New Microwavable Single Serve Protein Entrees
What happens when you need a meal fast? It could be after work when it is getting late in the day or you have family to take care of. Or it might be at lunch when you are in the middle of work, household, or other obligations. Do you go for takeout or delivery, or start wrestling with whatever boxed, carb-laden meal starter is in your pantry?
There’s no need to lower your standards for health or taste just because you are in a hurry. You can lose weight and eat great with BariatricPal’s new Microwavable Single Serve Protein Entrees.
They’re easy to store since they’re shelf-stable. No refrigeration is needed. To prepare your instant Protein Entree, just peel back the seal and microwave it for 1 to 2 minutes, depending on the strength of your microwave. Stir, continue heating, and then let stand for 1 to 2 minutes before serving. They can be great on their own, or you can add vegetables or a side salad to make your meal bigger.
