Post Weight Loss Surgery Menus: A day in my pouch

A day in my pouch is a series of blog posts to show what a typical daily menu looks like in my post weight loss surgery world. What's on my menu today? How about a burger, fries and a shake? What?! Think that is a no-go post Bariatric Surgery? Well, in fact, I ate that very combo today. Well, I did space the shake out since I don't drink with meals. Check out my fun spin on the classic combo.

Breakfast: I started my day with a protein shake that tasted just like a Root Beer Float.

Shelly's Root Beer Float Protein Shake

1 cup Milk (any kind you use)
1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder
1/3 of a packet of A&W Root Beer Sugar-Free Drink Mix Singles to Go!
A few cubes of Ice

Whiz on high in blender.

I used Celebrate Vitamins Vanilla Bean Protein Meal Replacement. I found the A&W drink packets at my 99 cent store but here's an online source not much more expensive if you don't have them in yours. 1/3 of a packet is perfect for me, the perfect amount of root beer flavor.

If you have a Trader Joe's pick up some of this Onion Salt, the name is really deceiving though it's not salty at all the ingredients are granulated onion, granulated garlic, minced onion, kosher salt, green onion, and dried chives.

Trust me, get some. It's sooo great to add to Greek yogurt to make protein packed savory dips for veggies or meat, or sprinkle it on egg salad or tuna salad, scrambled eggs.

Dinner: Leftover rotisserie chicken. Thank goodness for Costco this summer when the temperature was too hot to turn on the oven. I picked up a Rotisserie Chicken and turned it into a couple of meals. Today I had a webinar for work so I made up my bento box and sat outside with my webinar on mute so they didn't hear any birds, planes or chewing.

I saw on my Amazon Prime account I can watch old episodes of Amazing Race and my Mum who loves the show never saw the first season so we are watching that and LOL I C.R.S. (Can't Remember Shit) so it's new to me too. If you have an Amazon Prime account you should check out all the awesome shows and movies included each month (or Try Amazon Prime 30-Day Free Trial) It's not cheap each year but 2-day shipping is really cool and free shows and movies are a bonus.

P.S. Check back I have a post going up with a few other fun, new (or at least new to me and hopefully some of you too) product finds. Oh, and it might be time for a giveaway this weekend. and and most importantly, sending prayers for safety to my many friends and family in the path of Hurricane Irma this weekend and those in Texas still feeling the results of Harvey. 2017 has been a hard one... we deserve some good things now. Sending wishes for them to all. xo Shelly
