Recipies for bariactric patients ( stomach bypass ops)

My friend and I are willing to collect and compile and sample recipies for those of us who have had a gastric bypass. Since we can have little to do with vegetables because of little or no stomach most will be high protien and how to make it not taste like sand in your food, and flavorful veg and startches. Help us out and we want to publish one to help others like us who have had to make this lifestyle change but still want a variety and flavor of the food we do eat. Thanks!!!

Jethro says: l was the 3rd person to have gastric banding done in Australia way back in 1982, and have just had the band removed 9 weeks ago, after it was found to be
un-necessary due to a pituitary tumour that caused the weight gain 40 years ago, l had a normal diet but without any lumps in it, one of the best for me was rolled oats made very thinly, and mashed eggs very lightly poached almost strained.
The most important thing is to try and keep fiber in your system and eat very small portions. Good luck with your bypass, l lived with mine for almost 30 years and it at times was a struggle but l survived and so will you. Reply

My Mum has come up with this recipe though and it's one thing I can keep down.

You lightly fry up 1 roughly chopped onion add some garlic, in a large saucepan you then add 750gm of brocolli florets and 1 roughly chopped carrot with 3 cups of liquid stock. You can use either chicken or vegetable or half and half. Drain the liquid from 440gm can of cannelini beans and add to vegetables after the cool slightly. Then place the whole lot in a blender and blend until smooth. You can add salt and pepper if you like but we don't. As it has no cream or any fat it's easy to digest. I can be frozen and reheated in the microvave. You can use any mix of vegies so long as you don't forget the stock and cannelini beans. Have a try and see if it is good enough for your book.
Good Luck

penny says: was your the r and y or the stomach resectioning. i have found since i have had the resectioning one i can eat almost anything, but my friend had the bypass thing and has a hard time like u holding things down, one of the things we both like is some soft boiled eggs till the yolk is just firm and mash that with a little light mayo and some curry powder, gives the eggs some flavor and we put it on cruskits or some light rice crackers. get protien and carbs down. granted only about 2 or 3 crackers worth but it is yumm. i will try your out too and let him know also. cheers and thanks for the reply penny

mismoo says: Hi Penny, I had the r and y type surgery in 2009 but after 6 attempts to stretch the opening because I couldn't keep anything down, my surgeon decided to go back in and see what was wrong,. I had a severe infection on all my joins so he cleaned it all up and things are now a bit better. I will try a soft boiled egg as I know that I can keep crackers down. Thanks for the help Reply
