4-6 Months After

Modified Regular

a.k.a  your “new normal”

4 MONTHS AFTER SURGERY:

  • Crunchy fruits and vegetables, including salads – some foods like apple skins, coconut and some nuts always need to be avoided.  These foods can’t be chewed to applesauce consistency.
  • Lean Pork

 

6 MONTHS AFTER SURGERY: Beef.    Limit to  1-2 times per week to keep diet low in saturated fats, especially if you have heart disease

Tip:  Avoid high fat meats (ex: bologna, bacon, pepperoni, ground chuck) and fried foods.

Tip:  Think about starting pork and beef with a meatball.  Cook in broth or tomato sauce for moist, tender meatballs.
