Monday Four 31 days post op

Today makes a full month since surgery. Does not seem possible that times has passed so quickly. I have been doing well. Had a touch of flu last week but back on track today. I also hit a plateau but is to be expected. Just not sure how to break it at this point. Will talk with RD at clinic to see what to do.

I found this great new web site that sales high protein foods that can help you reach your protein daily need. Here is that web site

There is this company called Diabetic Connect. Do not ask for info unless you want continuous phone calls. Just my opinion.

Recipe of the Day:


1 large parsnip, peeled, thinly sliced
2 large carrots, peeled, thinly sliced
1 large red pepper, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
1 large sweet potato, peeled, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
¼ cup KRAFT Light House Italian Dressing
2-1/2 cups fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth, divided
1 can (15 oz.) cannellini beans, rinsed
½ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1 cup KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Italian* Three Cheese Blend
¼ cup chopped fresh basil

HEAT oven to 375ºF.
SPREAD vegetables onto bottom of 15x10x1-inch pan. Drizzle with dressing; toss to evenly coat vegetables. Bake 40 to 45 min. or until tender, stirring after 20 min.
ADD 1/2 cup broth and 1-1/2 cups vegetables to blender; blend until smooth. Pour into large saucepan. Add remaining broth, remaining vegetables, beans and black pepper. Bring to boil on high heat; simmer on medium-low heat 10 min., stirring occasionally.
SERVE topped with cheese and basil.
