A day in my pouch is a series of blog posts (I try and post them every few days) to show what a typical daily menu looks like in my post weight loss surgery world.
Breakfast: I made a Steak & Egg Bowl. I sauteed a few Mushrooms, chopped up one slice of Boar's Head Low Sodium Roast Beef and tossed that in a splash of Worcestershire Sauce, that went on top of a scrambled egg and a sprinkle off cheese topped it all. A protein packed start to the day.
Lunch: Carrots, Cucumbers and Greek Yogurt with a sprinkle of Greek Seasoning.
Dinner: I had a gift card to Rubio's
floating around my purse for awhile so I decided to use it for dinner.
Those of you on the west coast (locations in CA, AZ, NV, UT and CO, it's
a San Diego original) know Rubio's, those that don't it's a fast casual
Mexican restaurant famous for it's fish tacos. I ordered their Balsamic and Roasted Veggies Salad.
It normally comes with Grilled Chicken but I subbed Grilled Tilapia
(they also have Grilled Shrimp, Salmon, or Mahi Mahi) and asked for the
dressing on the side. I used a little but I prefer a squeeze of lime and
some of their chipotle salsa. I split this with my Mum and it was
plenty for both of us. So good. I love when restaurant menus are available online
because I can plan out the changes I want to make to a dish to make
them healthier choices. Here are some other tips that have helped me
when eating out post weight loss surgery.
Snacks: Lots of coffee and a bowl of Butter Pecan Protein Ice Cream. One of my favorites.
It was a delicious day. More days in my pouch.
Be sure to toss your name in the hat for the final week
