Protein Sources That Aren't Shakes
Protein is critical for weight loss and health, and it’s even more important after weight loss surgery or on a low-carb diet. Protein Shakes come in a variety of flavors and can help you boost your intake, but what if you want something else?
The BariatricPal Store has great-tasting, low-carb snacks, entrees, and more to help you reach your weight loss and protein goals. Many of these options have 15 or more grams of protein per serving.
Protein Bars can be great choices as long as you choose wisely. Some bars are actually packed with sugar as well as protein, or they don’t taste that good. The BariatricPal Store has hundreds of low-carb, delicious bars in pretty much any flavor you can imagine. Some flavor profiles may include chocolate, peanut butter, caramel, lemon, oatmeal raisin, pretzel, cookie dough, almond, and way more.
What if you want a salty snack that is high in protein and low in carbs? Regular chips and pretzels just won’t do. Instead, Protein Chips, Krinkles, Puffs, Crisps, and Protein Pretzels may be your best bet. Flavors include Ranch, BBQ, Sour Cream and Onion, Sea Salt and Vinegar, Nacho Cheese, and other classic and far-out flavors. For a change, you can also try Cheese Crisps, Bean Snacks, and Meat Bars.
A high-protein breakfast can help keep you satisfied and energized in the morning. Lots of traditional breakfast foods are high in carbs and low in protein, but you can do better. Consider items such as Protein Pancakes, Protein Granola, Protein Oatmeal, and Protein Cereal in flavors such as Honey Nut, Chocolate, and Vanilla Almond. We even have Protein Donuts and Low-Carb Muffin Cups. Other choices include Protein Omelets and Protein Pancake Mixes.
It’s good practice to include a source of protein at each meal, and there’s no need to worry here. In just minutes, you can be sitting down to a low-carb, high-protein meal such as Chicken Enchilada Verde, Mac and Cheese, Beef Stew, and more.
We also have ingredients such as Protein Pasta and Protein Pizza Crust and Bread, so you can make your own high-protein, low-carb meal. Another option is to start with a Protein Soup and add vegetables to make it a satisfying meal.
Something sweet, low-carb, and high-protein is more than a pipe dream. It’s a reality! Protein Cookies, Protein Brownies, Protein Wafers, and Protein Cake are all available. Some are ready to eat, or you can opt for Protein Baking Mixes to make your own low-carb, oven-fresh cookies, brownies, and cakes. Protein Pudding can be ready in seconds when you mix it with water. Flavors range from Salted Caramel, Chocolate, and Vanilla to Cheesecake and Strawberry.
A shake may not be what you’re craving, but what if you love a cup of coffee in the morning or a cup of cocoa in the evening? They don’t have to be sugar-laden. Instead, Protein Hot Drinks at the BariatricPal Store are sugar-free and high in protein. Mocha, Vanilla Mocha, Hot Cocoa with Marshmallows, Cinnamon Hot Cocoa, and Regular Hot Cocoa are just a few possibilities.
When you need more protein, you don’t need to just settle for shakes. You have a lot of options. The BariatricPal Store is full of Protein Snacks, Protein Drinks, and Protein Entrees to help you hit your goals without going over your carb limit.
