Italian Zucchini

Recommended Posts

The one food I miss since being banded is spaghetti and meatballs. Tried this carb friendly version, 5 strands of spaghetti noodles with zucchini and long squash.

3 cups zucchini and long squash slivered ( I used a veggie peeler)

1/2 c diced onion

2 cloves garlic chopped

1 cup sliced mushrooms

1/4 c white wine (or water)

1 c diced tomatoes (or cherry tomatoes)

1/4 c parmesan cheese

1 tsp olive oil

pinch of salt

pepper to taste

Add onions, garlic, salt, pepper, and oil to a skillet. Saute until onions are soft. Add mushrooms and brown. Deglaze pan with white wine, add zucchini and cook to soften. Add tomatoes to warm. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and serve. Makes 3 servings at approx. 114 calories/serving.

I added 5 strands of cooked spaghetti, 1/4 cup of marina sauce and 2 meatballs to my dish to give it the Italian Pasta night feel.

      OMG! My time is quickly approaching! I can't believe in 5 days, my life will be changed forever (for the better!). I have thought about this surgery for years, but kept telling myself I didn't need it. Now that I can view it as a tool and not a solution, I realize I do need this tool. This tool will not only help me physically, but mentally as well!

      Getting close - 196 lbs as of this week.  Goal is 195.  Actually, I'm thinking of adjusting my goal.  I'd like to get down to 185 to get rid of this scraggly belly jiggle, then try to build back up to 200 with muscle instead.

      I’m a complete novice on forums but I think my experience I’ve had so far following a gastric balloon insertion will be interesting to someone…
      I had my obera 365 inserted on 31/08/21.
