I apologize for the delay, had a few setbacks..
So I know it has been while since I had last posted, actually November was my last post. Just before Thanksgiving I got a new job, then the holidays, and then life in general happened. I got tired, stressed, and just had no time to focus on myself. Honestly, I fell off the wagon with the eating because of it all. I had no time to cook, I was ordering out all the time and basically triggered my binge eating disorder again. Gained 15 lbs. Fell into a depression. Hasn’t been fun.
Lately I finally took the time to take a step back and realized I was beginning to walk down that dark road again and I turned around. Everything takes baby steps. I’m going back to my Nutritionists from my Bariatric surgery and getting myself on track again.
Thank you everyone for being patient, and I hope you check out the new recipes I will be posting in the near future! Stay tuned!!
Sooooooo if you haven’t read my story on here, Here is a quick recap:
I have suffered from a severe weight problem literally my entire life. Had terrible over-eating habits that stemmed from struggling with depression and anxiety, and a very unhealthy lifestyle. Well it eventually lead to my health going to complete crap. I couldn’t move, couldn’t breathe, and basically had no quality of life. Towards the end of 2019, my doctors broke the news to me that if I don’t fix this now, my heart will not make it to see the age of 30. I was one more bad blood test away from being put on pre-diabetic medication, and my sleep apnea was so bad they have no idea how I haven’t had a heart attack yet. Well that was the final straw. I wanted my life back, and I will take my life back. January 2nd, 2020, I saw a Bariatric Surgeon, and began a diet to save my life. I lost 25 lbs. in 3 months, and on March 11th, 2020 I had the Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery– basically had 2/3’s of my stomach chopped off so I couldn’t eat so much (the surgery is basically internal portion control). It’s by no means a quick fix, if you don’t eat right and exercise you can easily gain weight. Well I stuck to the diet, definitely had some slip ups along the way…
….But here is where I’m at now:

Sorry for the wait!…
Thank you everyone for patiently waiting. I apologize for the delay in posting. Rapid weight loss apparently can cause Gallbladder problems, and on July 30th I had to have my gallbladder removed. The recovery did not go as smooth or as fast as we predicted so it took a bit longer to get any recipes up. On the bright side, it gave me plenty of time to put new recipes together!
Now that I am all healed up, here are some recipes to expect this week:
- Seared Scallops with a Spinach and Mushroom Quinoa Risotto
- Air-Fried Cauliflower Zucchini Tots with a Roasted Tomato Aioli Dipping Sauce
- Spiced Pear Cake with a Maple Butter Cream
- Low-Carb Ramen
