1 cup sliced strawberries
1 Tablespoon cheese of choice (feta is very good!)

Interested in more salads that are delicious and comfortable to eat after WLS? Check out Cooking with Kaye - Kaye Bailey's new cookbook that dedicates an entire chapter to eating salad after WLS. It's harder than you may think!

"A trip to the salad bar after weight loss surgery sometimes feels more like a trek through a minefield than a healthy meal solution. Weight loss surgery procedures cause a decreased production of digestive enzymes: the result is a compromised ability to digest certain raw fruits and vegetables. Some people report extreme gas, bloating, and digestive discomfort after eating salad greens and other raw vegetables. For the first three years after my gastric bypass I could not eat any greens or raw vegetables because of the digestive upset they caused. Now, more than a decade later, there are days salad sits well and other days salad makes my pouch very grumpy. I know that many of my WLS Neighbors experience the same Moody Pouch Syndrome (MPS). From our collective experience I’ve learned if we compose our salads with a purposeful protein-fat-carbohydrate ratio we are more likely to enjoy them without suffering MPS. "
