Dear Friends & Family of LapSF and the Surgical Weight Loss Center of Hawaii,

Happy Mother's Day to all our patients with children, or possibly even grand children! With Mother's Day arriving and Memorial Day approaching it seems as if our weekends will be centered around celebrations, which for some may happen to be centered around food. We recommend making an effort to plan what you will be eating prior to going to a party, or family gathering. Pack options with you at all times so that if they do not have a dish that fits your diet, you are prepared for an alternative. This will prevent you from being tempted into overeating, or consuming refined carbohydrates that are typically served at parties such as cake and cookies.

May's E-Store Special:

Purchase 5 boxes of Healthwise Soups and Get 1 Free!


1 packet: 70 calories, 15 gm protein, and 2 gm carbs


Flavors: beef bouillon, chicken bouillon, cream of chicken, and tomato


These soups are great for those who like savory protein supplements versus sweet. Instead of bringing a cold protein drink to work, try one of these soups for a comforting meal that will also help you meet your protein goal. Conventional soups have barely any protein at all, so this make for a great alternative to the normal canned soup.


Gabriella's Bari-Tasty Recipe: Wasabi Sauce



-1/2 cup Greek yogurt (0% Non-fat)


-1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves


-3 tablespoons fresh lime juice

  2. Serving size: ~1/2 Tbsp

Pair with seared tuna or a salmon burger for a tasty meal!
