These are a blast to make! I picked up holiday candy moulds at Joannes Fabrics for two dollars and could not believe how great they turned out. Really perfect and FUN. I made them, then I ate them. Yummy.
The best part of the Inspire Diet is NOT stressing about what to eat.
We're taking that one step further with enough recipes to last for 28 days! All of these fall within the Inspire Diet guidelines and will keep your family smiling and happy at the supper table!
I have a sweet tooth and this is one of the best tasting desserts I make. Plus you can't beat the calorie and carb count at near zero. Get out your glass bowl so you can learn 10 Minute Speed Set!
Salmon is very simple to cook, moist and easy to eat for those who have had bariatric surgery. It is also a beautiful plate for a sit down holiday meal.
The salad makes the super moist salmon even more delicious and creamy for a perfect post op meal.
Sweet Pepper and Cheese Frittata
I had a large wooden salad bowl in my office and once a week would assemble the ingredients for this salad. I love the way the cooked egg yolk blends with the dressing when it's tossed. It's super filling, tasty, good for you, easy to make on top of a desk and feeds a whole slew of people. I love this salad and so will you!
Remember when you were a kid and you hung onto that dollar because you wanted to make sure you spent it on something good? Same thing here. You don't want to spend your valuable pouch space on bread when the tuna is the protein star.
Sometimes I even moisten some Inspire Protein Kitchen Pancake Mix with enough milk to make a couple of drop biscuits to place on the bottom of our bowls too!
When I am running late for supper with nothing really planned, I stop for a half pound of large shrimp and a few salad ingredients. I can have this beautiful plate of food on the table in five minutes!
Super tender... you can mash the beef cubes with a fork. Perfect for bariatric eating. I serve with a side dish of pan roasted parsnips & carrots - boil peeled vegetables until tender and finish to golden in olive oil salt and pepper. Delicious.
I am a very fast cook. I put my protein on the counter, find a few complimentary ingredients and make a great dish!
We all look for that fast healthy tasty meal for a busy weeknight. This is it. Heaven in a bowl.
Tender Steak Salad is filling and full of protein - part of the meal plan for our Inspire Diet program - delicious Bariatric Eating
Keep these few items in your pantry for a night when you don't have time or you don't feel like heading to the store.
Easy. Tasty. Fast. Chicken and vegetables on a stick. Make a lovely cucumber tomato salad and you have bariatric perfection on a plate.
This time we have added Oscar Mayer Natural Hardwood Smoked Sausage slices! Oh my my!
Supper inspiration from Fresh Market sale 'Sashimi Tuna Steaks - Two for $7.99'. Assemble this awesome salad in five minutes.
If you have any doubt as to the unhealthiness of Chinese cuisine, look at the Nutrition Page of Pei Wei Asian Bistro. I wondered WHY I was so sleepy and sick after eating there and to my shock discovered that the Beef and Broccoli I chose had over 40 grams of sugar.
I have not intentionally had any real sugar since my bariatric surgery in 2001. That's a long time. I use sugar free desserts to stop myself from flying off the rails BEFORE it happens.
This is a super easy "meal" that will leave a smile on your face!
The stroganoff sauce is delicious. An excellent family meal when paired with a dressed mixed salad.
It is also very easy to make. Give it a try and it will be your 'go to' meal when you are short on time.
Make the PERFECT supper for The Inspire Diet
Serve this tender, fall-off-the-bone meat with sauteed Swiss chard or zucchini. It is very easy but the flavors are really deep and flavorful. Steak in the style of the pizzamaker.
Steak is hard to cook unless you give it some thought and then do it the same way every time. Its common to hear 'Restaurant Steak is so much better!', because it usually is.
EAT YOUR VEGETABLES... they are important to your life!
Seasoning is key to great simple food and since these are very simple freshly made turkey burgers, what you sprinkle on your meat along with basic cooking technique is going to make the biggest difference!
No Recipe…. it’s Easy. Hot Skillet. Brown Meat. Add Zucchini. Invite Mr. Barilla to bring a jar of his sauce! Yum.
