My friend gave me some crab meat last night. So I had some left over rice from dinner. I cut up the crab meat added a few spoons of butter..Then added the rice and seasoned it. I mixed it all in the pot and it was nice. I ate three tables spoons for my snack and the rest 4 table spoons for my breakfast. I will see if my daughter would like that for lunch.

That sounds so yummy! I wish I could have had some! I do the same thing though. I eat when I can't sleep. Or drink something. Nothing else to do when everyone is asleep.

That's the worst. Because you have to be quiet to make sure you don't wake them up and there's nothing to do that early in the house because you don't want to make too much noise!

I've had crab meat once, but I don't think I much liked it. That does sound like good little snack though, and I think Rice is supposed to be very good to fill you up but very light on your stomach?

That does sound like a light meal more then a snack, lol.. I can't eat crab as I am allergic to any types of seafood. If KK likes that I am sure she will enjoy it for lunch. Sounds like you are doing a good job at eating light.

That is great and what I am most glad about is that though you are watching what you eat, loosing weight but still able to eat.

I guess our family friend got my daughter and all of us some lobsters a week or so ago. I never got any of it. He was over lastnight and we were talking and he mentioned it. I was bummed cause I like crab, lobster any kind of fish. I don't think I have ever had it for breakfast though.

Stuffed Crab - Party favorite
Crab meat with butter! That surely tastes good. I also do love crabs but I eat only in moderation because of I certainly do watch over my cholesterol intake. I love spiced crabs cooked either in butter or in coconut milk. I also love crab relleno or stuffed crab which I always prepare when we have parties at home.

I'm not a big fan of sea food but I do like shrimp and I also like clams. It sounds really good what you are eating. How long has it been since your gastric bypass? I used to eat 4 ounces but now I am still hungry if I just eat that much. I can usually eat 8 ounces and feel full. Wish I could eat less like before.
