The Sweeter Side Of Hot Off The Iron

Gastric Bypass Diet Certainly Can Include Dessert

Sugar free baking and candies for dietary restrictions

Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice, is that what we are made of?

Welcome to Meggie’s Incredible Edibles Website. My goal is to reach anyone who has a dietary restriction and a need to specifically reduce the amount of refined sugar in their diets because they have had Gastric Bypass surgery or are Diabetic. I want to help you learn how to include desserts again in your Gastric Bypass diet. Also for all those people that have made a health decision to consciously reduce white and brown sugar, corn and maple syrup, molasses and honey in their diet.

I will share my own journey with you as you explore delicious desserts and candies that are made with Splenda.

As a child, a sugar filled diet wasn’t the standard in my home. I never had sugared breakfast cereals, unlimited candy at my fingertips nor was I allowed to do the hundred yard dash to the ice cream truck as it blasted down the street.

However, I had a “baking” family that showed their love in the way of homemade treats. Better than your run-of-the-mill chocolate chip cookie, my taste buds danced with such delectables as Coconut Gooies, Chewy Noels, Frosted Creams, Lemon and Butterscotch Meringue Pies. Years of consuming unlimited amounts of sugar and un-healthy eating habits lead to my heath declining. I could no longer support the “addiction” however, life as I knew it would change for me and those once cherished “gingerbread moments” would now become “sugar free”.

On April 21, 2003, I underwent a Roux- n -Y Gastric Bypass. After three years of deliberation and one year of medical clearances, I had the lifesaving procedure that would change the amount and type of foods I’d consume the rest of my life. From that day forward I have learned to be very compliant in not eating those refined sugars as mentioned. I have learned how to be able to enjoy desserts in my gastric bypass diet.

Instead I have learned to convert all the family cherished recipes in all the glorious sweet goodness by using sugar alternatives specifically Splenda. Never again do you have to feel “left out” when the dessert tray passes. I will share the successes of cooking and baking with Splenda.

So, stay tuned as I prepare to teach my tricks and my new found trade and passion in making candy that is “legal” If you are one that has those special dietary needs and a never ending “sweet tooth” then return here often for tips, recipes, encouragement and more. I’ll help you learn safe eating with your gastric bypass diet. I’ll be baking and creating candies that are my latest in sugar restricted alternatives.

  6. The cost of gastric bypass surgery is quite high and if you don’ have at least $20000 to spare for the surgery, I suggest you look for other means to lose the excess weight. If your insurance company can cover the cost of gastric bypass surgery, you are among the lucky few who are not too risky to be covered by an insurance company. There are some insurance companies that will not provide cover for gastric bypass procedures. For those who don’ have a health insurance cover, the cost of gastric bypass surgery can be an uphill task to cover. The payment really varies state to state. I would not recommend having it done in South America, too risky.

  7. Thank you for visiting my website. I am dedicated in helping anyone who is interested in making delicous desserts and candy treats with sugar alternative. I certainly can empathize with your frustration in the insurance approval process. My clearances before my gastric bypass surgery was a full year.
