It’s almost here…New Year’s Eve, which in means parties, sequins and tons of sparkle, funny hats, watching the ball drop, and of course, FOOD. Crunchy, salty, warm, cheesy, sweet, spicy, cool, delicious snack food.
If you enjoy hosting or bringing something wherever you go, we understand how important it is to take care of yourself, but also cater to the needs of other guests. As a weight loss surgery warrior, it can be tricky to navigate the carb and carbonated infested party scene or provide an amazing dish to share, and not feel left out.
Don’t forget, after surgery, our goal is always protein first. With limited real-estate in the stomach, it is important to get the good in first. With that in mind, below, we’ve provided tried, and true high protein, satisfying, low carb, low sugar, fun, and delicious festive hors-d’oeuvres, or for those of us less fancy— SNACK FOOD!
Grab a pretty glass container, fill with water, and one of the following suggested combinations. Serve in a pretty glass and garnish with something festive like a swizzle stick or a sliver of fruit!
**For non-bariatric patients, these combos are great for mocktails utilizing club soda, lemon-lime soda, or ginger ale.
This is a fantastic recipe for patients who have successfully completed the Semi-Solid phase and are in the Soft Foods phase.
**We recommend grating your own cheese and not use pre-shredded.
**This recipe is a great base for additional garnishes like crumbled bacon, olives, and assorted hot sauces!
