Do you have a default food? It seems to me that most weight loss surgery post-ops do. A default food is that food you’re almost always in the mood to eat, if all else fails. I have several. One of my default foods is eggs.
But eggs aren’t the most portable food in the world, especially for our rearranged digestive systems! If you cook them ahead and reheat them they can take on a rubbery texture. Or…your pouch/sleeve/____ (whatever you call that thing that receives food) can reject them for absolutely no good reason.
This is more a methodology than a recipe. You can do these “kits” any way you want using any ingredients you want. Microwave scrambles aren’t an original idea of mine. I first heard about them through Hungry Girl. BUT hers seem more suited to scrambling at home. I wanted to scramble at work. So…here’s how I do it.
Nik’s Portable Egg Scramble Kit
(Let’s call this one a “whichamacallit” scramble)
In a small plastic container I put 3 oz. of liquid egg substitute. (Use however much you think you can eat in an appropriately sized container).
In a larger, microwave-safe plastic container I put:
- Diced veggies (I used diced red and green bell peppers, onions and tomato)
- Diced meat (I had a package of Turkey Lil’ Smokies hanging out in the fridge so I sliced a few of those up)
But for those who, like me, have a “pouch of steel” this is a great way to have breakfast for lunch (or dinner) when away from home!
