  1. @Marianne Taylor you’re in a great place! All the recipes on here are bariatric friendly and the great majority are for 4 servings. Many recipes are gluten free by nature of being high protein, low carb recipes. Not all of them are marked as gluten free. You would just double check ingredients that might sneak gluten in them but because I do use breads or pastas there is a low risk of gluten ingredients. https://www.bariatricfoodcoach.com/recipe-grid/
