So......have a semi-major surgery coming up, have gotten into shape, developed regular exercise routines, but now it's all going to be interrupted. Docs say I'll be in hospital minimum of 3 days if I heal quickly (I plan to heal quickly) & at least another two weeks before I get my stamina back. I suppose since they want you on your feet pretty quickly that I'll at least be able to obtain the minimum of walking around for 10 minutes. Haven't broken my streak in close to two years, if not more, so......hopefully won't now. (Altho' believe it or not, I'm NOT obsessed; just don't want to fall off the wagon, so to speak.)
I'd love to hear from anybody else who's gone through this, how things went, etc.

Went to farmers market today & got lots of fresh produce, including those (flash frozen) blueberries. Made salad w/green & red leaf lettuces, red onion, radish, sauteed baby Bellas & garlic w/olive oil & balsamic vinegar, carrots, blueberries, plus slivered almonds & pumpkin seeds. Topped w/healthy, fresh dressing made by one of the producers at the market. YUMMERS!

Earlier, for a snack, I roasted beets & sauteed the greens w/onions in little olive oil & splashed with a dash of balsamic vinegar. DOUBLE YUMMERS!!!

Today's lunch was anything but a 'plain cheese sandwich.' Sautéed about a cup shredded cabbage in about 1 tsp of olive oil. Then added some sweet chili sauce, about 1 tbsp & 1/4 tsp of dijon. Placed 1 deli sliced piece of swiss cheese on whole wheat bread, top with the cabbage & second slice of bread & voilà! a delicious cheese sandwich! Add crudités & fruit & there's your lunch! Switch out mango with more berries & you've got a lunch less than 400 calories! (altho' less potassium)

Being (mostly) vegetarian, finished reading the above article by Sarah Haan & Becky Hand with Nicole Nichols, I added the nutrients to my Nutrition Tracker to keep tabs on them, but I don't see where I can add Omega-3 Fatty Acids, or ALA. Anybody else know where they might be hiding?
