Today’s recipe on the website blog (not here - you need to go to the bariatriccookery website and link is in bio) is for Steak and New 🥔 Potato Skewers - my two favourite foods in an easy to prepare summer combo. Do try the tahini dressing to serve with them, even if just a drizzle, it lifts this simple recipe into the luxury class. We’re having them for lunch today outside on the terrace. A mid-week treat because we’re worth it! #bariatriccookery #wlsfood #bariatricfood #returntoslender #eatrightwitheverybite #steakskewers #seasonalspuds #bbq #getagrillon #bariatrics #bariatricrecipes #bariatriccentral #bariatricadvice #bariatricportioncontrol #bariatricportionproducts #wls

Speedy chilli with whole grain rice and lime infused yogurt, sprinkled with chopped coriander, for supper. Another meal cooked by my son, Charlie, for the family since I am still suffering with my arm in a sling (and 3 weeks still to go)! He made it with beef (but could you could use other meat, quorn or even leave out), tomatoes, peppers, canned beans in chilli sauce and other seasonings - pan cooked on the hob in under 30 minutes. Portion control better from him tonight with 2 tablespoons rice and 3 heaped ones of chilli for me - I barely left any. Hoping this cooking lark becomes a regular thing from him. #bariatriccookery #returntoslender #wlsportioncontrol #speedychilli #eatrightwitheverybite #guestcook #wlsdiet #takeaseat #nightoffcooking #arightcharlie

An arranged rather than cooked lunch today. Deli meats, cheese, olives and fruit for some tasty nibbling on my #bariatricportionplate #bariatricfood #bariatriccookery #returntoslender #eatrightwitheverybite #deliplate #bariatricportionproducts #summerloving #wlsfood #bariatriccentral #noneedtocook

Might seem a bit bizarre but why not have a baked apple (or other baked fruit) for breakfast for a change? I’m having just that today with a dollop of Greek yogurt for added protein on top. I baked this with just half a teaspoon of dried fruit in its middle and a squeeze of orange juice over the top. Lovely hot, warm or cold. #bakedapple #fruitystart #bariatriccookery #returntoslender #eatrightwitheverybite #anappleaday #baricol #wlsfood #bariatricportioncontrol

Thai noodle with shredded chicken and red pepper salad prepared for me by my son Charlie for supper tonight - and very tasty it is too. Only managed about a third of this portion, he still hasn’t got #wlsportioncontrol sorted (you could have put his portion on a dustbin lid!) and so I’ve kept the rest for another lunch box meal. Loved the coriander, chopped peanut, soy sauce, Thai spice, mirin and lime in the light dressing - sounds complex but ready in 20 minutes. I could get used to this service. Didn’t even have to help with the washing up - a truly restful Sunday and early evening meal. #thaisalad #wlsportioncontrol #whatsinyourbowl #saladdays #saladspin #bariatriccookery #returntoslender #eatrightwitheverybite #oodlesofnoodles #wlsfood #bemyguest #sundayrestday❤️ #bariatriccentral #bariatricfood

Wimbledon final today wouldn’t be complete unless there were strawberries 🍓 on the menu. If you’re quick you could beat the heat and have a berry delicious fro-yo popsicle when the action heats up along with the weather. Make by blitzing strawberries with yogurt and pouring into moulds to freeze. No moulds? Then use a drinking cup instead. Ideal too for the early stages of eating after surgery. #berrydelicious #froyopops #berriedtreasures #onice #softfooddiet #bariatriccookery #returntoslender #eatrightwitheverybite #wimbledon #strawberries🍓 #yogurt #wlsdiet #bariatricfood

For that morning when you can’t decide between sweet or savoury! I’ve copied a option my Ma would adopt - cut out the centre of a piece of toast and pop in an egg to cook, then use the centre toast circle to top with fruity preserve. So high protein bread it is with low sugar raspberry jam (although chia would be good). Beats two slices of toast (which I can never manage). #bestofbothworlds #sweetandsavoury #decisionsdecisions #bariatricbreakfast #bariatriccookery #bariatricportionplate #bariatriccutlery #returntoslender #eatrightwitheverybite #bariatriccentral #baricol #wlsfood

Supper tonight is what was scheduled for last night but that marathon tennis semi final match kept me away from the kitchen. It’s baked monkfish tails served with a hollandaise sauce flavoured with chives. Quite fitting for Bastille Day - and served with a couple of baby new potatoes and petits pois with spring onions/scallions. Ooh la la! Served on my bariatric portion plate for accountability and with bariatric cutlery to slow down my eating speed. What’s on your plate tonight? #abitoffrench #bariatricportionplate #bariatriccutlery #bariatriccookery #returntoslender #eatrightwitheverybite #wlsfood #monkfish #hollandaise #bariatriccookwithme #carolbowenball #bastilleday🇫🇷 #bariatricfood #whatsonyourplate #oohlala #frenchfood

Momma's got her little helper and we are off getting items to start a home project! Feeling really great today!

