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!!!) …

Protein Pumpkin Bread

Indulge me a short manifesto. Every year (late-August, to be exact) the same thing happens. I innocently log onto my Facebook feed and see that my friends have started to “pumpkin all the things!” And frankly, it’s all a bit ridiculous to me.

I’ve just been testing one of the shake flavors that will be included in the 2012 Bariatric Foodie Holiday Survival Kit (those of you who ordered last year …

Pumpkin Protein Shake Starters

I’m really busy most days. Are you? If so you know that making some of the more decadent dessert shakes can be a hassle. Take pumpkin shakes for example. You have to crack open a can of pumpkin, dole out what you need for your shake, find something to store the rest of the pumpkin. All this makes those types …

Nik's Protein Pumpkin Custard

First, let’s straighten one thing out. There really is no difference between pumpkin custard and pumpkin pie filling. Pumpkin pie = pumpkin custard in a pie crust. That being out of our way, I did modify this recipe just a wee bit to make it fit into six ramekins. A traditional pumpkin pie recipe would fill probaby about 8 -10. …
