I Tried Bread!

Yesterday, my diet was advanced for the final time. I am now allowed to try many new foods and the first one I decided to try was bread.

I had read wls program notebook that toasting the bread makes it a little easier on our pouches, so I heeded that. I cut in half a slice of multi-grain bread and toasted it. Then I put approx 1/4 of a cup of low fat chicken salad on top of it. I nibbled at this very slowly, waiting for my pouch to react. Nothing. Nothing is good. After about 20 minutes, I sensed that there was no way I would be able to eat all of this, so I started to eat just the chicken salad, since protein is more important. Ultimately, I got about 1/4 of a slice of toast into me with no ill affects. I am very pleased.

If anyone wants to know how I made my low fat chicken salad, in a food processor combine:

  • 2 oz cooked chicken
  • 1 tsp. mustard
  • 1 tsp. low fat mayo
  • 4-5 pickle slices (I used zesty dill)
I am sure that this recipe will change now that I have more food options to use. I can't wait to get some celery to put in it.

I love hearing of every success you have, no matter how big or small. It's like watching a butterfly leave the cocoon.
