Bariatric Kitchen: Breakfast Casserole

We always encourage a patients to "pair" their carbohydrate foods with a protein food. Not only is this delicious and filling, a serving of this breakfast casserole is a nice balance of protein and carbohydrates as well as Vitamins A and C. These function as antioxidants and boost immunity in the body.

Bariatric Kitchen: Sweet Potato Turkey Chili

Because of limited stomach volume, it is often challenging for bariatric patients to consume adequate amounts of vegetables. This sweet potato turkey chili provides a healthy dose of not only protein but also of a variety of vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants.

Just one cup is loaded with nutrients beneficial for improved health: ground turkey as a lean protein source; black beans, which are high in folate, Vitamin B6, fiber and phytonutrients; sweet potatoes, which are rich in Vitamin A; tomatoes, which are high in lycopene, an anti-oxidant. Enjoy!

Bariatric Kitchen: Spiced Protein Pumpkin Custard

Did someone say pumpkin? This bariatric-friendly dessert has just the right touch of sweetness, and it includes a punch of protein! 

Getting enough Vitamin A and protein can be challenging after surgery. Post-op patients can sometimes be deficient in Vitamin A because of a decreased intake of fruits and vegetables. The source of protein in the custard is a whey protein, which is the most absorbable form of protein.
