So, this was a staple before my operation… then it was a snack and it had two eggs, beans, bacon, toast and cheese…
now this is the Post Gastric Sleeve version:
One Poached Egg, two table spoons of baked beans, one table spoon of guacamole.
This is dinner. Remember Stomach is now 180mg to 200mg in size.
I had a poached egg for breakfast as well as a weetbix and a little bit of pear purée, but i have not eaten since, only had liquids.
It’s very filling and has a lot of protein in it.
Beans= 1.5gm (assuming 30gm of beans)
so i am going to go with 15gms of protein in that meal.
The daily target is 60gms.
I obviously haven’t counted sugar or calories. I am aware this is not the lowest carbs possible but it’s definitely lower than adding bread for eg.
I am now dairy free so no parmesan!
The guacamole is made fresh by us every week and kept in the fridge in air tight containers, we squash avocados, add lemon, lime, salt and olive oil. Kids take it to school with carrots and they generally have it with tacos once a week.
For my first poached egg I am very stoked!
The dietician advises me some people find eggs difficult post surgery, my advice is to eat slow, take small bites, chew a lot and wait a minute if possible between mouthfuls!
It’s amazing how many habits I have broken while thinking of all this.
Today’s notable bad habit… loading more food into my mouth to chew while still chewing or swallowing food…. overwork/overfill the stomach and eating muscles!
Happy eating 🙂
