Good Choices for Post-Surgery Diet?

I am working on getting some things for my post-surgery diet. I know we have to do a liquid diet for two weeks after surgery. Can anyone recommend protein shakes that taste decent? What else did you all “eat” these first couple of weeks? I see that juices and broths are allowed. Did you find anything easier or harder on your stomach?

For protein shakes, I love Vega’s all-in-one plant based protein powder.  I haven’t had surgery yet, so I can’t speak to which broths and juices were easy on my stomach.

You’ll be diluting the juice and broth dramatically in the beginning, so it’ll be more like flavored water than anything else.  You’ll be on clear liquids at first, so I think white grape juice and apple juice are about as wild as it gets.  You’ll be diluting your juice with water too of course.  I got low-sodium chicken broth and watered it down as well.  Heavily acidic juices are harder on my stomach.  I bounce back and forth between different protein shakes.  I usually just get what’s on sale.
