You could try pureed bean soups like split pea soup or white bean carrot soup. You simmer your beans and veggies in water or vegetable broth, and once they are soft, add the soup to a blender and blend to get a smooth creamy soup. It is easier to eat more beans and vegetables this way if you have a smaller stomach. Tofu is also easier to get down more of. I do tofu puddings for breakfast...blend a block of silken tofu in your blender and add a pinch of sweetener and either a banana or other soft fruit or just some cocoa powder or lemon juice and blend. It isn't too filling and you get about 24 grams of protein per block of silken tofu, and loads of iron and calcium. Sometimes instead I use 1/2 block of refrigerated tofu variety and still get 16 grams of protein for that.
If you end up having to resort to smoothies with protein powder, there are quite a few vegan ones on the market now, everything from pea protein powder to hemp protein or rice based protein powder.
Eating lots of smaller meals instead of three big meals seems to be a strategy I have heard of for people in your situation.
In the end, only kindness matters. - Jewel
