Still no news whether my surgery will go ahead this week. I should find out Monday morning but have my fingers crossed that I won’t need a cardiology clearance. So I continue on with the Shake-y pre-op diet. I did make up a soup yesterday which was delish, although my list of pre-op stuff to eat said not to use broth probably because of the salt, but I did anyway. I am a broth sinner. I dumped all my low carb veges—onions, garlic, celery, broccoli, asparagus, cabbage, parsley, spinach—into a big pot with the chicken broth and boiled it up. Whizzed it with my hand blender and with a few shots of hot sauce, I demolished two bowls of this wondrous tasting soup. Who knew low-carb could taste so good!
