Looking for Gastric Bypass Recipes? Suggestions Welcome!

In summary, for those following a low-carb diet after gastric bypass surgery, some great options include baked or grilled protein like chicken, fish, or tofu, as well as non-starchy vegetables like broccoli, spinach, and zucchini. Vegetarian gastric bypass patients can enjoy options like roasted vegetable quinoa bowls, lentil and vegetable soups, and tofu stir-fries. Desserts can still be enjoyed in moderation, but it's important to choose healthier options such as sugar-free or low-sugar options. For busy weeknights, sheet pan meals, stir-fries, and slow cooker meals are quick and easy options.

I have a show scheduled for a group that has had gastric bypass surgery. They can't have flour, white rice or sugar (splenda ok). I would prefer Pampered Chef Recipes, but will take any suggestions.
Thank you :)
 
Maybe salads???You consultants really get out there!!! A whole group of people who has had gastric bypass surgery?? Wow!

Okay, seriously, I guess the Summer Cobb Salad, or the Touchdown Taco Dip would be good (oh, but they can't have flour..hmm, what would they dip..I don't think corn chips have flour, so maybe store bought chips..just thinking out loud here)... I have the salad recipe cards, maybe that would work??

If you don't have the salad recipes, send me a private email and I'll send them to ya... Good luck!!
 
Veggi QuichesI did a show for celiacs (wheat intolerant) and veggies earlier in the year. I did mini veg frittatas (like the mini veg quiches but without the pastry) in the mini-muffin pan. These were topped with a little Hoummus and a slice of black olive (sliced in egg slicer of course!) and a little sprig of parsley. Make sure you leave them in the mini-muffin pan for 5 mins before you try to get them out or they can break up.
Hope this helps.
