As I called him to dinner, he asked me "what pretentious name does this one have?" He pokes fun at my love of the Epicurious site, but of course he happily devours whatever I put on his plate.
I did better on protein today. Small breakfast, but strong protein at lunch and dinner. Tomorrow I need to find some new recipes for next week - looking for new flavors so we don't feel stuck in rut.
One of the primary "rules" about post-op eating is to make sure you get in the protein first at each meal. In doing so, I became full before I ate the full amount of rice and green beans that I'd put on my plate (served myself 1/3 cup rice, 3/4 cup green beans). So while my plate may look like more than what I've listed for dinner - it is in fact what I ended up consuming. (Panko got a bit toasty - but it was still tasty)
- Dannon Light & Fit raspberry yogurt
- 2.5oz hamburger patty
- 1/3 cup peas
- 1 tbsp Sweet Baby Ray's bbq sauce
- Sargento Light String Cheese
- 3.5 oz serving Panko-Crusted Chicken with Mustard Maple Pan Sauce
- 1/2 cup steamed green beans
- 1/6 cup rice
