Pureed Food Menu Question: Sample menu request

Hello VSG Community.
I am 10 days post-op and doing really well, although growing weary of liquid protein.

In planning my pureed food stage, I'm a bit concerned about getting the appropriate level of protein without the volume. For example: If one hard boiled egg has 7g of protein, how can I reach the 60 grams of protein that I currently consume while drinking 3 meal replacement shakes? Or is the 60 grams not realistic.

Would it be possible to share a sample day menu?

When I made it to pureed foods, I was still drinking two protein shakes a day.  For me, it was unrealistic to reach 60+ grams of protein a day without shakes.  

Here's a list of the foods I ate on pureed - I was eating 2 ounces of pureed foods three times a day.  Plus two protein shakes.

many plans allow baked or grilled tilopia without pureeing it just chew well (my plan skipped the purred stage and went straight to soft food)

In addition to the shakes, I added a scoop of an unflavored protein powder (Syntrax Nectar, 10 gr protein/scoop) to my food or beverages in order to get in that minimum of 60 grams. Enjoy!

My plan goes from full liquids (shakes, puddings, cream soups) to soft foods, but it also states that I can have up to 2 shakes a day until the 60+ grams of protein can be eaten. So I plan on supplementing with the shakes.

I am 17 days out and start soft tomorrow so over the liquids also but know it is necessary lol!!

YOU SHOULD LOOK AT EAT THIS NOT THAT. THERE IS A PROTEIN SHAKE AND 8 OZ. IS 42 G OF PROTEIN
