Fridays dinner was my burrito bowl again but with shrimp and Saturday’s was take out. Ordered the beef loc lac and spicy Thai wings. Ate two wings and like three bites of the beef dish. Unfortunately on Sunday I tried eating the leftovers but I threw it all all up. I think the meat was too tough on my stomach.

I don't think I ever really did. I'm not sure when it happened but rice or Pasta forced it's way into every meal.

Prior to WLS, at parties and potlucks I would turn down the coveted baked macaroni and cheese. There were lots of side eyes but also lots of people willing to divide the spoils 😜

As a kid on spaghetti night I’d eat a bowl of meat sauce and dip garlic bread into it. Pasta just has a weird texture that I don’t like.

Tonight’s dinner for the fam: Pork Souvlakis on a Bun, homemade tzatziki w/ fixins and some guacamole I had to make today cuz our avocados were getting too ripe. Oh, and some homemade seasoned pita chips (ya, i know, greek and mexican flavours...a bit of an old pairing, lol)

I served myself almost 1.5 oz of the pork, some cucumber, tomatoes, red onion, and about 3 tbsp each of the tzatziki and guacamole. Plus iced coffee with Kahlua (not shown) while I was grilling: 343 calories

Ate it all except for a few of the onions, and there was some leftover tzatziki and guac that Mr. ate.

Lol, just another Monday, I'm afraid. Cooking and making meals is like one of my transfer addictions...

Before surgery*: Taco Bell Mexican pizza

After surgery: Mini Mexican pizza (featuring Mr. Tortilla 1 net carb tortillas)

I had to take a break after eating about 1/3 of it because some chicken got stuck on the way down. Went back to it later and ate almost all the rest (added some lettuce and light sour cream after the first picture).

*I probably only had the Taco Bell Mexican pizza once or twice in my life. I rarely went to Taco Bell and this wasn't one of my favorite items on the menu. I was inspired today by a video on how to make your own Mexican pizza since Taco Bell is retiring it from the menu.

Nice! I love the idea of making a post-surgery version of a pre-surgery food! 🏆

As Cher Horowitz would say: "PROJECT!!" *claps hands excitedly*...

Amazing comparison!

I haven't seen a pre/post surgery pic in a while

So yesterday I figured I’d roast the garlic cloves I used for the souvlaki marinade from last night’s dinner for a bit of garnish. Turns out the fam loved them just a la carte and this morning, asked if I could roast some more to eat as a snack. ?!

I was all, ok, but you all are weird.

I had a sample of it and I am now a believer. YUM. I ate 3: 20 calories.

Now we all gotta go gargle with some mouthwash for a while...
