Learning New Foods to Cook

After surgery, when I get past all the liquid diet and soft foods, I will need to learn to cook some high protein, low fat, low carb foods.  I won’t eat more then half a cup of food at a time.  I have decided to start trying out some recipes ahead of time. I actually kind of made up this recipe but we really like it.  We used a little tool for turning zucchini into spaghetti noodles.  I sautéed the zucchini and onions and then put them down on the bottom of a pan.  I mixed shredded chicken and salsa and layered that over the zucchini.  Last, I put a small layer of cheese on the top and warmed it up in the oven.  We really liked it.  Will be trying that again in the future.  The dietician said that it will be awhile after surgery before we could eat it because there is a lot of fiber in the zucchini.
