My Gallbladder Removed Safe Foods

I recently had my gallbladder removed! Here is a list of foods that are gentle on the digestive system and products that have helped me through.

I have had absolutely no problems digesting pretzels and have been enjoying them with fat free cream cheese!

Pam No-Stick Cooking Spray Simply Coconut Oil
Pam No-Stick Cooking Spray Simply Coconut Oil

I've been using this fat free spray for warming/crisping up tortillas and for spraying on air popped popcorn so that the sea salt sticks! Great for many different culinary used where you need a bit of oil.

Flonase Allergy Relief Spray

What does this have to do with surgery? The last thing you want is to be sneezing or blowing your nose a lot when your stomach is healing. I use this every morning to clear my sinuses and prevent painful sneezing!

Bigelow Peppermint Herb Tea

A must have for settling and soothing the stomach. I make this double strength, pour it over ice and add a touch of agave syrup for sweetness. Crisp, refreshing and comforting.

Goya® Black Beans Premium

I can't find the brand I recently bought but have enjoyed these before! Great for simple and light wraps with corn and sweet potatoes!

When my medical ice pack from the hospital started leaking I was happy to have these. Fill with ice and wrap in a thin towel. Place on your stomach for reducing swelling.

I like to spray some coconut oil spray on these and heat them in a pan till lightly crispy then top with black beans, fat free sour cream and corn.

Philadelphia Fat Free Cream Cheese

Fat free foods are a must for a while. I love cheese and this is about as good as it gets right now. I've been enjoying it on sourdough toast and pretzels.

Breakstone's Small Curd 2% Milkfat Lowfat Cottage Cheese

Low-fat and the perfect size snack for a stomach that can't handle much food. Some people may have a hard time with dairy though.

I've been enjoying these with lettuce, black beans, corn and sweet potatoes. Low in fat and easy to wrap up healthy veggies in for a small meal.

MiraLAX Laxative Powder
MiraLAX Laxative Powder

After surgery I went 4 days without a BM due to all the pain medication I was on. Being a very regular person I was afraid to wait much longer. This did the trick in under 24 hours and got me back on track. No stomach cramping. Gentle and effective.

I wanted to make sure everything kept flowing normally after surgery. Glad I bought these for some extra fiber. They taste amazing and are the perfect size when your stomach can't handle much food.

Equate Ibuprofen Tablets

After the prescription pain meds wreaked havoc on my intestinal track I switched over to these to help eliminate pain for a couple of days. As always, they worked great.

I love beets and so does my stomach! Pickled foods are good for the gut and taste great too. These are my favorite brand of beets!

Reed's Crystallized Ginger
Reed's Crystallized Ginger

One of the best remedies for upset stomach! I've been having problems that don't seem to be gallbladder related and crystallized ginger is always a big help in soothing the stomach. Eat one-three pieces for relief!

Gatorade Fruit Punch Sports Drink 32 oz
Gatorade Fruit Punch Sports Drink 32 oz

I mixed this with water for the first few days to make sure I was getting electrolytes to prevent muscle cramping. Not sure if the pain meds were causing the cramping legs but this seemed to help!

Honey Nut Cheerios Cereal

Yes, I like sweet things and this fixes my sweet craving. Simple to eat out of the box...because who cares after you've had surgery.

Canada Dry Ginger Ale

Ginger ale helps settle the stomach. I personally like this classic ginger ale as it's not too spicy and not too sweet.

Snack Pack Butterscotch Pudding

These are the perfect size snack for when your stomach can't handle much from bloating and feeling of fullness after surgery. The Tapioca is good too!
