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. Yesterday's menu...

Breakfast: You guys are going to love the new Mocha flavor of Chike Nutrition High Protein Iced Coffee. It's so good and should be available for purchase soon. Yesterday I made it in the blender with ice and soy milk and a sprinkle of cinnamon for a sort of Mexican Chocolate Coffee Frappe. Delicious.

Shelly's Mexican Mocha Frappe

8 oz. Milk or Water (I used Soy Milk)
2 scoops Chike High Protein Iced Coffee - Mocha
a few dashes of Cinnamon
a few cubes of Ice

Blend on high. Top with No Sugar Added Homemade Whipped Cream and a sprinkle of Cinnamon.

Lunch: Another great Trader Joe's find: Citrus Chicken Salad. Found in the refrigerator salad section. $3.99 Grilled chicken breast, green papaya, red and green cabbage shreds, daikon radish, green onion, carrot, comes with a Thai dressing and a lime wedge to squeeze over. Super refreshing. This will be a repeat purchase. It's delicious. 110 calories without the dressing, 220 with. I use about 1/2 the dressing packet and the lime.



Dinner: Fish Foil Packet. One of my favorite dinners. I change them up based on what I have on hand last night's was: Yellow Squash, Green Onion, a drizzle of Olive Oil, Tilapia (any fish will work), a dollop of Roasted Tomato Salsa. Toss it on the grill and cook covered for 20-25 minutes depending on thickness of the fish.


More Foil Packet Dinners  

Snacks: Too much coffee as usual and some of these delicious Lime and Sea Salt Almonds I bought at the Leucadia Farmer's Market (Sunday AM) It's another great farmer's market in the San Diego area. Check it out if you are a local.
