Now that you have had Bariatric surgery, is everything too sweet for your taste?
Don’t worry as that is very common. Surgery involving the GI tract makes makes the taste buds go crazy and while they eventually calm down, we still have to make food choices while things often have a metallic, bitter, or most often an intensely sweet taste.
If you are tired of sweet protein options, Inspire PURE Unflavored Whey Protein Isolate will help you. Small amounts of liquid PURE sneak a little whey protein isolate into foods that do hold appeal or still taste good to you.
1. Using a small pot on stovetop, heat 1/2 cup Amy’s Tomato Bisque, Wolfgang Puck’s Tomato Basil or Butternut, Progresso Lentil, all excellent supermarket brands of canned soup (of course the best soup is homemade).
2. While soup’s on, place a half scoop of PURE into 2 tablespoons water in a small cup or glass, give a quick stir and leave undisturbed for 20 to 30 seconds to allow the protein to melt into a smooth liquid.
3. Pour the soup into a bowl and stir the liquid PURE into the soup a teaspoon at a time.
The amount you use depends on how much soup you use for your portion. Use to your taste so the liquid protein doesn’t change the flavor or texture of your soup.
HOT TIP! Since bariatric taste buds are super sensitive, grate a little Parmesan cheese over your hot soup. Even the most sensitive tastes won’t know the protein is there.
Your soup is super delicious and now full of protein to fuel your bariatric journey.
