I see folks posting they are having soup and pudding on full liquids. I thought full liquids was just the re-introduction of protein shakes and some yogurt/milk. Of course, as I look through my NUT instructions, they don't mention soup ever, so who knows. I was thinking that could come in at puréed stage.
Thanks for any guidance.
There are a lot of different plans out there. Some people come out of surgery and have only clear liquids for two weeks, then full liquids. Some define full liquids as only shakes and such, not greek yogurt and soup. My plan did 2 days clear liquids, then full liquids for 2 weeks. Full liquids included soup (no chunks at all) and greek yogurt.

For me, full liquids included anything that would pour through a wire strainer. So, cream of whatever soup thinned with milk passed the test. Purees was anything that came out of a blender and contained no solids; for that I made soups with meat and blenderized the whole thing so as to get the protein.
If you blenderize a meat soup and pour it through a fine sieve, whatever comes out the bottom is 'full liquid' and whatever stays in the strainer is "puree" so you get a two-for-one deal! Freeze them down and you've got both stages covered.
