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. Yesterday's menu...
Breakfast: I had a few errands and appointments early in the AM so I hit Starbucks. Currently there are 2 food items I will eat... the Classic Oatmeal (I add cinnamon from the milk bar and some of the nuts and dried fruit, no sugar) and the Spinach Feta Egg White Whole Wheat Wrap (I ask for it double cooked, it gets super crispy, easier to eat, single cooked is too doughy and lays heavy, double cooked is the way to go, rarely can eat the whole thing but I put a major dent in it) that's what I had yesterday. Only thing about eating at Bux... I can't have a latte unless I'm there for a really long time (I can't drink for at least 45 minutes or so after eating, physically I can't, it makes me Mt. Vesuvius urpy, it's a post weight loss surgery thing.)
Lunch: I almost hate to say this. I know so many of you are in the deep freeze right now. I umm well... I ate a late lunch outside on the patio. If you say it really fast it's not that bad. You know you are all welcome to move closer and then I'd get to see some of you more. I had a ton of computer projects to finish. In between working I ate the contents of my bento box lunch (made little cucumber, meat & cheese sandwiches) and pet a neighborhood
kitty that sunbathes in my yard during the day. We don't know it's name
and think it lives a few doors down. We call it "Mr. Fezziwig" not sure really if it's a Mr. or Mrs. it's huge and very fuzzy (think small sheep) so parts are not visible but it's
making me want to adopt a kitty of my own again.

Orange Box (bottom right): Shelly's Toasted Coconut Pudding
More Bento Box lunches, FAQ's and an Online Source for them
Dinner: Cucumber and Tomato Salad (Cucumber, Tomato, Artichoke Hearts, a sprinkle of Shredded Cheese, Oregano, Salt & Pepper) and I made a batch of my Egg Foo Young Bites. I think these might be my favorite of all the Bites I make. Mmm but those Patty Melt Bites are really really yummy too.
More Eggface Bites (aka Mini Crustless Quiches)
Snacks: Too much coffee and a sliced Honeycrisp Apple and Dip while I watched TV.
Shelly's Peanut Butter Cup Yogurt Dip
2 oz. Greek Yogurt, plain 2%
1 Tablespoon Powdered Peanut Butter
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Torani Syrup (I used SF Chocolate, any will do)
Mix till well blended. A healthy Reese's Peanut Butter Cup... oh yeah!
