No matter who you are, chances are something in your life makes you busy- whether that’s kids, work, running a business, etc- sometimes you just need an easy meal (that’s still within your bariatric diet) so you can focus on what’s important while maintaining your post-op healthy lifestyle.

The most prepping you’ll do in this entire bariatric recipe is making the marinade for the pork- we didn’t soak the meat in the marinade, but it’s suggested to let it soak for at least an hour or 2 for even more flavor. So, if you are working on your bariatric meal plan and set aside time for your bariatric meal prep, you can start this recipe and let it marinade while you get to work on meal prep and packing for the week.

Aside from the marinade, all you have to do is cut the ingredients, put them on a skewer and pop them in the air fryer! Easy weight loss recipe, right?

We really enjoyed making this Pork Kebab (pork kebob) recipe, and y’all… the flavor does not lack either! After bariatric surgery, it can be difficult to find fooda with lots of flavor that don’t include lots of sugar, msg, or other unhealthy ingredients. Luckily with these air fryer pork kebabs, the flavor from the mango, meat and bell peppers melt in your mouth for the perfect burst of savory & slight sweetness (from the mango).
