Today was a banner day in my gastric bypass "journey." At long last, I found something my pouch doesn't tolerate.
On the message boards, you see a lot of people carrying on about foods they can no longer "tolerate." I didn't know what that meant. Now I do. My beloved, delicious City Roots salad mix hurt my pouch a lot AND put me into some kind of coma. Because I'm crazy, I ate the rest of the salad anyway even though I had to take a break to let some of the pain subside. I still have about one serving of the sprouts left; I'm thinking maybe if I cook them they will be less painful to eat?
- Cinnamon-"sugar" protein pancakes! 1/4 cup Friendship lowfat cottage cheese (45 kcals, 8g protein, 1.5g carbs, 0.8g fat), 2 tbsp. Egg Beaters (15 kcals, 3g protein, 0.5g carbs, 0g fat), 1 scoop Nectar vanilla bean torte protein powder (90 kcals, 23g protein, 0g carbs, 0g fat), baking powder, 2 tbsp. water, cinnamon, Stevia in the Raw, 1 tbsp. FF ICBINB (5 kcals) and 2 tbsp. SF Mrs. Butterworth's syrup (10 kcals, 2g net carbs). Total - (165 kcals, 34g protein, 4g net carbs, 0.8g fat). I made this because I only had about 1/4 cup of cottage cheese left; I hadn't realized last night how low I was on cottage cheese, so I couldn't make my traditional early morning meal of a protein frosty. But WOW, what a happy accident. I got a little too full from this because it's very dense, but it tasted like French toast! No, the texture isn't like real French toast, pancakes, or waffles (it's not light; very firm and sort of rough), but it's an absolutely perfect substitute for an RNY post-op.
