For those watching the super bowl or having a party, what dishes are you making? I’m thinking about some smoked chicken wings on the big green egg but curious what others might be making. Post op things are limited but temptations are every where at a party!

We host every year, even when I was a week post op! 😃 each year has gotten a little better though. This years menu contains: chili, pulled pork sandwiches, baked chicken wings, stuffed bell pepper “nachos”, deviled eggs, cheese and crackers, chips and homemade salsa & guacamole, my non traditional 7layer dip with chicken and cucumber Slices & hummus.

Very easy and healthy.

Bake your own tortilla chips and serve them with homemade or store bought pico de Gallo. You do have to use a little oil with the chips, but not much.

Stop making excuses to eat junk

I don’t see people here making excuses to eat junk-I see people making good plans to stay with healthy stuff during a real life situation. Good job to those planning ahead to stay on track! We’ll have a veggie tray, deli meat tray, and cheese tray that I’m planning to pick from at our party. Maybe a couple pieces of fruit too. And I’m stocking up on Vitamin Water zero as well, but will fit in a glass of wine by running on the treadmill in the morning before the party.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 cups cooked chicken shredded
  • 1/2 cup Frank's Original Red Hot Sauce
  • 8 oz (250g) g block cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup white Cheddar cheese freshly shredded
  • 1/4 cup American cheddar freshly shredded
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese (optional to serve)
  • 2 teaspoons green onions, sliced ( or chives)
  • Celery sticks carrot sticks, tortilla chips, crusty bread pieces, potato chips, for serving

INSTRUCTIONSimage.gif.fa769afae69a4a2c447be6edaa384b77.gifimage.gif.65301dbe15f2b2d93463271bc690ad19.gifimage.gif.6c86c4c598b15d7330a66b60a26ec295.gif

  • Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Arrange oven rack to the middle of your oven.
  • In an 8-inch cast-iron skillet (or an ovenproof pan), melt the butter over medium-high heat. Sauté garlic until fragrant (30 seconds). Add the chicken and hot sauce and simmer until sauce has thickened and reduced by half (about 2 minutes).
  • Reduce heat to low and stir in cream cheese; mix until combined. Take off heat, stir through sour cream and top with both cheddar cheese(s) over the top.
  • Bake until bubbling around the edges and the cheese has melted (about 10 minutes). Broil (or grill) for a further minute to brown on top.
  • Immediately garnish with blue cheese and green onions. Serve with vegetable sticks, chips, crusty bread pieces for dipping.

NOTES

  • If you don't have a cast-iron skillet or oven-proof pan: prepare all ingredients as per recipe instructions above in a regular pan on the stove. Then transfer buffalo dip to a 1-quart (1-litre) baking dish.
  • You can use rotisserie chicken.
  • Don't like blue cheese? Feel free to omit it.
  • Halve the hot sauce amount for a milder dip.
  • Add more hot sauce for spicier dip.

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.

      Just came from my GPs office. He would want me upping to 1500kcals a day. Have no idea on how I'm gonna do this - a year ago it would been an issue to come _down_ to 1500 kcals 😂
