Cookbook Review & a Discount For You!

When I first learned about Jean McMillan's unique cookbook that was just for Bandsters, I had to get my hands on it.  Of course, she's a bandster herself (banded: September 2007 and will be converting to the sleeve tomorrow!)

OK, so I eventually read all 384 pages of Bandwagon Cookery.  Whew! It took me awhile.

Someone should invent 30 hour days so I can get everything this girly needs to get done in one day.  But I guess that's a post for another day.
So? What did I think of this cookbook?


Let me start with the intro/back story that Jean shares in the beginning of the book.  She reveals how she learned to cook when she was young.  I don't want to give away all the juicy details, but here's one word: Scotland.

Here are just a few of the ah-may-zing things that I like about this cookbook:
  • What's in a bandster's kitchen.  She even provides a shopping list too.
  • Problem foods for bandsters.
  • Most recipes have an adapted version on how to make it "puree" or "mushies".
  • Nutrition facts FOR A BANDSTER PORTION.  How awesome is that!  Usually cookbook nutrition facts are always for a normal serving, never small portions like we need.
  • The recipes could easily be used by RNYs, VSG'ers, and other weight loss surgery peeps.
OK, so where's that discount that I promised?

Scroll down to the bottom of this page.

You'll see a link and drop-down option that will take you over to Jean's PayPal site so you can get the Lap Band Gal fan discount!**
