(Low carb) Stuffing your face…

The holidays are pretty much upon us. And with the holidays come the foods. ALL of the foods. Because of this, these months can be very hard on a lot of us as bariatric patients. There are many ways to make this time as enjoyable as possible (including the tips and tricks listed in my…

I’ve been stewing over this…

It’s officially “that time of year” again. Time for fuzzy sweaters, thick socks and even thicker stews! Anyone who knows me knows that this is my most favorite-est time of the year. The sights, the smells, the traditions, and of course the foods. But you don’t come here to read my musings on the best…

Do we have time for a quickie?

  With these posts, I usually like to write some back story, or how/why I came up with the recipe. You know, some sort of fun beyond just the recipe itself. The only downside to that is (most times) only being able to post one recipe at a time. Between recipe conception, testing, nutrition research,…

Talk to the hand, ’cause it’s full of granola!

You read right, granola on a blog dedicated to bariatric friendly life! This granola is special though; it’s entirely grain-free and low carb! One of the biggest things I’ve found lacking in my diet since I first had bariatric surgery is texture. Everything is so mushy! If I want that crispy crunch, it’s either really…

One time, in Summer (camp?)

Here in Central New York, it’s finally starting to look like Summer. Thanks to a fairly tame winter, we have had an extremely wet and cloudy Spring. There’s no guarantee that Summer will be the same, but if we follow the climatological trends that CNY is known to follow, then I’ll be do more umbrella…

Product Time, Come on Tell Your Friends…

I get a lot of questions as to a lot of the products I use, both in cooking and on their own, as well as where I find my information or what apps I use. I figured with all that I’ve been doing lately, as far as developing recipes and getting ready for my revision…

Use your Egg-Noggin with this one…

While I intended the Triamisu brownies to be the last recipe post before Christmas, I had a request for my Low Carb Eggnog recipe. Who am I to deny such a simple request? Traditionally, eggnog is extremely sugary and thick, so obviously very outside of the boundaries of what we should have as low carbers/bariatric…

I Tiramis-You…

Okay guys, I’m super excited about this recipe. This is a bit of a departure from the rest of the Holiday Survival dessert recipes. Instead of cookies or candies, tonight I have Tiramisu Brownies for you! This recipe combines a low carb, fudgey brownie recipe with a ricotta custard topping. I will admit that the…

Dat Cookie, Dough….

Get it?… Cookie though? Cookie dough?….  Note to self: puns aren’t funny if you have to explain them. Now where’s the window so I can throw this rule out of it and continue in my ways? Moving on… Peanut butter cookies. These babies right here are why I feel so bad for people with peanut…
