Post Weight Loss Surgery Menus: A day in my pouch

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: Leftover grilled zucchini from dinner and a scrambled egg with a few shavings of Parmesan cheese. This would be a great breakfast for visiting vegetarian pals as an alternative to bacon and eggs.

Lunch: On an egg kick I guess. I made a batch of Egg Foo Young Bites well mushroom-less ones because I didn't have any. I just added a little more green onion and sprouts in the mix, that's the great thing about Bites they are very versatile.These heat up great (I prefer a toaster oven but microwave works too) and keep in the fridge a couple of days.

More Eggface Bites (aka Mini Crustless Quiches)

Dinner: Picked more grapes from my 2 extremely productive vines.

Made a little tidbit party to eat on the patio with some salami, Provolone, Manchego cheese (a favorite) and a little antipasto salad made from roasted red onions and peppers (425℉, sprinkle of olive oil and salt, cook till caramelized and soft), fresh mozzarella and tomatoes. No dressing, just some salt, pepper, and oregano.

Snacks: A Chike High Protein Iced Coffee made into a Mexican Iced Coffee. Packet of Chike, milk, a squirt of Sugar-Free Torani Chocolate syrup, ice, a dash of cinnamon. Blend. Top with Homemade No Sugar Added Whipped Cream and a little more cinnamon.

More days in my pouch.

Your cheese tray is beautiful! I was wondering if you still use SEI Max Protein? I am wondering if the container has changed from the blue to white or if I am not finding the right stuff? Thank you for your posts! They are so helpful!

Thanks Nicole :) Yep I still use it (one of a few) they changed packaging a few times... bags to tubs again I think they are currently white. They have a Facebook page: SEI Nutrition.

How many of the bites and how much of the cheese tray do you actually eat in a sitting?

Michelle "Shelly" said...

Susan, Hmmm thinking back I ate a little hunk of the Manchego, 2 circles of Salami, a circle of provolone, a couple of bites of salad and an hour or so later I had some grapes.

Always get your portion requirements from your medical team don't go by what others eat. We all have different lifestyles and needs.

I was just wondering what salami you use. Of course so much of it is high in fat, that I have not yet found one that was acceptable.

Salami and Provolone was one of these: I don't really eat low fat on purpose... I just balance my day 50% protein, 25% fats, 25% complex carbs.
