The Bariatric Foodie Holiday Cooking Club


Here’s what they don’t tell you about the holidays. Sure, it’s all about food. But…the food isn’t just about food. It’s also about family, culture, history, tradition…

All of which make it FREAKING hard to make changes to the food!

It’s maddening – especially when you are trying to change your lifestyle habits.

So what are we supposed to do? Rely on willpower? Eh. That can work but it’s exhausting.

Instead…I say we make a plan. And that’s where The Bariatric Foodie Holiday Cooking Club comes in.

A place for us

Imagine for a moment, if you will, that you had a place where you could:

  • Brainstorm healthy tweaks you can make to your family’s favorite holiday dishes
  • Get step-by-step instructions (or even demonstrations) of how to make you-sized versions of healthy holiday treats (read: you don’t have to worry about what anyone else thinks because you made just enough for you!)
  • Make a strategy to get through the holiday parties (like your office party where there’s always plenty of sweets and everyone gets smashed!)
  • Receive a fun weekly challenge to help keep your head in the game throughout the holidays
  • Commiserate about the holidays – not just about food, but also the people and situations – with others who get it
  • Check in on the actual day of the holiday to hold yourself accountable
  • Cry wolf, and someone will help you!

Well guess what? I have created that place. It’s already made. It’s just waiting for YOU to join!

And believe me…membership has it’s benefits. Check it out.

How it will work

The Bariatric Foodie Holiday Cooking Club will take place on Facebook, through a secret Facebook group. Secret = not only can folks not see what you say, they can’t even find the group (not even through search) unless they are themselves a member!

When you join you’ll be given access to the group, in which you are free to chat with others about your challenges getting through the holidays. This will be your place to air out concerns, ask questions and draw on the experience of other post-ops just like you.

But then there will also be support directly related to food. Because…it’s the holidays! We need to make a plan about the food!

To that end, you’ll be able to:

  • Receive a paperback copy of The Bariatric Foodie Holiday Survival Guide, which is full of healthy swaps to your favorite holiday recipes plus features tips for dealing with the many awkward social situations the holidays bring
  • Take part in live cooking demonstrations, hosted by Nik, featuring recipes from the holiday survival guide (and no worries if you miss one – the videos will be there for you when you need them!)
  • Get direct support in tweaking your family recipes to make them a little (or a lot) healthier
  • Help reducing your recipes, in case you just want to make enough for yourself (because hey…sometimes our families just can’t be convinced!)
  • Help finding and tweaking any recipe you come across that you want to try out for the holidays

There will also be fun challenges to help you stay focused on taking care of yourself! Nothing too big or stressful, just a few healthy activities you can participate in that will reinforce the good habits you are building. You’ll also have access to a private chat room where you can come anytime you need to talk to someone!

You can join the club now, but official club activities will begin on November 14.  You can join anytime, but don’t delay – you don’t want to miss any of what this Club has to offer!

As I said above, the club will reference recipes from The Bariatric Foodie Holiday Survival Guide. Now…you may just want the book. I get that. I mean, maybe clubs aren’t your thing (although this one is going to be SO much fun!). If you’d like to just get a copy of the book, it is available on Amazon, and you can get it by clicking here!

But I’m hope, hope, hoping you’ll want to get the book and join the club. If so, read on!

Join the Club!

There are two options for joining the Bariatric Foodie Holiday Cooking Club. I highly suggest that if you don’t have a copy of The Bariatric Foodie Holiday Survival Guide that you choose the option that includes the book. It will be heavily referenced!

Give yourself the gift of a little extra support this holiday season – join the club!
