HI all!

I volunteered for my daughters field trip tomorrow, and its hiking. I cannot make my normal meals, they will have to be snacky. So far I am thinking beef stick, cheese stick, Protein Shake. These might be enough for the day as long as I eat Breakfast before I go. It is an all day field trip.

TIA!

I recently tried a very natural Protein Bar made with nuts and egg white Protein that I really liked. It was the Mammoth Bar in the goji berry flavor, available on Amazon. They're pricey but very good ingredients, and I found them to be super filling. 12g protein. I'd say they're a lot like the Rx bars, which are a bit cheaper and easier to find in stores. Worth keeping on hand for hikes or when you're going to be out all day.

cheese. It is the answer to all of life's problems post WLS. Compact, filling, nutritious and portable at room temperature.

Further down the line nuts and fruit will be your best friends.

If you can avoid processed bars then that might be good. If not, the bars might be better than the available (more processed) alternatives such as fast food.

Good luck - I hope you enjoy the field trip!

What about Turkey Jerky? I found some snack packs at Walmart (they are actually called Turkey sausage bites) that have 10g Protein for 120 calories. The pack is pretty big too. I’m not super good at macros but it’s 7g fat and 2g carbs??

Great suggestions above. I’d suggest taking an electrolyte drink with you or sachets or tabs you can add to your Water when you top it up. It will give you extra boosts of energy. Just be warned they can be sweet so dilute them by adding extra water to the mix.

Enjoy the hike - how lovely to share in your daughter’s field trip.

      Still purging all of the larger clothing. This morning, a shirt that I ADORED wearing ended up on top. Hard to let it go, but it was also hard to let go of those habits that also no longer serve my highest good. Onward and upward!

      Well, tomorrow I go in for an impromptu hiatal hernia repair after ending up in the ER over the weekend because I couldn't get food down and water was moving at a trickle... I've been having these symptoms on and off for a few weeks but Sunday was the worst by far and came with chest pain and trouble breathing. The ER PA thinks it is just esophagitis and that the surgeon and radiologist are wrong. But the bariatric surgeon swears it is a hernia, possibly a sliding one based on my symptoms. So he fit me into his schedule this week to repair it! I hope he's right and this sorts it out. He's going to do a scope afterwards to be sure there is nothing wrong with the esophagus. Here's hoping it all goes well!!
