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 …

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.

BF Brunch for Two: Nik’s Farmers Market Scramble

 I say brunch for two because this will feed a non-op and a post-op. So if your spouse (or bf/gf/bff or whatever other relational acronym you’d like to eat with) loves veggies and you can tolerate veggies and eggs, this is a winner for a lazy Sunday morning. You can, of course, sub in any veggies you like or find you …

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 …

Pumpkin Chai Protein Shake

So you might remember that I made some pumpkin protein shake starters the other day. I’m just now getting around to using them! It’s not that I didn’t want to use them. I’ve just been testing one of the shake flavors that will be included in the 2012 Bariatric Foodie Holiday Survival Kit (those of you who ordered last year …
