Lemonade. It’s about more than Beyonce, folks. So I know we live in this super high-tech world where everything is designed to be faster, easier, more convenient. But every once in a while I like something that takes time, requires a little skill, and is a bit more involved. Good, homemade handmade lemonade is one of those things. When I …Read More »

Premier Protein: Simple Protein for a Complicated Life. (Product Review)
I sorta feel like I’m preaching to the choir about Premier Protein. So many of you already use it! In fact, the sheer number of you who use it prompted me to want to give it another try. I tried the shakes at the very beginning of my post-op life and I liked them well enough, but then I started …Read More »
Recipe Remake: Cinco de Mayo Protein Shake (featuring Premier Protein)
It’s May! We made it! I’m reasonably sure that for most of us, there is no snow in the immediate forecast. I think that’s cause to celebrate. Tomorrow, as you know, is Cinco de Mayo. (Tell the truth: do you know what’s celebrated on this day? I’ll ‘fess up and say I was not terribly aware, so I looked it …Read More »
Why Bariatric Foodie Hearts Torani
These are my “most frequently used” flavors. There are more in my kitchen though! There are three questions I get asked pretty often about sugar-free syrups: What do you use them for? What’s the difference between Torani, Davinci, and other syrups? If I’m gonna try Torani syrups, what flavor should I try first? Call me ambitious…but I’m going to try …Read More »

Pumpkin Toffee Protein Shake
According to my children, pumpkin time is over. This, of course, led to a discussion of the popular Christmas songs that actually include pumpkin references. (By the way, I could actually only think of two: “Hear Those Sleigh Bells Ringing” and “No Place Like Home for the Holidays” but if you can think of others, help me build my case!!!) …Read More »
From the Foodie Files: Sensible Protein Shake Swaps!
One of my biggest crimes as the write of this blog is assuming you all have read this blog as long as I’ve written it. Not true! So many of you don’t know that I used to be something of a calorie zealot. This blog fed into that big time as I sought ways to make yummy food for the …Read More »
Happy National Hot Chocolate Day!

Thankfully, if you use the handy search box to your right, you search any ingredient, dish, keyword your heart desires and if it’s on BF, the search box will …Read More »
Nik’s Christmas Cookie Protein Shake
I know, I know…there’s nothing like a cookie. It’s true! Especially a Christmas cookie. Oh, sweet confection! But we’re living differently these days and although we have options for cookies (check out, for example, my flourless coconut macaroons or my No-Flour Almond Butter Cookies), sometimes you just want something a little festive. Right? (Say right.) This is one of …Read More »
