You-Sized Four Cheese Mashed Cauliflower

This has been a looooooong time coming. I already have several Cauliflower “mac ‘n cheese” recipes here on the blog, and they all have one thing in common. The pictures SUCK! Since I demonstrated how to make this dish in a recent Bariatric Foodie cooking class, I used that opportunity to rectify the situation. Because you guys just do not …

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 …

PB&J Protein Shake (featuring BiPro USA Strawberry whey)

PB&J protein shake. Yeah! Forgive my exuberance but if you’ve followed Bariatric Foodie for any length of time you’ll know that I love all things peanut butter. I love the texture. I love the taste. I even love why it was invented (by George Washington Carver who was looking for a nutrient and calorie dense food so that people could get …

Strawberry Shortcake Protein Shake (featuring BiPro Strawberry)

So if you read my product review for BiPro Strawberry the one, resounding message was that I’m not that fond of strawberry protein shakes. I must say…this might be the exception. And no I’m not just saying that because I love me some BiPro (although I do). I did actually, genuinely enjoy this shake! It was so easy too! You guys! …

Mint Chocolate Protein Pots de Creme

So when I say “Pots de Creme” you may be thinking one of three things: “Nik, you’ve gone bougie!” “What the hell is a ‘Pots de Creme?'” “I am a chef/cook/French/food snob and I do not believe that this can be achieved.” Let’s talk this out. So #1 – yeah, I’ll admit, it’s sort of a bougie thing to say you …

Thanksgiving Meatballs w/ Mashed Cauliflower and Craisin Sauce

You see meatballs…I see a “Violet Beauregard” moment. (Thank you Lisa on Facebook for correcting my blatant error – I originally attributed this moment to Veruca Salt. Not sure how I got the name mixed up…) If you ever saw Willy Wonka you know Violet as a little girl who won a tour of the famed factory, only to meet her demise …

No-Sugar Added Chocolate Hazelnut Spread

Spoiler Alert: Nutella is never going to be health food. This is not health food. It will always be a treat. I felt like I should lead with that because there are always new folks coming to this blog and I want you to know that we do, in fact, know the difference between a healthy food and indulgences. We talk about that …

Apple-Cinnamon Protein Muffins

  You know what’s hard? Living in a house with non-ops who have no qualms about eating stuff that would kill me. Now granted, I love to bake so occasionally I’ll bake them a cake or make some biscuits for breakfast but it’s rare (a fact that is much complained about in my house…but when I say moderation, I mean …

Shrimp & “Grits” A La Nik

Now for those of you who are new, I’d like to let you in on an important piece of information (that you probably already know): when I put the name of food is “quotations,” it means it’s not really that food. So “rice” is not rice and, in this case, those “grits” are not grits. We all on the same …

#PWYF Moment: Tammy’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Roll Cake

(Before we get to the cake…have you entered this week’s “Bariatric Foodie Season of Giving” drawing? There’s Quest Bars up for grabs, people go enter!!!) Anyhoo…I love when you guys show me what you’re cooking. Doesn’t even have to be from this blog. I just love to see what you’re up to in the kitchen. Incidentally this submission was inspired …
