At the beginning of Autumn/Fall I like to upgrade or change my salad salad offerings and sides to something a bit more substantial. Something that will withstand the rigours of a lunchbox outing to office, park, school or picnic rug, or will add crunch, flavour and texture to an evening meal instead of vegetables. Coleslaw

Weight-loss surgery works on a number of levels but the main one is that you will be restricted in how much you can eat in one sitting. Your surgeon gives your body something of a re-set and you gain a new built-in portion control system. For many this works fabulously well and for a good period
We made this Spinach and Ricotta Frittata (a kind of Spanish omelette) to celebrate the arrival of our new Bariatric Bento Box. It’s protein-rich, easy to make and delicious both hot and cold. We like to serve with salad but it would make an equally good meal with other seasonal vegetables or just by itself.
Those of you who follow me on Facebook and Twitter will have noticed recently that I have been posting regularly on Instagram. I am loving this new social media vehicle and it gives me a great opportunity to show you the kind of foods that I eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner and as a snack.
This last week life has been a picnic! I’ve been out and about quite a lot on the road for work; visiting some newsworthy attractions for inspiration; and generally taking some time out. I learnt the lesson again, and fairly quickly, that many venues and road-side stop-offs just don’t cut it for bariatric eating.
