Eggs, packed with protein and flavor

No matter where your bariatric journey may take you, we’re here to help you stay sunny side up by providing you with recipes and tips to help you achieve the most success after bariatric surgery. 

Even in the most challenging times, it’s nice to have some stability in life. If there is one thing we’ve learned whipping up bariatric-friendly meals is eggs are one of the foods that can remain in your diet after weight loss surgery and provide you with the nutrients you need post-op. 

Start your mornings by scrambling, folding, or pureeing your egg-travagant recipes while providing your body with the nutrients it needs for optimal success after weight loss surgery. According to the American Heart Association, eggs are a reliable, rich source of protein and vitamins. 

A large egg contains about 6 grams of protein and they are also a good source of other nutrients, including vitamin D (which aids bone health and the immune system) and choline (which helps metabolism and liver function, as well as fetal brain development). 

No matter where you are at in your weight loss diet, we have a wide archive of egg recipes for you to enjoy. If you plan on recreating one of these recipes, be sure to let us know on social media.

As always, we recommend our WLS Afterlife viewers follow their doctor’s dietary guidelines, regardless of our recipe instructions. WLS Afterlife is dedicated to presenting new bariatric-friendly meals weekly so you can continue to enjoy the life you’ve worked so hard to enjoy!  If we listed an ingredient you were told to avoid, write to us so we may provide you with plenty of other tasty alternatives.

Black Bean and Chicken Omelet
