Notes

Pureed

  • Not recommended

Soft Diet:

  • Prepare chicken as normal. Steam peppers and onions instead of sauteeing them. Omit pineapple and consider mango instead if your surgery center allows fruit at this stage.

Regular:

  • Serve as is. Consider serving with brown rice for your family.
