So...I've been eating the same breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the past three days. I've tried to streamline my meal prep as much as possible, and I think it's worked out pretty well.
It's no secret that I love the cottage cheese pancakes that I first mentioned in this post, but I was kind of hesitant to make them ahead of time to take to school. I shouldn't have been. They warm up in the microwave just wonderfully, and are such a treat. I think this may be my favorite breakfast of all. They taste like the cheese blintzes I used to get at IHOP. I pureed some thawed, frozen strawberries with a packet of Equal to pour on top. I'm getting better at making three evenly sized pancakes.
After the first flip:
Lunch has been some tuna salad and 5 reduced-fat Ritz. Check out my cool, lap band sized containers. I remember buying them at Home Goods last fall when surgery was still a far-off dream.
On Tuesday night I made a big pot of homemade chili. It's still not quite chili weather here in Arkansas, but I had all the ingredients on hand and it sounded so good. My chili recipe is very simple...just a pound of lean ground beef, a can of Bush's Chili Beans in Mild Sauce, a can of Rotel, and a packet of French's Chili-O seasoning. I also like to stir in a slice of Borden 2% processed American cheese. Because I'm fancy like that. ;) I finished it off with a spoonful of the Oikos Red Pepper Dip instead of sour cream.
And my daily totals:
