A day in my pouch

Yesterday. My post weight loss surgery day in eating...

Breakfast: Mmmm Coffee, Chocolate, Banana.

Shelly's Mocha Banana Joe Protein Shake

8 oz. Vanilla Soy Milk
1 scoop Chocolate Protein Powder
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Torani Syrup (I used SF Vanilla - on sale now)
1/2 Banana
1 Taster's Choice (or Starbuck's Via) Instant Coffee Tube
2-3 ice cubes

Lunch: All the flavors of a Greek meal. Chicken, Lemon, Mint, Cucumber, Olives.

Shelly's Tzatziki Chicken Salad

2 Rotisserie Chicken Breasts, chopped
1 Cucumber, diced
1 cup Grape Tomatoes, halved
zest of 1/2 a Lemon
6 Kalamata Olives, pitted and minced
2 cloves Garlic, minced
1 teaspoon Fresh Mint, chopped

Greek Yogurt Dressing
3 oz. Fage Greek Yogurt
1 Tablespoon Mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon Greek Seasoning
1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
juice of 1/2 a Lemon
a few twists of Black Pepper

In a mini food processor (a post-op must have) whiz olives till minced. Mix all salad ingredients together.

Mix dressing ingredients till well combined.

Toss all ingredients together with dressing. Chill.

I was gone all afternoon till pretty late so I wanted a dinner with minimal work...

Dinner: Fish or shrimp cooked in a foil packet is one of my go-to meals when I want something wonderful but super easy. I served it with steamed seasoned carrots.

Shelly's Herb and Garlic Fish Packet

1 fillet of Cod (any firmer white fish will do: Cod, Halibut, Tilapia, Orange Roughy)
1 Green Onion, chopped
1 Tablespoon Fresh Dill, chopped
1 teaspoon Butter
2 cloves of Garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
a few twists of Black Pepper
a slice of Lemon
Aluminum foil

Ingredients listed are for one packet multiply it for how many packets you are making. Place all ingredients in center of a piece of heavy duty foil (if you are using the $1 store stuff double it) Fold the foil over and seal each packet.

BBQ 15 minutes in covered grill. Open packets carefully steam burns are not fun.

Snacks: 2 Tropical Sunrise Protein Mini Muffins, a Cutie Mandarin and waaaay to much Coffee as usual.

A yummy day. Post weight loss surgery eating is GREAT eating don't let anyone tell you different.
