Oh yummy...soft foods

I'm so hungry I'm ready to chew my arm off...but I don't think it qualifies as 'soft' food. No bacon, but yeah baby...I can have eggs!

Good for you for keeping LC while your diet is so limited - the options are so few it really takes strength of character to stick to a plan.

It's out of fear. I know what carbs do to me and I'm so afraid if I go that route again, I'll lose complete control. My low carb protein shakes have been my go to for the past week. The eggs though...oh man I thought I'd died and gone to heaven!

If anyone has any other suggestions for low carb soft foods, send them my way!

Stats: depressed/progressing/HAPPY
*stir together 1 oz cream cheese, 1 T natural creamy pb, 1/2 T cream (more if you want it more pudding like), sweeten to taste (1 packet of splenda/truvia does it for me) microwave for 10 seconds- adding cocoa powder is great too! Creates an awesome spread that is great with just a spoon

*Mock cream of wheat
1/3 cup of ricotta
1 egg
3 T cream
2 T Flavored Liquid sweetener- I like caramel/maple flavored (simulates brown sugar!)

Combine all ingredients in small saucepan and heat over low flame until it thickens a bit (only takes about 2 minutes) Top with granulated sweetener if desired

*mashed cauliflower (comes out super soft in the magic bullet- just add cream & butter)

*Soups

*greek yogurt

Sugar free pudding, I like butterscotch flavor

This is a good chance to try out some beverages. Go to Kroger and try some of the natural diet sodas in the diet food/vitamin aisle.

Buttered coffee!! Keep your fat high!!

Try flax/chia oatmeal! (Report back on this, I'm not sure how this would taste)

Maybe just a cheese omelette with salsa?

Beef or chicken broth

1/2 cup of pumpkin
add spices (I usually use the combo for the pumpkin pie recipe which is cinnamon, ginger, & cloves, plus I add nutmeg)
packet of sweeter

Heat til warm

mix in 1 oz cream cheese - heat until hot

pour on a bit of heavy cream (sometimes I also melt a pat of butter).

For me it is the perfect winter breakfast.

I am on my second day of soft foods (just got dentures). My meals so far have been egg salad, tuna fish, baked fish, cream spinich and cocunut oil.

I really can't believe how bad I want a salad.

Jazzy,
You and me both! I always have a salad with lunch and dinner. I can't wait to have one again, although many banders tell me they have a problem with salad, so here's hoping I'm the exception! I love love love salad.

My surgeon's nurse (also has a band) said she was so desperate for salad that she put it in the blender with the dressing. She didn't recommend it.

I remember after work on my teeth, my roommates (not the same ones I have now) ran some spaghetti and sauce through the blender. The blender was not happy. But hey, now we have eggs available!

Thank you for all the ideas! They should get me through this next week. Then I'm back on solid foods until I get my first fill 2 weeks later. I know a lot of people talk about bandster hell, the period before fills where you're hungry and still able to eat as much as you did before the band...but heck, I've been doing that for the last year.

Again, thanks for the soft food ideas!

lol! When my hubby broke his jaw, he had his mouth wired shut. One day we were cooking on the grill and he said he would do anything for a hot dog. So I thought I would surprize him and put one in the blender with all the fixings.......the look on his face when he tried to eat it.......yeah I dont recommend that either!!!

Ditto on the sugar free pudding. I am having two upper teeth pulled tomorrow morning. I have three so will be down to one. I came in looking for ideas for soft low carb food. I am 61 and am a newly diagnosed diabetic. My glucose was 540 so I am now on insulin. I saw your reply about sugar free pudding and wanted to suggest putting the pudding cups in the freezer and then you can just scrape it off with a spoon. It makes a wonderful sugar free snack and it takes a long time to east so you can enjoy it longer. I do the same thing with yogurt

Will plain Greek yogurt work for you? How about full fat cottage cheese? Avocado mashed with some sour cream to make guacamole (to be eaten with a spoon, not with crunchy dipping foods)? Maybe some very soft cheese, like ripe, triple-cream brie with the rind cut off? Good luck, and hang in there!
