Hi everyone. It’s common knowledge that eating healthy can help everyone. However, this is doubly important for us living with a total knee replacement (tkr). Healthy eating speeds the tkr recuperation process.
So…here are some suggestions for quick, healthy eating that can be prepared at home:
Mix some fresh herbs with freshly squeezed juice for a low calorie dressing.
Squeeze an orange over your salad greens.
Spread some natural peanut or almond butter on an apple.
Enjoy a sandwich of tuna and mustard on wholegrain bread. Add lettuce & tomato, if desired.
Have some fresh fruit mixed with plain yogurt.
Spread some hummus on either pita bread, fresh veggies, or an English muffin.
For creamed soup, substitute pureed tofu for heavy cream.
All of these have worked well for me, and I am confident they’d work well for others. Enjoy!
