As the holiday season approaches, there is no doubt you want to get the perfect thing for everyone on your list...but what can you get for someone who is a bariatric surgery patient, or watching their weight, but who loves meat?
A gift card for a dinner out may be out of the question if you are looking for 100% contactless options, but there are still plenty of satisfying, perfectly seasoned choices. Better yet, they are ready to eat, so there is no need to limit them to friends who cook. The BariatricPal Store has a wide variety of meat snacks.
Why Meat Snacks?
Why would you choose meat snacks as a gift? There are so many reasons!
Nutrition: Nutrition needs to be the top priority after weight loss surgery, and meat snacks can be naturally rich in high-quality protein, as well as low in carbs or free from carbs. Meat, such as beef, chicken, and pork, is a source of nutrients that are required for proper metabolism and energy production, such as iron, vitamin B12, other B vitamins, and zinc.
Convenience: Meat snacks can go with you anywhere, for anytime snacking. You do not need to throw a steak on the grill or worry about refrigerating and storing a piece of chicken for a later snack time when you have a meat snack handy. They can be stashed in a drawer, purse, pantry, or car.
Taste: Many protein snacks are sweetened protein bars and protein shakes. They can be delicious, but they can become boring. The savory taste of meat bars can be welcome after a while, and the variety can make it easier to stick to the weight loss plan.
Epic Meat Bars
Epic Meat Bars and Epic Meat Bites are perfectly designed for low-carb snacking. Each bar or serving of bites has about 80 to 190 calories and 8 to 15 grams of protein. They are low in carbohydrates, and seasoned with natural ingredients such as pepper, ginger, currants, and apples. Varieties of meat include Beef, Chicken, Bacon, and Venison.
They even come in breakfast flavors, such as Chicken, Egg Yolks, and Apple, as well as Bacon and Egg Yolks. That leaves no excuse for skipping a healthy breakfast!
Moses Family Jerky brings the simple goodness of chewy, high-quality meat that is naturally lean and low-carb. Simply Snackin’ Protein Snacks mix it up in a gluten-free, grain-free blend that is somewhere between jerky and a meat bar. They have under 100 calories, at least 8 grams of protein, and are natural, paleo-friendly, and made from 100% grass-fed protein. Teriyaki Chicken Breast with Mangos, Beef with Cranberries and Blueberries, and Beef with Apples and Cherries are just a few flavors.
Pork Rinds and Clouds
If you wish there were a way to replace chips in the life of your favorite bariatric surgery patient, your wish has come true. Pork Rinds and Clouds are keto-friendly, carb-free crunchy snacks with natural flavors and an addictive taste.
We make gift-giving as easy as possible, with the right gifts for every bariatric surgery friend in your life, and a 100% contactless experience from shopping to delivery. This holiday season may be unprecedented, but you can still give a heartfelt gift to the ones you love.
