Slimfast or no Slimfast, that is the question.

I have so much left over Slimfast and Weight Watchers smoothie mix. I know that when I was on my pre-op diet my surgeon specifically said not to use those. So now I am wondering, do I throw them away..? Any opinions appreciated!

Day 2 Week 1 of C25K is done. I looked forward to it today, and this time I went to the local middle school and used the outdoor track. Much easier than going uphill (uh). It was a chill 22 degrees outside but by the second interval I did not feel it! Has anyone ever done week 1 twice? I just wonder if after my next session that I will be ready to do longer runs. I guess I could just give it a try and see.

I had a yummy dinner last night, thanks to TJ's Test kitchen..btw I would enter a link but I am not sure how to do that. wah.
Here is the recipe, it is so good! Thanks for sharing TJ..

Saucy Baked Eggs
For ONE serving:
1 cup Marinara sauce (jar or home made!)
2 eggs
Parmesan cheese-to sprinkle on after it bakes

Place sauce in corning ware- add two eggs, cover and bake for 20 minutes at 425 degrees or until eggs are cooked to your liking. I only ate half, it was more than enough.


  1. Save them for after fills when you need liquids for a day or two.

  2. I agree with band groupie about after fills. Also if you start working out and lifting weights you will need a post workout shake to use as a recovery drink. They are both really good for that.

  3. Great recipe - thanks for sharing!

  4. I will just save it then, I have a huge tub of it..

  5. If you want to get rid of them, donate them to your local foodbank... they are ALWAYS looking for high protein stuff like that. Otherwise, I agree that you should keep them (although I'll admit that I actually threw out about 20 packets of that today because it had passed the date)....

  6. I kept mine - because I knew there would be a time when my band was tight in the morning and all you can get down is a liquid protein. Worked a treat. Also sometimes you might want one after a fill.. they're great for that.

  7. I too bought a ton of them. Never thought of using them after workouts though. Now I'll think about that. I just got SO TIRED of them during my liquid phase. My doc doesn't make us go back on full liquids though. Just mushies for a couple days. So I do cream soups and mashed taters.
