No-Flour, Low-Sugar Thumbprint Cookies

You all have Amy to thank for this cookie. Amy is a member of the Bariatric Foodie Holiday Cooking Club. In the club, we’ve been doing cooking demos where I have been showing folks how to switch up holiday favorites. By far, the one club members seemed most excited about was to explore cookies! To make it even more meaningful I …

Protein Infused Cranberry Sauce (featuring BiPro USA Protein Water)

Omigosh guys??? Did you know that cranberries are actually not a carb-bomb??? You did? Well why the heck didn’t you tell me??? Granted there is a cranberry sauce recipe here on Bariatric Foodie, penned by my former co-author, the incomparable Jen and featured in The Bariatric Foodie Holiday Survival Guide. But I’d always avoided the stuff because…I don’t know. I assumed it …

Roasted Veggies and Couscous

Ok don’t be afraid. Seriously. Don’t! It’s couscous. Breathe. Are you breathing? Even if you don’t eat couscous there are some legit reasons you should consider this dish: Not all carbs are evil. Not even all starches are evil. Especially once you are further out and are cleared to incorporate them into your daily eating. Your family will eat this. …

Spicy Summer Beans & Sausage

Y’all need to know you almost didn’t get a picture of these spicy beans and sausage. Why? Because somewhere along the line my well-crafted, time-tested method for making sure nobody eats my bloggable food broke down this week! Let me tell you how that usually goes. Usually my family knows when I am making food to blog because it takes forever …

Easy Refrigerator Pickles

Refrigerator pickles. Because…summer! Because weird summer with varying temperatures, weird rainfall patterns, all of which have resulted (in my homestate of Maryland) in a bumper crop of pickling cucumbers. Because also…cold, crunchy and satisfying. Oh…and super low-cal! And lastly because…Nik has a deep-seeded fear of canning things (true fact: don’t ask me why, it’s a totally unfounded fear I’ll get …

PB&J Protein Shake (featuring BiPro USA Strawberry whey)

PB&J protein shake. Yeah! Forgive my exuberance but if you’ve followed Bariatric Foodie for any length of time you’ll know that I love all things peanut butter. I love the texture. I love the taste. I even love why it was invented (by George Washington Carver who was looking for a nutrient and calorie dense food so that people could get …

Strawberry Shortcake Protein Shake (featuring BiPro Strawberry)

So if you read my product review for BiPro Strawberry the one, resounding message was that I’m not that fond of strawberry protein shakes. I must say…this might be the exception. And no I’m not just saying that because I love me some BiPro (although I do). I did actually, genuinely enjoy this shake! It was so easy too! You guys! …

Strawberry-Mint & Cheesecake Protein Pops (featuring BiPro USA)

It’s summer! Sorta. I mean…theoretically it’s summer. Even on the calendar it is summer. Someone forgot to send Baltimore the memo. Don’t get me wrong. We have intermittent summer going on here. But it’s very indecisive. It’s like the city wants it to be summer but it’s afraid to let go of spring? We get these random, gorgeously warm days …

Easy Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup

So…I had a problem when I was photographing this Chicken Tortilla Soup. No it was not the tortilla chips (although thanks for the vote of confidence). This. Soup. Is. So. Good. It’s like…”put-it-in-the-crockpot-and-go-back-every-five-minutes-to-test-and-see-if-it’s-still-good” good. It’s…”take a small slurp between every shot you take of the recipe” good. It’s “this-soup-may-never-make-it-to-the-dinner-table” good! Thankfully, this is a big batch recipe, so that didn’t happen. …

Nik’s Fall Eggplant Casserole

Aubergine. That’s what I think of when I think of eggplant. Because that’s what my mom used to call it. With an exaggerated, fake French accent. Aubergine. Turns out that’s French for eggplant. Who knew? (Shouting up to heaven: “Sorry, mom, for all the times I rolled my eyes!”) It’s a nifty little vegetable once you are able to eat it. …
