Sample four of the many recipes found inside:
Sautéed Lemon Asparagus with Almonds
Asparagus is a fresh spring vegetable with few calories and a gorgeous green hue. Here it is sautéed with complementary bright and nutty flavors of lemon and almonds to bring out its tender crunch.
Warm Zucchini and Farro Salad with Toasted Walnuts
Revel in this dish’s texture combinations: roasted zucchini, ever-so-chewy farro, and decidedly crunchy walnuts. If you’re eating in Phase 3, omit the walnuts.
Double Berry Burst Shake
This shake probably includes items that you already have in your pantry. What could be easier than “shopping” in your own cabinets? These ingredients are post-op staples that will make delicious shakes over and over again.
Not-So-Spicy Pork Larb
Larb isusually very spicy, very tangy, very fresh, and made with a very long list of ingredients. This stripped-down version captures the interplay between the ingredients but is perfectly suited for a post-surgery diet.
