Okay, so today is the first day post op that I have eaten a frozen entree. I needed something for lunch and as much as I love refried beans just did not feel like having them today.
I had one frozen entree in the refrigerator that has been there since pre-op. So, it was like two weeks from it's use by date. Good thing I looked, huh?
It is an Eating Right, Chicken with Basil Cream Sauce (white meat chicken and spaghetti with the basil cream sauce. An 8.5 oz serving with 280 calories, 7 g fat, and 19 g protein. Not the best all around for me, but I could do worse. I should have had more protein with the amount of calories and of course there was 550 sodium which is why I usually avoid these things anymore.
I was not sure if I could eat the whole thing so I brought a microwavable dish just in case, but it has taken me 30 minutes eatting slow the way I am supposed to and I did eat the whole thing. I am full so my berries will have to wait for a couple of hours. But I feel a little more full than I like so I probably won't do this again. I usually eat about 4-6 oz of food in about 15 minutes. I am guessing that eatting slower allowed me to eat more food. Which is probably what I am supposed to do, but I have trouble with the slow part.
So, I do believe frozen entrees are out for me. Just does not seem worth the calories, etc.
The learning never stops with this new way of living, eating, etc.
