5-Ingredient-Mexican-Quinoa-Stuffed-Peppers-11-1

 

https://www.gimmesomeoven.com/5-ingredient-mexican-quinoa-stuffed-peppers/

This recipe uses fresh ingredients and quinoa, which is a great source of fiber and a great substitute for those wishing to avoid gluten!

Ingredients:

  • 6 medium bell peppers (any color), tops cut off and cores removed
  • 1 package Morningstar Farms Chipotle Black Bean Crumples, cooked according to package instructions
  • 3 cups cooked quinoa
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) freshly-shredded Pepper Jack cheese
  • 1 cup good-quality salsa (I used a salsa verde with corn)
  • optional toppings: chopped fresh cilantro, diced avocado, extra cheese

Directions:

 

 

 

 

 

 

In a large mixing bowl, stir together the cooked black bean crumbles, cooked quinoa, 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese and salsa until combined.  Spoon the mixture evenly into the cavities of the six bell peppers.  Sprinkle the tops with the remaining 1/2 cup shredded cheese.

Bake uncovered for about 25-30 minutes, or until the peppers are cooked and soft and the cheese is all melted.  Serve immediately, topped with optional toppings if desired.

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipe/250549/roast-chicken-sweet-potatoes/

This delicious chicken recipe doesn't need a lot of ingredients but packs in a lot of flavors. Sweet potatoes are a great source of fiber, iron, and calcium, and also have beta-carotene, which is an antioxidant!

Ingredients

    • 2 tablespoons whole-grain or Dijon mustard
    • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme or 2 teaspoons dried
    • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
    • ½ teaspoon salt, divided
    • ½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper, divided
    • 1½-2 pounds bone-in chicken thighs, skin removed
    • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
    • 1 large red onion, cut into 1-inch wedges

Directions

  • 1 Position rack in lower third of oven; preheat to 450°F. Place a large rimmed baking sheet in the oven to preheat.
  • 2 Combine mustard, thyme, 1 tablespoon oil and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper in a small bowl; spread the mixture evenly on chicken.
  • 3 Toss sweet potatoes and onion in a bowl with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Carefully remove the baking sheet from the oven and spread the vegetables on it. Place the chicken on top of the vegetables.
  • 4 Return the pan to the oven and roast, stirring the vegetables once halfway through, until the vegetables are tender and beginning to brown and an instant-read thermometer inserted into a chicken thigh registers 165°F, 30 to 35 minutes.
  • Cut Down on Dishes: A rimmed baking sheet is great for everything from roasting to catching accidental drips and spills. For effortless cleanup and to keep your baking sheets in tip-top shape, line them with a layer of foil before each use.

Heather’s Year: From Bypass to Non-Scale Victories!


Heather D 1 watermark

BeLiteWeight is so grateful to share the success of Heather, who was kind enough to give her experience with us after having bypass surgery one year ago. You are amazing Heather!

There is so much I could say that has happened in a year since my surgery! So much good! If numbers are what you need to hear, my HW was 466, my weight on surgery day was 458 and as of a couple days ago my current weight is 235!! And I feel aaaawwweeesooome! However, it's the non-scale victories that have made me the most happy from day to day. I can now bend over without feeling like my airways are cut off. I can now sit in any adult sized chair without being crammed painfully at my hips. I can comfortably squeeze through passages without having to turn sideways. I can also go to festivals, events without worrying if they will have that rocking teeshirt in my size! One more victory, in my health journey family and friends have also been motivated for taking their own, it's become a team sport. We have my mother planking at 64!

Heather D 3 watermark

Hard ships?  The surgery doesnt account for my decision making, however it was a valuable tool in relearning food and my body. Now that my weightloss has slowed down due to muscle gain, it's a fine tuning process. I'm always excited for the next challenge. I did my first 5K in April and even though it was soo hard, the whole time I was blown away by my drive and ability to keep moving, keep smiling. My body felt like a powerhouse! Loose skin? Yes, this is a reality, one I expected– does it stop me? No! The way I see it, I will tighten as much as I can, and once I can no longer do so then it's to considering removal surgery. As far as worrying about the opinions of others? We all can get insecure at times, but this isnt even my final form! If a person can not celebrate my body's progress and its resulting look now, then I don't feel they should get access to once I've reached my desired shape! sorry I am a saucy southern gal! 
 
