As most of you know, I’ve been recovering from an extended abdominalplasty & brachioplasty now for a few weeks!
I’m feeling amazing, healing quickly, and my doctors kept attributing my quick success to my nutrition! I’m not sure about you, but as a former obese person, to hear you’re succeeding in nutrition feels like SUCH A WIN. It felt like such a compliment, I’ve come so far!
So, with that being said, I just wanted to share a few quick tips, and some of my favorite meals/products I’ve used the past few weeks while recovering!
I’ve kept breakfast to always a protein shake, sometimes some Maca Cold Brew/ superfood drinks from REBBL. I love their line because they use herbal remedies to promote healthy digestion, vascularity, & anti-stress remedies! Super delicious and a cool mission!
This yogurt bowl, although it looks elaborate, it was ready in a snap! I filled the base of my bowl with my favorite yogurt, Siggi’s 0% vanilla bean yogurt, and topped it with everything I had in sight- chia seeds, fresh fruit, bee pollen, granola, & nut butter. Use whatever you have!
Top them with anything! Cream cheese, deli turkey, tuna salad, spaghetti sauce, or what I did- mashed avocado, slaw mix, & roasted tofu! YUM!
An easy way to add nutritional value to your spaghetti plate is picking a high quality sauce, like the delicious & organic Rao’s Homemade, add plenty of ground veggies, and a lean meat, like venison.
When you go to plate, think 2 parts sauce to 1 part pasta, that way you can load up on the good stuff and still enjoy a lighter amount of carbs.
I’ve stuck to some staple ingredients like pre-made tortillas, no one really has the time to whip them up fresh daily, right? If you do, send me some! Anyways, recently I cannot get enough of the almond flour tortillas by Siete, they make them homemade in their local spot in Texas, & they rule!
Top them with anything! The sesame style sauce, some Asian slaw, and avocado was a hit over here!
I usually keep my snacking-protein, fat, & carb dense! My “go-to” is my favorite sprouted wheat by Angelic Bake House topped with mashed avocado, salt, and either deli style chicken or a runny egg. The best!
Angelic Bakehouse also makes sprouted wheat pizza crusts called “flatzzas”. I buy them in full size, but also keep the mini guys on hand for quick pizza snacks!
I ordered a few hello fresh boxes for the week as well, mainly because it takes the guess work out of “what’s for dinner”, & is usually ready within 30 mins. Plus, Aly can make them, she’s really good with a recipe!
I picked up some Simple Mills banana muffin mix, it’s paleo, gluten free, and damn delicious!
I followed the instructions, topped them each with a slice of banana & bee pollen! Delicious, light, fluffy, and low in sugar!
Leave a comment below, what’s your favorite in house staple, your “go-to” item always on hand? Share your secrets!
