Nik’s Taco Soup

Looking for the Bariatric Foodie Grand Prize post? Click here! So I didn’t invent Taco Soup. I just want to put that out there. I try my very best only to claim what I truly believe to be my own inventions (like I think Taco Casserole is all me…I had never heard of it before I made it…but I invite …

Sausage Quinoa & Roasted Veggie Soup

This soup is not for the faint at heart. No…this soup is chocked full of nutrients and protein. This soup is soup for people who love their bodies and respect their souls. Yes, it’s that good.

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).
