Yes. My main concern right now is having someone to cook for us for the next week or so, and make sure that my husband takes his medications properly. From what I hear, the surgery is pretty much of a breeze, just the diet afterwards is strange...no grains, no food more than 12 hours old, and no fat at all.
Im actually looking forward to it, and the recoup period in order to kick my addiction to coffee, and start eating wholly vegan. I also have plenty to read, and have the goal of reading most of the Bible...at least the New testament and the historical books and the Psalms.
My husband is concerned that we wont have any support emotionally and physically, but so many of our friends have offered support that for me thats not an issue.
Oh well. Today Im eating mostly fruits and veggies, and tomorrow will do the same. Today was my first day with out coffee.

Good luck with your surgery! Any major procedure makes you uneasy, but you'll feel so much better once you recover that I'm sure you'll be glad you did it. I wish you a fast and painless recovery!

best of luck to you. i had a hysterectomy in january. i expected so much pain and discomfort. but i had surgery in the morning, i had a bit of trouble with the anestesia.... and once that was out of my system byt 6pm that night, i was never better. i had so little pain, that i questioned my doctor. i had only a few doses of pain medications that night and never again. didn't have an iota of pain once i was home. so good luck to you and i wish you the best!!! let us know how you did...

Wow. Sounds like a delicious substitute! No, here in Ecuador, what substitutes for meat is an artificially BBQ flavored soya. It is supposed to taste like ham, chicken or beef. This morning I stopped and had a soy pattie on a bun. Remembered how awful it is, once again.

There are 3 vegetarian restaurants in Ambato where I live; one chinese oriented, one naturopathic oriented and one Indian oriented. the chinese one is the best tasting, the naturist one is probably the most healthy, but the indian one has the best of both worlds.

Today I had a high fiber cereal for breakfast with lo fat milk; The hamburger (soya) for a snack (Walked 4 miles and got hungry during the walk.)
My husband boght and cooked fish for lunch and had that with veggies and beans. And for dinner I just had a salad mixture with potatoes, apples, small amount of tuna (perhaps an ounce, if that much)

I went to the dr today, and will have my gall bladder removed next week, over 60 stones and 3 bigger ones. Ive been trying to avoid this for almost 2 years, but have decided to finally have it done before we cancel my health insurance. Therefore I might be a little incomunicado for the next week or so after it.

hi again everyone!! seems like everyone is doing great. most times that i want chicken, i buy Quorn.. have you heard or tried it??? is amazing. my husband will even eat it.. if you don't know, it is a product to resemble a chicken breast,, but is made from eggwhites and mushrooms.... and so tastey!!!! if you have't tried it, see if you can find it.. the Quorn is the brand name... they have a variety of 'chicken' products. i stick with the naked breast. and use it in place of any chicken. i simmer it in a bit of veggie broth and then use it as i please. i have even breaded it like chicken parmesan... and it makes heavenly chicken salad....

Wow! You really follow the Ornish plan well. Congratulations.
I ate this morning bread with apple butter, and walked around 3 miles, got hungry, and had cereal high fiber, no fat, with almost total skim milk. Lunch was out and dinner was out. I refuse to say what it was for not wanting to discourage. Tomorrow were home, and Ill eat well. So for now Thanks for the suggestions.
Oh and I did have a salad of spinach, pear, and mushroom with sesame seeds sprinkled on it,
I think it should be interesting to give (like you and Fran have) the recipees. It will give us a variety of ideas.

Sorry for such a delayed response...I've had a very busy couple of days at work. As for today's menu:

Breakfast: Oatmeal with fruit and nonfat Greek yogurt, coffee which I refuse to give up...life is hard enough! :)

Lunch: Bean and cheese burrito (whole wheat tortilla, fat free refried beans, fat free cheddar, fat free sour cream, pineapple salsa) and a salad of shredded cabbage, chopped red bell peppers, chopped celery, mandarin oranges and fat free dressing, and a cup of cherries


Dinner will be: Whole wheat spaghetti with marinara sauce, mushrooms, chopped peppers and onions, tossed salad with nonfat dressing and fruit.

Snacks consisted of a banana and nonfat yogurt and apricots with nonfat cottage cheese. I usually have a snack mid-morning and another mid-afternoon.

The turkey divan sounds fantastic. I have an idea that we can make turkey cakes with less turkey.(This idea is not for you, since you need more animal protein, but for the rest of us, who need less animal products in our diet.) Let me see if my naturist vegetarian will give me some advice on that.
I myself enjoy some animal products, and am hoping some day to have my cholesterol under control, so that I dont feel that I should only eat vegan.

Hope youre feeling better today.

great topic!!!!
i have been under the weather this week. so got those sickie kind of cravings that i have been trying to curb.
didn't have breakfast... was a bit sick to my stomach this morning. but i wanted soup. so i stopped and did a small bowl of wonton soup... it was so good and settled my stomach down.
i made a pitcher of iced tea with green tea and some raspberry tea bags. so yummy.
for dinner i made a turkey divan... i strayed a bit from Ornish,, but on the advice of my lap band doctor, I ate a half of a turkey patty. and for those that are unfamiliar with turkey divan-
you lay a bag of frozen broccoli in the bottom of a baking dish.. i make 6 turkey patties from ground turkey and cooked them in veggie broth.. lay those on top of the broccoli. made about 2 cups of veggie gravy with a bit of fake chicken broth mix,, poured that over the patties and broccoli... then i made a pot of whole wheat stuffing and put that on the top.. covered with foil and baked in the oven until heated through. is a nice one pan meal...
i have to eat a snack in the evening,,,, may have some baked chips, or fat free cookies...
i am supposed to eat 3 small meals and 3 snacks.. because of my lap band i only eat about 3/4 cup of food at any one time... that is why my doctor insists i add a little turkey or chicken to bump up my protein levels... and a side note. the turkey divan is even better if you use boneless turkey or chicken. i usually use thighs, but you can use breasts instead...

Hi fellow teammates-
Since Im so new at this, I thought it might be interesting to give a daily (if possible) summary of daily diet. It would help if we gave recipees or content of the meal also- at least for me. So here goes:
Morning: ate out since we were downtown--
grilled chicken breast sandwich with peppers and onions emoticon and hot chocolate
Lunch: salad with peppers, broccoli, summer squash, corn, apples, a kind of small bean which is popular here,
Dinner: probably a mixture of red beans, garbanzo beans and a bean similar to lima beans, on a whole wheat pita with salsa, and a repeat of the salad.

Unfortunately Im still addicted to coffee, and diet drinks. Any real good ideas to quit drinking coffee permanently? I quit and then go back to it, and I really get withdrawal symptoms.
