The sun finally popped out yesterday afternoon for a few hours so I decided to take advantage of it and bring dinner in my super cool Bento Box to the park to watch it set.
Blue Box (top left): Yellow Pepper Strips and Baby Carrots
Green Box (top right): Colby Jack Cheese Cubes & Steamed Edamame
Pink Box (bottom left): Shelly's BBQ Saucy Meatballs
Bottom right: Tribe Single Serve Hummus (love these)
I get the little Hummus 100 calorie single serve containers at Costco in a box of 16/2 oz. cups for $4.99 (refrigerated section)
More Eggface Bentos
Came home for dessert. If you love those Chinese Almond Cookies you will LOVE this. A new favorite...
Shelly's Almond Cookie Protein Ice Cream
1 cup Vanilla Soy Milk (or Regular Milk)
2 scoops of Vanilla Protein Powder
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Vanilla Jello Pudding Powder, dry
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Almond Torani Syrup
dash of Cinnamon
2 Tablespoons Almonds, slivered
4-6 Sugar Free Almond Cookies, crushed (I use these)
Mix together milk, protein, pudding, syrup and cinnamon. I used this gadget to mix it up. It makes it airy and lump free. If you don't have one just toss it in a blender on super high. You want it fluffy almost double in size. Pour into ice cream maker. Follow your machine's instructions for freezing. 5 minutes before done add nuts & crushed cookies.
You can eat it right away it is soft serve-ish but I like to scoop it into a tupperware and put it in the freezer to set for an hour. I topped it with Sugar Free Land o Lakes Whipped Cream and a few slivered almonds.
Dinner was nice. Not really dinner-ish. More snacky. I really wasn't in the mood to cook so I just made up a bunch of fun snacks making sure there was enough protein. Sometimes I do that especially if I'm alone. It was a really mixed up International meal... Middle Eastern Hummus, Japanese Edamame, Chinese Almond Cookie Ice Cream. Mixed up but very tasty!
Oh almost forgot... if you are on Twitter (lastest greatest Social Networking site) be sure to join (free) our Weight Loss Surgery Twibe.
By joining you make it easy for other WLS tweeps (tweeps = peeps who twitter) to find and follow you and of course it's easy for you to find them. Plus if you want all the weight loss surgery tweeps to see a tweet you have written just label your tweet with the hashtags #wls or #weightlosssurgery or #weight loss surgery or simply use those words within your tweets.
Starting a twibe (Twitter based tribe) seemed like a much simpler way then trying to mention all my weight loss surgery tweeps on Follow Friday and hopefully everyone will meet someone new.
If you have any Q's feel free to send me a tweet.
