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: A planned power outage in my area forced me out of the house. 90% of my business requires me to be online so I really couldn't be off the grid for the whole day. The plan was to hang at Starbucks for a few hours and when I couldn't justify loitering anymore I'd run some errands. I took a walk at the park first thing before it got hot then it was off to Bux. Breakfast was a Sugar Free Vanilla Soy Latte and 2 of these leftover Pancake Bites tossed in a Ziploc baggie.

Shelly's Pancake Bites

1/2 cup Multigrain Pancake Mix, dry
1/3 cup Soy Milk (any milk would do)
1/4 cup Torani Sugar Free Caramel Syrup
1/3 cup Cooked Sausage Crumbles*

Mix pancake mix, milk, syrup together till thoroughly combined. Pour batter into a non stick 12 cup mini muffin pan that has been sprayed with Pam. Fill about 3/4 way up. Top each muffin with a few sausage crumbles (*or crumbled cooked bacon, fresh berries, cooked apple, or diced peaches or a combo)

Bake at 350 for 12-14 minutes or until golden. Serve with SF Maple syrup for dipping. They reheat great but are tasty cold too.

Spotted some baby ducks at the park. Awww...

Lunch: Stopped at Costco for some more of that Tilapia I've been using in my fish packets and picked up some cooked shrimp. When I got home nothing was blinking (clocks, stove) so basically the electric company never shut the power off like they said they would and I could have been home all day. Grrr. I filled up my bento box with yummy stuff and and sat outside on the patio bitching about them... remember when they fried my computer, speakers, power strip a few months ago. Well... since then I found a few more things that incident had fried... a DVD/TV I used for my exercise video watching in the garage, a fan and my garage door opener.  So they are not my favorite people.

Dinner: Sliced up some zucchini placed it on a piece of foil. Add a piece of any fish you like (I used Tilapia.) Sprinkle with salt, pepper, oregano, add 1/4 cup store-bought Bruschetta Sauce (found near fresh pasta usually.) Wrap everything in foil tightly.

Toss on a covered BBQ for 20 (defrosted) - 25 (frozen) minutes and depending on the thickness of the fillet. Don't open the lid. Trust me it will come out perfect every time and best of all. Eat it directly from the packet and there is zero clean-up. OK maybe a fork.

Snacks: Coffee, my edamame pictured above was one and while I was at Costco I sampled a hunk of Guy Fieri's Brazilian BBQ Bacon Wrapped Chicken (yummy, the chicken and Guy.)

More days in my pouch.
