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. Here’s yesterday’s menu including a couple of fun new supermarket finds…

Breakfast: Well I took my last dose of antibiotics yesterday for this upper respiratory crud and honestly I hope it continues to work for several days after like the doctor’s claim… though I always wonder how a malabsorptive bariatric surgery procedure plays into that. That’s the double-edged sword of a malabsorptive procedure, it’s nice to know you are not absorbing as much fat, carbs, calories from foods but not so much when it’s nutrients, vitamins or medication. I’m getting there… I feel about 75% but I would reeeeeeally like to have my energy back and a few cough-free days.

I don’t usually buy flavored yogurts. I tend to just add fun stuff to plain but I spotted this Dannon Lite & Fit Greek Caramel Apple Pie at Target the other day and tossed it in the cart. Ohhh it’s yummy. Not sure if it’s a limited Fall flavor but be on the lookout for it. It would be delicious in my Cinnamon Apple Walnut Salad.

I also had a Mini Protein Muffin. We had a game night and I made some Pineapple Upside Down Mini Protein Muffins.

Shelly’s Pineapple Upside Down Mini Protein Muffins

1 Egg, beaten
3 Tablespoons Milk
2 Tablespoons Sugar-Free Torani Syrup (any flavor SF Caramel, Vanilla, Brown Sugar Cinnamon)
1 Tablespoon Canola Oil
3 Tablespoons Multigrain Pancake Mix, dry
2 Tablespoons Almond Flour
1 Tablespoon Sugar-Free Vanilla Pudding Mix, dry
1/4 cup Premier Protein Vanilla 100% Whey Protein Powder
Pinch salt
1 Pineapple Tidbits (100% juice) Fruit Cup, drained well
6 Cherries, cut in half
Chopped Pecans for top

Mix egg, milk, syrup, and oil (applesauce or cottage cheese can sub for oil but 1 T divided between 12 muffins is really not a lot) and combine thoroughly. In a separate bowl, mix pancake mix, almond flour, pudding mix, protein powder, and salt. Tip dry into wet and stir till combined.

Spoon a little batter in each non-stick mini muffin pan opening that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Place 3-4 pineapple tidbit pieces on the batter and pour the remainder of the batter on top and I topped each with a few chopped pecans and a 1/2 of a cherry. Bake at 350 for 13-14 minutes. Edges will be golden, tops dry.

Lunch: The second find were these 4″ Mission Mini “Street Taco” Corn Tortillas. Tortillas (whole wheat or corn are about the only “bread” like item I eat) and these mini street tacos are only 100 calories for 3 tortillas. 1-2 is a great portion for me with whatever filling I make. This time I sauteed ground beef and onions which I seasoned with taco seasoning and topped them with lettuce, cilantro, guacamole, salsa, cheese, and plain Greek yogurt.

I bake the tortillas to make them sort of Tostada like and crunchy.  To make the Baked Taco Tostadas: Spray a 6-cup standard-size muffin tin with non-stick spray and place one of the corn tortillas in each section. If they are not pliable nuke them for 20 seconds in a wet paper towel and they will get bendy. I like to spray the tops lightly with non-stick spray and sprinkle with salt and chili powder.

Bake in a 400-degree oven for 15 minutes or until golden and crisp. Let cool for a few minutes and fill with taco fillings. They are great with my Crockpot Carnitas too.

Dinner: Finally, remember a few months back when I shared about those Real Good Chicken Crust Pizzas. They have Three Cheese, Pepperoni, and The Supreme (Italian Sausage & Veggies) and now they have a few of Breakfast Pizzas (Pepperoni, Sausage, and Bacon) I tried the bacon. It was a tasty protein-packed breakfast (or in my case breakfast for dinner) though I think I will stick to the traditional flavors. I missed the tomato sauce which gives it that pizza taste, the breakfast versions have a cheese sauce. If you give them a try, let me know what you think.

Ohh I did notice they now carry 2 slice personal pizzas too which are awesome for us bariatric surgery post-ops especially. 2 slices are plenty with the dense chicken & Parmesan crust. They are great to have in the freezer when you are jonesing for pizza but want to limit the carbs or need a meal for one when everyone in the family is out and about. Where to find: They have a product locator on their website to see what stores in your area are carrying them or you can order direct from the company online (P.S.

Snacks: Too much coffee, I’ve been drinking a lot of tea too (I love my Gooseneck Electric Kettle, it’s so vintage looking) and another protein mini muffin.
