Easy and Healthy Breakfast Tacos

Easy & Healthy Breakfast Tacos - mommylikewhoa.com

You know the worst part about not having a gallbladder? My tummy can’t handle fatty foods anymore. Like within an hour I am in severe pain and it’s… well it’s not fun and it’s not pretty. The problem I have with that is most foods contain even trace amounts of fat, and my family tends to enjoy those meals the best. I have had to drastically change my eating habits, while still focusing on my families lifestyle. Because they don’t have my issues I have to find options that work for us as a family and fit into our lifestyle as it is. You know my family is picky, which means I have to be creative!Continue Reading

This is part of a 5 part series chronicling my Gallbladder removal. Cholecystectomy Diagnosis is the first part in the series.

Right before the holidays I started having a lot of pain in my side. At the time I had no idea that me hitting a plateau in my weight loss, having side pains, upset stomach or just general tiredness had anything to do with each other. I chalked all of it up to the stress of the upcoming holidays and left it at that.

The first time I had a gallbladder attack (thought I didn’t know what it was then) was sometime in late October or early November. It was a weekend. We had dinner, cleaned up the kitchen, watched some TV and went to bed like normal. I might have had some wine that night, but I don’t remember.Continue Reading

Cherry Coke Float Jell-o Shots - mommylikewhoa.com

Oh, my! For the past few days I swear, I have been LIVING off gelatin. It’s very surgery friendly, goes down smooth and tastes good. They pumped me full of it at the hospital! I swear I ate like 12 cups of it in a 24 hour period. OK, maybe not 12, but it was a lot. The nurses kept bringing it to me cuz they stock it like medical supplies at the nurses station on the recovery floor – for pudding I had to call down to the kitchen and order it. Such a pain, so Jell-O was the main staple of my “liquid diet”. I had that lifted as soon as I heard it was pot roast for dinner! So when I got home, I was craving some gelatin! Like CRAZY! And since the College Basketball Final Four is happening soon, I thought why not create a delicious and fun gelatin shot for parties?! It’s a create “drink” that’s easily shared with friends while watching the basketball game at your place or theirs, so I created a Cherry Coke Float Jelly Shot, because who wouldn’t want one? These are so fun and really taste almost exactly like a Cherry Coke Float! Careful not to eat them all!Continue Reading

She shuts the door so I can’t watch her, but if she’s anything like I was, I know exactly what she’s doing. Rocking out super hard!
