Having my surgery 1 week from today at HRRH. Weeks 2 and 3 are pureed foods right? (I have poor vision so it is much easier for me to post questions than to try to find someone to read the paperwork to me again) What kind of foods can I puree? Other than bread and pastas is anything off limits? I don't want to hurt myself.

The first 2 weeks when you go home are full fluids. Milk, yogurt, cottage cheese, oatmeal, jello, etc. Week 3 starts purees.
You'll see the nutritionist in the hospital before you go home - make sure you ask her lots of questions!

Hi again, This damn new forum is frustrating, it all turned grey!
OK, week 3 is pureed foods whi*****lude all of full fluid items plus:
pureed meat...chicken or turkey
extra lean ground beef ( I didn't try this)
pureed lentils,beand and other legumes
mashed potatoes / yams
My partner made me a big pot of soup whi*****luded a large can of tomatoes ( including the juice ) one package sauteed ground turkey with garlic and onions
lots of baby spinach
1/4 cup of dry romano beans, same of black eyed peas
1/2 bag pink lentils
campbells low sodium chicken broth (2boxes)
spices...salt, pepper, cumin, tarragon
She made it in the pressure cooker ... Cooked for approx 1 hour, let it cool, then blend in food processor
I LOVED this soup, it was great for me and the pot lasted the week. A power pack of protein, fibre and everything else!
It turns out quite thick, you could water it down as you heat your servings, I didn't because I enjoyed it thick. You could also add buttermilk to individual servings if you want to change it up.
Hope this helps
