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. Here’s what I ate yesterday…
One of my favorite simple dinners is Baked Salmon and Carrots. Tons of protein and vitamins. I almost always toss an extra piece of salmon in the oven so I can turn it into lunch the next day. Sometimes I just have it as is with a dip made from Greek yogurt and dill or blend it with cream cheese and smear it on cucumber rounds or flaked on a green salad. Yesterday I turned it into a delicious protein packed salad.

Breakfasts like these mini breakfast oatmeal muffins and cinnamon protein shake made with Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Vanilla Unsweetened Almond Milk are delicious do betters.

In the middle of the show somewhere in between makeup and documentaries (aka the boring part) I made dinner. I made Bacon Cheeseburger Sliders with a little Oscar spin, they are wearing Top Hats!
