So as of lastnight I just realised I lost a friend who kept me company when my hubby was on N, comforted me when I was bored and gave me pleasure when I was down.

What did you guys do, how did you get over losing food in your life??

just wondering if anyone put spinach in their protein shakes...1 week pre-op

Just wondering if we can use up our leftover Opto after surgery? They do have 225 calories which I think is a lot- just wondering if anyone knew.
