Cinco de Mayo – Weight Loss Treasure!

Cinco de Mayo – Weight Loss Treasure!

May 04, 2018 Alex Brecher

Happy Cinco de Mayo! It’s officially the celebration of the Mexican victory at the Battle of Puebla in 1862, but the day has taken on a life of its own. No problem if you are not Mexican – it’s a chance to enjoy your favorite Mexican-inspired flavors no matter your background. And, no problem if you’re losing weight – The BariatricPal Store has what you need to keep losing weight while you get the flavors you love. So, welcome to the fiesta!

Chips and Salsa

Authentic or not…who cares? The party starts with chips and salsa – but not that kind of chips! Instead of starchy, fried tortilla chips, try Protes Spicy Chili Lime Protein Chips! Made with pea protein isolate to get 15 grams of protein, the entire bag has 120 calories and no saturated or trans fat.

If you’re loving the healthy start to your Cinco de Mayo, take your health kick a step further with a smart dip. Red, green, bean, and corn salsas are all good choices, and you can try making your own Protein Salsa with 20 grams of protein! It has fresh tomatoes, onion, and peppers, too, so it’s packed with nutrients.

Mexican Salad

With 600 or more calories apiece, a taco salad just isn’t worth it. But if you’re craving crisp lettuce mixed with Mexican flavors, try our Mexican Salad with beef or Mexican Chicken Salad. They’re packed with protein, low in carbs, and easy to make – oh, and absolutely delicious! Feel free to top them with salsa, non-fat sour cream or cheddar cheese, or avocado slices.

Sweet Satisfaction

Never feel deprived when you have the option of selecting high-protein sweet treats that fit into your weight loss plan. A fried churro may be out of reach, but what about Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel Logs instead? The entire bag has 140 calories, 12 grams of protein, and 5 grams of fiber, plus the same cinnamon spiciness you look for in a churro.

Or, you could opt for Dulce de Leche Protein Pudding next time someone offers you the caramelized goodness of tres leches cake. You will still get creamy sweetness, but without the 20 or more grams of sugar. Instead, add water to the mix and stir to get a dessert with 90 calories, 3 grams of sugar, and 15 grams of protein.

The nice thing about losing weight is that it’s so…delicious!  At least, it is when you turn to The BariatricPal Store for inspiration. Feliz Cinco de Mayo!
