Getting Ready for the Liquid Diet Phase

Just a week form today I will need to start on my full liquid pre-op diet. So I decided to write down a few ideas for my grocery list. Gotta think about getting ready and I wanted to give myself some different options. Thought I'd write them down here:
  • Chicken Noodle Soup (strained)
  • Vegetable Beef Soup (strained)
  • Potato Soup (strained and diluted)
  • Tomato Soup
  • V-8 Juice/Tomato Juice
  • Fruit Juice
  • Pudding
  • Jell-O
  • Applesauce
  • Milk
  • Popsicles
  • Sherbet
  • Plain Low Fat Ice Cream/Frozen Yogurt
  • Yogurt (no chunks)
  • Cream of Wheat
  • Carnation Instant Breakfast
  • Boost
  • Crystal Light
  • Special K20 Water

  1. The fat free/sugar free Jello pudding (chocolate) was a big help to me during full liquids! Also, I blended up cottage cheese with a bit of milk, and would have it with a banana (blended with milk . . surprisingly good). You can get some fruit and make smoothies -- just don't get fruit with a lot of seeds (i.e. no blackberries).

    That sounds like a pretty good list. Just make sure that you get some delicious soups. You can pretty much blend & strain anything you get, so be sure to buy ones that you find tasty so you don't feel deprived!

    I have a bunch of soup recipes on my blog (with photos) if you are interested. They are all easy to make and really helped me get through the liquids and mushies stages.

    Best wishes for your success -- and, Happy Thanksgiving!!
