Earlier this week on the LivingAfterWLS Blog we talked about enjoy a fresh winter walk and coming home to a hot pot of delicious Mexican-Style Chicken Soup. Soup has truly become a mainstay of my diet and many of you tell me it is an important menu choice in your ongoing post-WLS diet. We've developed and tested numerous soup recipes here at LAWLS so today I share with you a terrific Cooking with Kaye email newsletter from 2012 that features several soup recipes and includes an article pointing you toward fast food and restaurant soups that work with our dietary needs and goals. I hope you enjoy this encore presentation from LivingAfterWLS.
"It is not very often that I hear from someone who struggles with technical issues when eating soup after weight loss surgery. Soup doesn't get "stuck" going down and if we eat too much the discomfort is short-lived (compared to eating too much solid food that is poorly chewed and eaten quickly.) In fact, when post-WLS patients discover soup it often becomes their go-to comfort food. When animal protein is cooked into a soup it is moist and succulent making it easy to chew, swallow, and digest. Cooked vegetables are more readily tolerated by many WLSers compared to raw vegetables. And grains like pearl barley or quinoa are portion controlled and digestible when included as an ingredient in soup."
This reader favorite Cooking with Kaye Newsletter (January 2012) presents delicious soup recipes to keep your pot full and your pouch happy. There are also many great tips for getting the most enjoyment and nutrition from a meal of soup. I hope you enjoy these recipes and make them a part of your dietary rotation.
