You will get tired of the soups too! I can't stand soup now, Only use it when I have to....after a fill or to give the stomach a rest.

Oh, I LOVE soups!!! even after I could eat solids again. I found a new love for soup because they are easy on the band and your body. Also, tried new flavors that I had NEVER imagined that I would like. Now, when I am lost for looking for the right solid or just feel like a good meal, I have a soup. I enjoy potatoe, broccoli and cheese , tortilla soup, and chicken noodle by Cambell's Select (which is low in sodium and fat) also enjoy Chicken and Dumplings by Cambell's Chunky (it's not low in sodium, but the calories are not horrible either).

Also, what I would do when I found a soup that was too CHUNKY to have early stages, I would add 1/4 cup of water (or more depending on your taste) and blend it on high on my blender for a minute or so, so it would be smooth enough to drink, but not chunky to get stuck for your earrly stage. Then, pour a 1/4 cup of it in a bowl, stick in microwave for about a minute and enjoy= It's great, trust me. I started doing this because I wanted variety.

Now that I can eat solids I have soup as a side dish sometimes, because the veggies are really soft, for example if i eat talipia fish i serve myself a side of potatoe, broccoli and cheese soup and its AWESOME, got the veggies, and protien without HIGH calorie intake, plus it's easy, filling and fast...:D

One of my great losses after going back to solids is soup. I love soup.. I make soup.. broccoli cheese, vegetable beef, bean soup, chicken noodle, chicken and dumplings, matzo ball... I love soup. But, it is mostly liquid, and I just worry about it being too liquidy.

Another issue I have is with casseroles or things like tuna fish. I am used to making tuna with apples, sweet pickle relish, elbow macaroni, zero fat mayo and tuna. How do I pick the protein out first? then the fruit? the pasta? It is the same with any spaghetti meal or casserole. I just don't know the solution, and I don't want to give up some of our family staples.

Even with a regular meal, it is hard not to use one of the veggies to moisten the meat while I chew.

Suggestions? Solutions?

Dr. Miranda told me to separate the foods until I am use to how much to eat of each, then I can mix then up.
