I normally have:

Mini Babybel with meds
Breakfast is either a protein bar or an egg and sausage
Lunch is dense protein (4 oz chicken breast, hamburger patty, a few shrimp, etc)
Dinner these days is often a stir fry of beef and veggies

Water is my number one diet building block these days. I usually drink a bottle while I'm taking my meds, then one when I leave the house to go to work, another bottle at work, one on the way home and at least one more bottle of water after dinner. I use a lot of mio drops in my water as well.

If you're interested, a lot of folks here use My Fitness Pal to log our meals and workouts. I'm Lissa912 on there and would be happy to add you as a friend. MFP allows you to either show or hide your daily meals. I keep mine visible to others because it helps me maintain accountability. It's a great place to get ideas about what to eat.

It depends on whether you are using the phone or the computer application. On the phone application, go to the friends (bottom of the screen), then click on requests at the top of the screen and type in the name of the person you would like to request. On the computer application, I have no clue, unfortunately. :)

I'm still newly post-op but per my surgeon's plan I can eat soft foods. I'm still struggling with basic protein portions so I haven't incorporated many soft foods yet. Here's what I had today:

Breakfast: Nectar protein drink (32gm protein).

Lunch: 3/4 deli slice cheese spread with a toddler spoonful of lowfat sour cream and a black bean soupy mixture I make, rolled up and cut into pieces.

Snack: 2 oz Greek yogurt with SF salted caramel syrup and a few dashes of cinnamon.

Dinner: was still full from snack. I made a batch of quiche lasagna to keep for when I feel like I can manage a soft food. I ate about a spoonful of the egg/ricotta/cheese "batter" and it really stuck with me for a while (easily the densest thing I've eaten in more than 2 weeks).

After dinner: I've made what I call a PBJ protein drink - vanilla protein powder, PB2, SF peanut butter syrup, SH strawberry syrup and soy milk. I still feel stuffed so I may or may not be able to finish it tonight.

I think a lot of people order their SF syrups online, but I think they also have them at World Market and might have them other places. I don't use any of them.

My normal meals when I was first released to regular food were usually the following:

breakfast - scrambled egg with cheese, diced canadian bacon, and veggies (usually mushroom/tomato)

lunch - chicken breast, 2% cheese chunks, sometimes yogurt or some veggies (sliced cucumber is always good and doesn't seem to fill my sleeve up too quickly). I also sometimes do leftovers from the prior night's dinner so it could be taco meat with 2% shredded cheese, lowfat sour cream and salsa. Sometimes I splurge and do a few tortilla chips with it.

dinner - whatever I fix for my family, and I just eat the protein part of the dish and try to avoid most of the carbs. We make a lot of chicken recipes, but also pasta/meatballs, steaks on the grill, etc.

Hey Lissa, how do I add a friend on myfitnesspal?


Daniellec
If you go to your home page then click on the top where it says friends it will direct you to a page that says invite friends. Once you click on invite friends you will go to another page were at the top you will see a "find members" button. There you just copy and paste (Lissa912) into the Username box and there you go. Sorry if that sounded confusing. I hope it helps.
By the way Lissa I did invite you as a friend.
