What the HELL is Sofrito?

Hey Foodies!  This month instead of doing the Foodie Fitness Corner, I’m handling the recipe of the month.  Long story short: I recently had surgery on my leg and I’m limited in activity. So rather than bore you all with my attempts at exercising within my doctor’s limits, I thought I’d put on my chef hat and bad Julia Child’s …

WLS-friendly Lunchables (the sequel!)

You all might remember my first, more traditional, WLS-friendly Lunchable. I’ve been having lots of fun creating different iterations of this idea. Today’s offering: tuna salad with halved cherry tomatoes, onions, TONS of garlic salt, salt, pepper and a little canola mayo. Alongside it are my “cuke-ers” (cucumber crackers) and I have a nectarine for a sweet finish! What would …

Nik’s Protein-y Zucchini Fritters

This started out with me trying to dispel a myth. You see, someone at work told me they’d eaten a zucchini fritter that tasted just like a crab cake. Being a lifelong Marylander (home of the crab cake) I thought surely this cannot be. So I took to the only place I thought might hold the answer: The Google. Through The …

The “Super Chill” Method for making a Protein Frosty

Did you like yourself a Wendy’s Frosty pre-op? I did. It was a little different than a milkshake. Thicker, more ice. It could hold a spoon HOSTAGE! Yeah…the Frosty is nice. But we’re not living like that anymore! But did you know you can achieve that same effect with your protein shake? Yep! And I’m going to tell you how. …

Spicy Quinoa & Tomatoes

So the other day I posted about this great vegetarian (possibly vegan, you all tell me) meal I made. We really have Hillery, our Foodie Fitness Correspondent from the email newsletter, to thank for this one folks. She made a chicken dish that inspired me! It was wonderfully yummy: herby, savory, a touch spicy! But for whatever reason I just …
