A day in my pouch

My yesterday in post weight loss surgery eating...

Breakfast: Started my day with Strawberries topped with a dollop of Ricotta Cheese, a drizzle of SF Maple Syrup and a sprinkle of Toasted Almonds. Simple but delicious.

Lunch: Leftovers and more strawberries, I'm on a kick.

Pink Box (top left): Leftover Grilled Zucchini
Orange Box (top right): Shelly's Greek Yogurt Dip for dipping steak (Greek yogurt with a dash of Greek Seasoning, Salt & Pepper)
Blue Box (bottom left): Leftover Tri Tip
Green Box (bottom right): Strawberries

More Eggface Bentos - lots of lunch ideas.

Dinner: Easiest dinner known to man. Easy to prepare and best of all easy to clean-up... Fish Foil Packets.

Shelly's Citrus Tilapia and Squash

1 fillet of Tilapia (any firmer white fish will do: Cod, Halibut, Tilapia, Orange Roughy)
1 Green Onion, chopped
1/2 a small Zucchini, thinly sliced (I used Mexican Squash)
1 Tablespoon Ponzu Sauce (Citrus-seasoned soy sauce found near soy sauce)
1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
a few twists of Black Pepper
Aluminum foil

Ingredients listed are for one packet multiply it for how many packets you are making. Place all ingredients in center of a piece of heavy duty foil (if you are using the $1 store stuff double it) Fold the foil over and seal each packet.

If you can't find Ponzu Sauce (it's near soy sauce) a squirt of lime and soy sauce will work. Look for it though. It's yummy. I like a little extra sprinkle of Ponzu on the fish after it's cooked too and it makes a yummy salad dressing.

BBQ 15 minutes in covered grill or place packets on a baking sheet and bake at 400 for 20 minutes. Open packets carefully steam burns are not fun.

Snacks: Too much coffee, a packet of Cruncha Ma-Me Edamame Veggie Snack, and a few Frozen Yogurt Protein Drops while watching New Girl.

I haven't had a chance to try the Cruncha Mame snacks yet, but they sound good! I found a recipe for them, similar to your roasted crunchy chickpeas. Mmmm! Do you know of an in-store source?

They are addictive. Cheaper online (link in post) but I found them originally at my local health food store Sprouts.
