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 had some early morning errands so I mixed up a Chike High Protein Iced Coffee packet in my blender bottle and wrapped up a couple of leftover Ricotta Pancakes that I smeared with a little almond butter and off I went. I had to laugh... a few minutes before I took off I was scrolling through twitter and clicked on a trending topic... those trending topics always make me question our values as humans... anyway... I clicked, I read about the latest Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez drama (hey at least it wasn't the Kardashians) and I tweeted this random comment. Of course, of all the tweets I post about things I ACTUALLY care about... my Bieber tweet went viral and by the time returned from errands I had hundreds of retweets and likes... my notifications blew up. It figures. Well I hope they scrolled down educated themselves about health and obesity issues a little ;) yeah doubt it too.

Lunch: When I got home I was sort of glued to my computer getting some of my to-do list done before I take off for the Your Weight Matters National Convention #YWM2016 next week. So I filled my bento box and ate at my desk. I have 17 things on my list currently. Yeah I know... "good luck with that."

Dinner: I baked some Salmon fillets in the middle of the night last night. It was 105 yesterday (gonna be 101 today big cool down LOL) so when I woke up at 2 AM I sliced up a lemon and sprinkled some salmon with olive oil and a store bought herb blend. That's about the only time I'm OK with the oven being on. 25 minutes later I was back in bed for a bit with most of dinner done.

Just before dinner I tossed some foil packets of summer squash on the grill with the same treatment as the fish (drizzle of olive oil and sprinkle of seasoning blend) when they were done 20-25 minutes, closed grill. I opened the packed (careful for steam) and sprinkled some Parmesan and Mozzarella cheese on top.

I ate the salmon cold. I love cold salmon (great for salads like my Edamame & Salmon Salad tomorrow's lunch) but you could reheat (these little microwave steamers are great for reheating fish, meat, veggies and not drying them out.)

Coffee in the morning. Sugar Free Raspberry Lemonade sticks the rest of the day. At the hottest part of the day I popped a couple of Greek Yogurt Cubes in my mouth. I always have a freezer bag of those in the summer. Just don't eat them too fast... brain freeze. Ouch.
