    Cranberry Orange biscotti !
    I love baking, its like a natural air freshener for the house 😂
    Each serving is 117 calories (but I didn't cut them all the same size, so give or take some cals depending on which one one eats).
    I had a bite off one of the end pieces that nobody wanted....probably 1/4 a serving? So 30 cals is going into MFP.
    Wish you could all smell my house right now.

    I had 2 doses of Moderna in January. No issues after first dose. Feeling very tired, with muscle pain all over my body on the second day after second shot. Asked myself what is better: getting COVID or feeling crappy? Took 1000mg of tylenol and problem was gone!

    Lisa LoVuolo reacted to Cherié H in Protein supplement struggle   
    I’m post op week 8 and I’m still needing to supplement with Protein Drinks. I really struggled especially about week 6. I had tried several brands and flavors and types . When I started realizing I wasn’t even getting 20-30g, when I was supposed to be having 60-90g I started to panic. And the doctors had no suggestions except to change flavors or brands. It didn’t really help. I began throwing up the Protein because I drank too fast or too much trying to get it down. The smell physically made my stomach hurt just making it. My son gave me a brand called HUELL which was better because it had little flavor or smell. It was the best of all of them but What finally has helped was protein Water infusers. The one I preferred was Isopure because it used stevia instead of artificial sweeteners which gave me headaches. Now I seem to do better because I can water it down but still get my protein although I have to drink more. Still takes me all day to finish 60g but at least I’m not throwing up or dry heaving. My experience

    I had crazy high cholesterol and blood pressure before surgery and was on medications for both. I was also pre-diabetic. My doctor told me that without something drastic (i.e., surgery) I was going to have a major cardiac incident within ten years that I might not survive.
    I was off both medications about three months after surgery. In fact, my blood pressure got so low that it was actually a problem for a while. Getting off the meds was one of the great benefits of surgery for me.

    I enhanced this cauliflower crusted pizza I bought @ costco. Added Protein of grilled chicken sausage (can add anything I.e. shrimp), part skim ricotta, reduced fat mozzarella as well as more marinara, sun dried tomatoes & mushrooms. Cooked by air frying which made crust nice & crusty. Totally satisfied any pizza cravings I might have had. No pizza, Pasta, limited carbs in 10.5 lbs. Down 120 lbs. 20 more to go!
