Suggestions...

  • In N Out Burger has a "Protein style" burger. Hamburger patty wrapped in lettuce. I had part of one for lunch today while we were out school shopping.
  • Taco Bueno, Taco bell, Taco casa, etc... order a bowl of Beans and a scoop of taco meat or chicken meat.< br />
  • Chick Fil A ... kids meal with grilled chicken tenders and a fruit cup.
  • Grilled chicken breast from just about any fast food sandwich place.
  • Chipotle (you can even go to their website and plan your meal ahead of time!)
  • Chinese food... Pei Wei String Bean chicken or Mushroom Chicken

We eat out way too often but I'm learning to eat right when I go out!

You avoid fast food as much as you can, but if you're in a pinch you can order:

Burger w/o the bun(In&Out calls this "protien style")

Grilled chicken sandwich w/o bun

Chili (Wendy's)

Fruit& yogurt parfait

Steak or chicken burrito w/o rice (taco bell) eat the filling, discard the tortilla

Pintos & cheese (Taco Bell)

LJS has a grilled fish plate

Most fast food places have something you can eat.

But a recovering food addict going to fast food joints is tantamount to a crack fiend hanging out at a drug dealers house.

Just not a good idea.

I failed to mention that I ALWAYS have a Quest bar and crystal light pouches in my purse. If all else fails, I can always have a quest bar for a meal (for a snack I only eat 1/2 of one).

If you have a Jimmy John's nearby, you can order any of their sandwiches as an "unwich." An unwich is the same ingredients as the sandwich wrapped in lettuce instead of bread.< /p>

Subway! Anything they make a sandwhich out of they will make you a salad! I had a meatball salad one day yum.

My favorite is the BBQ chicken one. And Subway is great cause they have every topping you could want on a salad!

Ok so I know many are against fast food.... But mcdonalds let's you customize your meal on the website. I eat the grilled chicken wrap minus the wrap. Their website tells you the calories/protein for that meal. I get several of the wraps without the tortilla. Really there are several menu items (without tortilla or bun) that fit in our diet. Red Robbin also let's you customize your meal and gives you the stats. Love websites like that!

      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.

        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
