So...90 days Post Op, my Low Carb Diet Is...

...pretty normal. I've of course written more about that in my Nissen Fundoplication blog, but for the first 3 months I ate mostly low carb and still ate some other carby foods because many days I had to eat what I could, or what felt right, and occasionally that involved carbs.

But I'm back to normal as far as my diet goes, so I will probably start reporting what I eat, and any recipes, again. I'll just start with March 1st. Which was a carby day :). I wasn't home much, so had to eat 2 meals in restaurants. Since I still can't eat a full plateful of food, and I did make mostly good choices, the damage probably wasn't too bad :). Then yesterday I had leftovers: roasted chicken thighs, steak, and creamed spinach. Today I had half a grilled cheese sandwich (using the great bread I recently posted about), a dish of SF butter pecan ice cream, some roasted chicken breast, bacon, and green beans cooked on the stovetop in butter and olive oil, seasoned with garlic and onion powders, and garlic salt. I craved milk today, though, and drank probably 3 cups of whole milk. Still, I was probably at about 50gN for the day and that's fine with me.

So that is March so far :).


  1. I'm glad you're feeling better post surgery! Here's to a great year.


  2. Doing great! Where do you get SF ice cream? Summer is coming and I would love to have some once in a while.

  3. I either get the "no sugar added" (not quite SF) ice cream from Walmart, or I make it :). There are plenty of recipes online but I pretty much just whip up some heavy cream and add sweetener and whatever else I want, then put it in the freezer for a while; it makes an adequate ice-cream-like dessert. I don't have an ice cream freezer - the small appliance - but am thinking of getting one this spring.

  4. We have a Cuisinart ice cream maker and love it! Haven't used it in a while but plan to experiment with some low-protein varieties soon!
