Summer Snacking Is Back
Last summer saw millions of Americans staying in their homes due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This year, most of the country can say that summer is back! With it comes the need for easy, healthy snacks that you can take anywhere. The BariatricPal Store has you covered. We have great-tasting, low-carb, high-protein snacks that can go with you as you get back to something resembling normal life.
Snacks for Work
Going back to work can be helpful because it can get you away from the fridge at home, but it can lead to some sticky situations if there are temptations around or if you find yourself without nutritious snacks to depend on. You can keep a few low-carb snacks in your desk to turn to when you are hungry or if you need a healthier alternative to help you say no to something sugary or fatty that another coworker offers you.
- Protein Bars in Chocolate, Cinnamon, Lemon, Banana Bread, Mocha, Cookie Dough, and so many more
- Sugar-Free Peanut Butter Cups and other Chocolates
- Protein Hot Drinks such as Hot Chocolate, Mocha, and Cappuccino
Snacks for the Beach
When you go out to the beach with friends or family, you are best off packing your own snacks. Otherwise, you may end up choosing between going to a hot dog stand or going hungry. Your picnic basket can include plenty of low-carb, high-protein choices, such as:
- Sandwiches, Zero Carb Protein Bread, or Keto Wraps, with Nut Butter or Peanut Butter spreads and Calorie-Free Fruit Spread
- Cauliflower Crackers with low-fat cream cheese
- Protein Pudding in flavors including Chocolate, Caramel, Vanilla, and Cheesecake
- Egg or tuna salad with Calorie-Free Mayo or Honey Mustard
Snacks for Family Outings
Are you going on a road trip? Does taking a “simple” trip to a mall or store with the family sometimes feel like you are going on a road trip? You do not want to get caught on a longer-than-expected outing with no snacks around. Without planning, you might find yourself starving with no other options than a slice of pizza or cinnamon roll from a food court!
Some family-friendly snacks to put in the car taste great for you and your kids, and are low in sugar to keep you on your diet. Examples include:
Many of these snacks are shelf-stable and you can keep them in the trunk so they are always handy if you need them.
Protein Shakes and Smoothies
Fruit smoothies in the summertime can be refreshing treats, but they can be terrifyingly high in sugar. If your friends or family tend to choose them or you are tempted by them, you might want to turn to Protein Smoothies instead. They are free from added sugars, are high in protein and low in carbs, and come in delicious flavors such as Aloha Mango, Strawberry Banana, and Pineapple Orange.
This summer can be wonderful and exciting after the restrictions of last summer, and getting out can be great for weight loss, too. Just be sure to arm yourself with high-protein, healthy snacks, and you can find yourself getting back on track towards your health and weight loss goals!
