Oooooo I will try (a modified version of) this.

Does the sauce come ready made or can I skip the oyster part in a home recipe?

You could probably pick up a ready made one somewhere, but its better to make your own to tailor to your taste. And yeah, you can skip the oyster sauce (though it helps to thicken it a bit so it clings better to the tofu...maybe sub with a bit of cornstarch or xanthum gum)

I bet hoisin would be a good sub for oyster sauce :)

Honey glazed smoked salmon and broccoli florets. I baked them both in the oven. It was so yummy! I ate half for lunch and the half about 2 hours later.

Looks good! So simple yet satisfying. I like to maple glaze things

Unsolicited Tip Alert: Don't forget to add honey to the food log (if you are depending on it for tracking) if the salmon is in fact honey glazed. You'd be surprised how many cals honey adds 😭

I use "Mühlenhack" - that's basically the only fake ground beef that's good tasting to me. It looks like already bakes ground beef, e. g. brownish and crumbly.




The Garden Gourmet one has a realistic look (like raw ground beef) but it has "that typical taste" so to say and I didn't like it that much.




I've seen a new brand lately that also sells fake ground beef and burgers, also looking like the raw version but haven't tried it so far. Maybe I'm going to get it and add it to some kind of casserole as a layer but for testing purposes I might simply make it into patties and fry it in the pan. I don't want to ruin a whole casserole with a taste I don't like.


Thank you

Duck Breast Bao (I was too lazy to try to Peking it tonight...next time, I guess)




I ate 100g of just the Duck Breast with 2 tbsp of the sesame-ginger-garlic sauce: 282 calories.

Workday was as awful and stressful as I thought it would be with two of five people on vacation. Had a 19.5 h unintentional fasting window, one successful intervention, one not-that-successful intervention that lasted for ages, ate my sandwich and salad and a piece of the fruit. Now I'm beaten.

Whatever, it's sandwich time again since a pita package contains five pitas, my freezer and fridge are full, I want comfort food tonight anyway and I'm too lazy to whip up a Soup.

Here's a snap shot of the salad for tomorrow:

BAO buns: Its a steamed, yeast-leavened bread (of chinese origin). There are other versions from other cultures under different names. It’s very soft/spongy and fluffy, and totally delicious. Though I haven’t actually eaten any since surgery, the fam loves it.

I can’t think of a similar Western bread to compare to though...maybe someone out there could give an example?

Crammed in the bottom: red batavia salad, an egg, cucumber and leftover steamed broccoli. Crammed in the top Caesar Salad Dressing from yesterday's batch, canned tuna and chickpeas.

Here is aforementioned sandwich, btw.: pita, "Schnitzel", red batavia salad leaves, raw yellow onion, a bit of the Caesar dressing mixed with Tomato paste. Not a good picture, sorry.

It reminds me of injera.

kind of has that same taste and texture - although the injera we get around here is really flat, like a crepe - whereas I think those Bao Buns (if I'm thinking of the right thing) are puffy

Haven't gotten my hands on real injera in years (since I moved away from Frankfurt/Main in fact). I had some really good Moroccan corn bread lately I bought at a store near the clinic that does my follow up. ;)

      I have no clue where to upload this, so I'll put it here. This is pre-op vs the morning of my 6 month appointment! In office I weight 232, that's 88 lbs down since my highest weight, 75 lbs since my surgery weight! I can't believe this jacket fit... I am smaller now than the last time I was this size which the surgeon found really amusing. He's happy with where I am in my weight loss and estimates I'll be around 200 lbs by my 1 year anniversary! My lowest weight as an adult is 195, so that's pretty damn exciting to think I'll be near that at a year. Everything from there will be unknown territory!!

      I changed my profile image to a molecule of protein. Why? Because I am certain that it saved my life.

        That's brilliant! You've done amazing!! I should probably think about changing my profile picture at some point. Mine is the doll from Squid Games. Ironically the whole premise of the show is about dodging death. We've both done that...

      Two years out. Lost 120 , regained 5 lbs. Recently has a bout of Norovirus, lost 7 pounds in two days. Now my stomach feels like it did right after my surgery. Sore, sensitive to even water.  Anyone out there have a similar experience?

      April Surgery
      Am I the only struggling to get weight down. I started with weight of 297 and now im 280 but seem to not lose more weight. My nutrtionist told me not to worry about the pounds because I might still be losing inches. However, I do not really see much of a difference is this happen to any of you, if so any tips?
      Thanks

      Well recovering from gallbladder removal was a lot like recovering from the modified duodenal switch surgery, twice in 4 months yay 🥳😭. I'm having to battle cravings for everything i shouldn't have, on top of trying to figure out what happens after i eat something. Sigh, let me fast forward a couple of months when everyday isn't a constant battle and i can function like a normal person again! 😞

        I may have to have gall bladder surgery during my weight loss surgery. Not thrilled about it either but do not want 2 recovery times. Just want it over with.

        Thanks for your post. I may need to rethink my decision... :(
