I think I get to start real food today- as some of you know there are 4 stages of food post surgery.
1. Clear/Liquid meals
2. pureed foods
3. soft foods
4. food foods
There are still a bunch of things that we are warned about eating for a while- like raw veg., foods with a lot of fiber that will be hard for the little tunny to process. I have tried adding toasted whole wheat tortilla, which has been the best bread option in my stomach so far. I did try a bagel thin but if I do it again it will have to be toasted. The softness of bread is hard on the little tummy.
Food I packed today:
1. String cheese
2. fat free greek yogurt (i add splenda to mine)
3. 2 of of tuna w/ low fat mayo
4. 2 laughing cow light
5. 4 slices of sandwich meat (97% FF)
Mostly soft. I am craving apple. Applesauce gave me heartburn so maybe if I peel and slice raw that will be better.
I came across this on my cousin +Mary McCormick's facebook page. It was inspiring. No Regrets.
