I have been buying ready pac salads from Costco.  They come in a 2 pack with everything you need, dressing, chicken, cheese, even a fork!  Havent been cooking much lately myself WAY too hot! 

I do have a question for you though, I noticed on your signature that you had your RNY revised.  Just curious what happened, I have been an extremely slow loser and its driving me crazy and dr office is no help.  PM if you dont want to post.  TY!

In addition to salads which don't offer any protein, I'll get deli turkey, ham, chicken with as low fat as possible.  I'll also get a cantaloupe or strawberries and other fruit.  I tend to take a few pieces of deli meat and roll them up and serve them with the fruit and add some cottage cheese.  I'll also do iced protein shakes to make sure I get all my protein in when I don't really feel like eating a full meal.

Hi Gina!
I have been buying frozen cooked shrimp (the big ones)  and run them under warm tap water to thaw, then mix them up with an avocado and a little sour cream or greek yogurt.  I add a spoon of salsa to spice it up, and it makes a great little salad.

I also wrap lunch meat over a hunk of cheese and gnaw away at it.

it's too darn hot to cook.

sorry for the long delay, I don't come here too often because there just isn't much traffic.

yes, I click every day!  I mix it with vanilla protein powder, because by itself click isn't  too high.  But boy, it makes a GREAT milkshake!

I read a blog called theworldaccordingtoeggface and she has amazing ideas for meals, snacks and wonderful tips. I am just getting the hang of this and with this heat I am just not wanting to cook.
