I thought I would start sharing info on the quick and easy meals I make as someone who is blind and has had Gastric Bypass Surgery.
I like doing things the easy way. I used to make all kinds of things in the kitchen but some things changed after surgery. I eat at different times of the day than my Wife does and it just doesn’t make sense for either of us to make food for the both of us on a regular basis. We eat allot of the same things these days, so when she makes something that I want, I’ll try to arrange my eating so I’ll be hungry around the time she is making food. We’ve done this with tortilla pizzas and some yummy bean dip with chicken, bacon, cheese and other stuff added in.
The rest of the time I make food just for me. One quick and easy thing I like is 3 Jimmy Dean sausage links, a Mission Carb Balanced Fajita size whole wheat tortilla, and some shredded cheese.
Its just a matter of putting the sausage links in the microwave for 1 minute, adding them to the tortilla, and enough cheese to cover the sausage links. Put that back in the microwave for 15 seconds and you’ve got something yummy and hot to eat. Even almost 5 years out from surgery, that fills me up.
Another slight variation on that is to use sliced pepperoni, some seasoned chicken breast strips, bacon pieces, and cheese. That is yummy either cold or heated in the microwave.
I have this rule for knowing if there is too much food on the tortilla, if you can’t wrap the two side edges of the tortilla over each other, there is too much food, at least for me.
If you like omelets, I love the Jimmy Dean three cheese omelets. Sometimes I’ll jazz one up with some bacon pieces sprinkled on top with just a little bit of shredded cheese or sometimes just some Mrs. Dash to add to the flavor.
There are many easy and yummy ways to eat after weight loss surgery. One key part when shopping is to know the nutritional details of foods. My favorite place for that along with directions is Directions For Me.
They have all of the info for name brand foods and items and many store brands too. Here is a link to something I had last night, just for an example.
