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!

      Hi I'm Sam, currently 7 seven years out of VSG and looking into revision due to weight gain. 
      I'll be the first to say I lived life a little too hard and am looking for a second chance at a healthier life.

      Lololol...sad but true.. make sure you have probiotics in your diet daily. It helps your b m not have the horrible odor since we do not have the duodenum. I don't understand why they take that part out but they shouldn't leave it. Everything you eat and you can smell. But when you get back to normal eating it is off the chain.

        I’m 67 and will be 68 when I have my surgery at the beginning of next year.

        I’m 67 and had surgery in September.

    • HeBrokeTheChains

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?
