Spaghetti Squash and Surgery

Hi All!

It's been about a month since my last post and a lot has happened. I had my surgery on September 11th to have my gallbladder removed. It was painful, but successful.. I have never been so scared in my life! I never want to have to go back to the hospital again! I have a new lease on healthy living. I have found a lot of different healthy things to eat.

I finally tried spaghetti squash, after first hearing about it on S2 on Biggest loser and seeing it in the cookbook and all over blogland, I tried it! I also really liked it, I made it with a garlic pasta sauce w/mushrooms and endamame. I think it would have been better with a thicker sauce with ground chicken, but i worked with what I had. The consistency was really close to pasta and wayyy healthier!

Endamame was also tried this week, I had it in my stir fry the other night and now tonight in pasta sauce, it is quite good, really high in fibre and protein, it's definatly good to have in the freezer to throw in. I bought the new frozen bags from Zehrs, they also had a really good asian veggie mix, which was awesome in the stir fry.

Popchips were also tried, I quite enjoy the plain pop chips. I didn't care for the barbeque and I haven't tried any of the other ones, I saw that they released more flavours recently! Do you guys have any favourites?

Anyways, I've lost 10lbs and am ready to rock the blog again!


  1. Glad the op was successful for you. I had mine removed in 2007 and havent looked back, best thing i ever did. And the pain afterwards didnt even compare to the pain during an attack. Glad you are doing well since too - keep up the fab work!

  2. Thank you! I'm hoping all the other pain goes away soon too!! I want to be back at 100%! Glad to here yours was a success!
