A few different recipes. My favorite turned out to be baked butternut squash. I puréed it with a little garlic and some low fat Greek cream cheese. I also puréed some asparagus, then ground turkey that I mixed with low sugar marinara sauce and low fat ricotta. I put a bag of pinto Beans in the crockpot to make my own refried beans. I enjoy cooking but I used to do it with a bottle of wine.

That sounds really good. Will try this when time for puréed food.

Oh my gosh these sound delicious! Would you be able to share your recipes?

Thank you. I made everything a little on the bland side because I wasn't sure. I cut and scooped out the seeds of the squash, rubbed a little olive oil on it. Baked for 40 minutes at 400 degrees. After it cooled I scooped out the insides added it to the food processor with 2 cloves of garlic and 2 tablespoons of Greek cream cheese. Whipped it all up. The turkey meat dish I made from the dr's office recipes. Just brown some lean ground turkey, drain the fat and place in the food processor. Add 2 tablespoons of low sugar marinara sauce. Purée it ( if you are in that phase). I put 1/4 of a cup in small containers and added a tablespoon of low fat ricotta cheese and 1 teaspoon of mozzarella cheese. Then when I reheated I just mixed it all up. Not exactly lasagna but better than broth [emoji847]

That's such a great idea and they both sound good! I have food envy! :)

      To working out faithfully for 5 days a week. Lets go back to that year with a more positive mind, 
       
      SKINNY SZN HERE WE COME!!!!
       
      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.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
