From the very beginning I’ve had certain foods that worked for me and others that didn’t. That is not unusual for almost every weight lost surgery patient I have met. I am happy to say these foods have changed over the years. I was just thinking the other day while I was cutting up an apple that for almost the first 4 years after weight lost surgery I could not even think of eating an apple. I loved apples and I was missing them tremendously. I had tried but the fiber was way too much for me and it was very painful to digest. Today I can eat an apple. Sometimes the entire apple skin and all. It is a food I savor and eat slowly. I am thankful for apples.
This is a simple recipe that has taken me through the years. Chicken has always been a protein which was difficult for me to eat. With this recipe I have found a way to enjoy chicken after weight loss surgery. It also is one of the simplest recipes and can drive tons of meal ideas like tacos, burritos, or just served over rice or noodles.
