I'm wondering what foods are recommended post-knee surgery. Unfortunately, I'll probably be doped up on lortab or oxy, but only as needed and not necessarily as prescribed. I'll also be limited in the amount of time I can spend upright, so cooking time is an issue. The simpler, the better.
My concern is appetite and digestion - getting proper amounts of lean meat protein and fibrous carbs. I've had surgery like this prior to going Paleo and I had very little appetite. With the medications, digestion proved to be, uh, interesting.
I make Paleo veggie cookies, so they will likely be my pill-popping food to ease digestion, but are there any specific food(s) or drink(s) recommended?
