Mom is mistaken on protein packed being needed. Mono meal/smoothies will be easiest on his digestive system. O.J. with the pulp is high in calories and will give him lots of vit. C which speeds healing. A cantaloupe smoothie would be easy on digestion too. Just make sure he has not had any slow digesting foods within 8 hours. If he is eating any cooked, it should be last meal of the day.
parents aren't going to have time to juice oranges. Is there a brand that they can buy for OJ?
thanks much for your suggestions.
If they can buy fresh squeezed, our mainstream grocery stores have fresh juice for sale, not organic but at least fresh, I would do that.
it was the doc who requested the protein smoothies, not mom. I changed the blurb above to reflect this.
any fruit with hemp seeds or hemp milk. hemp contains all 21 amino acids and is 33% protein.
also spirulina is very high in protein.
also you can check this out if you wish
yes, this will give him protein + calories
10,000 calories? Really? That seems kind of shocking.
10 Bananas + Spinach + Blend
10 Dates + water + frozen strawberries + blend for a really nice "milk"shake
Blend some grapes for a nice grape juice
I second the blended melons, though it'll be hard to get enough cals from those.
Blessings go out to this poor boy. Hope he heals well!
