Your Very Favoirte Bariatric Cookbook
on 2/3/14 2:23 pm
I only want to buy one, and there are several out there. Can anyone suggest a favorite? I do prefer simplistic, easily accessible ingredients. My surgery is in less than two months, and I want to try out some recipes on the family. :D

Might I suggest www.theworldaccordingtoeggface.com? Shelly has hundreds of recipes (you can search), that are ALL WL friendly - and delish! I spent 2 hours in the kitchen yesterday cooking and frrezing lots of yummy things for the next two weeks - and all recipes came from her. And plus, with a cook book you're always limited - Shelly adds stuff almost everyday! Alos, there are TONS of recipes on this site too.
Good idea to try them on the Fam - get some input!

Are they free! If so, that is an excellent suggestion! I have 500 cookbooks and most are tasty but have caloric and fatty recipes. If I bring home ONE more recipe book, my bookshelf will collapse!
Gotta love the internet!

Three pounds below Goal!!! Yay !
I would look around online. Any site with a search feature can be a source of new ideas. Just search for low carb and explore :)
Food network has an app called in the kitchen if you use apps. You can save things you like and categorize them.

I agree with the others. With all the wonderful free recipe sites out there, there is no reason to spend money on a book. You've gotten some great suggestions - you can also check out the Atkins website, you can narrow your search on Allrecipes.com by "low carb", or simply do a search for "low carb recipes". There's TONS of great stuff for free!

SAND...it's not a club...it's a frame of mind...
I broke down and started using Pintrest. It has all sorst of search features, and then I can catagorize teh recipes. I started by putting different recipes into boards based on the phase I am in. Right now I am working off of the Pureed/soft phase. I'll transition to the easy phase next week, followed by the normal phase. Ihave not been a big fan of pintrest, but this seems to work really well for me. Also, if you see a recipe online, you can pin it yourself so again you have an organized repository for recipes.
PS - As I make the recipe, I take care to add it to myfittnesspal so I always have the nutrician facts if I want to make it again.

Eggface=YES. Eating Well After Surgery=Can't wait to start with it. But the most practical on I got (my sister gave me EWAS and this for Christmas) was Recipes For Weight Loss Surgery Success. It was the most useful to me immediately after surgery. I wanted to eat all the beautiful stuff in EWAS, but I didn't have the energy. RFWLSS had simple but interesting recipes for getting through the first few stages without wanting to scream your head off from boredom. I especially recommend the Salmon Dill Spread and the Seafood Salad.
