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)

      What's your experience w/the Dumping Syndrome?
      How long did it last?
      How did you cope w/it?
      Has the dumping syndrome gotten worse each time more as the years go by?
       
      I had the Gastric Bypass in 7/2015. The last couple of times i got the Dumping Syndrome twice last year, and once this year have been the worst. My last one was on Easter Sunday. I felt Fatigue, nauseous, gagging, shortness of breath, laid down holding my tummy, wanting to cry, feeling desperate, it got to a point where i basically was unconscious. Is it normal to fall asleep without no warning and waking up out of nowhere to "wth happened, how long was i out for"? It's gotten scary, and don't know if this is part of the dumping syndrome. I've had more times but not as bad as the last couple of times. 😢

      When I get my surgery and lose weight I might write a book about my weight loss surgery so I can help anyone who started at my weight, or who think about getting the surgery.
