Kate Posted March 31, 2008 Report Share Posted March 31, 2008 Hey everyone! And Hi to Diane, Val, Antsooz and Lovetta! Yesterday was my first official meal! I invited some family and friends over. (I love to cook) I grilled salmon, steamed broccoli (with home made lite hollandaise sauce). I made yellow rice and black beans, bruchetta, and a few other munchies for my guests. I was able to eat about a 3 inch square of salmon, broccoli and a small piece of bruchetta. I was full. I know bandsters have moderate troubles with rice and pastas, so I only gave the rice a little taste. The trick was taking small, deliberate bites and chew, chew, chew. Eat slowly and take the time to enjoy your meal. AND don't drink! That was hard. I am so used to slugging down at least 1 big glass of water with a meal. We'll see how this week goes. Anyone with menu ideas for the post-op? Please post! Tell us what works for you! I am still mega excited, super happy and I have a whole new outlook on life! Thanks Dr. Ortiz!!! > Kate!
