Foil pack dinners are so great!

As I post this, it’s summertime. The window is open. The sun is out longer each day. The grill is working double time for all our meals.

I’ve used foil packs for chicken, fish and even beef. This is perfect for weight-loss surgery patients because your meats and veggies are all in one place! Very easy to get together and even easier to clean up. Try this Jalapeño and Lime Steak Foil Pack or this Salmon Foil Pack with Tomatoes and Onions.

This foil pack is a little higher carb than ones I’ve shared in the past. Barbecue sauce can bring in sugar so read your label closely and try to keep it under 8 grams of sugar. Pineapple is a fruit so of course it also has sugar! Avoid having any other fruits the day you make this meal and even skip the protein bar and choose cheese or deli meat instead. This will keep your overall carbs for the day lower. …

  1. I think its awful to mislead people who have WLS into thinking they could get recipes off of Pinterest, only to be blocked from the content, because a membership purchase is required.

    When i share information on WLS or Celiac, i certainly dont ask for money to line my own pockets to do it. I truly desire to help people.

    Thanks for the membership offer, but no thanks…

  2. Hi Margie,

    I agree with you and apologize for your experience. As a rule, I try my very best to not pin anything that is locked content but I admit, with over 500 recipes some of them slip through the cracks. I also can’t control what others are pinning.

    I have unlocked the recipe you commented on indefinitely.

    There are hundreds of free recipes on the site and those are the ones without a pink border around them. You’ll also notice we don’t use any advertising on the site so you won’t have pop ups or banners get in your way, one of the many reasons we do membership is to avoid using advertising.

    Again I am sorry for your bad experience and I do thank you for taking the moment to comment your frustrations so I could have the chance to fix it!
