What can I eat on a liquid diet after surgery?
After you undergo surgery, your doctor will give you key guidelines on how to safely recover after the procedure. One universal guideline regardless of your medical history is that post-recovery you must stay on a liquid diet.
Some great solutions for eating on a liquid diet include drinking water, diluted fruit juices, tea and coffee without milk and cream, and to ensure you get protein in your diet, protein powder. However, not all protein powders are created alike. It is a requirement that the protein powder you choose has enough protein per serving in order to meet your nutritional intake daily.
