Are You Struggling With Taste Changes After Bariatric Surgery? Here Are Quick And Easy Ways To Get Your Protein!

After weight loss surgery some patients experience changes in their sense of taste. Many patients report a heightened sensitivity to sweet, salty, sour, or bitter tastes. Sensitivity to sweet flavors can be frustrating, cause anxiety, or even result in deficiencies, if the patient is not able to meet their nutrition needs.

UNJURY Can Help!

If you are experiencing an aversion to sweet flavors try adding Chocolate or Vanilla UNJURY to unsweetened items. For example unsweetened almond milk and plain, non-fat Greek yogurt are good alternatives.

If you notice that smells are bothering you, try using extracts, herbs, and spices to mask any bothersome odors that affect your food choices. Add orange, raspberry, or peppermint extract to your UNJURY shakes. A sprinkle of cinnamon or nutmeg can also improve smells. In savory dishes, using fresh herbs like chives, cilantro, basil, or thyme can add a refreshing flair and aroma.

Consider the temperature of what you are consuming. After weight loss surgery, some patients tolerate cold items better, while others prefer them room temperature or warm. Keep in mind that warm foods will give off more of an odor. Experiment with different temperatures and see what tastes best to you. You can blend UNJURY with ice, mix into warm liquids up to 140 degrees, or easily add into a variety of dishes that can be served at room temperature.

If you prefer to avoid sweet flavors all together, focus on savory options. UNJURY Chicken Soup and Unflavored Protein are great alternatives to sweeter flavors! Including a scoop/packet of either Chicken Soup or Unflavored UNJURY provides 21 grams of protein. These products are so versatile. They can be added to a number of foods and beverages for added variety.

Here are some delicious, high-protein, savory options:
UNJURY Chicken Soup in warm water (under 140 degrees)
UNJURY Pasta Sauce
UNJURY Mashed Potatoes
UNJURY Vegetable Dip
UNJURY Unflavored in Warm or Iced Coffee
UNJURY Greek Yogurt
