Grains

  • Check the ingredient list and select those items which have whole grain listed first. Whole grains include whole wheat, brown rice, bulgur, buckwheat, oatmeal, whole-grain cornmeal, whole oats, and whole rye.
  • Look for whole grain cereals with 2 grams or less added sugar.
  • Plain oatmeal is a good hot cereal option. Add sugar-free maple syrup, a flavored protein powder or a non-nutritive sweetener if you like a sweeter taste.
  • Low-carb flour tortillas make great wrap sandwiches. Crisp in a non-stick pan and top with pizza sauce and lean toppings or Mexican toppings for a quick meal.
  • In general thin-sliced whole grain breads, wraps, pita bread, toasted bread, bagel thins, and crackers are best tolerated after surgery.
