@Starwarsandcupcakes is that cornucopia of food your food for an entire day, or just during work hours???

I work 12hr night shifts so it’s food the entire day as I’m usually never hungry when I first get up and I’m usually not hungry after 3-4am. There are days when I pack about the same things and don’t eat it all. Lots of times I bring stuff home and say I’ll try again the next day.

Tonight’s dinner was really just cleaning out the fridge. 😂

Bulgur made with flax milk, Water, maple and vanilla extracts, and a smidge of maple Syrup. I topped mine with lactose free Fage vanilla yogurt (has vanilla Beans in it!!), dried cranberries, sliced almonds, and a drizzle of honey.

JUST egg vegan egg substitute with melted cheese with sour cream and salsa.

Turkey bacon that I obviously didn’t eat. 🤷‍♀️

Kids also had canned cinnamon rolls that I scrounged a tiny piece from. Not worth a whole roll. I’d rather have more of the bulgur if I had more room! I’ll pack the leftovers for lunch tomorrow night though.

Came out to about 380 calories (not including the turkey bacon).

@GreenTealael that balloon topper is adorable...did you make it or did you buy it like that??!?!? Also the amount of frosting you have between the two layers of cake is ca-ray-zeee, lol. HBD, BF!

The ballon topper i bought at a party store, but you have to assemble it yourself.
It really wasn’t that much frosting (60% of a jar used) but it was the whipped type that looks fluffier.

Cottage cheese, blueberries, raspberries, dates, pumpkin seeds, black pepper and cayenne.

Gonna plop down on the couch and plan to eat it all as I watch Grey's Anatomy: 227 calories

Mr. asked me what I wanted for Mother's Day earlier this week. So I said I'd like a charcuterie board.

I should have been more specific that I meant the actual wooden board, cuz the top pic below was delivered to me yesterday afternoon. LOL.

So now, I am addicted to making little charcuterie spreads on a slate cheese plate I already own. It feels like I'm doing arts and crafts! 🤣

Luckily the fam loves charcuterie as much as I do so I can just keep making them over and over until my stash runs out. The bottom two pics below are shots of the two we already polished off from yesterday. #yum.

P.S. Unfortunately I failed to measure and keep track of what I ate, so I'm going to guess I ate like 500 worth of charcuterie calories.

dinner was a lil taco salad.

Iceberg. Ground beef. Sharp cheese. A lil (😂 a lot really) of ranch and a lil Quest Protein chips crumbled on top. Finished it all. Ended up just picking out the meat at the end. Lettuce is a slider for me 🤷‍♀️. But I’d rather eat that than the 3 handfuls of Doritos that used to accompany my “salads”.

I think this will be the last of the charcuterie boards I will be making for a while as this is the last of the cheese and meats from last week's delivery. :(

Grilled up some shrimp on the BBQ and made up a plate of "caprese salad" sans basil as the grocery was out of it (but is it really caprese without basil??? lol)

Anyhoo, I ate one skewer of shrimp, one tomato-cheese slice, some blue cheese, some asiago cheese, 7 crackers & bit of fig jam: 508 calories (and 6oz of rosé before hand, +125 calories)

I only WISH I had an Aldi's near me 😫

But yeah, they are some brand of "artisanal" crisps that are AWESOME. This one was cranberry and poppyseed. I personally love any of the ones with nuts and seeds in them. #YUM. (My fave is pistachio fig #superYUM):

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

      I honestly haven’t weighed myself since surgery, looking forward to doing it!
