I can finally participate! Got the green light from surgeon to try soft foods. I started with 2oz soft salmon and 1oz green Beans. I finished half the fish and all the green Beans with no issues to speak of, knock on wood!

I felt the need to bake today so most of these will be off to work tomorrow with coworkers- cheesecake brownies, chocolate Peanut Butter marshmallow fudge, crumb top apple pie, maple bacon bars, no bake Cookies, coconut macaroons and sugar cookies with mini M&Ms mixed in.

I always love baking things I can swirl or that have swirls- these brownies, cinnamon rolls, jelly rolls, cinnamon swirl bread… it brings me joy.

I was okay until you said this. <whimpering and drooling>

The recipe is pretty straightforward and I think it could easily be adapted with low carb flour and sugar options like swerve but haven’t tried. I did omit the vanilla and used maple flavor for the bars itself and I know there are sugar free maple flavored syrups on the market that could be used for the glaze. And my secret for not having to actually cook bacon is the real bacon crumbles you find in the aisle with the salad topper stuff. 😂

Whaddya know, we have the same cooking secrets! LOL The main problem with those crumbles is they don't make the whole house smell like bacon frying, which is one of my absolute favorite aromas.

Thanks for the recipe adaptation ideas. I probably shouldn't make them, because I'd want to eat the whole pan, but maybe I will right after surgery, when overindulging isn't an option.

I take almost all of my goodies to work. I usually leave with empty containers. Doctors and nurses are really good at hitting up free sweets. 😂

Okay so I can’t get them to post in the correct order but I found cauliflower Mac and cheese and new cauliflower breadsticks at Publix and that and grilled chicken breasts was dinner. Not bad for weight loss phase the entire plate was about 410 calories which was dinner and some left over for snack. I mostly wanted to post to tell y’all about the breadsticks though because to me they tasted just like the real thing 4EAE6EC0-6F20-4860-9785-559D8F07E1B2.thumb.jpeg.080138900f384e0a0bbe9634404703c5.jpeg

I wonder if calorie wise it would be the same to buy the Velveeta cheese sauce packet separately like they sell at dollar tree and just put that with cauliflower because that’s basically all it was was cauliflower and a cheese sauce pocket. I just thought of that because that would be cheaper and also taste better to me I like the Velveeta cheese sauce flavor.

Let us know if you try it and how it turns out!

      Hello everyone.. I had my surgery on Sept 30th 2021.. and it has been an horrible experience to me. I can't hold down fluids or soft food. so much mucus is coming up!! and I'm spitting all day. I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!

      Hope everyone's doing ok so far.
      Incidence numbers are on the raise again and hospitals need to treat more COVID patients again. Looking with some kind of dread towards autumn/winter season.

        I am post op day 2 now , you’re there pretty much the whole day. They send you home with a lot of support. Are you local to Birmingham and driving in for the surgery or staying at a hotel in the area?

      Doing to much protein can make you gain weight? Because I gain 3 pound one day and I’m so frustrated 😭🥺 I did a hard work to be in 220 😭😭
