Post Weight Loss Surgery Menus: A day in my pouch

My yesterday in post weight loss surgery eating and a little wrap-up from my Washington DC trip this past week...

Breakfast: I had to stop at the Farmer's Market and the store this AM to pick up a few things. I have been in Washington DC for National Obesity Care Week and ObesityWeek and the cupboards were a little bare. I was a little early so I stopped at Starbucks and had those Sous Vide Egg White Bites for breakfast. Love these suckers. I am so tempted to get a Sous Vide gadget (Dear Santa) just to make variations of these at home.

ObesityWeek (OW) was great. At the beginning of the year, I will begin my term as Chair of the Obesity Action Coalition (OAC) and attending OW2017 was an opportunity to meet some of the people and groups that OAC works closest with, as well as some potential new groups. Truly the best part about attending was seeing all the people that care about obesity and those affected by it. Wonderful doctors, nurses, dietitians, psychologists, advocates and others... fighting against bias, fighting for access to care, and educating themselves so they can be the best for their patients.

We held our first OAC Tweet Chat on the topic of Weight Bias so be sure to read the Storify of that and the rest of the week's activities.

I got my first taste of Fall in DC and I think I brought a little home because as I look at the weather app on my phone it looks like 70's for as far as I can scroll! Yes! FINALLY!

Lunch: I'm so excited to finally have Fall weather. I have a list of recipe ideas I want to try and now that I don't have to worry about heating up the house (this was the LONGEST SUMMER EVER) I can start trying them out. Today's decision was made when I saw Peppers 3 for $1 at the market. I had one with a little sliced avocado on the side. They would also be great with a green salad or a breakfast for dinner idea with scrambled egg or just on their own.

Snacks: Too much coffee and a little hunk of a Red Velvet Powercrunch Bar. I like to keep something like this when you feel like a little something sweet just put the remainder of the bar in a snack sized baggie and toss in the freezer. I get 3-4 servings from one bar.
