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. :)

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week

        If people ask, I am open about it

      2. ms.sss

        I'm about 10 months post op, and my standard answer is I eat way less and exercise way more (oh, and I cut the carbs by a lot). The only people I told were Mr., the Kid, BFF and my Mom.

        People know cuz my sissies have big mouths. And when skinny peeps ask out of morbid curiousity and they are "related" somehow to me, I look at em and arch my eyebrow and smile like, WTF? Then I just shrug and say, "I can neither confirm nor deny." (I've practiced this in the mirror many times. LOL!)

        But today, I was talking to a lady in my oncologist's office and she said "Oh don't you love you Surgeon X - bariatric surgeon? I'm in her weigh loss program!" And so I really opened up to her and talked frankly about the program and the surgery and details and how I'm so much happier and healthier, etc. So there has to be a real genuine need and desire for comraderie--otherwise, "Bye Felicia..."
