Microwave Baked Apple

Microwave Baked AppleThanksgiving is less than a week away! Before you know it, Christmas will be here. My most favorite part of family gatherings during the fall/winter season is PIE. It’s delicious. It’s too easy to eat more than one slice.  This can add a lot of extra calories from fat and starch. So, today, I present to you the microwave baked apple. It tastes just like an apple pie and the best part? It takes 5 minutes to make!

  1. Wash and dry the apple, and then peel, core, and medium dice it.
  2. Place in a small microwave safe bowl. Pour a packet of Splenda over the apples. Sprinkle with cinnamon and add just a little water — it only takes a little!
  3. Cover, leaving a little room for air to escape, and microwave for 1 minute. Be careful when removing from the microwave, it will be hot! Check the softness of the apples and microwave more if needed.
  4. Once cooled a little, add a small spoonful of Cool Whip Lite and a sprinkle of cinnamon if you'd like. Enjoy!

Thanksgiving 2017 Menu

The holidays are always a challenge. Whether you are fresh out of having your weight loss surgery, a veteran sleeve patient, or working toward a bypass, the types of foods you eat matter. The holidays can be more trying when you are around family and friends who do not understand your restrictions.

In order to have the best holiday season possible, have a conversation with your loved ones about your restrictions. Tell them the types of foods that are best for you. Offer to make a few dishes that are bariatric friendly for the group to try.

There are a great deal of holiday recipes to choose from. Here are some of the holiday favorites from the WeightWise dietitians:

Should I Hire a Personal Trainer after Bariatric Surgery?

Exercise is crucial following bariatric surgery. It’s very important for maintaining the weight loss and staying healthy.

Some people struggle though because they don’t enjoy going to the gym. Often this leads to skipping exercise in general, or just doing it sparingly.

It helps to have someone supporting you, a partner or coach that can keep you disciplined. That’s why we recommend using personal trainers, especially because Oklahoma City has many well-qualified ones.

We also see that not everyone wants a trainer, or may not have the budget to keep one for awhile. That’s quite normal. We’ll give some other alternatives: simple options besides gyms and trainers that will help you keep the weight off and have you feeling active and energetic.

The most important part is that, after your bariatric surgery, you stay active and exercising. These tips will help you do that.

This version of Crustless Pumpkin Pie uses Splenda instead of sugar and is made without a crust to reduce carbohydrates. You still get to enjoy the rich custard-like filling without any of the guilt.
