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 today...
Breakfast: Happy Sunday Everyone! For breakfast I made Yogurt Parfaits. I made a batch of Protein Granola which was the bottom layer and topped that with Fig Yogurt and Fresh Raspberries and Blueberries that I picked up yesterday at the Farmer's Market.

Lunch: I had phone meeting that sort of went into lunch (we're getting soooo close to the Your Weight Matters National Convention #YWM2016 Hope to see you there!) so when I got off the phone it was a bit too close to dinner to have what I planned so a protein shake to the rescue. What a great combo this was Celebrate Vitamins (sponsor) Chocolate Mint Protein 20 and coffee.
Shelly's Chocolate Mint Coffee Protein Shake
8 oz. Almond or Soy Milk (any milk will do)
1 scoop Celebrate Vitamins Protein 20 Chocolate Mint Protein Powder
1/2 of a Tube of Instant Coffee Crystals (Taster's Choice, Starbucks Via, Folger's)
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Torani Vanilla Syrup
a few Ice Cubes
Blend on high till well combined. I topped it with No Sugar Added, Homemade Whipped Cream and sprinkle of instant coffee crystals. Yum!

Dinner: This was sooo good. I was feeling like a burger and these little sliders hit the spot. I seasoned a 1/2 pound of ground beef (you can use turkey too) with some garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper and formed them into 4 little sliders and cooked them on my grill pan. In another pan I sauteed some onions, set those aside then sauteed some mushrooms. I had some pre-cooked bacon I just warmed in the pan to crisp it up. When the burgers were almost done I sprinkled some shredded cheddar cheese on each and placed them under the broiler to get all gooey and melty. Everyone makes their own cheeseburger slider creation.

Snacks: Coffee. Tons of water with drink sticks. My new favorite: Raspberry Lemonade.
Later there's a couple of Quest Bar turned into Oatmeal Chocolate Chip "Cookies" with my name on them. Oatmeal Chocolate Chip is the latest flavor Quest Bar. Keep your eye out for Blueberry Muffin and Rocky Road coming soon.
