  2. I know this is an older post, but I was wondering the same thing.
  3. I would prefer to take myself to the hospital whether it be by myself or a cab, but what about when you're released from the hospital? Did they let you uber out? I'm asking this because when I had just my EDG, not full surgery, they didn't allow people to leave by cab. I was going to drive myself to the hospital and then take a cab to a local hotel for the night and then take a cab back to my car to drive home the next day. They absolutely did not allow this. They make patients show them that their driver is there waiting for them! So, my wonderful cousin had to get up extremely early and drive us 1.5 hours to the hospital and wait for me and then drive us 1.5 hours back home. I hate to be dependent on others.
  4. I tried searching for this before posting, but all mentions of Body Fortress seemed to be about the powdered protein. Anyway, I found a good deal on the ready to drink cans at Big Lots. 4-15oz cans in a pack for $4! Each can has 200 cals, 1.5g total fat, 6g total carbs, 3g dietary fiber, 2g sugars, and 42g protein. I bought 2 packs of chocolate and 2 packs of vanilla. Just tried the chocolate as I'm typing, not great tasting but not horrible either. Anyone else try these?
  5. I want to try chia pudding. Most recipes I find use a non-dairy milk such as soy or almond. Can dairy milk be used or does it have to be non-dairy?
  6. Best of luck!
  7. I guess I want to try it because it would be a lot of protein and much lower in fat. I've seen recipes for it online, but they never discuss the texture and hardly discuss the taste.
  8. Has anyone tried chicken salad made with cottage cheese and little or no mayo? Does it taste good? How's the texture? I'm a very texture sensitive eater. BTW, I do like plain cottage cheese. I'm still pre-op, but would like to try this.
