Just wondering what everyone's favorite meals and Snacks are... getting a little bored and wanting to try some new things! I'm going grocery shopping tomorrow so looking for ideas :) I'm mostly looking for quick and easy Breakfast, lunch, and snack ideas that I can take with me to work. I make lots of new recipes for dinner and on the weekends...

Here's my regulars in case anyone else wants new ideas:

Breakfast is one of 4 things usually:

1. Protein Shake

2. oatmeal with spoon of GENEPRO added

3. Greek Yogurt with nuts

4. Egg and cottage cheese

Snacks are usually:

Cheese and a few Nut thins

Greek yogurt

Veggies and Hummus

Almonds

For lunch I always just take leftovers from dinner.... Forgot to say that i mostly eat vegetarian with some seafood occasionally :)

These are some of the things that are in my regular rotation, along with the things you listed. I didn't put in meat options, since you said that you mostly eat vegetarian.

For snacks:

-The Good Bean roasted chick peas

-Babybel light cheese

-roasted edamame

For breakfast:

-Quest Protein bar

For lunch:

-high Protein lentil chips with hummus or Peanut Butter and sugar free jelly

shiritaki Tofu Noodles are a great Pasta substitute. I ate this with lapband- haven't tries with sleeve yet but I would make Shrimp Scampi with the Shiritaki Tofu Noodles & vegetables. You can do it without the shrimp & lots of veggies

This is a great question. I'm curious whhay other people are eating.

Breakfast is usually egg whites, turkey sausage, or Greek yogurt.

lunch is sometime rolled lunch meat. Lots of times it's whatever is left from a meal I couldn't finish the night before.

dinner is shrimp, canned chicken, or ground turkey. A bit of mixed veg with soy Beans, spap peas, and baby carrots.

My surgical practice doesn't approve of hummus. No nuts, Protein Bars, or Peanut Butter. Also fruit is only supposed to be a morning snack.

I just saw a terrific recipe on Facebook. Its sliced tomatoes topped with provolone & parmesan cheese, spices and baked. It looks like mini pizzas but the tomatoes are the crust. I can't wait to make it

I have seen a recipe for a Pizza Crust made of cauliflower. Hoping to try it soon. Also tried cloud bread. It's pretty good after it's sat overnight. If you eat it right after it cools it is crunchy like a meringue.

Cauliflower rice or cauliflower whipped "potatoes."

Nuts and sugar-free fruit cups. Damon Greek yogurts.

I make a crustless quiche that I eat everyday. You can change up the flavor profile by what you add. My favorite is bacon, swiss, green onion, roasted red peppers and mushrooms.

5 eggs

1 C cottage cheese

Any cheese, veggies, seasoning or meat you want to add. I also add 1 or 2 scoops GENEPRO to up the Protein.

Just whip together and pour into a greased pie pan. Bake at 400 F for about 30 - 35 minutes. Makes 6 good size portions.

      My 3 babies and my little "niece". Took on a babysitting job this past weekend. She is super tiny compared to my 3 biggies. Sitting on command for treat-os!
       
      Pre-op Liquid - Day 2 
      It was very hard today...I'm feeling some type of way from not eating the meals I was supposed to before the pre-op diet. My sister got stuck in Dallas a week before my diet and we were supposed to go on a nice dinner, but that never happened. I have super bad dry mouth and bathroom breaks are more frequent.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
