There used to be zero dishes I could order straight off the menu (keep in mind I’m nine years post-op folks). Nowadays there are a few, or at least enough that I now have an Olive Garden Eating Guide available. But …

Three LIES we tell ourselves about healthy eating

At the risk of sounding like a hater…when we start to eat healthfully we get some really screwed up notions about eating. And I get it. The things we have to tell ourselves to get by and yadda. Usually I don’t make much of some of the beliefs I hear expressed. But, frankly, some of them are biting us in …

5 Signs You Need to See a Bariatric Dietitian

I don’t want anyone telling me what to do. And telling me what to EAT? Get outta here! But if there’s one truth I’ve had to accept above all others in my 9+ …

My Favorite Summer Crockpot Recipes

So life recently popped another one of my little “delusion bubbles.” You see…up until last year I’d never lived in a house with central air conditioning (true fact), so I had this delusion that if you live in such a wonderful, mythical place, you can turn on your oven in the middle of the summer time and bake with reckless …

Bariatric Foodie Teams Up With Bariatric Pal!

So…I can be accused of many things in life, Foodies. One of them is not being totally aware of awesome things right in front of me. Bariatric Pal is one of those things. Have you heard of it? If I had to describe the site, I’d say it is part community, part informational resource, and part commerce. It’s sorta like what …
