BF Review: Breyer's Carb Smart Chocolate Ice Cream

 (Obligatory disclaimer: I am NOT “encouraging” anyone to eat ice cream. But recognizing that some of you do, I feel it’s good to know there are options that can work in a well balanced diet.) So the other day I had an intense craving for chocolate ice cream. This has been a tenuous thing. Most no-sugar added or sugar-free …

Nik’s Cheesesteak Scramble

 Cheese-steak…not cake. I get that a lot when I write that word! Anyhoo…I love eggs! From my head down to my legs. 🙂 Ok, ok…that was cheesy. If you can eat eggs, consider yourself blessed because many cannot post op. I personally don’t know what I’d do if I couldn’t. I CRAVE the things. But for me an egg …

Kahlua and Scream! Protein Shake

 It’s been a while since I posted a protein shake recipe. There is a good reason for that. It’s been a while since I’ve actually had a protein shake. Don’t get me wrong, I still love my shakes. But as I get further out, I’m capable of getting all my protein from solid food and these days I’ve been …

A cheesecake…for lovers

Boy, oh boy, a lot of my microwave made it into this picture, didn’t it? …Or two (maybe three) people who really, really, REALLY like cheesecake. While in Michigan, I happened upon a 4 inch springform pan. My plan was to make a cheesecake in my Magic Bullet to submit for the Kitchen Magician contest. By the way, THANK YOU …

Chicken and Corn Chowder

 I know you all think I’m exaggerating but honesty – this dish disappeared so fast I didn’t have a chance to take a picture of it. I wanted to share it anyway because it is good. I’m sorry I don’t have a picture. This day I had to scrub down my whole kitchen before cooking (because it was driving …

BF Review: Hi-Lo Vanilla Almond Cereal

I’ve been meaning to do a review on this for a looong time. It seems almost too good to be true. A cereal that is higher in protein than in net carbs??? How could this be? It has to be nasty, right? I decided to find out for myself. My grocery store carries several different varieties of this cereal, of which I …

BF Kid Zone: Strawberry “Tall” Cake Stack-ups

 As Bariatric Foodie forges into the future (wow, that was a lot of “f’s”), you’re going to hear me talk more about eating healthy as a whole family. Why? Well, several reasons. First, because I don’t think that we go into WLS with the intentions of only changing ourselves. While we know and understand that we can’t make others …

Bacon Cheeseburger Skillet

 I tell you, I’ve been looking for ways to reinvent the cheeseburger since I had surgery. Why? Cheeseburgers shut me down QUICK. A few bites and I feel icky. I don’t know what it is. And it isn’t limited to burgers. Meatballs and meatloaves get the same treatment, no matter what I make them out of. Well lately I’ve …

WLS-friendly Quesadillas

 How do you know the food blogging lifestyle has REALLY penetrated your household? When you make a yummy lunch to share with your little diva and she insists you photograph it before you can eat any of it. Yep, this is my life folks. So, down to business. Quesadillas. Usually not such a great idea. I hated when restaurants …
