Weight Loss Recipes 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.

Breakfast: PB&J Oatmeal. Mixed in Strawberry Sugar Free Torani Syrup and Chike PB Powdered Peanut Butter (1 Tablespoon of each) and topped it with a teaspoon of SF Strawberry Jam (Reminded me of those Oatmeal Swirlers from the 80′s, remember those?) This tasted just like a Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich.

Need some more protein add a few Tablespoons of protein powder and mix it in. Mmm Chike Strawberry Burst or Celebrate Strawberry ENS would be great mixed in or if you normally do a splash of milk in your oats instead of milk use one of those Oh Yeah Strawberry and Creme Ready-to-drink Protein Shakes.

Made too much oatmeal? Make these Frozen Oatmeal Discs.

Lunch: Leftovers. Had a few things that needed using up so I filled my bento box with a mish mash of stuff and made a Greek yogurt dip (because I dip everything.) All was super tasty and packed with protein.

Dinner:  I went to the Fallbrook Avocado Festival this weekend (it’s tradition) and bought a few avocados that finally were perfect for guacamole making. Shrimp are way better than chips for dipping…

Snacks: Lots of coffee and Apple Nachos, my snack as I watched American Idol results. A great dessert but I have even had it for breakfast on occasion. Sliced Apple (I love Honeycrisp, Pink Lady or Fuji) with a variety of toppings. Totally kid friendly too. They can assemble their own “Nacho” masterpiece.

Greek Yogurt sweetened with Sugar Free Syrup (any flavor)
Chopped up Protein Bar (I used a hunk of Pure Protein’s Double Chocolate Vanilla Crunch Protein Bar)
Nuts
Toasted Unsweetened Coconut
Unsweetened Cocoa
Powdered Peanut Butter

Looking back at the day I realized I ate two meals that traditionally would be laden with chips: guacamole & chips and nachos and not a chip was eaten. Didn’t miss them either.
