Energy Boost Breakfast for Lap Band

Submitted by: LABCONFIDENTIAL

Introduction

Use this blend of Chia, Fig and fage yogurt to get your day off to a great nutritional start. Loaded with Potassium, calcium and protein - via chia seeds, figs and fage yogurt. Easy to digest, not a gut bomb. When it comes to starting your day as a lap bander, my take is start it off right - fill the pouch with a good source of protein packed energy. Use this as a meal, or keep in the fridge as your go to "I'm hungry and have to eat right now" back up plan. It is not the sugary yogurt you may be accustomed to - so get over it. If you must have sweetener, use stevia lightly, or honey. Avoid No artificial sweeteners (Pink, blue or yellow packets) due to sugar alcohols they produce.

Ingredients

    Fage Yogurt
    Chia Seeds
    Dried California missions figs

Tips

Super high protein, natural sugars from figs, great for filling the lap band pouch with the essentials to protein load for the day.

This is a thick 'glop' of food. As a bander, sometimes I just want easy to swallow, easy to pouch load, get it down the hatch and go meals. Easy to prepare in advance and keep on hand.


Directions

Mix chopped figs, chia seeds into Fage yogurt and stir.
Add a few water if you'd like it with a creamier consistency.
