Is there a reason you don’t use regular milk? That smoothie wouldn’t work for my plan bc of the carb to Protein ratio since almond milk is skimpy on protein. Regular milk would make it work for me. Just curious.

Protein Mug Cake. One scoop Protein Powder (works best with one that has egg protein or caesin as part of it not just whey isolate), 1tsp milk and 1/4 tsp baking powder in the microwave for 1 min. Ate it in about 20 mins.

I still have trouble gauging how much to serve myself even at five years out.

That is super interesting. I'm pretty good at estimating what I will be able to eat. I have nothing to contribute to this thread because my after is nearly always an empty plate.

Yes, but you could show a pre-surgery serving and a serving that you would eat now.

Those look great! what recipe do you use? They count as soft foods, correct?

Soft Proteins, yes.

I used my own recipe.

2 eggs
15oz part skim ricotta
1/4 grated parmesan
1tsp ground garlic
1tsp black pepper
Dash of basil
1tsp Italian seasoning
1tsp salt

Mix all these well.

Spoon 1 to 2 teaspoons into each spot on a mini muffin baking pan that you’ve sprayed with Pam.

Sprinkle a touch of reduced fat mozzarella on top of each.

Bake 20 minutes at 375.

I’m thinking of making a bariatric cooking/recipe blog. I love cooking and being inventive and really want to stay within my approved foods. So it may be neat!

1/4 cup grated parmesan?

I didn’t measure it exactly when I put it in. It was likely closer to 2 tbsp, but may have been up to 4 tbsp (1/4 cup). It’s really dependent on your taste. I like strong cheeses. 

Lol oops!  Just noticed that I left out cup in the original post and that you were probably just asking for clarification and not questioning whether or not it was too much Parmesan cheese.

On your next batch try adding non flavored Protein powder. Not sure if it will bake well or not even make a difference? Plan on making a bake myself this week, maybe will do today after seeing how delicious those look.

Oh man! I wanted to make the ricotta bake, but I’m not allowed red sauce yet! This was my consolation prize. 😊

Thanks! It sounds delicious! I'm still on very soft foods, so I'm always trying to add to my recipes. Thanks so much!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
