Buffalo Chicken Skillet - Low Carb Bariatric Meal


My baby turned six weeks yesterday. WOAH! Six weeks just went by?! When?? How did that happen?? Phew! It’s been the most amazing whirlwind of my life. One that only other mothers can know about, right?

I’ve been excited to get back into the kitchen this past week. I had “eased in” a bit tossed pre-cooked chicken with bagged salad or heating pre-cooked chicken sausage with bell pepper strips. It worked like a charm to feed myself and my husband with fast, easy and healthy choices. You should try it! :)

Now I’m back with new creations. This recipe is just a simple but with a spin of “I’ve never done this before.” My favorite!

For bariatric surgery patients, be sure to take bites VERY small. The size of a peanut! Chew your bite well. Pause in between your bites, and stop at the first sign of fullness. No matter how much that portion may be. You want to fill up, but not overfill…and only you can know how much food that is!
