Pretzels Morning, Noon, and Night
It’s National Pretzel Day. That means it’s a day to eat this favorite treat all day. Of course, any day is a day for great taste and weight loss at The BariatricPal Store. Put pretzels together with weight loss all day, and this is what you might come up with.
Breakfast: Peanut Pretzel Protein Bar
No time in the morning? No problem! Grab a Peanut Pretzel Protein Bar on your way out the door, and you are set with 13 grams protein to keep hunger down during the morning. The bar is a chewy, crunchy mixture of soy protein crisps, peanuts, and pretzel pieces.
It can be a perfect small breakfast on its own, with 160 calories, or you can pair it with a favorite. Spread non-fat cream cheese on it or dip it in fat-free cottage cheese or yogurt, or have it with another fast food – a whole piece of fruit, of course!
Lunch: Pretzels and Soup
A hot lunch may seem like an out-of-reach luxury, but it is not, when you choose Protein Soup with up to 15 grams of protein and as little as 70 calories. Ready in minutes with just water, you can choose from favorites such as Cream of Mushroom and Cream of Chicken, Chicken or Beef with Pasta, and Cream of Tomato. Top it with pieces of Protein Pretzels, and you’ll have an instant protein-packed lunch to love.
Snack: Honey Mustard Pretzels and Dip
Okay, they’re not technically pretzels, but Honey Mustard Double Bites have the crunch, tangy mustard, and sweet honey flavor that you love about pretzels. The biggest difference may be the protein – each bag has 10 grams of protein. Try them on their own, or dip them into creamy Greek yogurt.
Dinner: Pretzel Burger
Think about a soft pretzel sandwich that you might order at a bakery café. Reduce the calories and carbs, but keep the flavor, and that’s what you can expect when you make a pretzel burger using Carbalose Baking Mix. A regular soft pretzel has 30 to 70 grams of carbs, while this baking mix has only 2 grams of net carbs.
Make a patty out of lean ground turkey – mix in Italian seasoning and parmesan cheese if you wish – and spread your soft pretzel with mustard. Top your burger with lettuce, tomatoes, and pickles, or go gourmet with grilled eggplant or zucchini atop your burger.
Dessert: Vanilla Pudding with Cinnamon Pretzels
What delicious dessert has 27 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber, and only 220 calories? Cinnamon Sugar Protein Pretzel Logs dipped into Vanilla Protein Pudding! Finish your day with the relaxing treat you deserve: creamy vanilla pudding with crunchy pretzel sticks dusted with spicy cinnamon and sweet sugar. By the way, these pretzels go just fine on their own or with a cup of Protein Hot Cocoa.
However you love your pretzels, get your fill at The BariatricPal Store so you can celebrate National Pretzel Day guilt-free, and enjoy your pretzels every other day of the year!
