    I recently had gastric bypass surgery, and I am looking for different ways to eat/cook. I am looking for high protein, low carb, low calorie foods to cook and eat... Any suggestions will be appreciated.
    If you have had this surgery to better your life, your recipes will be cherished...

    ****I have a friend who had this done so I asked her for some info and this is what she sent me hope it helps somewhat icon_smile.gif ************



    No-Noodle Lasagna

    This recipe is suitable for the pureed food stage.

    Ingredients:

    Low fat ricotta cheese

    Spaghetti sauce (look for sugar free sauce)

    Grated parmesan cheese

    Directions:

    Put two tablespoons of ricotta cheese in a bowl. Top with one tablespoon of spaghetti sauce and one tablespoon of grated parmesan cheese. Microwave for three minutes.

    Variation: One you progress to the soft stage, you can add cooked ground beef to the lasagna if you like.




    Refried Bean Delight

    This recipe is suitable for both the pureed stage and the soft stage.

    Ingredients:

    Fat free refried beans

    Salsa

    Shredded cheddar cheese

    Directions:

    Put two tablespoons of refried beans in a bowl. Top with one teaspoon of salsa and one tablespoon of shredded cheddar cheese. Microwave for three minutes.




    Cheese and Veggie Casserole

    This is suitable for the soft stage, but not for the pureed stage.

    Ingredients:

    Two cups of cottage cheese

    Half cup of shredded cheese (whichever type of cheese you prefer - I like it with grated parmesan)

    Two eggs (or the equivalent of Egg Beaters)

    One bag of frozen vegetables (broccoli is good, or broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots)

    Directions:

    Mix all ingredients in a casserole dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. One cup equals one serving, although you may need to eat less than that, depending on how much food fills you up at this stage.




    Tomato Crab Soup

    Ingredients

    * 3 cups tomato juice
    * 12 ounces evaporated milk
    * 1-2 small onions
    * ½ teaspoon basil
    * 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
    * 3 tablespoons flour
    * ¼ teaspoon old bay seasoning
    * 3 tablespoons olive oil
    * ¼ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
    * 1 teaspoon Splenda sweetener
    * 10 ounces lump crab meat
    * ¼ teaspoon thyme
    * 1 clove garlic
    * Salt and pepper - as per taste

    Directions
    Chop onion and garlic into fine pieces. Heat olive oil in a deep bottomed cooking pan and fry the onion and garlic for 8-10 minutes. When they become transparent, put in the flour and stir for a minute or two. Pour in the milk, tomato juice, red pepper flakes, sweetener, thyme, basil, salt, pepper and old bay seasoning and continue to stir. Cook in a high to medium flame. When the mixture starts boiling, turn the flame to low. Simmer for at least 15 minutes, but do not forget to stir in between. Stir in the crab meat and switch off the flame.

    I'm almost 2 years out myself icon_smile.gif Though I didn't have it to better my life so much as speed up my eligibility to donate a kidney.

    Truthfully your post lacks enough detail to offer any REAL help to you. Why type of surgery you had, how long ago you had it and what your diet has been up to now would all be helpful info. Do you Dump (not everyone does)? Are you lactose intolerant?

    My pouch doesn't tolerate red meat at ALL, so I eat a lot of chicken. I get a heck of a lot of use out of tuna and that chicken in a can. You'd be surprised at how much you can do with canned chicken. I'm also allergic to Sucralose (splenda) so nobody likes MY favorite recipes :p

    What I can do is direct you to some bariatric blogs:

    My fav's:

    Pasta is pretty much off limits for all of us. It breaks down into a sugar and makes you sick as a dog.

    Since you love spaghetti you may want to give whole wheat pasta a try. It doesn't swell up like regular pasta. It's not really "good" for us, but eating it now and again isn't the end of the world despite what some folks will tell you.

    Try making some crock pot recipes, it can broaden your food choices tremendously. More flavors and such can make eating less of a drudge. Chicken taco stew is one of my favorites.

    (I forget where I got the recipe)

    1 onion, chopped
    1 16-oz can black beans
    1 16-oz can kidney beans
    1 16-oz can corn (drained)
    1 8-oz can tomato sauce
    2 14.5-oz cans diced tomatoes w/chilies
    1 1.25-oz packet taco seasoning
    1-2 boneless skinless chicken breasts


    Directions

    Mix everything together in a slow cooker except chicken. Lay chicken on top and cover. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours. 30 minutes before serving, remove chicken and shred. Return chicken to slow cooker and stir in.

    I leave out the chili and just use tomato and make my own seasoning. It's really easy to fiddle with this recipe without messing anything up.

    There is a book out there called Before and After Gastric Bypass Surgery by Susan Leach. It is an AWSOME book. It tells about her story, and then toward the back it has about 200 different recipes. I just made the Tandoori Chicken for my family last night and they loved it. I like alot of her recipes and she has a couple different books out that have updated recipes in it. By the way, I had my surgery 5 years ago last month and lost 150 pounds. I gained some back because I had a baby and then hurt my back really bad, but I am almost back to my before baby weight.

    I personally recommend TheWorldAccordingToEggface and her recipes are great for everyone else too.

    Unless you are in a large family that will eat up the balance of regular recipes, gastric bypass patients need smaller recipe portions and that concentrate on the protein. This gal does all that and so much more.

    I had the Roun Y, Gastric Bypass, done 8 months ago. I found some awesome recipes off of Skinnytaste.com. I have 2 recipes I love the most, the first one is Crockpot Taco Chili, It says to use boneless skinless chicken, but I use a pound of Ground Turkey and a package of Mild Turkey Sausage and I love it! The second one is Petite Turkey Meatloaf, you need the special pan, (can be found at Michaels) but it is so worth it!

    This post is so old that you may want to search the name of the person that posted they cooked it and see if they have it with their recipes.

    Thanks for stopping by, I too have had gastric by-pass.
