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: I always have a few of these ready to drink (RTD) Oh Yeah Vanilla Creme Protein Shakes. My favorites are Vanilla Creme and Strawberry. I had a bunch of things to do before company came over (aka tossing things in out of way places) and I sipped it in between tasks.

Lunch: My sister and niece were in town for the weekend. I grilled some Zucchini (swipe of olive oil and sprinkle of Greek Seasoning) and made a tray up of Cold Cuts (Ham, Turkey, Muenster Cheese), Lettuce, Olives and Almonds (Wasabi and Applewood Smoked, Farmer's Market finds) Everyone made sandwiches and I made my typical breadless Cold Cut Roll-ups, had some Zucchini and a few Nuts. My sis and niece are also RNYers (they were my guinea pigs, 2 years before me) but they aren't militant about bread, pasta, white carbs like I am. This is how my journey needs to be. Closing in on 7 years free of it so really I don't miss it much. It was harder in the first year now it's rarely a thought. Here's our spread...

Oh I cut up some Strawberries and Mango tossed with a pump of Sugar Free Vanilla Torani Syrup for dessert.

Dinner: I had some leftover tri-tip from last night's dinner. I chopped it up and repurposed it into Lettuce Cup Tri Tip Tacos.

I sauteed an Onion. Tossed the leftover Steak in with a Tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce. Spooned that mixture into Butter Lettuce "Taco Shells" and topped with a little shredded Cheese and a dollop of Greek Yogurt mixed with McCormick Perfect Pinch Salt Free Fiesta Citrus Seasoning. So good.

Snacks: Lots of coffee and I just rolled up and ate one lonely piece of turkey left from lunch.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!
