If you've had Gastric Sleeve, Bypass, Adjustable Band or Duodenal Switch surgery, that doesn't mean you have to miss out on seasonal favorites throughout Christmas and New Year's with our "tastes of the holiday" protein drinks.
These bariatric-friendly holiday recipes were developed by a dietitian and bariatric/nutrition counseling expert Sharon Howard, R.D. exclusively for Bariatric Choice.
Even though you just had (or recently just had) bariatric surgery during the holidays and your diet is limited to mostly protein supplements, enjoy some of the flavors you savor this time of year! You can substitute diet almond milk for skim milk, but you will reduce the protein content. All recipes are mixed in a blender, or can be shaken, or stirred!
