Keto through surgery and recovery is tough but it is possible. Here’s how we did it.
Nothing to eat after midnight. David had a high fat dinner of sausage with cheese with bacon before bed.
Because he was fasting, I fasted. Wasn’t about to eat in front of him. He had black coffee until 10:30. I had a coffee and water until he went back for surgery at 2:00. Then I had my Roltino packs. Great fat and protein. It’s prosciutto rolled over cheese and salami rolled over cheese. Delicious!
David had requested my blueberry muffins for recovery, so I had brought those for him. I’d also thrown in a pack of precooked bacon just in case. The muffins were perfect!
Was glad I’d brought food. They offered him graham crackers 😳 and you can see the vending machine options in the photo.
When we got home after 6:00 pm, there was a roast ready that I had put in the crockpot that morning with radishes, onion, and celery. David enjoyed that for dinner and It was nice to avoid cooking.
I did have to plan ahead a bit and I made the muffins ahead of time so he wouldnt have to smell them the morning of surgery. 🙂
But it’s doable!
