Post Weight Loss Surgery Menus: A day in my pouch

My post weight loss surgery yesterday in eating...

Breakfast: Had to get a quick start so I grabbed an Oh Yeah Ready-to-Drink (RTD) Protein Shake this one was Vanilla Creme. I think Vanilla is my favorite, Chocolate comes in a close second but seriously they are all yummy.

Ran a ton of errands and then headed over to get my hair whacked off. I let it go waaaay too long. All those recent $$$ house repairs and car stuff $$$ stopped me from getting it done for a few months. I finally couldn't take it anymore. It was attacking me in the night. I feared for my safety ;) I survived severe GERD, Severe Sleep Apnea, High Blood Pressure but watch I strangle myself with my unruly mop of hair in the night.

I'll be headed to the Vegas Meet & Greet next week and I couldn't look like Cousin Itt (am I dating myself with that reference) in pictures. I'll snap and post a ton. I understand the shindig will be streaming live too. I'll get that info and post it.

Lunch: Came home and had a little tidbit smorgasbord. Cheese, Salami, Cucumber Slices and my High Protein Avocado Dip.

Dinner: For dinner, I did a twist on my zucchini pasta addiction...

Shelly's Zucchini and Onion Pasta

1 Large Sweet Onion, sliced (Vidalia or Maui but regular yellow would be fine)
4 small-medium Zucchini, julienned
1 Tablespoon Fresh Basil, chopped
1 teaspoon Oregano
Salt to taste
a few twists of Black Pepper
Parmesan Cheese and Crumbled Feta (or Goat Cheese would be yum too) on top top

Slice onion into thin slices. Saute till slightly golden. Using this super cool gadget cut the zucchini into julienne strips. Add to onion. Add seasonings.

Continue cooking till zucchini is cooked to desired doneness, about 8 minutes or so. Sprinkle with cheese and serve.

Snacks: Lots of Coffee and I made this creation during American Idol...

Shelly's Banana Split

1/2 banana, sliced lengthwise
a dollop of Cottage Cheese (or Greek yogurt)
2 Tablespoons Sugar Free Strawberry Jam (or any other flavor)
1 Tablespoon Chopped Nuts
Optional: Sugar Free Whipped Cream

Split the banana lengthwise and lay the two halves in a shallow bowl. Spoon a dollop of cottage cheese or Greek yogurt on top of the banana. Warm jam in the microwave for 15 seconds to thin. Drizzle jam and sprinkle nuts over everything. Top with a final squirt of Sugar Free Whipped Cream.

A delicious ending to the day.
