I find these at costco. They are so creamy and so much cheaper than the Starbucks egg bites. The Flavcity guy recommended them too. They also have a ham and cheese one too.

These are my absolute favorite! This flavor particularly is the best of all of them in my opinion.

I would not eat this - I have to be very very careful with artificial sweeteners. It has erythritol and sorbitol both which cause me to have the runs really really really badly. I cannot drink any of the weight loss shakes or meal replacers or these "diet bars" no zero calorie sweetened yogurt, no low cal/low sugar ice creams unless I read the ingerdients really carefully. Anyone with celiac disease of gluten intolerance also should be VERY careful with these.

I'm the exact same way and I'm pre-op. Literally the only artificial sweetener that doesn't give me gas or the runs is Sucralose.

Has anyone tried shrewd food Protein puffs? Someone recommended them (they sell on Amazon) but I am curious to know if anyone else likes them.

They sell these at Walmart and they are just 35 calories and “snack” size is perfect for us.

Update: I went ahead and ordered these and tried them. I do not recommend them. The Quest chips are better.

I was wondering about them too. Too bad. What was wrong with them?

Well I think part of it was that the nacho cheese flavor (the first I tried out of the variety pack) looked like cheese balls but tasted nothing like them. They were more the consistency and crunch of croutons but nacho cheese flavored. I also tried the pizza flavor and was not a fan. Then I tasted the desert ones (cookies and cream and strawberries and cream) and for lack of better description they were too vanilla (which I stole from my hubbies reaction (just Blah to me). They do make croutons which I am waiting for a salad to try and I think they may actually be good because that’s the consistency the others had. I will update if so cause Protein packed croutons would be a great product to have in our bag of tricks. All that being said, if you are not a consistency person, I would try them because the flavors weren’t bad and my best friend loves them. They have the variety pack (including the croutons) on Amazon.

I’m sure it’s in here somewhere but I don’t have the time to go through every post…. Can someone recommend a low sugar marinara or Tomato sauce that’s good for the ricotta bake? Thank you in advance! You guys are the best!

I like Rao’s marinara. Kind of expensive, but worth it in my opinion.

You can always make your own Tomato sauce/Passata & totally control the ingredients. It’s pretty easy. Just blanch your tomatoes & peel off their skin. Quarter them & cut out the seeds. You can cook them on the stove or roast them in the oven. You can cook up onion with the tomato too. Add herb & spices, salt & pepper as you want. Even a splash of balsamic vinegar - brings out the tomatoes natural sweetness. No need for sugar. When cooked blend & sieve. Freezes well too so you can make in bulk.

Rao’s is the best but if you want something cheaper, Newman’s Own marinara is very good and has no added sugar.

Rao’s is absolutely the best. I figure since I’m not eating that much spending the extra for good marinara is worth it.

Thank you all! Ok! Rao’s it is! Do you blend and strain or use as is for puréed stage? I start REAL food tomorrow! Puréed or not, I’m stoked! 21 days felt long! 😆.
Any other meal/recipe suggestions for the phase that you love?
love this group!

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

      2. SleeverSk

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
