Egg Salad for the puree stage
We are bringing to you a simple yet perfect puree recipe that is nutritious and delicious. It’s okay to admit, the puree stage is quite a challenge. Especially for post-op bariatric patients who limit themselves to just applesauce, shakes, or bone broth during this phase.
Thankfully at WLS Afterlife, we are dedicated to offering a variety of recipes that can help bariatric patients during every dietary phase of their weight loss journey.
Our pureed egg salad is a must-try for those that are a fan of regular egg salad. You still get the same great taste, just with a pureed texture. This recipe is incredibly nutritious since eggs, in general, are among the most nutritious foods, containing a variety of vitamins such as Vitamin A, B5, B12, and more. A single boiled egg contains 6 grams of protein and 5 grams of healthy fats.
Overall, we believe everyone in the world should be eating more eggs or at least incorporating eggs into their weight loss diet simply because of their health benefits.
For our pureed egg salad recipe we only added a few additional ingredients to the blended eggs, which were mayonnaise, mustard, and fresh dill. We tried a variety of mustards and mayonnaise but for the video, we used reduced-fat mayonnaise and regular yellow mustard.
Our team did get a chance to try other variations of this recipe by substituting different mustards and mayonnaises. We found out that honey mustard and avocado mayonnaise was a great combo to add more flavor to this puree recipe.
Whatever substitutes you decide to incorporate into the recipe, using fresh dill will definitely bring all the flavors together. When you decide on what ingredients to incorporate, it is important to note that you want to make sure your eggs are well blended. You can ensure that they are by leaving them in your food processor or blender for longer than you normally would just to ensure that your texture is as close to puree as you can get it to.
This dish is absolutely perfect to whip up quickly before or after a workout or to take with you as a lunch for work. No matter how you choose to enjoy this recipe, it is definitely a must-try for those of you transitioning into the puree stage and beyond. After you get beyond the puree stage, try this dish as a dip!
Please note that we always recommend our WLS Afterlife viewers follow their doctor’s dietary guidelines, regardless of our recipe instructions. If we listed an ingredient you were told to avoid, write to us so we may provide you with plenty of other tasty alternatives.
