When I started playing around with the idea of making a nice soft bun with cauliflower, it popped into my head to sprinkle the tops with a lovely coat of Everything Bagel Seasoning!
This is a delicious old/new way to serve this vegetable - cauliflower was just 'meh' before I rediscovered the way my grandma used to fix it.
Tomatoes are really good for us - slice them and you've got an instant salad, a few chops and you've got a bowl of juicy salsa that moistens your protein.
Perfect for hot summer nights!

My goal was to create some great football game food - light and flavorful AND ECONOMICAL - this is the result!
The goal in this phase is to introduce a few calories into your diet and ready your surgically altered stomach and intestines for food. Doctors vary in their requirements for length of time in this food stage; some as little as a few days to as long as a month or even longer in cases. Stay with your surgeons prescribed timeline.
I traveled to Salt Lake City for a meeting last week and had some soup from Caputo's Italian Deli that was so delicious that I had to recreate it at home.

I just had my first post op check up and they released me to eat Pureés, what about scrambled eggs?
Survey says PLANNING is how post ops remain at goal. They don't eat chips and dip during the football game just because they have a craving or have lost all their weight... they happily live with the changes that got them to goal for life.

My mom used to make Shepherds Pie in a brown ceramic dish with a big handle. It was creamy and beefy with lots of delicious gravy. With the explosion of cauliflower, I can make lovely roasted and whipped *faked* potatoes... perfect to top the beef and gravy. This is a wonderful warm and comforting dish that you will love.
Getting an invite to a family or friends barbecue is always exciting, but when you have had bariatric surgery, the second thought is often about not being able to eat. There is hidden sugar in many summer dishes.
