|Salton Mug Warmer|
|Various sauces, etc.|
I also bought several tiny containers, that hold about 4 ounces. That's about the size of my meals,so they're perfect.
|Pureed egg salad|
|Pureed egg salad and espresso cup of V8 juice|
|Items with my hand to show scale|
|Chili, ready to be pureed|
On Sunday my Mom made Ribs, and they smelled wonderful. She left two baby ribs free of sauce for me, and I cut off all of the fat and chopped the meat. I made my own BBQ sauce using 2 tbsp low sugar ketchup, 2 tbsp Splenda Brown Sugar, 2 tbsp salsa, and 1 tsp of mustard, for kick . There was enough for two servings and it was my absolute favorite meal so far.
Today was the first day that I was able to get almost all of my protein in (I need a minimum of 60 grams and was able to get in 55 grams), without resorting to a protein shake
For breakfast I had greek yogurt with 1 tbsp of no sugar added strawberry jam.
For lunch I had a container of BBQ ribs (to die for).
For supper I had pureed cheeseburger with all the fixings. One small home made patti, made from lean ground beef, was enough for two servings. I added low sugar ketchup, mustard, relish, low fat miracle whip, and salsa, and pureed it Then I heated it in the microwave so I could melt a low fat cheese slice over it. Yum. Sorry, no photo; I was too hungry to look for my camera.
So that is what I am eating on the puree stage. I've also tried refried beans with yogurt, and cottage cheese. Both good. I will be on the puree stage until March 2nd, and then can progress to the soft food stage.
