My favorite season is autumn. Living in New England we are blessed with perfect fall weather. From the crispness in the air and the beautiful foliage on the trees it’s an incredible place to be this season. Another reason that fall is amazing is that it’s OFFICIALLY PUMPKIN SPICE SEASON! I love the smell of […]
“What are your favorite foods? “How do you meal prep?” “What about my family?” “Can you have dessert?” “How can you diversify food?” As I make the way for the release of my book Food, Sweat, & Fears I was thinking of the questions I get asked frequently about post Bariatric Surgery. There are a […]

Today is my Dad’s 77th Birthday so I thought I’d take this opportunity – since this is a blog about weight loss and food – to discuss these automatic feelings that surface when you face celebrations as a person trying to lose or maintain weight. The first thing most people think about when they hear […]

I was never much of a cook. My lack of cooking is almost legendary. My husband is my perfect match because he loves cooking and grocery shopping which are two things I could live without. One of the things that really had to change when I had my RNY surgery was I had to learn how to cook.
After much trial and error, I started to learn about seasonings and food combinations and really getting into the calorie counts. It started to become challenging in a good way and even a little bit fun. Many people have asked me about my recipes since I can be a bit of a post-a-holic on Facebook and Instagram.
