Another fact about fat

Dear Friends, I got a message from my good friend Hala about my post on fat on the nutrition label. She pointed out that some studies show that some saturated fats can have health benefits and warned me not to demonize them all. Well Hala…you are absolutely right! And I sort of went against my own policy of not labeling …

Nik’s Bariatric Shopping Bag

Well…maybe not THAT bag…  Ok, I’m just going to admit it. I have an affinity for Click Espresso Protein. I am not addicted, I don’t think, as evidenced by the fact that I’ve been out of it for a few months and have not gone bonkers. Partly because of my beloved decaf mochaccino. But now I have a few …

I’ll show you mine if you show me yours…

 Eating plans people! Get your mind outta the gutter! So a few weeks back you might remember I posted what I eat in a day. That post inspired a good number of comments and e-mails, many of the “OMG, I’m not the only one who eats!” variety. But it also got me to thinking. After weight loss surgery, we …

I get this question a lot from post-ops and I always debate how to answer it. Post-op group psychology is a funny thing. I’ve yet to meet a single post-op who admits to being able to eat a decent amount of food who portrays that as a good thing. I had severe restriction at first and then went through the …

Update/Preview of the new recipe book!

I know I announced about a cabillion years ago that I was updating the protein shake recipe book. Life is a trip. Besides the fact that I’m flying solo here on the blog, I don’t know if you all know I’m a single mom with the world’s MOST dysfunctional family. So…I get in writing/editing/revising where I can fit it in. …

Seven Habits of a “Bariatric Foodie”

This is a total riff off of the “Seven Habits of Highly Effective People” and there is probably a WLS version of this somewhere. But here at Bariatric Foodie, I like to think we approach things just a wee bit differently than the general bariatric community. Keeping that in mind, I compiled a list of seven habits that I think …

The Bariatric Foodie Guide to Food Measurements

~by  Nikki I’m a baking fanatic. Jen is not. So it’s no surprise that I am completely obsessed with measurements while Jen cooks more intuitively. I would imagine most cooks are like Jen. I mean really…do you always measure a tablespoon or do you sometimes throw a “pinch” of something in your cooked recipes? Even though we cook differently, Jen …

Nik’s Three Year Surgiversary

~by Nikki Today is my three year surgiversary. Notice there aren’t any exclamation points behind that sentence. Don’t get me wrong. I am grateful every day for the changes my RNY has brought. I am such a different person now than I was three years ago and I continue to change and learn new things about myself each and every …
