    Congrats on your surgery! A great source of wls- friendly recipes and food guidance can be found at www.bariatriceating.com (it also has a great support group). That website has been my best friend thru my 5-year wls journey. Best wishes!

      You may want to look into Paleo meal sites, especially for desserts. The Paleo diet is a bit more stringent in that it excludes all grains, sugar, and dairy, but they are gluten free and low carb for the most part...

        Link's right. I had GF stuck in my head rather than low carb.

        I like elanaspantry.com as well. Another favourite is www.glutenfreegoddess.com. She has a wide variety of yummy and creative dishes. I've made a lot of them and can say they have been delicious.

          Take a look at the recipes here: http://www.elanaspantry.com/

          They are mostly sweet, but there are some savory. The recipes initially focused on almond flour, but have branched out to coconut flour as well. I believe she follows a paleo diet which is low carb and gluten free by nature. The sweets are probably out due to agave nectar, but you might find a place to start.
