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. My yesterday...

Breakfast: Made my Buttercrunch Ricotta Pancakes. I make a lot of different protein pancakes but I think these are my favorite.

Lunch: Had some errands to run that brought me near the beach. Packed up my bento box and ate lunch staring at the waves for some free-ish (1/4 a tank of gas) therapy.

Shelly's Dilly Egg Salad

4 Hardboiled Eggs
1 Green Onion, diced fine
2 Tablespoons Greek Yogurt
1/2 teaspoon dried Dill
pinch of Kosher Salt
a few twists of Black Pepper

Whiz eggs in a mini food processor or mash with a fork till desired consistency. Add eggs to remaining ingredients and mix together.

More bento box lunches
More Eggface egg dishes

This was my lunchtime view. Ahhhh.

Dinner: Came home after errands, one of which was stopping at Costco for a tray of their cooked shrimp. Ate a few with a few more Cucumber "Crackers" and a dollop of Greek Guacamole.

Shelly's Greek Guacamole

1 ripe Avocado, mashed
1-2 Chopped Tomatoes
2 Tablespoons Black Olives, chopped
2 Tablespoons Crumbled Feta cheese
1/2 teaspoon Oregano
Sprinkle of Kosher Salt
a few twists of Black Pepper

Scoop the flesh out of the avocados into a bowl. Mash avocado till partially mashed but still some chunks. Add remaining ingredients. Mix well. Makes enough for 2 or 3 people.

Snacks: Lots of coffee including a Sugar Free Vanilla Soy Latte at a coffee shop tweet stop and in the evening sometime I ate a leftover pancake from breakfast, cold from the fridge they are yummy too.


More days in my pouch

Next week I'll be in Vegas for the Weight Loss Surgery Foundation of America Meet & Greet. I hope to see some of you there. Come find me and say hi! Looking forward to meeting Carnie Wilson and hearing Dr. Yoni Freedoff speak. I understand there are still tickets available so come hang out.

I also wanted to remind anyone thinking of attending the Obesity Action Coalition "Your Weight Matters" Convention in August that EARLY BIRD pricing continues for just 9 more days. Get in on it. It's going to be AMAZING and provide you with awesome tools for continued success in your health & weight loss goals. I can't wait!
