This makes a great microwave casserole. I mix it up in a big bowl, then spoon into 4oz ramekins and seal them for dinners.

Here are 2 really easy dinner ideas. I currently have the jalapeño sausage out of the freezer, I normally use the same brand Italian sausage.

Cut up the sausage add peppers and onions or whatever veggies you like and sauté them a few minutes. I put the low carb tortilla in the oven to dry out a bit then put a tablespoon of pizza sauce on it. Top with sausage and veggies then sprinkle 1/4 cup of part skim mozzarella on it and bake it at 400 for 8 minutes or so.

Second one, repeat just about everything but instead of the tortilla nuke the cauliflower gnocchi and toss with the Tomato sauce sausage and veggies.

Ok, so I'm on a soft foods mission from God these days. LOL! I'm having a bit of an affair with Healthy Request Condensed Cream Soups. Today I tried and made cream of mushroom and crab Soup. It was totes awesome and ridiculously easy. Just open some cans and pour into a pot--basically.

Cream of Mushroom Crab Soup (or use your favorite healthy canned cream soup flavor):

You basically just whisk everything but the Protein Powder together in a small saucepan and let it simmer for about 5 minutes. You can add whatever spices you want. I also nuked 2 oz of broccoli until very tender and chopped it up pretty small. Then to every serving, I just add 1/4 of the whey Protein powder and a spoon or two of soup and stir it into a paste, then add the rest of the soup and the protein powder dissolves like magic. Then I added the broccoli to the bowl. It makes about 4-5 (1/2c) servings and is fabulous. If you don't like broccoli you can add cauliflower, chopped spinach, more mushrooms. But I am focusing on frozen soft veggies right now.

So so so good. I may have it for dinner tonight!!!

Here's the nutrition totals with 4 servings per recipe (makes about 1 cup of soup with the broccoli added):

You can even puree it up so it's creamy texture. :)

Rotisserie chicken from costco or grocery store. Easy way to make fajitas, Soup, salad, stir-fry, sandwiches etc.. if I don’t stop I’m going to sound like the man from Forrest Gump.

Which reminds me of another one I like to have around, Fresh or frozen shrimp. Cooks crazy fast and is easy.

I was using bariatric pal food packets until they hosed me on the return policy. Some items were great but being charged 30% return/stocking fee as a part of their taste test guarantee made me decide to look elsewhere for ideas.

You are new and have only posted several times about being hosed. If you are real, fill out your profile. What type of surgery and when?

Avoid any site that sells bariatric processed crap food. I would suggest eating real whole foods. Hope you get your money back.

I thought that I would chime in with something that I have used in the past. Rather than use the flatbread or tortilla wraps, try Joseph’s Lavash bread. The wraps are large and we only need about 1:4 of one which equates to 30 calories. They are made from flax, whole wheat and oat bran. Super yummy!
