BariatricPal Protein Soups: A Different Way to Sneak in Protein
Protein is at the top of the list when you’re trying to lose weight. It’s a filling weight nutrient and one that helps maintain lean muscle mass while you burn fat. Getting in enough protein is a priority after loss surgery and any time you’re trying to lose weight.
There are tons of protein shakes, bars, and powders available to help you meet your protein goals, especially if you’re on a liquid or pureed foods diet and can’t get enough protein from food. They come in great-tasting flavors like chocolate, vanilla, and everything in between. The problem is, most of these protein supplements are too sweet. What happens when you can’t face another sweet smoothie or bar?
BariatricPal Protein Soups are a savory alternative to sweet protein shakes. They’re high-protein, low-calorie, and low-carb. You can enjoy them on your pre-op and post-op liquid diets, on every post-op diet phase, and when you jump back on the bandwagon to lose weight after falling off track.
High-Protein, Low-Calorie Warming Goodness
The line-up of BariatricPal can help prevent boredom with your protein options. It includes:
Each satisfying bowl has 15 grams of protein and only 70 to 90 calories! That leaves plenty of wiggle room in your diet.
An Instant Meal or Snack…
BariatricPal Protein Soups come in boxes of 7 single serving packets. That means you can store them in your kitchen at home or even leave a couple of packets in your desk drawer at work. Just add 6 to 8 ounces of hot water, and your meal or snack is ready to warm you and nourish you! It’s a delicious option on its own.
…Or Part of a Satisfying Meal
You can also use your soup as part of a meal by adding a few more ingredients. Here are some ideas for adding nutrients and making your meal more filling while still keeping your calories in check.
-Have an open-faced grilled cheese sandwich with your tomato soup by toasting 1 slice fat-free cheese on 1 slice of whole grain bread or ½ whole grain English muffin.
-Add cooked spaghetti squash or low-carb spaghetti noodles to chicken and pasta soup.
-Make your tomato soup with fat-free milk or unsweetened soymilk for creaminess and extra protein.
-Add vegetables to beef bouillon or chicken with noodles soup.
-Add chunks of lean beef to beef bouillon or chicken breast to chicken soup.
