Found these!!! It’s too much bread for me in one sitting so I’ll likely not eat any (but my family will 😅) Has anyone else tried these yet?

I can finally participate!!!!

I made some low-fat ricotta bites and they are ahhhmazing!

Also- I made so many, because I’m bringing some to my surgery buddy to try!

I’m usually never hungry when I wake up for work but I’d already been up a couple hours before making the kids dinner. They had sweet stuffed sweet potatoes and sloppy joes made with TVP. I chose a savory loaded sweet potato instead. The black Beans are tossed with cumin and tajin and the sweet potatoes had pumpkin pie spice on them when roasting.

I’ve only managed 4 bites so I'm packing the rest for work along with some roasted bell pepper strips.

I need to see if there is a post-surgery thread for vegetarian or vegan recipes

Hello everyone. New here and waiting for gastric sleeve surgery to be approved by insurance. Meanwhile, I like to visit this thread for inspiration. I do have a question for GreenTealael: how do you cook your smoked chicken breast (I have a stove top smoker and can't seem to find a good method for cooking boneless chicken breast) and your beautiful tofu??? Thank you!

Hi!

My gastric sleeve surgery is coming up August 23!
I can’t wait.

Good luck to you

There is in the nutrition section but it’s not updated frequently

I tend to eat a lot of plant based meals now. I do have the occasional animal Protein but it’s mostly grains, dairy, and veggies now. Plant based Proteins just sit a whole lot better for me since surgery.
I know I’m not the only one on this thread who does the same thing.

Were these good, did you try them yet? Where did you find them?

What stores have you seen these? I have such a hard time finding healthy options. I live in tiny town and no one carries the healthy stuff.

These are Aldi store brand. I don’t plan to eat these myself (too thick, I eat the sliced bread version) but my family said they taste exactly like regular burger Buns.

Great, thanks I'll give them a try when I am able to eat the modified regular diet.😊

Man I wish I had an Aldi. I am going to visit my friend on Thursday though. Perhaps I can talk her into going with me.

Yay, I can finally contribute "food before and afters" to this post. I started soft foods today. I guess the restriction kicked in! I think I gave myself way too much for my first meal. Perhaps I stopped to early, but I felt like I didn't want to push it. I will have to learn what my full signals truly are, but I think I felt something that made me say "enough".

Served myself:

3 oz of scrambled eggs

1 oz canned peaches in light s.f. Syrup drained

Ate: about 1 oz ? of eggs & 2 dices/cubes of peaches.

Does anyone weigh their food after, so they know how much they ate? I didn't think of it until after I cleaned up.

Nice! Welcome back to food 😬

I’ve never even thought to weighed or measured afters!

Varied up the veggies in the zuppa toscana I made. Added green peppers, carrots, and subbed half the potatoes for sweet potatoes. Had with a copycat Olive Garden salad.
My mistake was snacking on 3 olives, a pepperocini, 4 pickle slices, and 3 tater tots while making and plating dinner for kids.
I can’t wait to have more Soup though. 😍

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
