There are some on this site, plenty on Pinterest, and you can google and find sites such as this: https://www.bariatriccookery.com/

I just came across a recipe for egg-drop soup that sounds easy. Can't wait to try it--well, after the cauliflower-garlic soup I bought ingredients for today . . . I like making soup.

This is one of my staple diet foods now. It's chicken salad so not exactly anything new, but adding in things like almonds (or walnuts) and dried cranberries give it a nice twist. I used to do a half & half mix of Greek Yogurt and light mayo (1 cup of each) but now go with the yogurt alone. Yields about six 1-cup servings. Truth be told most days I can only manage about 3/4 of a cup on it's own, or I do 1/2 a cup and mix in with my small salad.

If you want a lower carb version just drop the cranberries and that takes out around 11g of carbs per serving.

Edit: Just to clarify I cut the almonds, cranberries, and celery up into really small pieces and mix in with everything else.

Sounds great,
Do you eat it alone or with lettuce or something else?

Thanks Tealael I have left over dried cranberries and walnuts from my Christmas basket. Think I'll try it before I have to go on liquid diet. Since I don't have a firm scheduling date I could float free but with my gastritis I still have to eat small quantities at a time.

All sorts of ways. Typically with a little bit of lettuce. Sometimes with a couple of saltines if I need a "crunchy" fix. If I need a quick meal to go I'll put it in a small wheat tortilla, but if I do that I can only manage 1/2 cup of chicken salad and usually end up tossing part of the leftover tortilla. I don't make it a habit of using the tortillas but if I'm caught off guard and need to leave and am due to eat it serves it's purpose.

      Getting back to work has been really good for me! I am so busy I hardly have time to think about food or eat much and the scale and pants really show. I am either going to need a smaller belt or new jeans. A new belt is cheaper so I'll try this first. My tee shirts hang on me now.

      Im 4 weeks out now and i still get dizzy a lot, i will be doing the most minimalistic things and suddenly have this rush come over me where i feel week and dizzy. Usually not while I'm working out tho. It will happen on the way home from the gym, or in the shower after the gym. It kind of is just annoying at this point... but I'm down 38 pounds from the hospital and i continue to lose weight every day, weather it be .1 pound or 5 pounds in a day progress is progress. It has also been tough because it is summer and it is the summer before my senior year, i want to be out with my friends and go to parties that they are having but for the first two weeks i was kept at my parents side and they only let me go to a birthday party last week for the first time, i feel like i haven't seen my friends as much as I'm used to in the summer, and it kinda sucks, but at the end of the day it was my choice and i hope i made the right one. Im type excited to go back to band camp physically ready, and mentally motivated to push my self more than before. Im excited to do the 3 laps around the band field and not be 5 minutes behind everyone else. I am excited to lose more weight before band starts and i can wear my new boujee workout gear. I am excited to see if anybody notices my weight loss and if it affects my social life once school starts.

        Drink a protein drink right after your workout, or get more fluids - dizziness can be from dehydration. Push liquids at all times. Good luck.

      My Body Image Issues:
      07/20/18 Friday
      I am writing this because it seems like no matter how hard I do love myself and have confidence it's like it's hard to believe the words I say and also my old eating disorder/OCD mind tends to take over sometimes and before I know it I'm counting EVERY food that I eat and feeling very fat/freaking out. I'm trying to do my affirmations everyday and fix myself up nice to make myself feel better but it seems like nothing makes me feel better and I go back to either these bad thoughts or I want to self harm to heal myself or randomly yell at people. I get no stress release from my frustrations thus I become even more OCD spend and have other  bad addictions besides OCD'ing on the food I eat like overly exercise until my feet really blister or hurt or over spend on items I think I need to feel a void. I'm tired of putting myself through the ringer but it feels like nothing is never ever enough for me and I'm always searching for answers in the wrong places.
