There are many brands that have turkey and lean beef and they are quite tasty. I don’t tend to buy pre-packaged meatballs, though. Why? (Broken record in 5, 4, 3, 2…) Well first …

Versatile? Mmmm…not really. Ok, so let me just say what it is I’m trying to say. There are very few people who don’t like this recipe! New …

I heart Nachos! You will, too!

~~posted by Jen Yes, I eat nachos as a WLS post-op. They were a pre-op favorite and not something I wanted to give up in my post-op lifestyle. So, I had to find a way to make them work in my plan. I don’t eat them every day, but I do have them probably once a week. The first step …
