What's for dinner?



Recommended Posts

I'm just more than three months post op and finding it difficult to come up with meal ideas. Post some pictures of your sleeve friendly meals, could give each other some ideas to keep the variety.

Tonight is bacon wrapped asparagus for me...

Eat some FF cottage cheese or yogurt and THEN explore Pinterest. It makes it easier for me to explore and plan recipes if I'm not starving. Lots of WLS recipe posts.

No pictures but tonight was smoked pulled pork, grilled onions and just a small amount of BBQ Sauce.< /p>

I've got a pork butt in the crock pot right now. Never made pulled pork before but I'm giving it a shot!

Been all over Pinterest, not much that I'd like or realistically want to make. Just wanting to see what things others are having. Gives me ideas that I can put together in my own way. Edited by #BirdDog

I keep chicken breast tenders in marinade constantly for hubby to grill. Pork tenderloin is easy to toss in the oven. Crock pot soup/stew once a week leaves plenty of leftovers. Frozen turkey meatballs for when I'm really not feeling like cooking, I toss them in marinara and bake.

I'm also doing chili right now. Perfect for cold weather and easy to eat. It also gives Fiber to keep me a "good ol regular" guy. We do pork butt quite a bit but we do it in the smoker. Good stuff!

Tonight was crab with lemon mayo, asparagus and coleslaw. Last night was Italian sausage with peppers, onions and spicy Tomato sauce and Tuscan-style white Beans. Night before was stuffed peppers (loving my new Instant Pot). New Year's Eve we're having people over and doing tacos and margaritas, no margarita for me. Chili sounds like a great idea for New Year's Day...

I had RNY gastric bypass surgery over 3 years ago. I found that softer foods such as chili and Soups went down much easier than harder foods such as steaks. As a result I relied on softer foods and to a large extent still do. The recipes for a few high Protein homemade meals that I used are attached at the end of the following article. http://www.breadandbutterscience.com/Surgery.pdf

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
