Every since I had my procedure I have been eating a lot of fish. I average fish at least once a day. Prior to my surgery I maybe had fish once every other week.
This means I eat a lot less red meat. I still have an occasional steak, hamburger or meatloaf however it is down to maybe three times a week.
I don’t know why I want fish instead of beef. Maybe because it flakes and doesn’t take as much chewing? Maybe because I can use a tartar sauce instead of sugar based ketchup? Maybe because the fish can be microwaved and tastes great? I think it is a combination of all of those.
Two 4 ounce fish fillets fill me up and keep me satisfied for hours. My favorite fish is flounder.
