I haven't had this done to me but I just spent the last hour lookig it up. I found I hope what you were looking for. Foods to Choose on a Phase 2 “Blenderized”/ Puree Diet After Gastric Bypass Food Choose Avoid Meat, protein and protein substitutes Pureed fish, tuna, poultry, or pork; low fat cottage cheese, low-fat or non-fat cheese, baby-food meats (all types); mashed or pureed tofu, pureed egg or egg substitute; blended low fat casseroles with soft vegetables; Crunchy peanut butter, all others Milk and Milk Products Fat-free (skim) or 1% milk; sugar free or low fat yogurt (approximately 80 calories per serving) Chocolate milk, sweetened condensed milk, 2% or whole milk, ice cream Fruits and Vegetables Applesauce, pureed banana, mashed potato or other fruit/ vegetables without seeds or hulls that have been pureed All others Bread and Cereals Hot cereals cooked in milk (oatmeal, grits, cream of wheat) Bread and crunchy cereals Other Sugar free gelatin or popsicles, sugar free fat free pudding/custard Chewing gum, sweets If you are having trouble tolerating pureed foods try slowing the speed of your eating or decreasing portion size slightly. To blenderize foods: first put foods in a blender, then add liquid such as skim milk, broth, fat free gravy or diet juice then blend until smooth. Sample Phase 2 menu Breakfast: 1 cup “Carb Conscious” Carnation Instant Breakfast with skim milk & 1/3 cup powdered nonfat milk Snack #1: ½ cup cottage cheese Lunch: ½ cup fat-free refried beans 1 ounce melted fat-free / reduced fat cheese Snack #2: Blended sugar-free yogurt Supper: (Blended) ¼ cup meat ½ cup low-fat cream soup 2-4 Tbsp skim milk powder Provides approximately 60 g protein and 750 calorie
