Cold lunches?



Recommended Posts

I'm in the early phases of being able to eat real food (6 weeks out). Typically, I take egg salad, ricotta bake, or Beans and cheese to work. I have to work offsite for a week without a microwave. I can take egg salad, but don't want to eat that every day. Any other good, easy to digest, protein-rich foods that I can take in my insulated lunch bag? for lunch? Thanks!

tuna or salmon cottage cheese with egg salad, turkey cheese deli rollups, insulated containers of things like Soup, chili, etc, leftover meats from the night before with raw veg like tomatoes and avocado, etc. Nut butters/apple slices, light cheese wedges, salads, cold leftover salmon, cold leftover asparagus/broccoli/green beans/brussels sprouts, etc.

Honestly, I try to keep lunch (and brekky if I have it) utilitarian--about getting the Protein and nutrients in and not making it about variety or pleasing my taste buds. Then dinner can be a little more satisfying in that area.

I also wrap healthy Protein deli meat in lettuce to avoid the bread or usual wraps to avoid the carbs. I also make 1 or 2 % cottage cheese, add a half scoop or whole scoop of six star Protein, add 1/2 c. sliced peaches or pineapple chunks.

I also add some stevia or artificial sweeteners to taste.

Thanks all. I just realized on the app you can’t tell what board this is. I’m looking for vegetarian options (I think I posted on the veggie board)

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
