Weight loss surgery means a change in your lifestyle, including your diet. Once your doctor has cleared you to start eating solid foods, you’ll have some changes to make in the kinds of foods you eat to help keep you on track on your weight loss journey.
The best foods to eat following weight loss surgery are high in protein and low in fat and sugar. The Nicholson Clinic is devoted to helping our patients develop a healthy lifestyle post surgery.
Shrimp Deviled Eggs
6 large eggs
3 tablespoons Hellmann’s mayonnaise
3 tablespoons Fage Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
Old Bay seasoning
¼ pound cooked shrimp very finely chopped
3 scallions, finely minced, including tender green tops
1 teaspoon chopped fresh dill – if you are not using fresh, do not use dried
Place eggs in a covered pan just large enough for a single layer. Add room temperature water to cover the eggs by about one inch. Place pot on high heat and when the water just begins to boil, cook for 1 minute.
Turn off the heat, cover the pot, remove from burner and set timer for 15 minutes.
Drain the eggs, fill the pot with cold water to cool the eggs before peeling.
Split eggs lengthwise and remove yolks to a medium bowl. Mash yolks with fork until fine textured and fluffy.
Blend with mayonnaise, yogurt, mustard, ¼ teaspoon Old Bay, shrimp, scallions and dill.
Scoop filling into white halves.
Lightly sprinkle with additional Old Bay and garnish with fresh dill. Cover and chill until serving.
