I like air fried tofu (just marinaded in soy sauce and garlic) although it might not be good for those with recent surgeries. But I'm 19 years out. Lol. It can be chewy.

I LOVE my air fryer! I think it's the best way to cook most veggies. You should avoid using aerosol cooking spray like Pam because it leaves a sticky residue that builds up in the air fryer over time. I have a Misto oil sprayer that I fill with avocado oil or olive oil, and for most veggies, all I do is lightly spray them with oil, toss with seasonings, and air fry them. Some of my favorites:

The air fryer is also great for cooking chicken wings. I don't even add any oil -- just sprinkle with seasonings (you can go with just salt and pepper, especially if you're going to add sauce, or a meat rub, etc.). And chicken burgers. And chicken/turkey sausage. It's also great for reheating anything baked that would get soggy in the microwave. I don't use it for meat all that much because I usually use my Instant Pot to cook meat, but anything you want crispy is better in the air fryer. I also sometimes make "pizza" in the air fryer -- a 1 net carb Mr. Tortilla plus marinara sauce, mozzarella, and turkey pepperoni.

Thanks! I’m going to make the carrot fries ASAP

I agree with tofu in the air fryer. Amazing! Also, Brussels sprouts and really any veggie. It really works so well for almost anything. I love doing chicken wings in there, and it's really great for reheating all types of leftovers!

I make salmon in the air fryer. I just season with salt and whatever else I'm feeling like that day, spray both sides with olive oil and "fry" at 380. Time depends on the type of salmon. For wild sockeye, 7 min seems to be the sweet spot. For farm-raised - 9 min works for me. I've done cod the same way too. I've made shrimp in it too, but you have to watch the timing as it's so easy to overcook. Usually about 5-6 min. for shrimp.

Oh... and Pinterest has some great recipes and there are some good air fryer groups on FB.

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

        Congrats I’m at 289 now. Its a wonderful feeling, right!?

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
