Great for Weight Loss Surgery patients with a small serving size of one cup. Includes finely ground beef, protein rich beans, and spicy Rotel tomatoes and chiles. Most people will eat more than a cup! Serving size is just a guesstimate. Appears to be 16 cups. Submitted by STARSBELOW
This is based on a recipe that my Grandmother used to make. I had it every childhood and young adult birthday, for as long as I can remember. When she no longer made it, my mom did. It's my all time favorite, and I was racking my brain to figure out how to make it WLS friendly!
Note: Original recipe calls for fryer chicken, with skin. Dusted with flour and ginger. Regular soy sauce and regular brown sugar. Served over steamed white rice.Submitted by KATHYP63
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.Submitted by KATHYP63
This is appropriate for the full liquids or soft foods stages, post op (or anytime, for a chocolaty treat). Cooking time is chilling time. This makes 8 quarter cup WLS sized portions. Adjust if you're making larger servings.Submitted by PURPLE1980
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 :) Submitted by DIOSA12267
Random thing I made for a heavy dose of protein. Just grabbed some chicken breasts, 2 eggs, and a medium russet potato then tossed them in a skillet. Salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste. Prep and cook time is just estimated.Submitted by DRAGONEAGLE
This is a very healthy and tasty way to serve oatmeal that has the ability to be customized with the added fruit, spices and sweetener to adjust it for different tastes and create a new flavor every day. It stays with me longer than any other breakfast I eat.
I developed this so I could have oatmeal a lot to help my cholesterol and still get fiber and lots of protein without a lot of calories and not out of bounds for healthy carb consumption.
It makes an oatmeal that is thick enough to add milk if you desire, but is a great consistency for eating alone. If you like thin oatmeal, add more water.Submitted by BEACHSEASTAR
I was trying to make chili with what I had in the fridge and this is what I came up with and it actually turned out really well (my boyfriend loved it!).
It's also low in sodium and has high protein and fiber.Submitted by S_LO_15
