablespoon for 1 serving (1/4 cup).

Oh, no it is way past dinner time. Lucky I have a little chili in the refrigerator!

My sister told me the special ed kids got everything in the school lunch pureed. So I ran with that. I put anything that appealed into my blender, with a little extra liquid. Even a bratwurst with mustard and pickle went into the blender. It tasted pretty good, but I really missed texture. I ate a lot of pureed scrambled egg and a lot of pureed soup and pureed cottage cheese.

I teach special education and I have a student who only eats pureed food. His parents send anything and everything pureed. It doesn't always look too appetizing but it smells great and he doesn't miss a bite. He has had clam chowder, beef stew, green beans, broccoli, taco soup - just anything his family eats for dinner. I especially liked cream of chicken soup - just puree the chicken bits. I didn't have to stay on pureed foods for very long and still didn't feel like eating much so I didn't worry too much about that. Good luck - looks like you're off to a great start!

I believe in taking a positive attitude toward the world. My hope still is to leave the world a little bit better than when I got here.

Tomorrow is my 2 week anniversary and I get to start pureed foods. I am so happy to get something besides liquid. I've had a hard time getting all the fluid and protein and carbs in. If I could guzzle the protein it would be easier but alas I cannot.

I have several things I plan on putting in the food processor but I thought I would ask for some tips from the pros. Any pureed food ideas, tips or advice I would love since this will be my diet for the next 4 weeks.

Thanks
