For all you spaghetti lovers out there, try this with a veggie kick!

Spaghetti Squash Alfredo a la Nik

2 yellow squash, diced
2 zucchini, diced
1 small onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 lb. chicken breasts, cubed
Yield of one spaghetti squash
½ c. skim milk
½ c. grated Parmesan cheese (you can get the shelf stuff but grating your own is so much better!)
Fresh ground pepper (to taste) and sea salt
½ a jar Alfredo sauce (I use Ragu reduced fat)
4 o 5 slices of Provolone cheese

Directions:
-Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
-Spray down a sautee pan with nonstick and cook chicken breast cubes thoroughly and transfer to a large mixing bowl.
-In the same pan, sautee both types of squash and onions until just tender. Add garlic and mix well. Transfer to same bowl as chicken.
-Turn burner down to low and add milk, scraping up the bits at the bottom of the pan. When the edges of the milk begin to bubble, add the Alfredo sauce, mix well and warm through.
-Add spaghetti squash to the large mixing bowl and mix chicken and veggies completely.
-Add parmesan cheese, salt and pepper and mix again.
-Add the Alfredo sauce and mix into the veggie mixture thoroughly. Transfer to a 13×9 casserole dish.
-Top with slices of provolone cheese and bake for 30 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly.

The United States FDA has approved the gastric balloon procedure — a breakthrough alternative to weight loss surgery that combines an intragastric procedure and behavior modification program to help overweight patients maintain long-term weight loss. The gastric balloon procedure is an ideal option for patients for who do not qualify for bariatric weight loss surgeries or cosmetic weight loss procedures. See if you qualify today!

For all of our seafood lovers! Take this recipe down and enjoy!

GRILLED PACIFIC COD WITH PEPPER STIR-FRY

Ingredients:
4 x 175g/6oz skinless wild Alaska Pacific cod fillets
finely grated zest and juice of 1 lime
6 spring onions/scallions
Frylight or other low-fat cooking spray
2 red and 2 yellow peppers/capsicums, deseeded and thinly sliced
125g/4oz mangetout or sugar snap peas, halved
1 large carrot, peeled and cut ito julienne strips

1. Preheat the grill/broiler. Cover the grill rack with foil and arrange the cod fillets on top. Sprinkle with the lime zest, lime juice and a few slices of the spring onion/scallions. Grill/broil for 6-8 minutes, until cooked (when cooked the flesh will be opaque and will flake easily).

Add the peppers/capsicums, remaining spring onions/scallions, mangetout or sugar snap peas and carrot. Stir-fry for 3-4 minutes. Add the beansprouts and stir-fry for a further 1-2 minutes.

Need a morning kickstarter? Take down this deliciously warm muffin recipe the whole family will enjoy!

Apple-Cinnamon Protein Muffins

Dry Ingredients:
1 c. oat flour
1/2 c. soy flour
1/2 c. vanilla protein powder of your choosing
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt

Wet Ingredients:
1 very large apple, grated
1 tsp. vanilla
Sweetener of your choice equivalent to 1.25 c. sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
2 large eggs, beaten
1/4 c. milk

Directions:
-Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
-If you have oat flour on hand, great. If not, it’s easy to make. Put a cup of quick oats in a blender and whiz until flour happens! Put that in a bowl and add the rest of the dry ingredients and then whisk them together.
-In another bowl combine your grated apple with the rest of the wet ingredients and stir to combine.
-Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix. It will seem as if there’s not enough wet stuff there but just keep mixing. It will all coat, I promise!
-After it’s all coated, it should be pretty thick. Add the milk and then stir. That loosens it up a little bit (it’ll be about the consistency of cooked oatmeal).
-Fill lined cupcake tins (fill them 3/4 of the way). This recipe yielded 16 regular sized muffins for me. You can also do mini-muffins. If you do, report back on how many you get! (Note: yes, they freeze beautifully, just wrap them tightly).
-Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a fork comes out clean (or in my case the fork came out with a crumb and not liquid). Allow to cool.

I had gastric sleeve and have lost about 60# so far and I am still losing weight. Dr. Stowers and his staff have been great. I have referred friends and will continue to do so. I just talked to one friend who just got clearance from his cardiologist and will be starting his paperwork tomorrow. It is life changing and anyone considering Bariatric surgery should go see Dr. Stowers. I am off of all blood pressure and diabetic medications and I am testing good. My knees are not hurting like they were either. My Orthopedic doctor is amazed that I haven't needed shots in my knees for quite a while.

If you want to lose weight permanently, then you need to see Dr. Stowers and his staff at My Bariatric Solutions. The entire team provide outstanding customer service with patient concern put at the top of the list. This is unlike any other doctor you will ever visit. No more feeling like you are being herded around and left to wait for endless hours. You will be seen promptly, have the opportunity to talk to everyone involved, and feel the compassion that everyone provides.

Dr. Stowers is great, and he has an amazing team backing him up. I was so pleased with every detail of my experience. I wouldn't change my decision to use My Bariatric Solutions for my weight loss journey for anything!

I could not have chosen a better Doctor. Dr. Stowers took out the time to answer all 32 of my questions and then gave me comments about my surgery that I didn't know to ask. His staff is awesome. Every time I called and email, they responded. The price was great. Based on my insurance rate, I saved over $3500.00 compared to other places. More than anything I was able to trust Dr. Stowers judgment and skills based on the informative information he provided and his experience.
