How Nik Does Flatbread

So let me give you a little spoiler about this flatbread post. If you clicked through thinking I was going to give you a recipe to magically turn cauliflower (or some other veggie) into flatbread…this post is gonna disappoint you. Alas, there is actual starch here! Now if you are of the “I don’t eat starch, ever!” school of thought, …

Pioneer Woman Inspired Chicken Zoodle Bake

Can I just tell you guys how much of a fan-girl I am of the Pioneer Woman (Ree Drummond)? Ok so don’t laugh but…I would put on her show while on the elliptical at the Y so that I’d stay on for the whole time I was supposed to. That is…before the Y switched to the cheap affordable cable and …

Salted Caramel Protein Mini-Cheesecakes

Aaaaand here we are with another cheesecake recipe on Bariatric Foodie. Predictable, right? Ok, ok I’ll admit over the years I can be accused of being a bit cheesecake obsessed. But that’s mainly because I think they are the post-op dessert. I mean, think about it. The main ingredient is cream cheese. Now yes, that can be fatty, but you …

No-Flour, Low-Sugar Chewy Pecan Cookies

Oh la, la… Well first…and I know I sound like a broken record here. But these are cookies. In my world, cookies are always going to be a heavily moderated treat. That’s why I am ok with not trying to add protein powder to them. Your mileage may vary. Play with your food! And, of course, use your own best …

No-Flour, Low-Sugar Thumbprint Cookies

You all have Amy to thank for this cookie. Amy was a member of a Bariatric Foodie Holiday Cooking Club I did once. In the club, we’d been doing cooking demos where I showed 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 …

Cauliflower Crust Turkey Pot Pie

NOTE: This post was originally composed right after Thanksgiving, but this recipe is good anytime, especially during the cold, cold winter!

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 …
