Nik’s Divas Proudly Present: Spagilli!

While I was in Las Vegas my divas were playing with their food. Apparently the story goes like this. My dear friend Katey bravely agreed to stay with them while I was away and one evening they decided to make Zar’s famous chili (Zar = Zariyah = La Petite Diva), which is very similar to my Turkey/TVP Chili, but with …

BF Review: Oscar Meyer Sandwich Combos

You know how some people sleep on flights? Others play on their laptops or read a book. I do magazines. Food magazines. Lots and lots of food magazines. That’s most often where I get inspiration for the things on this blog. I look at that food and I wonder what I could do to make it healthier/lower cal/more WLS-friendly. Anyhoo, …

BF Kid Zone: Strawberry “Tall” Cake Stack-ups

 As Bariatric Foodie forges into the future (wow, that was a lot of “f’s”), you’re going to hear me talk more about eating healthy as a whole family. Why? Well, several reasons. First, because I don’t think that we go into WLS with the intentions of only changing ourselves. While we know and understand that we can’t make others …

BF Kid Zone: Easy Cheesy Noodles!

~~By Nikki Served on our quasi-Asian inspired plates with chopsticks. The girls usually abandon the sticks after about 3 minutes though! Parents: raise your hand if you’ve ever found yourself in this situation. You had the day from hell at work, you pick up the kids and they are cranky and hungry. They drive you NUTS on the way home …

BF Kid Zone (part deux): Cheesy Mashed Cauliflower Cups

~by Nikki  I feel like I’ve deceived you peeps. The way I talk about my divas, you’d think they were these little culinary adventurers, ready to take on every new veggie and protein source with an open mind and an empty stomach. No. Sometimes when I propose (or make) new dishes they, like you, look at me like I …

Chick-Fil-A Swap: Kid AND WLS-friendly Chicken Nuggets

~by Nikki When having weight loss surgery, many of us are concerned about how our kids will react to our new lifestyles. We tend to indulge children with cookies, cake, candy and snacks – things we won’t be able to eat anymore. Will we be able to handle it? Will our kids resent us if we try to change their …

Well, if you’ve read this blog for a while, and have seen my forays with Thai Chicken and Banana Bon-Bons, you know that I have a certain affection for food on a stick.
