Winter is an easy time to eat the right foods. There is nothing more comforting than a nice hot bowl of soup. Here is one of our favourite recipes taken from the Knife, Fork and Band Cook book by Sally Johnston, this book is available from our practice and at “The Weightloss Shop” online store. This is a fantastic tool for people that have had ANY type of weightloss surgery. From bands to sleeves and has some yummy foods for all phases from fluid, to puree to soft foods.
