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 …

This month we are going to celebrate all things pumpkin. I’ll be highlighting classic pumpkin recipes already on the blog, sharing new ones and lifting up YOUR favorite pumpkin …

Nik’s Protein Power Balls

(Insert snicker…go ahead…your inner 12 year-old is DYING to do it!) Yes, yes, on with it then… The name is good for SEO the best name I could come up with to describe these things. As always, there’s a story behind them. So…I wanted to make peanut butter balls. Because I’ve seen them a few times. Paula Deen and whatnot. …

What the HELL is Sofrito?

Hey Foodies!  This month instead of doing the Foodie Fitness Corner, I’m handling the recipe of the month.  Long story short: I recently had surgery on my leg and I’m limited in activity. So rather than bore you all with my attempts at exercising within my doctor’s limits, I thought I’d put on my chef hat and bad Julia Child’s …

WLS-friendly Lunchables (the sequel!)

You all might remember my first, more traditional, WLS-friendly Lunchable. I’ve been having lots of fun creating different iterations of this idea. Today’s offering: tuna salad with halved cherry tomatoes, onions, TONS of garlic salt, salt, pepper and a little canola mayo. Alongside it are my “cuke-ers” (cucumber crackers) and I have a nectarine for a sweet finish! What would …

Today’s dessert recipe is courtesy of Melissa. When …

Windi’s Jambalaya

But first a bit of business. Thanks to everyone who entered the BF Scavenger Hunt! Yes, I know  it was a pain for me to make you all look up stuff (altho most of it was Google-able) but I HOPE you found some good resources in your search. Anyhoo…the winners are: Heather H. Samantha M. Gwen K. Congrats, girls! They’ve …

Lunchables WLS-Style

Just a quick one today for you, Foodies! I used to love me a Lunchable. But as I always say, I’m living better these days! So I started putting these together instead. Isn’t it cute? Best thing about it is you can make it up the way YOU want it. All you need is: A few thick-cut slices of your …

Nik’s Protein-y Zucchini Fritters

This started out with me trying to dispel a myth. You see, someone at work told me they’d eaten a zucchini fritter that tasted just like a crab cake. Being a lifelong Marylander (home of the crab cake) I thought surely this cannot be. So I took to the only place I thought might hold the answer: The Google. Through The …

Spicy Quinoa & Tomatoes

So the other day I posted about this great vegetarian (possibly vegan, you all tell me) meal I made. We really have Hillery, our Foodie Fitness Correspondent from the email newsletter, to thank for this one folks. She made a chicken dish that inspired me! It was wonderfully yummy: herby, savory, a touch spicy! But for whatever reason I just …
