Have protein shake, will travel…

So you’re busy. You work. You have to get yourself, your kids and, let’s face it, even your spouse out the door every damn morning and you just don’t have time to stop and make, much less enjoy, a home-blended protein shake! Calm down…we got you covered! I have a friend who I will not name publicly but if she …

Let’s get fruity!

by Nikki For years, I went to Baltimore’s Cross Street market just for fruit salad from a particular stall that has been there…oh…I dunno…since God said “let there be light” and there was light…and that guy with a bowl of fruit salad. Nowadays I am on a budget. I am also living a bit differently. So it was a happy occassion …

BF Survival Guide: Buffet Restaurants

by Nikki In general, we are not big fans of “the buffet.” Doesn’t matter which one you name, all buffets have one thing in common for post-WLS patients: they are NOT cost effective. And in most buffets the food is greasy or fried or–much, much worse–un-“stat-able” (translation: you can’t tell how many calories is in it. If you are pre-op …

Thai Chicken Skewers

I thought to myself “summer must be coming.” Meat on a stick, to me, evokes memories of state carnivals, funnel cakes and other types of summer time fun. …

Chocolate and Strawberries, Better than Sex?

~~Posted by Jen I love chocolate.  I mean deeply and truly. So, like we say at Pouch Parties, we don’t mandate anyone.

Lady of the Rings

Certain popular websites for girls who happen to be hungry claim this recipe, but it’s been around forever. I got it from somebody who got it from somebody who got it from somebody else which is probably the same place THAT chick got her recipe from. She was just smart enough to market it. That being said… I was in …

Rocky Road Protein Frozen Pie

Cuz it’s a ROCKY ROAD baby! So here’s the quick and dirty version of how this dessert came to be. It started in church (doesn’t everything?). I was greeter so essentially my job is to hand out the church programs to people coming in. There is also this magazine for kids and pre-teens called “Pockets from the Upper Room.” Well …