I got this tumbler from @walmart and I love it for my water because it stays so flipping cold! $6.88 for an off brand Yeti ain't bad in my book! Plus it's a cute marble print!

Brazilian avocado and lime smoothie is my breakfast today. I rarely have just a meal in a glass but today it is so warm already that this appealed and is cooling as well as nourishing. Made with avocado, unsweetened almond milk and lime it’s gorgeously smooth and full of good fats. Recipe is in the latest #freebariatriccookerynewsletter which you can view on the website (link in bio). #smoothie #avocadosmoothie #breakfastinaglass #mealinaglass #bariatricfood #bariatriccookery #bariatriccookwithme #carolbowenball #returntoslender #eatrightwitheverybite #bariatriccentral #wlsfood

I have just made my away day lunch for tomorrow in my #bariatricbentobox but if this tennis marathon continues I might well be having it for supper tonight since it’s too exciting to leave the action! In my box is crustless quiche (with feta and veggies), salad greens, tomatoes, some Dr Karg mini seeded crackers and a handful of raspberries for a sweet finish. #packedlunch #bariatricbento #bariatriccookery #wlsfood #returntoslender #eatrightwitheverybite #notgoinganywhere #bariatriccentral #crustlessquiche #bariatricdiet #highprotein #bariatricportionproducts #bariatricportioncontrol

STRAWBERRIES & SCREEN for me today! That’s right I am taking some time out this afternoon to watch the men’s semi finals at Wimbledon but will forego the usual strawberry offering associated with it. Instead I shall feast on a strawberry and bean salad (fabulous combo, trust me on this) with red onion and a minty dressing. #loveall #acefood #greatserve #bariatricfood #bariatriccookery #returntoslender #eatrightwitheverybite #bariatricdiet #strawberryandbeansalad #bariatricportionplate #bariatriccutlery #bariatriccookwithme #carolbowenball #fruitysalad

I’ll be honest with you - I DIDN’T WANT TO COOK TONIGHT! I have had a tricky day where my body hurts and I just wanted to roll back and order takeaway or graze on nibbles. But if there’s one thing I have learnt over the years since my wls op it’s that food can help to heal you too. So whilst I accept I have to take my recuperation from this shoulder surgery a day at a time and not rush things I also know I can prioritise my food to help with the healing process. So I have cooked a veal saltimbocca for myself and Mr B and we’re having it with some carrot mash and roasted veggies. I never tire of the latter and I firmly believe eating the rainbow ensures good health and nourishment. Hope an early night helps me to rise tomorrow with a bit more zip! #bariatriccookery #returntoslender #eatrightwitheverybite #eatingtherainbow #foodforhealth #foodforhealing #wlsfood #bariatriccentral #bariatriccookwithme #carolbowenball #vealsaltimbocca #bariatricportionplate #bariatriccutlery

Can’t make up my mind as to whether to call this a schnitzel or mock chicken cordon bleu but it’s the latter really with a ground almond/almond flour coating rather than the usual breadcrumb one and very delicious too. I baked mine and served with veggies. Inside was gooey cheese and ham and I think next time I would serve with a spoonful of low sugar tomato sauce. Great protein though! Having it for a hearty and early lunch since supper last night was meagre (due to footie nerves). Probably won’t eat all the chicken (even though only a small breast) but as every day is different who knows? #bariatriccookery #bariatriccentral #smallportionplease #chickenschnitzel #chickencordonbleu #eatrightwitheverybite #almondcrust #returntoslender #bariatricfood #bariatricportionproducts #bariatricportionplate #bariatriccutlery #wlsfood #highprotein

Lunch is crunch today! Crispy Parmesan crisps served with guacamole, hummus, tomatoes and olives. Eaten out of doors so that I can soak up those vitamin D rays. #bariatriccookery #bariatriccentral #returntoslender #eatrightwitheverybite #parmesancrisp #guacamole #hummus #dipanddunk #alfrescofood #smallportionplease #bariatricportionplate #wlsfood #bariatricdiet
