Not my dinner

Hi all! Thanks for the well wishes :) My actual procedure is tomorrow, today I just had to live on a liquid diet and take a lot of pills- yuck! Cooking dinner tonight for the husband was a little painful as my tummy was rumbling! I made him a mish mosh of things- Annie's shell's and cheese, a sammy melt, artichoke hearts (which are Josh's favorite!). It doesn't look too pretty but he says its excellent.


My dinner tonight is broth and Gatorade...yah you're totally jealous I know ;) Did you all know gatorade has HFCS in it??? I didn' t know this until today! Since the doctor highly recommended I drink a lot of it, I have to overlook the HFCS today but don't think I will be drinking gatorade in the future. Hope everyone had a good one!

i noticed that the other day since my skating partner drinks it ALWAYS...or Powerade.

Yesterday he had the Gatorade AM...and we were wondering if it had caffeine (to be called AM). Nope, but turns out.... it does contain....WOOD ROSIN. So weird?!

Ugh! Sorry you didn't get to eat today...I hope it goes okay tomorrow.
By the way, you can buy something just like gatorade at Whole foods that doesn't have HFCS. It has electrolytes and comes in fruit flavors as well as a bottle that looks like a gatorade bottle. I can get you the name of it if you like.. :) Take care...:)
