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: This tastes just like melted Pistachio Ice Cream and 30 grams of protein start to the day. Can't beat that.

Shelly's Lucky Leprechaun St. Patrick's Shake

1 Premier Protein RTD (Ready to Drink) Vanilla Protein Shake
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Pistachio Pudding Mix, dry
a few ice cubes

Whiz on high till frappe like. I topped it with No Sugar Added Homemade Whipped Cream and a sprinkle of non-pareils because they make me smile.

More Eggface Protein Shakes and Smoothies

Lunch: Of the 50 or so variations of Bites (aka Mini Crustless Quiches) on this blog I never made one based on all the yummy fillings in a Chinese restaurant Egg Roll till now. I have said it before I know but these might be the best Egg Bites I have ever made.

Shelly's Egg Roll Bites

5 Eggs, beaten
1/2 lb. Pork Sausage Meat, Ground
2 Tablespoon Sherry
1 teaspoon Garlic, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons Ginger, minced
1/2 a bag (14 oz) Coleslaw Mix (Cabbage & Carrots)
2 Green Onions, diced
2 Tablespoons Teriyaki Sauce (I used Soy Vay)

Saute sausage meat till no pink is seen. Add ginger, garlic and sherry and cook about a minute. Set aside and allow to cool slightly. Break it up into small pieces. I snip it up with kitchen shears... the best invention in the world. OK maybe not best but top 100 ;) In another pan saute slaw mix, green onions and teriyaki sauce till slightly softened. Set aside to cool slightly.

Mix all ingredients together. Spoon into lightly greased (Pam non-stick spray works great for this) mini muffin tins.

Bake for 30 minutes at 350. Let them cool a few moments they pull away and pop right out. Makes 24.

I ate them with sliced tomatoes. They would be a great accompaniment to my Chinese New Year Soup. Perfect as a party snack or appetizer. I love party food that is easy for guests to eat... no dirty fork to find a place for.

Dinner: Super quick and easy Philly Cheesesteak Saute. This is a go-to dinner when I don't really want to spend too much time in the kitchen. 15 minutes from start to finish.

Snacks: Too much coffee as usual, a Cottage Cheese Double (probably need to buy stock in this company) and a 1/2 Mango.

It was a tasty day. Very International... Irish Leprechauns, Chinese Egg Rolls, Philly Cheesesteak... it's like the United Nations of weight loss surgery post op menus.

Oh reminder... Sunday the St. Patrick's Day Giveaway ends so if you haven't entered be sure to do that before midnight Pacific time 3/15/15. Winner announced Monday.

I LOVE your Philly Cheesesteak Saute! It's been a lifesaver for me on nights I'm not up to spending a lot of time in the kitchen, but want to stay on track. Healthy eats & tastes so good!

I just made the egg roll bites and they are absolutely delish!! I used turkey sausage instead of pork sausage but I don't think it changed the taste.

What an AWESOME website! I am in the pre-op testing phase for RNY and worried about post surgery life. Your website has calmed my fears :-)
