Sunday brunch with BFF and our Kids.

I ordered the smoked salmon benny and the Kid got mascarpone stuffed french toast.

What made it into my tummy: one of the bennys (including the English muffin base) + one Breakfast sausage link from BFF’s plate (not shown) + 1 bite of the Kid’s french toast: estimated at 357 cals consumed.

Our leftovers were promptly gobbled up by the boys when we got home…too bad cuz I really wanted to eat the salmon later.

Taught one of my kids how to make orange chicken. No cals we’re tracked because although it’s homemade it required real sugar which I didn’t measure. I had mine over wilted lettuce.

Oh God, hollandaise sauce. There was a place not far from me that made the best hollandaise you could happily eat jugs of it. Now pour it over some of @Kris77’s asparagus & I’ll be yours life. Yes I’m that easy.

Will have the lamb waiting @GreenTealael if you have some of that orange chicken with you. Yum. 😉

Score!

Turns out the boys didn’t eat all of yesterday’s brunch leftovers after all and I split what I found in the fridge with Mr.

I got: 1/4 of a salmon egg benny, 1 breakfast sausage, a bit of melons, about 1/2 a cup of leftover thai beef curry from last night, and a spoonful of pickled onions leftover from i don’t know when, lol. Oh and an Almond Roca chocolate candy (for those that haven’t had an Almond Roca, its like fatter, mini-er version of a Skor bar covered in almonds…YUM)

Ate everything except the sausage (which i will eat later) and the bread of the benny and the onions (which i tossed). 324 calories for what I ate (including the sausage for later).

Long time no post. I mean to…. But I always forget. Let’s start with tonight’s dinner and work backwards from there-

This lovely roasted corned beef melt with sautéed garlic spring mix, Gouda, havarti, and Dijon mustard on sourdough.

Tracking is for the whole sandwich I clearly didn’t eat because I made the mistake of having it eyes bigger than my stomach and eating the cooler melted cheese that I know doesn’t sit well. (I can still feel it in my chest almost an hour later).

Now onto the various workdays (I pack all my day’s calories for workdays) I’ve packed and didn’t post.

Various items included in different meals included- barbecue jackfruit, drunken red cabbage (red cabbage braised in butter, shallot, red wine, orange juice with dried cranberries and raisins), some chipotle baked Beans, broccoli slaw, pickled radishes, creamy cucumber salad, a mock mushroom and spinach risotto (made with minute rice), a red lentil curry, and who knows what else.

Friend dropped off Montreal Bagels direct from Montreal this morning! So of course we had to eat them.

Ate 1/2 a bagel with mounds of garlic cream cheese and some pistachios: 300 calories.

This is my first time posting in this thread. Surgery almost 5 months ago. Today I used about 100g of egg product and 28g of reduced fat cheddar cheese plus a little salt (trying to get my blood pressure up since I'm dizzy all the time, but I don't like salt much).

I ate about half. 60 calories, 9 g Protein for the half I ate.

Also, this is my favorite plate. Orange is my favorite color and I love the geometric pattern. It's a "salad" plate, although it seems almost a dinner size plate to me. I never use the larger size anymore.

Ground turkey stroganoff for lunch today. I used 20oz of lean ground turkey and 16 oz of baby bella mushrooms. It made 8 servings. On the left is the serving, to which I added FF greek yogurt. I could only eat about half today. Usually I can eat the full serving (about a half cup plus about 1.5 oz of yogurt). I was trying to also eat some roasted fennel I made, but I didn't make much progress.

Thanks for this great recipe!

You can add to the topic in the liquid phase too!

ie How much you can drink in 15 mins, 30 mins etc.

People wonder if they are drinking too much too fast all of the time.

Also Protein Shake recipes if you find good ones!

I made breakfast nachos for dinner last night. Homemade corned beef hash, homemade queso, and scrambled eggs over thin tortilla chips.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
