Post Weight Loss Surgery Menus: A day in my pouch

A day in my pouch is a series of blog posts (I try and post them every few days) to show what a typical daily menu looks like in my post weight loss surgery world.

Breakfast: This is one of my go to breakfasts. My Mum (a Brit) is a big scrambled egg fan so I just toss an extra egg in for me and top with sauteed mushrooms, Parmesan cheese, and a few twists of black pepper. Sauteed mushrooms for breakfast = very British.

Lunch: This is a great lunch or dinner when you are home alone. It's easily adaptable add more less shrimp, more less spinach per person. It literally takes minutes to make. Low carb and packed with protein. Any leftover can be used the next day on top of a Tortilla Pizza.

Shelly's Quickie Spinach Shrimp Scampi

1 lb bag of Baby Spinach
12 Raw Shrimp
1 teaspoon (or more to taste) Garlic, minced
a pinch of Red Pepper flakes
a dash of Salt
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil

Saute garlic and red pepper flakes for 1 minute in olive oil. Toss in spinach when it's just wilted add shrimp, stir and cook till shrimp are pink and cooked through.

Dinner: I made one of my favorites. My Butternut Squash Casserole. It's soooo good.

Snacks: Coffee lots of it and I'm on a kick and have had this a few days in a row. Cucumber spears and my High Protein Feta Dip.

Hope everyone is having a nice weekend. We are unseasonably warm. It was 84°F. yesterday. It's not going to last, Tuesday's going to be 50°'s and rainy. Trying to get a few sunny walks in before I'm trapped just beating up my B.O.B. and dancing in my living room in my holey sweats. Off to do that now but check back in an hour or so... Week 3 of the I Heart Giveaway begins and you haven't entered Week 2 you have till midnight.
