    Liquid Diet Foods

    Other than the obvious will someone suggest foods for a liquid diet in prep for surgery

    If you aren't trying to lose weight, I'd suggest a product like Ensure Plus. These are literally made for people who cannot ingest solids on the long term so are perfectly safe as solid meal replacements. They have all the nutrients that you would need, just make sure that you drink at least 4 a day to maintain healthy weight.

    Check to see if it's okay to consume the following:

    Hemp protein powder (high in fiber! good amount of protein...and NO you will not get high!)

    Whey protein powder (no fiber; considered dairy, but very easy to digest and has a great amino acid profile)

    Any protein powder or protein powder blend, in general! The vegan ones I like are pricey, but I love getting them every once in a while: . (I personally stay away from soy because it's hard to digest and causes stomach upset in me)

    Then, blend it with the following:

    Almond milk (I love unsweetened vanilla flavor; found in the dairy section of your supermarket in half gallon containers)

    Hemp milk (found in shelf stable cartons at health food store; I actually love the taste of this!)

    Coconut milk (found in half gallon containers at supermarket's dairy section)
