Nik’s WLS-Friendly Shamrock Shake

So you may have heard of this holiday…St. Patrick’s Day? I keep hearing about a guy who drove snakes out of Ireland but I’m pretty sure the holiday is about wearing green, drinking ale and being promiscuous (if the Baltimore bar scene can be trusted to tell the tale). You guys have been thinking about St. Patty’s Day for a …

Happy National Hot Chocolate Day!

I seem to be the Queen of the overhead shot these days! If there is a list out there of these food commemoration days, can someone please point me to it??? Thankfully, if you use the handy search box to your right, you search any ingredient, dish, keyword your heart desires and if it’s on BF, the search box will …

Nik’s Flourless Coconut Macaroons

There’s a lot to be learned from non-op cooking, Foodies. In the midst of my non-op holiday baking I came across a completely flourless coconut macaroon recipe. It took me a week or two after what I call “cookie-palooza” (prep for my big Christmas party when I make hundreds and hundreds of cookies) to want to even think about a …

Nik’s Christmas Cookie Protein Shake

  I know, I know…there’s nothing like a cookie. It’s true! Especially a Christmas cookie. Oh, sweet confection! But we’re living differently these days and although we have options for cookies (check out, for example, my flourless coconut macaroons or my No-Flour Almond Butter Cookies), sometimes you just want something a little festive. Right? (Say right.) This is one of …

WLS-friendly Cookies: Nik-a-doodles…

I love baking cookies. Mostly because it is the ONLY realm of science I can truly wrap my head around. Having said that, these cookies were challenging! My mission: a higher protein, lower carb cookie recipe that didn’t have 8 million ingredients! My goal was 7-8. I’m going to go through this recipe but also through all the missteps I …

BF Top 5: Single-Serving WLS-friendly Thanksgiving Dessert Ideas

One of the biggest worries I’ve heard from post-ops about making WLS-friendly desserts for Thanksgiving is getting stuck with the leftovers if nobody else likes it. It’s a valid concern. Although I’d theorize if we stop TELLING people the dessert is healthy (instead, simply put it on the table and walk away!) we’d find this is not so much a …

Banana-Peanut Butter Protein “Minute Pudding”

So we survived Hurricane Sandy!!! Yay! Not that I had any doubts. But still, I’m grateful my house wasn’t damaged, my electricity stayed on. I’m at home today as the mayor has asked us not to drive until crews get the roads clear. So I thought this would be the PERFECT opportunity to share this neat recipe I’ve been making. …

Nik’s Candy Corn Protein Pudding

  I just want you all to know…I have been trying to crack the code on candy corn flavored stuff for YEARS. I’m not super passionate about it myself. I’m not one of those “CANDY CORN” people. (You know what I’m talking about. It’s that person whose eyes get all round like saucers when they see candy corn.) In my …

Halloween Protein Shakes: Peanut Butter Cup

  I miss candy. I really do. I won’t even lie about it. Thankfully (?) my surgeon gave me the kind of very special RNY pouch that does not like real sugar. And I also have the kind of pouch that hates sugar alcohols (of which sugar-free candies have a lot). So…I miss candy. Especially at Halloween. Back in the …
