You do have to be careful, especially at first, but once you've healed from surgery you can introduce things into your diet in small amounts. Chew VERY WELL. It's kind of an individual thing but you will be able to eat a good amount of those things. I stay away from nuts always, and I don't like things like seafood or mushrooms, so I don't worry about
those...but fruits are usually good if you don't have tooo many seeds.
PS Who eats bamboo shoots?! Are we pandas??
