Still nursing my princess back to health…
This week has been such a lame week in the Prevention Kitchen. I normally cook multiple delicious meals throughout the week but with my family’s visit last weekend and our Memorial Day weekend trip to Lincoln, Nebraska this weekend, we have opted out of grocery shopping. And thus, no new recipes have been tried and thus no fun blog posts have been made. Sorry 🙁
My blog traffic looks like this \ — plummeting!
Instead of being über creative (because…I’m not) I gave in to Mr. Prevention’s cravings…
Another note to self: No meal planning for the week leads to unhealthy, non-tasty dinners!
I tried Muscle Milk Light this week after hearing rave reviews from patients — patients like my Lap Banders who have higher protein requirements after surgery. I was really impressed with the product.
sunflower and/or safflower oil
medium chain trigylcerides (MCT)
I talked a bit about the role of MCT oil in my Coconut Oil: Health Food or Health Fad post. For my post-op patients, I give MCT a huge thumbs up. I also enjoyed seeing the mono and polyunsaturated fatty acid rich oils, sunflower and safflower, on the ingredient list.

Almost the long holiday weekend,
