Lately, I’ve really been exploring new cooking ideas. I found an awesome keto recipe for dinner. My favorite place to find recipes, believe it or not, is Instagram. Since my weight loss surgery, I have joined the very large WLS community on Instagram. I love it. So much variety; and so many recipes! Before going any further I really have to give credit for this recipe to my girl Angie. We connected via the WLS community on Instagram. Be sure to find her and follow her there for tons of great recipes: @angiedone_vsg
Sample Bariatric Meal Plan
Casseroles are some of my favorites. I always love a good keto casserole recipe to cook and eat. Something about having all the veggies and meats in one dish excites me. I am always on the hunt for a new, healthy, easy and delicious casserole!
Recipes That Feel Wrong…but They’re Not!
Obviously, as a bariatric patient, we always need recipes that are healthy and balanced. What I love about a good warm casserole is that it FEELS like comfort food….the bad kind (and by bad I mean oh so good). Below is my newest find from a friend in the WLS Instagram community.
