My dad's "go to snack". Low fat, with 8 grm. protein. Great for WLS snack/meal.
When I want extra protein, I add 3 oz. of skinless cooked chicken breast to my cup. Adjust protein and calories accordingly.

I found this recipe on OH, without nutritional information. Tweeked it a bit, and here it is with the nutritional information. Very WLS friendly.

One of my saving graces after WLS. When my pouch is irritated, it will always love some slightly spicy egg drop soup

Greek Turkey Burger
Very Good 4.3/5

You'll forget all about beef burgers once you try these. Salty and rich feta is mixed with lean ground turkey and Greek herbs for juicy and delicious burgers.

I need protein in the morning or I'm starving before 10! I like to sleep until the last minute possible, but need breakfast on the go. I was buying those Jimmie Dean Egg White sandwiches, when I thought "I can make these MYSELF, and CHEAPER too!" I cook up a dozen egg whites at a time - the LAZY way--I spray a silicone muffin pan with non-stick spray and place 1 egg white in each muffin cup and bake at 400 until done (about 15 minutes). I let them cool and freeze them in ziplocs. This is a great way to use up your eggs before they get old and saves me time in the morning. By the time I toast my multigrain thin (or you can use a light english muffin) the egg white are heated up in the microwave (about 30 seconds). I slap them on my toasted mutigrain thins with a slice of cheese and head out the door!

Ditch the tortilla and get ready for some YUM in a small pouch friendly breakfast or brunch.

After weight loss surgery, I was getting bored with plain ol' scrambled eggs. Here's a twist on a classic that will have your taste buds and pouch happy :)

WLS friendly.
Pork has been a very friendly protein for me since WLS. However it has a tendency to get a bit dry. Therefore, I have been trying ways to add a sauce, or moisture to top off my chop or tenderloin. This is yummy, crunchy, reminds me of the holidays. The cinnamon and nutmeg go great with the sweet onion and crunchy tart apples.

A friend gave this recipe to me a long time ago, and I only recently tried it. These are very good, especially considering they are sugar free and very low calorie and fat!
