Quick & Healthy Eats

Standing up for an extended period of time is difficult for the tkr patient during the first couple weeks after having surgery. The first week post-tkr it is highly recommended to have someone else prepare and serve your meals. However, after that you may be on your own. What are you supposed to do to feed yourself without causing too much discomfort? If you are not lucky enough to have someone serve and prepare your meals, here are a couple quick feed ideas:

Cottage cheese. Have a serving of cottage cheese (usually about ½ cup) combined with some chopped tomato and pineapple chunks. For an attractive place setting, place the cottage cheese in the center of the plate and surround it with the tomato on one side and the pineapple on the other side.

I also like mixing some tuna in with the cottage cheese and sprinkling it with garlic powder. Combined with the tomatoes…yumm. Of course, the pineapple is eaten separately. 🙂

A friend of mine enjoys just placing some cottage cheese onto toast and sprinkling it with cinnamon. She likes that for either breakfast, a snack, or a quick pick-me-up after exercising.

Hope this helps.
