SML BEhealthydrinks Bariatric Eating’s New Home? Still a fail. Shame.

Behealthydrinks focuses on top quality protein drinks and easy blending powders. Pure quality, whey protein isolate, with natural ingredients. All our products are are regularly tested for purity and manufactured in GMP certified and organic facilities…

Except – they do not ship your purchases.  Who really gives a fuck WHERE it comes from?  I KNOW where it comes from and I can SELL THE SAME PRODUCT TO YOU.

But, you'd get it.  I'm not that nice right now.

Do not be fooled by the "new" names and "new" store front.  This is the same company as Bariatric Eating, which has left hundreds of customers hanging.

The only communication I have received comes from an employee of BE — ON FACEBOOK.  There has been zero actual customer-interaction in any way.

Shame on you, Susan Maria Leach.  You could have done SO much with this situation.

Bariatric Immunity Dated For Freshness

I just stumbled on a super old "what did you eat today"-type post of my own while looking for a protein bar review.  It shocks me to see how I ate at former stages of this journey.  I remember my thoughts back then, about how I thought I was eating too many calories.  Or even how random people would tell me how I was doing it wrong.

My first thought now is —


Roasted Pureed or Mashed Cauliflower

One of the best substitutions for a white potato is cauliflower.  A serving of the cruciferious veggie contains under 30 calories and 5 carbs!  By using cauliflower in dishes like mashed "potatoes" — you dump a huge amount of carbohydrates — which is beneficial for a bariatric surgery patient as we are typically restricting our intake of the blood sugar spikers.

And, cauliflower tastes really, really good, when you put stuff on and around it.  <g>
