Holiday Gift Guide: Keto Snacks for Carb Lovers
How good will you feel this year if you can give that special someone a gift that will change their life? We may have just the thing if your special someone is or will be a bariatric surgery patient, is following a keto or low-carbohydrate diet, or is anyone else who is determined to lose weight.
So many delicious foods are banned from keto and other weight loss diets because of their carb content, but that does not need to be the case. This year, why not give them the gift they really want: their favorite foods in a keto-friendly, low-carb package? The following foods are low-carb or carb-free and absolutely satisfying.
Nothinging beats cereal for breakfast, and there’s no problem eating cereal if it is low-carb. Type “keto” in the store’s search engine and be amazed at all the types of cereal that are keto-friendly at our store. Hot cereal varieties include Plain, Maple Brown Sugar, Peaches and Cream, and Apple Cinnamon. There is also granola, such as Chocolate Protein Granola, Peanut Butter Crunch Granola, and Blueberry Cinnamon Keto Granola, as well as cereal such as Cinnamon Toast and Fruity Rubbles. For snack or breakfast, those treats can put a smile on anyone’s face.
Pasta and Rice
Forbidden no longer, pasta and rice can be part of a keto diet when they are low in carbs. Keto-Friendly Low-Carb Pasta and Riced Vegetables (Broccoli and Cauliflower) make the dream possible. They are nearly free from carbs and may have additional benefits, such as being high in fiber.
They can be used instead of pasta and rice in favorite recipes, such as with pasta sauce, in casseroles with chicken or tuna, vegetables, and cheese, or in cold salads. This may be a gift to be cherished!
Bread may be known as Public Enemy Number One in dieting, but Zero-Carb Bread is another story entirely. High in protein and free from net carbs, Zero-Carb Bread comes in so many varieties that you can be sure to find a few that will be perfect as gifts. Sliced Bread, Bagels, Pizza Crust, Hamburger Buns, and Hot Dog Buns are all available. From cream cheese on bagels and peanut butter or turkey and cheese sandwiches, to hamburgers, hot dogs, and pepperoni pizza, it can seem like anything is possible with Zero-Carb Bread.
One of the downsides of being on a keto or low-carb diet is that it can feel limiting in the kitchen, but Keto Baking Mixes can turn that around quickly. The BariatricPal Store has keto-friendly Brownie Mix, all manner of Pancake Mixes, and Muffin Mix in Banana Caramel and Orange Almond.
Most just need simple additions such as eggs and/or your choice of fat, such as butter, coconut oil, or another oil. Your friend can express her creativity by adding her choice of berries, coconut, or nuts.
Giving the right gift is one of the most satisfying feelings in the world. The BariatricPal Store makes it easy to give a gift that can light up their face, and maybe their entire holiday season.
