A bariatric bento box offers a great solution for every foodie who has had bariatric surgery. Unlike a traditional lunch box, the small compartments within a bento box allow for bariatric-friendly portions of healthy food. And as long as you select from 4 food groups for its contents, the bento box will be nutritionally sound […]
Lately, I am indulging in a deep rich coffeehouse-style protein latte with long-lasting energy and no stomach upset! I LOVE frozen coffee drinks. But I gave up on them owing to the irritation that coffee causes my gut. Until now… I’m so excited to share my NEW recipe for Frozen Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel […]
Red Velvet Protein Pancakes with Chocolate Chips is a superstar breakfast recipe for Valentine’s Day! It’s also quick and easy to make for those of us who don’t like to cook from scratch. The secret to it’s success is two bariatric-friendly ingredients: Bob’s Red Mill Paleo Pancake and Waffle Mix and Red Velvet Protein from […]
Most of us only have a limited time to cook from scratch so it makes good sense to make it count. This often means that I double up on a recipe, like these delightful Bariatric Egg Bites, on the basis that I can eat or serve one batch now and put the other in the […]
Few appetizers are more universally loved than antipasti. With endless combinations of healthy foods to suit every appetite, food preference, and budget, antipasto — a traditional Italian dish meaning “before the meal” — has become a favorite in households of every ethnicity. With that in mind, I’ve developed a Rustic Hearty Antipasti recipe with three […]
The Autumn/Fall calls for warmer foods – something a bit more satisfying and comforting than perhaps a salad. Cue – bariatric-friendly Chili. I am hard pushed to think of a recipe dish that suits meat-eating, vegetarian and vegan bariatric patients alike. Plus it’s seasonal, economical, packed with great nutrition, bariatric-friendly and easy to make. Using […]
I am infatuated with Starbucks coffee beverages despite the high price tag and it not being organic. My favorite is a custom-blend sugar-free Chocolate Hazelnut Frappe with a shot of espresso. LOL, now you know a selection on the Starbucks Secret Menu. But I’ll let you in on an even bigger secret. I have a Starbucks […]
The first time I attempted to make cauliflower pizza it was an utter failure. It tasted mushy and nothing like pizza. Since I am someone who likes to enjoy the food I am eating I said “sayonara” to cauliflower pizza. It just wasn’t for me. But then more and more people kept telling me how […]
Mom used to make potato pancakes when I was little. Wow, do I ever miss her sweet singing as she would hand grate the potatoes then fry them up in big batches. Mom always expressed her love for her family, and there was lots of love expressed through her cooking. I remember sometimes all we […]

How can I feed my family and myself bariatric recipes that everyone will enjoy? I hear this all the time from clients who have undergone bariatric surgery. During those first few months after surgery it can be overwhelming to follow your bariatric surgeon’s dietary guidelines, plus put a delicious meal on the table for your […]
Grains, starchy vegetables, sugar, and artificial sweeteners are not part of my bariatric diet! But they sure are central to a traditional Thanksgiving menu. So for many years I missed out on pumpkin pie, rolls, and tea breads. But nowadays I serve a sumptuous grain-free Thanksgiving. That’s because I learned about nut flours! Wonderful baked goods can be […]
