I've been eating a half serving of Special K High Protein (7.5g of Protein) and a half cup of 1% milk (4g of protein). Fills me up and I always seem to lose better with that Breakfast than any other.

But, has anyone tried these? I get mine at Thrive Market (on line) but I think they have them at Trader Joe's now...as well as Amazon. 90 calories and 9g of protein. I like the jalapeno ones best!!

Just crack an egg. I could prepare the ingredients myself but this is great for when I’m lazy. I use an egg white instead of a whole egg.

Hi, I’ve been lurking for a few weeks while I was waiting to start my general diet stage. I had ate this for breakfast this morning and it was really good. Breakfast has been a struggle and this was a nice addition. Thanks for recommending.

Scored these at Aldi today. They are both delicious. 80 calories for 2 tbsp but can easily make a serving out of only 1 tbsp and make it just 40 calls!

Thanks! The whipped mixed berry from Philly cheese is also very good (25 calories for 2 Tbsp if I recall correctly!).

This guy is a great follow on YouTube. He’s crazy strict on what he eats but the information and products he discusses are valuable and (I think) worth your time. I ignore him when I disagree with him, lol

He also shows new products that hit stores. I’ve found a lot of new items since watching a handful of his videos. I posted this in the before after thread, it fits better here!

I was at a funeral and ran into a friend who had lost a lot of weight and told me that she had WLS. She told me to watch a You Tube channel Flav City with Bobby Parrish. Bobby goes into stores like costco, Whole Foods, Walmart, etc and shows what is healthy to buy. It turns out that the ingredient list is the most important part of the labeling to look at. Bobby breaks down a lot stuff that relates to nutrition when reading the ingredient list. I'm sure after watching Flav City you might want to rethink some of your choices in food. I've found this channel very useful. He is also a chef and has live cooking demos of healthy dishes he prepares. Give it a look and see if it might help you as well.

Green giant bacon and cheese mashed cauliflower. When I reheat each day in little ramekins I mix in canned flakes chicken from costco and it is delicious. 1 frozen mashed cauliflower makes lunch for all week.

Look what I found at Aldi! Protein wraps! Haven’t tried them yet, so we’ll see how they taste. I got the red pepper hummus

So the red pepper hummus was fine. It wasn't particularly flavorful, but not objectionable either. In my WL stage it would have been useful to get a Protein boost. But in maintenance just eating normally I'd probably opt for a regular tortilla.

Oh my I must go get some of this! Sweet baby ray’s was my favorite barbecue sauce I had no idea they made one with no sugar added. Oooo that looks amazing

I tried this last night. So yummy. Smoky, thick, and delicious. Family had no idea it was sugar free.

banana ALMOND MILK is my savior. I love it so much. Far less carbs than bananas which I love in smoothies and have missed terribly.

I mix 1/2 cup with chocolate PB2 and a single serving Fage Greek Yogurt along with a couple drops of chocolate stevia. This is my 23 gram Protein Shake I drink every morning. 180 calories 13 carb 23 Protein.

The other things I eat at least a few times a week and always need in the house:

1% cottage cheese with a teaspoon of REAL Ranch dressing and a small finely chopped Tomato.

Crack An Egg with the ham or bacon added only.

Peel and eat shrimp with cocktail sauce from Whole Foods.

Old Wisconsin Turkey bites

Rotisserie chicken.

Riced cauliflower

Fresh Apples or right now Pears (perfect this time of year but a lot of sugar so just a slice or two at a time)

93% lean cooked Ground beef and crunchy taco shells with a good fresh pico.

Brie

pretzels

This is pretty much my diet at 4 months post op.

Just tried these from Trader Joes and loved them. Definitely a good on the go snack!
