Samantha’s Weight-Loss Surgery Friendly Chicken Divan

Not long ago, I held an informal webinar for a few merciful adventurous Foodies to help me test out new webinar software (more on that in a moment). I called it “Pimp My Recipe” and invited folks to bring recipes they wanted to make WLS-friendly. Now I consider myself a pretty experienced Foodie but there are a few dishes I’ve …

What do I mean by WLS-friendly Holiday Recipes?

This is my Sweet (and Salty!) Potato Casserole. It was a big hit at both the Baltimore and Pittsburgh Bariatric Foodie Holiday Food Tastings. (If you were at either and agree – holler!) But this casserole is keeping a secret. And no, that secret is not that it has added protein (although it does). Those who are in possession of …

Weight-loss Surgery Friendly Indian-Style Creamed Spinach

For those of you who are excited about this recipe, you have my girl Hillery to thank (yes, Hillery, your Foodie Fitness Correspondent). One day she graciously agreed to help me mow through style La Petite Diva’s hair and she was cooking this. And me being the person I am, I have stalked her for the recipe ever since. Here …

Sausage Quinoa & Roasted Veggie Soup

This soup is not for the faint at heart. No…this soup is chocked full of nutrients and protein. This soup is soup for people who love their bodies and respect their souls. Yes, it’s that good. I don’t usually brag on my food (lies!) but I made this soup wanting to have some relief against the cold front that hit …

Nik’s Pumpkin Chili

I would just like to note that this recipe was developed before the food industry decided to “pumpkin all the things” (as Shannon, your friendly neighborhood BF Facebook manager likes to say). I mean honestly! I went to the grocery store the other day and they had an entire wall of pumpkin products. Pumpkin cookies, pumpkin bread, pumpkin beverages, pumpkin …

Reader Submission: Chrissi’s Spicy Bean Dip

All the pretty colors… (Before we get to this recipe…have you taken a look at the finalist recipes for the Fit Frappe recipe contest? Yes, ok. Well…have you voted yet so that YOU have a chance to win some Fit Frappe? Ah…you didn’t, did you? Go do it now! We’ll wait.)  Alrighty then! So anyone that knows me knows that …

What the HELL is Sofrito?

Hey Foodies!  This month instead of doing the Foodie Fitness Corner, I’m handling the recipe of the month.  Long story short: I recently had surgery on my leg and I’m limited in activity. So rather than bore you all with my attempts at exercising within my doctor’s limits, I thought I’d put on my chef hat and bad Julia Child’s …

Windi’s Jambalaya

But first a bit of business. Thanks to everyone who entered the BF Scavenger Hunt! Yes, I know  it was a pain for me to make you all look up stuff (altho most of it was Google-able) but I HOPE you found some good resources in your search. Anyhoo…the winners are: Heather H. Samantha M. Gwen K. Congrats, girls! They’ve …

Nik’s Protein-y Zucchini Fritters

This started out with me trying to dispel a myth. You see, someone at work told me they’d eaten a zucchini fritter that tasted just like a crab cake. Being a lifelong Marylander (home of the crab cake) I thought surely this cannot be. So I took to the only place I thought might hold the answer: The Google. Through The …

Spicy Quinoa & Tomatoes

So the other day I posted about this great vegetarian (possibly vegan, you all tell me) meal I made. We really have Hillery, our Foodie Fitness Correspondent from the email newsletter, to thank for this one folks. She made a chicken dish that inspired me! It was wonderfully yummy: herby, savory, a touch spicy! But for whatever reason I just …
