Feeding tube nutrition suggestions needed
I can not open my mouth to eat or drink so use a g tube. Everything has to be ground with liquid in a blender so that it will flow through a glass cylinder that looks like a turkey baster. I am trying not to use prepared drinks except for Ensure Plus and Electrolytes. I need to gain some weight as I have plateaued so am counting calories but am having challenges finding high calorie things that can be added with liquids that go through the tube. There is only so much liquid I can comfortably consume. Breakfast is usually a cup of oatmeal or cereal with protein powder and some fruit with milk filling a six cup blender. Lunch is often four eggs and a cup of vegetables and water. Dinner is a cup of boiled chicken or fish and a cup of vegetables and broth. I have found the fat in meat clogs the tube. I often add peanut butter or ice cream but need some other options. I appreciate any suggestions.