Thank you everyone at BeLite for your help, encouragement, and just passion for helping others feel this good! Keep on dreaming and hoping and doing what you can, you will get there!! 
Thank you so much, Heather! There is nothing better than hearing about your incredible achievement!

Second Chance at Life: Nicole’s Gastric Sleeve


gastricsleeve_6months_nicoleswm

Just over seven months ago one of our patients Nicole made the life changing decision to undergo bariatric weight loss surgery. She could not be more happy and we could not be more proud! This post contains her before and after photo, a link to her testimonial page, and a short little paragraph from Nicole herself. Keep up the great work you look amazing Nicole!

 

"It has been almost 7 months since I had the gastric sleeve done in mexico at Star medical hospital .  I set out on this journey on April the 22nd. I was nervous and excited all at the same time. I had several friends who had gone before me so I knew a little bit about what to expect. I must say that the doctors and nurses all exceeded my expectations, and did a woderful job. I am happy to report that I have lost a total of 59 pounds since I had the surgery .  I feel amazing, and from all the comments I get from people I must look amazing. I went from wearing a size 18/20 to a 9/10. It is a good feeling to be able to walk into a regular store and pick something off the rack and know you can fit it, and not have to try it on first. I am thankful for this second chance at life and I will never take it for granted again. thank you for all your help"

Potential Trigger Foods After Weight Loss Surgery


triggerfoods

After having weight loss surgery the digestive system of the body is altered and its response to the same food you have always eaten may change. Although each surgery is unique, and each body responds to different foods in their own way, these are the certain foods groups that BeLiteWeight recommends caution. Feel free to try each of them out and test them, but be careful! Don't eat too much or too fast, and always remember to chew thoroughly! 

 

bad food after weight loss surgery vsg bariatric bypass gastric band lap sleeve mini bypass vsg apple rice bread pasta chicken liquid calories ice cream 1. Bread

Bread can expand when in contact with different liquids and chemicals in your stomache. You may want to forgo the bread basket when eating out. Save room for your meal! 

 

bad  food after weight loss surgery vsg bariatric bypass gastric band lap sleeve mini bypass vsg  apple rice bread pasta chicken liquid calories ice cream 2. Apple Skins

Apple skins are hard to fully chew potentially causing problems with the stomaches digestion and issues smoothly going down.

 

bad food after weight loss surgery vsg bariatric bypass gastric band lap sleeve mini bypass vsg apple rice bread pasta chicken liquid calories ice cream 3. Chicken

It is very easy for chicken to be too dry! Make sure your chicken is very moist, maybe with a sauce, and be sure to be chew it thoroughly. 

 

bad  food after weight loss surgery vsg bariatric bypass gastric band lap sleeve mini bypass vsg  apple rice bread pasta chicken liquid calories ice cream 4. Pasta

As with bread,  pasta can easily absorb liquids and expand. It is also easy to take too big of a bite which can cause the uncomfortable "stuck" feeling. 

 

bad  food after weight loss surgery vsg bariatric bypass gastric band lap sleeve mini bypass vsg  apple rice bread pasta chicken liquid calories ice cream 5. Liquid Calories & Ice Cream

These are the worst possible food after weight loss surgery! Sugary liquids sneak their way down to your stomache without much discomfort and quickly start packing on weight!

 

bad  food after weight loss surgery vsg bariatric bypass gastric band lap sleeve mini bypass vsg  apple rice bread pasta chicken liquid calories ice cream 6. Rice

Much like bread and pasta rice can expand a lot. Just be careful and don't eat too much or too fast!

 

Many of these foods are high in carbohydrates which takes up room in your stomache causing you to not be able to eat the protein rich foods that you need for your hair, muscles, and bodily functions. Focus on your protein first and then just a couple of bites of carbs.
