Grab and Go…For When You Are in a Rush
No matter how carefully you plan, things happen. You get busy, an emergency comes up at work, your kids need you, and all of a sudden…you need to eat. Now! What can you do?
Unexpected events happen to all of us, but they do not need to throw you off your diet. Just make sure that the weight loss-friendly fare you need is closer at hand than the fast food burgers, vending machine candy bars, and convenience store nachos are sure to be. Here are some diet-saving ideas from The BariatricPal Store for those times when you are in a pinch.
Meal in a Packet
How are you going to get your breakfast when you dash out the door in the morning? How can you catch lunch when you are caught in an hours-long meeting? What happens to dinner when you are stuck late in the office? Hint: the correct answers are not “doughnut for breakfast,” “burrito for lunch,” and “pizza for dinner!”
A Meal Replacement can give you the dose of protein you need to tide you over for a few hours, along with the vitamins and minerals you need to stay nourished. You have a variety of low-carb, high-protein choices.
- Classic Chocolate, Strawberry, and Vanilla Shakes.
- Cream of Chicken and Cream of Tomato Soups.
- Fruit Drinks and Smoothies.
You only need to add water to the pre-packaged serving packet, so it is easy to get your meal no matter what your day throws at you.
Say you have no fridge to store food, and no interest in preparing anything. No worries! You have sweet and salty choices whether you need something just for yourself or you have to share with friends. Any of the following are good choices!
- Protein Potato Chips in flavors including classics such as Ranch.
- Protein Cookies with irresistible options such as Chocolate Chip and Oatmeal Raisin.
- Meat Snacks such as all-natural turkey jerky.
- Protein Bars, whether chocolatey, nutty, fruity, crispy, or creamy.
They are ready to eat, and need no refrigeration. Just grab what you need and go, or stick them in your car or desk drawer ahead of time for those last-minute snacks!
There is never any need to skip a meal or opt for a diet-destroying choice. Just make sure you have great-tasting choices around for whenever you need them!
