A day in my pouch

This what my yesterday looked like in post weight loss surgery eating...

Breakfast: A make several of these parfaits and saran wrap them so I have grab and go, healthy breakfasts or high protein snacks during the week.


Shelly's Raspberry Almond Yogurt Parfait

3 oz. Greek Yogurt (I use plain, 2%)
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Torani Syrup (I used SF Almond)
a sprinkle of Toasted Almonds
a few fresh Raspberries

Lunch: Melted Cold Cut Rollups. Slice of Ham (I like Low Sodium Boars Head brand), 1/2 a Cheesestick and leftover steamed Asparagus (I'm on an asparagus kick right now) rolled up and sauteed till cheese is melty. These are great when you are jonesing for a grilled cheese. It's great with turkey too.


Dinner: I was planning on making Salmon Packets but I was just not feeling it. The salmon is cooked from frozen so I figured I'd just move that plan to tomorrow and I went with a go-to dinner for me... Frittata. Breakfast for dinner basically. I sauteed a few mushrooms, chopped up a leftover slice of ham I had from lunch, beat up a few eggs, sprinkled some cheese and herbs on the whole thing, start on the stove-top, finish under the broiler, cook till golden and viola. I had a wedge with some little cherry tomatoes (salt, pepper, oregano) I bought Saturday at the Farmer's Market.


It was delicious.

Snacks: Too much coffee and I ate a few of these Pizza Skewers while watching this show about a lady that turned her house into a Bunny Museum. It's in Pasadena, CA. It was a little OCD/Hoarder-ish freaky but the lady that ran it was sweet and I can imagine kids in the area must love to go see the bunny house well... ummm... all except the freeze dried taxidermied bunnies. Her and her husband actually live there, surrounded floor to ceiling by bunnies. Every thing in the house from the knives and forks, to telephone, to the toilet seat cover is bunny themed. He's totally on-board with this bunny obsession in fact, they give each other a bunny a day as a token of their love. Proof I guess that there is someone out there for every one, so let your bunny shaped freak flag fly ;) I guess.

Ooh, I do turkey rollups sometimes, but never thought to heat them - I'll have to try that, thanks!

And the bunny house has me a little freaked out - wow.

Wow, you sure don't eat very much in one day! I eat little meals all through the day, but my breakfast and lunch are much larger than yours! I'd starve on what you eat, and I've had the same surgery you had (2 years on Thursday!). I cut my weight in half to now at 146... and holding steady!

Would being hooked up to an espresso IV be considered "too much coffee"?

@Chris: It was freaky LOL. I think I want to go.

Caron, Some days are hungrier than others and then I do 2 snacks. Yesterday I was out and about and coffee was my fuel.

Jack, LOL sounds just right to me ;)
