Okay, so since we are all talking about what we eat... here I go. I am not very exciting and eat sort of strange but I think that is sort of standard for Lapbanders. Also, my restriction has loosened slightly so I am able to eat cereal again and I have been enjoying it for breakfast.
Breakfast: 3/4 c Honey Nuts and Oats with Almonds and 1 c skim milk
Lunch: 3 ounces chicken breast chopped up with 2 cups lettuce, cucumbers and Asian Sesame dressing
Snack: low carb chocolate slim fast (This is a creepy guilty pleasure, I love this crap)
Dinner: 3 ounces chicken breast chopped, 1 boiled egg chopped up, craisins, 2 cups lettuce, cheese, and Raspberry Pecan Dressing
I don't usually eat salads 2x a day but I wanted to use up the rest of the lettuce, and I work until 9 tonight.
I will say... salads are sort of standard for me.. I love them and they go down well. I often also eat soup for lunch because I am pretty tight that time of day.. and often Greek yogurt for breakfast. I also eat tuna out of the can mixed with some mayo and chopped pickles, anything I make for my husband (spaghetti, lasagna, stir fry, tacos, chili) all made with white meat. I rarely eat red meat.. not because it is a problem but more because I got out of the habit. Also, pasta has never been an issue for me... no matter how tight I am.. in fact it tends to be a slider.
