Lemon Garlic Chicken
Very Good 4.0/5

This is a marinade recipe that belongs to my friend Jodenna - very yummy! These are smaller serving sizes for Bariatric patients, a half chicken breast is equal to 1 serving and has just under 30 gr of Protein per serving.

Good Start Smoothie
Very Good 4.3/5
(3 ratings)

This is a yummy smoothie I drink most days, gives me energy and a nice boost to start my day the same way coffee used to but only now I don't crash afterwards!

For Bariatric Patients, add 1 scoop of your fav protein powder to make this a complete meal replacement or help you reach your protein quota for the day.

My favorite frozen fruits for smoothies are:

Pineapple
Mandarins (packed in water not syrup)
Bananas
Strawberries
Mango
Mellon
Kiwi
Blueberries
Acai berries
Cranberries
Rasberries
Blackberries

The best way to freeze your own fruit is to rinse well, pat dry with a towel and spread on a cookie sheet to freeze this way the fruit wont freeze in giant clumps that are difficult to break apart. Store frozen fruit in a ziplock bag or airtight container to prevent freezer burn.

This is a yummy mexican inspired dish, I love that the salad is served with salsa, sour cream & guacamole instead of boring old salad dressing. Nice & Low Calories for those Calorie Counters out there!

Stovetop Turkey Chilli
Very Good 4.5/5
(15 ratings)

This is delicious and easy to make !!

Usually Chili Recipes use ALL canned beans and the sodium level in canned beans is ridiculous so I have used a combination of both dried beans and canned beans in order to lower the sodium intake. When using canned beans, the majority of the sodium is from the liquid the beans are stored in to preserve them. I rinse, soak and rinse mt canned beans in order to ensure I get rid of all that sodium slop, I also use very warm water to rinse the beans, this will reduce the sodium by more than 75% per serving.

ENJOY!

This Turkey Chili has over 20 gr of Protein per serving!

Lactose Free whole wheat lasagna made with Turkey
Very Good 4.0/5
(1 rating)

This lasagna is made with lactose free mozzerella soy cheese and it is delicious! To lower the sodium use your own homemade pasta sauce, anything store bought in cans or jars has ridiculous amounts of sodium in it.

Matrix Vanilla Berry Protien Shake
Very Good 4.0/5

Matrix makes the best tasting protien powder I have ever had, it completely dissolves so you dont get that gritty sand quality, I now drink this everyday for breakfast and with over 30 g of protien per serving it gives you a boost of energy :) (this is a complete meal replacement, Matrix vanilla protein powder can be purshaed at your local health food store) a great way to lose weight!
