Sauteed Green Beans

Sauteed Green Beans. You might be thinking, “Is this the end to soggy green beans?!” Well, I’m here to tell you that soggy beans are a part of your past and sauteed green beans are the future. I won’t tell you that this is similar to a green bean casserole, because it’s not. But I will tell you that I think it’s better. You can actually taste the green beans!

Let’s dive in…

Bacon Stuffed Zucchini

I love all things stuffed. Well, not all things, but zucchini? Yep, definitely love it stuffed. And stuffing things with bacon is something I will do way more often! My husband said (and I quote), “what other vegetables can you make taste like bacon?”

So, for the recipe for these wonderful little boats…just keep reading!

Quick and Easy Migas

Think Mexican food is off limits?  No way!  There are so many flavors that are masked by those chips and tortillas. If the yummy meal Chris posted on Facebook didn’t convince you, then may I introduce to you one of my fave go-to meals for a quick breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Migas are a Tex-Mex favorite consisting of scrambled eggs, tortillas strips, diced onions, peppers, fresh tomatoes and cheese, topped with salsa.  Last night, my husband and I enjoyed a bariatric friendly version (sans tortilla strips) of this delish dish.  Migas as a snap to make with minimal prep and cook time.  Ole!

Roasted Cornish Hen

Recipe creating can be intimidating. Especially if you have never had this particular food. That’s how I felt making roasted cornish hens. I have never had a cornish hen so my frame of reference for spices was nil. However, I must say, this recipe for roasted cornish hens was phenomenal! It will be a great addition to your Thanksgiving menu. Especially for you postop people whose portion is smaller— a cornish hen is much smaller than a turkey with the same kind of flair.

I love pumpkin anything, so naturally, the pie pumpkin is one of my favorite things to cook with this time of year. These tasty little things can be used for so much more than decorating or carving. So get ready for pumpkin everything!!

A patient recommended Weightwise for weight loss procedures

Why refer patients to Weightwise?

As physicians, we work to understand our patients and their bodies. What’s best for them? How can we help them live a healthy, active lifestyle that celebrates the gift of life? For some patients, extra weight hinders the ability to get out and enjoy things that others may take for granted and in recent years, weight loss surgery has been able to help patients lose the weight that has held them back for years. There are a lot of weight loss surgery options out there now and centers that claim to specialize in it.
