Hey Lightweights,

I just hit my 3 week point and am now on "regular" foods. I have the list of foods but I feel like nothing really even sounds good. I have tried cheese, which was good. I tried chicken, I got sick, like it was stuck and I was coughing up something clear for 30minutes to an hour. So no chicken for a while!

Today I picked up canned tuna & canned carrots. I just feel stuck for ideas. Help LW Friends?

Protein, protein, protein. Never mind the carrots. cheese, deli meat, tuna, eggs, moist chicken, shrimp, chili....

check out theworldaccordingtoeggface she has tons of recipes for all stages. she makes a Ricotta Bake that many rave about.

You might find that early out you are eating the same food(s) for each meal. also to ensure you hit your protein goal use protein shakes until you can manage on real food. chicken can be hard for many. Try and keep it real moist, use dark meat, gravy.

Don't get caught up on what is "breakfast food" or lunch, etc. Any type of food can be any meal for me now.

You make a great point about "breakfast foods" just getting the right nutrients needs to be my focus.

Thanks for taking the time to respond.
