Food Feuds: Regular versus KetoBrownies

Food Feuds: Regular versus KetoBrownies 0

Everyone knows what brownies are: irresistibly delicious, chewy, chocolatey delights that can do nothing but break diets with their calories and sugar. Right? Wrong. We beg to differ. Well, we agree with the taste part, but we present KetoBrownie Brownies as a brownie you can feel good about if you are on a ketogenic diet. In today’s food feud, we present regular brownies versus KetoBrownie Brownies.

Nutritional Stats

A regular brownie can have nearly 300 calories and close to 30 grams of sugar, while KetoBrownie Brownies have 200 to 220 calories and 0 grams of added sugars. KetoBrownie Brownies have three times the protein as regular brownies, and contain 13 to 16 grams of fat. You could even say that KetoBrownie Brownies are designed for weight loss since they are pro-keto with no more than 4 grams of net carbohydrates.

Taste and Ingredients

Regular brownies do taste good, we admit, but there is something to be said for the 2 flavors in which KetoBrownie Brownies are available. Choose from Chocolate Almond that can satisfy your chocolate craving with cocoa, sugar-free chocolate chips, and almond pieces, and Blondie, with the classic and satisfying brown sugar flavor of blond brownies.

While sugar is the main component of regular brownies, KetoBrownie Brownies are sweetened with natural and calorie-free monk fruit. They also have whey protein, almond butter, and prebiotic fiber for a healthier gut.

Convenience and Practicality

KetoBrownie Brownies come pre-wrapped in single-serving packages, so you can take them anywhere and store them until you need them. Sure, you can find regular brownies ready-to-eat from any bakery or grocery store, and they are even fairly easy to make yourself if you have the ingredients and the time to spare in mixing, baking, and cleaning. Still, there is a problem: portion control. It is far too easy to taste one, and nibble another, and keep sneaking bites until you have had far more than a single serving.

KetoBrownie Brownies are ideal as snacks and desserts, or you can try them for breakfast if you like a sweet start to your day. Try that with regular brownies, and you may find yourself with an early sugar high and a mid-morning energy crash along with sugar cravings.

Those are the facts for KetoBrownie Brownies and regular brownies. You can decide which has the edge as you try to lose weight. You may just need to try KetoBrownie Brownies before you make your final decision!

Weight Loss Duals: Peanut Butter and More

Weight Loss Duals: Peanut Butter and More 0

It is time for another weight loss dual. Today, regular peanut butter is going head to head with The BariatricPal Store’s lineup of Nuts ‘N More Spreads. We will compare them on a variety of nutrition, weight loss, and flavor characteristics, and you can decide the winner.

Protein

Nuts ‘N More Spreads have 11 grams of protein, which is over 50% more than regular peanut butter. Furthermore, the protein comes from an extra source, compared to regular peanut butter’s sole source of peanuts. You get some vegan protein from peanuts, and the rest from high-quality whey protein isolate. Whey protein is a fast-digesting protein so you get the benefits more quickly and weight loss surgery patients can expect better absorption rates compared to slower proteins.

Nuts ‘N More Spreads are all-natural and contain no trans fats. They even have omega-3 fats from flax meal.

Flavors and Uses

Regular peanut butter comes in peanut flavor. Sure, there are a few variations, such as honey peanut butter or a drizzle of chocolate. But if you want Cookie Dough, Birthday Cake, Toffee Peanut Butter Crunch, or Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Spread, you’d better opt for Nuts ‘N More Spreads. If those sound good, be sure to check out all of our flavors. You would not want to miss out!

Gift-Worthiness

Since it is that time of year, no analysis of a food product would be complete without considering its potential for gifting.

Nuts ‘N More Spreads tell a different story!

Each jar is special because of its unique flavor and nutritional profile. In addition, with so many flavors, you can create a personalized gift by selecting the favorite flavor(s) of your loved one. You can even make up a gift basket with other low-carb, high-protein treats. Do not be shy about giving yourself some Nuts ‘N More Spreads this season.
