BF Top 5: Soup for the Weight Loss Surgery Soul

Baby, it’s cold outside! I hear it even snowed in Southern California. Wow. Cold times, in my mind at least, call for SOUP! I get asked about soup a lot.

Nik's Roasted Red Pepper Puree Soup

Show here with two Parmesan crisps. To make, simply bake small heaps of Parmesan cheese in a 350 degree oven until they harden, about 12 minutes. I like this soup. A LOT. What I like best about it is its versatility. For newer post-ops this soup is quick, comforting and gives you something that is not sweet. For longer-term folks …

Kale & Quinoa Soup

  Those of you who were on Facebook and Twitter last night, and experienced my impromptu “cook-a-long” may wonder what prompted me to make soup, from scratch, after 10 p.m. And that would be a valid question. Yesterday I had a small bout of LPS (Little Pouch Syndrome, or, when you just get full very fast with very little food). …

Nik’s Cheesy “Faux-tato” Bacon Soup

 This soup is good. No…this soup is DAMN good. OMG. I have to get myself together just to give you the recipe. So…potato soup. Oddly enough, I wasn’t a big fan pre-op. I loved a nice, loaded baked potato but soup didn’t really do much for me. But I love this soup. I was inspired to make it by …
