Lan2K,

I didn't like the greek yogurts the first time either. (then again...I hated ALL yogurts..) Now I get the plain...and mix in a teaspoon of sugar free Smuckers peach preserves or strawberry preserves. It adds enough flavor without being so sweet.

I also use the Greek yogurt in place of sour cream when making cauliflower Mash fauxtatoes. ONE frozen bag of cauliflower, cooked till it's entirely dead (no tender crisp...this has to be soft). I drain it very well, even pressing on it with a couple paper towels to get it dry. Then I mash it with a potato masher, add 1 T each of Greek yogurt, Neufchatel (low fat) cream cheese, and margarine or butter. Salt and pepper to taste... It keeps for four or five days in the fridge and is easy swallow early in the mushie stage.

It gives you the feeling that you're having comfort food. Easy to measure out too, I usually have about 2-3 tablespoons for a portion.

Sounds delicious, the cauliflower recipe. I could also try adding preserves to the plain greek yogurt. Thanks. How is your knee BTW??

Lan2K,

my knee is improving daily. Still turning down the "advice" to have an MRI but other than being able to definitely diagnose the damage...my doctor is happy enough with my progress. I don't have to use the walker anymore and I'm off the Vicodin. Swelling is down and bruising is fading. The weird skin hypersensitivity is gone so the nerves must be healing too. I walk with a noticeable limp but really doubt there are any major muscle tears...I believe it was a severe strain and sprain caused by the knee dislocating, with accompanying soft tissue damage caused by the impact of my knee hitting the ice. I'm mending..and taking it easy! Thanks for asking!

Tracy I am really really relieved for you! Now just do NOt attempt to do anything in the ice or snow! Before we know it spring will have arrived. Hang in there and take care of yourself.

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
