BF Top 5: WLS Kitchen Essentials!

~~posted by Jen There are a few tools/gadgets/appliances that every post-op WLS kitchen needs. Granted, you may not need the absolutely obscene amount of kitchen gear that I have. “Hi, my name is Jen, and I am a kitchen gadget addict.” At this time I am not aware of a 12 step program for my gadget mania, but hope springs …

BF Top 5: You can take it with you!

~by Nikki Life moves pretty fast. And these days you have to keep up with it if you want to be successful. So now we’ve all become kings and queens of multi-tasking! Why just the other day I chewed gum while doing the dishes (chirp…chirp…). And just as we’ve taught our brains to be able to serve many functions on …

BF Top 5: Healthy Obsessions!

~~posted by Jen Admittedly, most of us have addictive personalities to some extent. Anyone who has been through weight loss surgery has heard all about transfer addictions and things to avoid in order to decrease your chances of developing other issues. Nik loves to exercise and probably spends 1/3 of her time at the Y working it out. Me, not …

BF Top 5: Protein bars!

There was a time, not so long ago, that I was very opposed to protein bars. Because I only tended to see protein bars at 7-Eleven and Wal-Mart, I had the idea that they were all carb heavy and no better for you than a candy bar. I’m here to admit—before you, the world-wide web and God—that I was wrong. …

BF Top 5: Beat the Heat with Icy Treats!

~~by Nikki I am a poet and I didn’t even know it! Ok, so I live in Baltimore. Jen is in New Jersey. Both our states are embroiled (never before has that been the MOST appropriate adjective) in a heat wave! It was 105 degrees in Baltimore yesterday, beating the record of 101 set in 1999. At 11 p.m. it …

BF Top 5: WLS Books

~~posted by Jen We here at Bariatric Foodie don’t purposely pimp any certain publications, and we tend to dance to the music in our twisty little heads rather than the beat of someone else’s drum.  However, once in awhile we come across a book, magazine, website, cookbook, (you get the idea) that we think would be helpful/interesting/beneficial/insert your own adjective …

BF Top 5: Favorite Magazines for Recipes!

The cheesecake is coming. I swear it is. I had a camera malfunction and I’ve been trying to find someone with a camera that takes memory sticks so that I can just get the pics uploaded. Then a lightbulb went off (ding!). I can do that at Wal-Mart and have them e-mail me the ruddy things! So that’s what I’m …

Cookin’ and bookin’…

Alas, I am but a poor blogger. That is to say that I don’t get any compensation for recommending things to you. Some of you do find it in your hearts to send me stuff and I try it and pay it forward by reviewing it here. All this is a prelude to something that is very near and dear …

Newbies!

Y’all damn near broke my camera! Seriously! I tried three times to do the newbie video and my camera when apeshit. So I have to take a short hiatus from the cooking show. I plan to put up a short PSA-style vid this week but the longer ones…well they probably should be shorter anyway but even so anything longer than …
