Roasted Veggies and Couscous

Ok don’t be afraid. Seriously. Don’t! It’s couscous. Breathe. Are you breathing? Even if you don’t eat couscous there are some legit reasons you should consider this dish: Not all carbs are evil. Not even all starches are evil. Especially once you are further out and are cleared to incorporate them into your daily eating. Your family will eat this. …

Spicy Summer Beans & Sausage

Y’all need to know you almost didn’t get a picture of these spicy beans and sausage. Why? Because somewhere along the line my well-crafted, time-tested method for making sure nobody eats my bloggable food broke down this week! Let me tell you how that usually goes. Usually my family knows when I am making food to blog because it takes forever …

Easy Refrigerator Pickles

Refrigerator pickles. Because…summer! Because weird summer with varying temperatures, weird rainfall patterns, all of which have resulted (in my homestate of Maryland) in a bumper crop of pickling cucumbers. Because also…cold, crunchy and satisfying. Oh…and super low-cal! And lastly because…Nik has a deep-seeded fear of canning things (true fact: don’t ask me why, it’s a totally unfounded fear I’ll get …

PB&J Protein Shake (featuring BiPro USA Strawberry whey)

PB&J protein shake. Yeah! Forgive my exuberance but if you’ve followed Bariatric Foodie for any length of time you’ll know that I love all things peanut butter. I love the texture. I love the taste. I even love why it was invented (by George Washington Carver who was looking for a nutrient and calorie dense food so that people could get …

Strawberry Shortcake Protein Shake (featuring BiPro Strawberry)

So if you read my product review for BiPro Strawberry the one, resounding message was that I’m not that fond of strawberry protein shakes. I must say…this might be the exception. And no I’m not just saying that because I love me some BiPro (although I do). I did actually, genuinely enjoy this shake! It was so easy too! You guys! …

Peach-Ginger Chia Protein Popsicles

So first let’s address the elephant in the room: this is not the most attractive popsicle you’ve ever seen. If this popsicle were at television character, it’d probably be Jan Brady (not that Jan wasn’t attractive but she never thought she was as attractive as Marsha), especially in comparison to my Strawberry-Mint & Cheesecake protein pops. If it were a …

Strawberry-Mint & Cheesecake Protein Pops (featuring BiPro USA)

It’s summer! Sorta. I mean…theoretically it’s summer. Even on the calendar it is summer. Someone forgot to send Baltimore the memo. Don’t get me wrong. We have intermittent summer going on here. But it’s very indecisive. It’s like the city wants it to be summer but it’s afraid to let go of spring? We get these random, gorgeously warm days …

Easy Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup

So…I had a problem when I was photographing this Chicken Tortilla Soup. No it was not the tortilla chips (although thanks for the vote of confidence). This. Soup. Is. So. Good. It’s like…”put-it-in-the-crockpot-and-go-back-every-five-minutes-to-test-and-see-if-it’s-still-good” good. It’s…”take a small slurp between every shot you take of the recipe” good. It’s “this-soup-may-never-make-it-to-the-dinner-table” good! Thankfully, this is a big batch recipe, so that didn’t happen. …
