Flavor Combination Ideas for Bariatric Patients’ High Protein Egg Muffin CupsFor Dr. Shillingford’s gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, and gastric band patients who are looking to cook up some Egg Muffins from this blog post, we thought we’d give you some interesting flavor ideas to keep your taste buds on their toes!

The egg muffins make a good breakfast since they are egg based and high in protein, but really they can be eaten any time of the day which lets you get creative in your flavor profile. Bariatric patients who are at least into Stage 5 of their post op gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, or lap band diet may want to be conservative and only use ingredients they are sure they tolerate well. For surgical weight loss patients who have progressed passed Stage 5 and are more confident in which foods their new stomachs can tolerate, the combinations are seemingly endless.

Flavor Combination Ideas:

  • Broccoli and Cheddar
  • Mushroom and Feta
  • Tomato, Basil, and Mozzarella
  • Ham, Swiss, and Asparagus
  • Spinach and Bacon
  • Red Pepper, Kale, and Sausage
  • Smoked Salmon and Onion
  • Asparagus and Ricotta
  • Artichoke Hearts and Feta
  • Canadian Bacon and Spinach
  • Turkey and Collard Greens
  • Taco meat, Peppers, and Cheddar
  • Zucchini and Goat Cheese
  • Mushroom, Leeks, and Ham
  • Bacon and Tomato
  • Corned Beef, Cabbage, and Mustard
  • Chicken and Mushrooms
  • Crab, Red Pepper, and Onion
  • Ham and Olive
  • Cheddar and Green Chilis

The combinations are only limited by your taste and imagination (along with your new stomach). You can make use of leftovers, like roasted chicken or deli ham, or even last night’s leftover vegetables. These are great to make ahead and freeze for when you need a quick meal. Having a high protein, vegetable packed meal in your freezer that’s easy to defrost is a great idea, especially if you are one who used to fall back on eating out or ordering in. Instead, just grab one or two of these delicious high protein egg muffins to help you stick to your post bariatric surgery diet and maximize your weight loss.
