Are you waving goodbye to your postop liquid diet and ready to say hello to the world of soft foods?!?!
Every bariatric program is different in their recommendations for how to progress your diet. For my patients, once they hit the two week mark, they can begin introducing foods like scrambled eggs, refried beans and soft tuna or chicken salad with canned meat and condiment only. And they’ve never been so excited!!!!
Once they’ve had a good run with those “starter foods” they can move into eggs anyway they’d like. That’s where I would put this recipe.
While it’s cooked in a marinara sauce, the only food to really focus on is the soft egg. Chances are you wouldn’t be able to eat the whole thing…but MY GOODNESS have you ever been so excited for bites of an egg?!
If you are further out than 2 1/2 weeks from your weight-loss surgery, or you’re a preop Gastric Sleeve or Gastric Bypass patient you can eat these eggs with the sauce scooped over the top and served with turkey bacon (which is how I ate it). We loved the flavor as we ate it for brunch and thought to ourselves “is it normal to have Italian food for brunch??” Either way it was tasty! I would certainly make this again for a dinner too.
