#1 PB2

#2 Almond Coconut Milk

#3 Plain Greek yogurt (instead of sour cream)

#4 Salsa

#5 Boca Spicy 'Chickn' patties

It isn't food but my powders?utm_source=BariatricPal&utm_medium=Affiliate&utm_campaign=CommentLink" target="_ad" data-id="1" >unjury Protein powder and I love Atkins caramel nougut bars because they are high in Protein and actually have a good amount of Fiber (like 10 grams).

Greek yogurt. I live on yogurt. I have to "delactose" it with drops, but I love the stuff, any way.

Rice Cakes. They replaced bread totally for me. I even make toasted sandwiches with them (they dont ignite in a sandwich press, but dont try toasting or microwaving them).

Muesli. I make home made toasted muesli, full of good stuff like ground flaxseed.

Coconut. Just coz. Coconut flavoured anything. I adore the stuff.

Nuts. Another staple which replace entire meals for me.

And.... coffee. Always the most important thing in my diet. I'm not a confectionary coffee person though, strong, black and unsweetened is my thing.

I use my PB2 in my Protein shakes. Apparently, you can use it just like Peanut Butter after you add Water to moisten it.

Crockpot enchilada chicken

boca meatless burgers

cheese

Deli Ham

Protein shakes

You can use the PB2 as a paste after you add Water, but the taste isn't like normal Peanut Butter. It's kinda grainy and unsweet, tastes a lot like ground peanuts. I looooove it in homemade shakes, tho - nice Protein kick!

8 chicken breasts

1 onion

3 cloves garlic

1 bell pepper

Several jalapenos (I do about 5, the gest cooks out a lot)

1 can diced green chiles (sm)

2 chicken bouillon cubes

2 lg cans old el paso enchilada sauce

3 cans black Beans

.5 bag of frozen corn

Salt and pepper to taste

dice all the veggies and throw everything in the crockpot. cook 6-8 hours, then pull the chicken and shred it (it falls apart). Put the chicken back in to soak up juices and leave crock pot on low. This takes about an hour, I like to leave it juicy.

I divide this into smaller dishes and freeze it. I take out one dish and it serves about 3 meals for me. I like it with melted cheddar cheese and crushed red pepper, then dipped into sour cream. it's low carb, high Protein and DELICIOUS!

Sorry the measurements aren't exact, I created this recipe and usually just wing it ;)

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      2. Krestel

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
