I’m Brooke, a dietitian with Woman’s Hospital. Today’s recipe can be enjoyed by everyone; however, it was modified to meet the unique needs of someone who has undergone weight loss surgery. It is lower in carbohydrates and fat than the traditional version, and it also contains a lean source of protein.

Did you know about our weight loss surgery support group? Please join us at our monthly support group at Woman’s. This month’s support group will be held on Wednesday, May 11 in Woman’s Hospital conference room 4 from 6:00 – 7:30 PM. We will discuss negative self-talk and making a positive change followed by open group discussion.

Enjoy the recipe and we hope to see you at the support group.
