When I think of fall, the first ingredient that comes to mind is pumpkin! So what’s more appropriate for our October support group meeting than sharing some recipes for pumpkin-inspired dishes and our favorite comfort foods.

Skinny Pumpkin Breakfast Parfait

To start your day off in true autumn style, this skinny pumpkin breakfast parfait is a great way to get your protein in first thing in the morning! When choosing the granola, make sure it is a low-sugar granola. Also, cut back on the amount. Try 2 tablespoons of Bear Naked Original Cinnamon Granola. Most of the sugar found in this recipe is naturally occurring through the yogurt and pumpkin puree. Enjoy!


Pumpkin Spice Protein Shake

Looking for something healthy and delicious midday when you’re on the go? Packed with protein and rich with pumpkin flavor, this Pumpkin Spice Protein Shake makes for a great and quick breakfast or lunch.



With the weather changing and days getting cooler, we all want something delicious we can warm up with that is also great for our post-op diet. Here are some healthy chili recipes for those nights where you need just a bit more comfort!

Crock Pot Chicken Taco Chili



Slow Cooker Three Bean Turkey Chili



No Bake Pumpkin Swirl Cheesecake

Every once in a while, it’s fine to end a great fall day with a little treat!  Just remember to watch your portion and keep the piece small.



Join us at our next support group on Tuesday, November 21 when we will discuss ways to navigate the holidays!
