This delicious alternative to classic pulled pork will be a hit any way you serve it! Serve with Nabisco® Reduced-Calorie Triscuit® Crackers or 1/2 of a small whole-wheat hamburger bun, if tolerated. Nutrition information is not included for these serving options.

If you are in the early post-surgery stages, this can be pureed, also.

This recipe may be used for your entire family but the portions are especially adapted for those who have had Lap-Band surgery.

This delicious dessert or snack is for persons who are at least 6 months post-op as the fresh berries may be problematic if eaten sooner.

This makes a yummy, easy-on-the-tummy soup for a cool Autumn or Winter Day. This is also good pureed for early post-op eating plans.

This is a quick microwave recipe that makes a yummy snack! It could also be pureed but may need a tablespoon or two of hot water added.

While eveyone else is having a high-fat, high-sugar dessert at Thanksgiving, make this yummy alternative in a jiffy for yourself! But, watchout! Everyone else may want one, too!

For color, I like to use a variety of red, yellow and orange peppers. I prefer the sweetness of those colors to the green peppers but the nutritional difference is not significant so you can use what you like.

This could also be pureed for those early post-surgical stages.

We follow a low-sodium diet in our home so the sodium in the pasta sauce was enough for us but for those who prefer, you may want to add salt and/or pepper to the mixture.
