Post Weight Loss Surgery Menus: A day in my pouch

A day in my pouch is a series of blog posts to show what a typical daily menu looks like in my post weight loss surgery world. Here's what I ate yesterday...

Breakfast: I made Breakfast "Tacos" scrambled eggs, topped with cheese and picante sauce, and taco-fied it with a slice of low sodium ham. You need a knife and fork for this one. I left the breakfast dishes and I head over to the Farmer's Market to beat the rain the weather forecast said we were going to get yesterday... we actually got the rain today. I picked up a nice assortment of fruits and veggies for the week ahead... a spaghetti squash I've been craving that Sausage and Ricotta Stuffed Squash I made a couple weeks ago, cauliflower, tomatoes, avocados, strawberries, apples, pears, hmmm there was something else... oh yeah a variety of onions... green, red, yellow... I'm covered for onions. Our market is all year long, rain or shine, the only days it closes are the two weekends of the year when the town holds the Rod Run, a vintage car show... that's next Saturday as a matter of fact. I'm going to have to seek out a market in another town next week.

Lunch: The Edamame and Salmon Salad I posted yesterday. Sooo good. If you don't like salmon you could totally do the same thing with grilled chicken, leftover cooked steak, shrimp, tuna... tofu. Whatever you like.

Dinner: I didn't really want to cook. I actually thought I might head out for dinner somewhere. I have been craving steak. I got too comfortable (aka holey sweats and braless.) Well and the avocado and tomato was sitting on the counter just calling to me to turn them into a salad. I made a sort of Caprese Salad with Avocado. Mexico meets Italy... Avocado, Tomato, Fresh Mozzarella, a dollop of Pesto Sauce, Oregano, Salt & Pepper to taste. The juices from the tomato and pesto mixed together to make a great "dressing." I love dinners like this.

Snacks: Too much coffee and I picked up some Strawberries at the Farmer's Market. I froze a basket for protein shakes but a few are destined for desserts like this... dipped in No Sugar Added Homemade SF French Vanilla Whipped Cream.

Hi Michelle, I really enjoy your blog. Could you tell me more about the coffee you drink? Do you have soy milk or protein powder in your coffee?

Michelle "Shelly" said...

Hi Lisa, Thank you :) Coffee: Fully leaded with a splash of soy milk and SF Vanilla Torani usually.

Do you buy your pesto or make it?

Michelle "Shelly" said...

This was store bought (Trader Joe's. I make it in the summer when basil is super cheap and plentiful)

This question doesn't relate to this post whatsoever but I'm going to be having the gastric sleeve in April but plan on moving from my home state to another state at the end of May. What do you think about that ? Is it too fast to move from where I had surgery??

Michelle "Shelly" said...

Yeah too soon IMHO... lack of nutrients makes us wiped out a bit, won't be cleared to lift anything much... unless you got everything packed and done before (hard but doable) and you had a lot of help.... A lot.
