I’m a foodie. But since surgery I really have to find ways to keep my foodie happy. I don’t think I will ever regret the decision to have weight loss surgery as it’s made my life a lot better. Somedays I do struggle that I can’t eat meals like I use to. In my near future there isn’t any big meals. I often take more food then I can physically finish on my plate but never force myself to clear my plate. So how am I keeping my inner foodie happy? I am cooking foods I really and truly enjoy. If it’s not tasty I don’t finish it and I am not tempted by foods and controlled by them like I use to.
Last night I went to an event and I had no interest at all in the food that was spread out. I’ve realized that my portions are small so I need to make them count and be satisfying. My foodie had been satisfied before I went and I drank some iced tea instead of eating.
The one thing I am missing now that the weather is getting warmer is salad. Since my stomach is so small I can’t handle salads in the volume that I use to. If I get two or three mouthfuls of salad I’m lucky. The thing is I know that I need the variety from the leafy greens in my diet. So I am giving greens a go. I am hoping I can hide then into my protein shakes and they will taste delicious. Do you use greens? What brand do you buy? Have you tried a protein powder that has greens mixed into it? Give me some of your feedback
