This sounds perfect for Thanksgiving morning (coming soon here in Canada!)
PS I have your cauliflower/sausage bake in the oven right now. I'm a low carb freak right now so to lower them, I used a mix of ground flax and hemp protein to coat the cauliflower. Hope it works!

Do you drink coffee? Also I'm having a hard time getting all my water in. I'm really not very creative so I'm enjoying some of your recipes especially the the cauliflour one. My whole family liked it.
Any tips will be welcome.
Thanks
Debbie

Anita, Please let me know about the coating. I allow myself 1/4 cup and below in recipes but would love a tasty alternative with more health benefits. ~M

Debbie, I drink waaaaaay too much coffee. It's sometimes the only liquid I consume in a day soooo bad. Please don't follow my lead. I do a bit better in the summer with water but not much. ~M

Thanks Michelle. Should I call OH and try to have them walk me through the stages. I love this website but I get a little confused at times.
Thanks

Hey Debbie,

No I'd call my Dr and get a name of a nutritionist he works with.

OH has some online eating guidelines http://www.obesityhelp.com/forums/rny/nutritional-guidelines-after-roux-en-y-gastric-bypass-surgery.html but everyones plan is different. Best bet is to find a nutritionist familiar with the post-op diet/needs and get a plan set up for you based on your lifestyle.

Michelle, the flax/hemp coating worked great! My 28 yr old son ate almost the whole casserole by himself. I managed to rescue a little bit to have for lunch, I guess next time I'm making a double batch.
Thanks for all your great recipe ideas!

Thanks for sharing your list. I need to keep the little pleasurable things in life in mind. I think I'll start a list of my own.
