5 Shrimp Recipes to Satisfy Your “Inner Bubba”

So I hear that May 10 is “National Shrimp Day” here in the United States. International Foodies: Do your countries have this same propensity to allow every day to be multiple holidays dedicated to all things – exciting to mundane? If so, then this day should make perfect sense to you. Anyhoo. I love shrimp. No, like, seriously. I LOVE SHRIMP. …

If you clicked through thinking I was going to give you a recipe to magically turn cauliflower (or some other veggie) into flatbread…this post is gonna disappoint you.

Pioneer Woman Inspired Chicken Zoodle Bake

Salted Caramel Protein Mini-Cheesecakes

Aaaaand here we are with another cheesecake recipe on Bariatric Foodie. Predictable, right? Ok, ok I’ll admit over the years I can be accused of being a bit cheesecake obsessed.

Bariatric Foodie’s No-Flour, Low-Sugar Cookie Collection

Ah, cookies. They are a hallmark of the holidays. And as a post-op we spend a lot of time trying to avoid them, am I right? I actually respect that a lot. Cookies are tricky territory. They are small. Unassuming. There doesn’t seem to be much harm in having just one little cookie, right? That is…until one cookie becomes four cookies …

No-Flour, Low-Sugar Peanut Butter Cookies

Oh peanut butter. How do I love thee…let me count the ways! Now I will preface this recipe by saying that it is possible to lower the fat significantly in this recipe by replacing some (not all) of the peanut butter for peanut flour. I did not choose to do that, but it is definitely a choice you could make. For …

No-Flour, Low-Sugar Chewy Pecan Cookies

Oh la, la… Well first…and I know I sound like a broken record here. But these are cookies. In my world, cookies are always going to be a heavily moderated treat. That’s why I am ok with not trying to add protein powder to them. Your mileage may vary. Play with your food! And, of course, use your own best …
