Bariatric Friendly Cinnamon Fall Treat

Bariatric Friendly Cinnamon Fall Treat 0

Are you a cinnamon fan? Now is the time of year where pumpkin and cinnamon flavors and scents are everywhere. If you are looking for treats to help you through this fall season, look no further!

BariatricPal’s Cinnamon Protein Baked Squares are so yummy! They are the perfect treat and you don’t have to feel guilty about eating it. For one square, there is 170 calories, 19g carbs, 5g sugar and 15g protein. Finding a treat with this low amount of sugar can be tricky, so I was super excited to find this bar.

The flavor is amazing. The cinnamon is very strong, which I love. The icing on top is my favorite and it gives the bar a nice, sweet flavor to it. I love that it isn’t too sweet and I especially love that the sugar is so low. Many times, when I find a treat that is lower in calories and fat, the sugar is insane and it gives me dumping syndrome. As a bariatric patient, it is crucial that you stay away from high sugar foods.

Another thing I like about these bars is that they can act as a breakfast as well. They resemble a coffee cake, which makes me so happy because coffee cakes are one of my favorite foods in the world.

If you are looking for a treat, or even something you could use as a breakfast, I highly recommend that you try these amazing cinnamon bars.\

Summer S’Mores for Weight Loss

Summer S’Mores for Weight Loss 0

S’mores may be the quintessential summer treat. It may bring up memories of camping and campfires, long and lazy summer days without school, and carefree time spent with your friends without worrying about what you ate. But now? We say…back to s’mores!

S’mores are high in sugar and calories, hardly making them a good weight loss choice. But that is only if you get the wrong ones. Summer is moving on, and it is about time to make sure you get your seasonal s’mores fix. The BariatricPal Store has top picks – no fire needed.

Why the Caution?

A classic s’more is the opposite of a dieter’s dream. The traditional treat has 280 calories, 31 grams of sugar, and 14 grams of fat. (Those stats are true if you stop at a single s’more). If you are not a camper and tend to get your chocolatey marshmallow graham cracker fix from other treats, consider that:

  • S’mores ice cream has 560 calories per cup.
  • A s’mores cookie has 10 grams of fat.
  • A s’mores milkshake has over 100 grams of sugar.

BariatricPal S’Mores Protein Bars

BariatricPal S’Mores Protein Bars have the chocolate and marshmallow flavors that you demand in s’mores, but without the scary nutritional stats. They have a dark chocolate cookie core layered with gooey marshmallow topping and surrounding with a creamy dark chocolate coating.

You can use them to curb cravings any time, whether it be a late-night snack or a mid-day pick-me-up. With 17 essential vitamins and minerals, BariatricPal S’Mores Protein Bars can also be a nutrient-rich meal replacement. It sure beats running into your nearest scoop shop for a chocolate marshmallow diet disaster.

BariatricPal S’Mores Protein Bars have:

  • 160 calories
  • 15 grams of protein
  • 5 grams of fiber
  • Real cocoa

They come in boxes of 7 individually-wrapped bars.

Flapjacked S’Mores Mighty Muffins

Any savvy dieter knows that muffins are not the healthy breakfast choice that we all wish they were. A good-sized chocolate muffin can easily have over 500 calories and 50 grams of sugar. Who needs it? Certainly not you, when you can opt for Flapjacked S’Mores Mighty Muffins instead.

Each sweet bite has milk chocolate and marshmallow bits. You can make Flapjacked S’Mores Mighty Muffins in the microwave just by adding water to the muffin cup. With such great taste and convenience, there is no reason to dive into the nearest coffee shop or bakery for a fresh-tasting, delicious breakfast.

Flapjacked S’Mores Mighty Muffins have:

  • 210 calories
  • 20 grams of protein
  • 5 grams of fiber
  • Probiotics for a healthy gut.

Summer is slipping away, so act quickly to get the tastes of summer and hit your weight loss goals. You can do both with s’mores treats and more at The BariatricPal Store. Can’t wait to see you there!

Independence Day Party Snacks

Independence Day Party Snacks 0

For July 4, a casual cookout or picnic is the norm, and that can mean tons of snacks. Chips, cookies, and other grab-and-go snacks can be disastrous if you have sticky fingers and a case of the munchies, but they do not have to be. Your best defense may be to arm yourself with alternative choices: think high-protein, low-sugar, and just as delicious. The BariatricPal Store has what you need for the big day.

Chips and Other Crunchies

Hydrogenated oils, refined starches, and salt: yum! At least, that is what you get with regular potato chips. You can do better. Protein Chips at The Bariatric Pal Store come in all-American flavors such as Ranch, Barbeque, and Pizza, but without the all-American dose of trans fat and refined starches. Instead, count on a dose of protein and fiber.

Meat and Cheese

Salty snacks can be hearty and satisfying, and The BariatricPal Store offers the most bang for your snacking buck. Meat Snacks come in all-natural varieties and are made with meats from turkey and beef to venison and elk, and in flavors from Original and Teriyaki to Sweet Chipotle and Buffalo Wing. Our Cheese Snacks are crunchy, low-carb treats made with the finest cheeses and herbs.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies are among the quintessential American foods, and a logical choice to celebrate the country’s Independence Day. Unfortunately, they may be a reason why Americans are among the most overweight people in the world. Instead of the sugary version, choose low-sugar, Protein Chocolate Chip Cookies with real cocoa, vanilla, and eggs. They have up to 15 grams of protein per cookie so you can feel satisfied without a sugar high.

Creamy, Cold, and Sweet

Nope, not ice cream. That is, not unless you are looking for an extra few hundred calories and several grams of fat. Instead, opt for Protein Pudding with up to 15 grams of protein and a minimum of fat and sugar. Vanilla, Chocolate, and Strawberry are swaps for the classic ice cream flavors, but you can easily go for more decadent Chocolate Salted Caramel, Hazelnut Cocoa Cream, or Lemon Raspberry. Just mix a single-serving packet with water and chill it until it is time to eat. Bonus: It’ll keep longer in a cooler than ice cream will!

This July 4 and for the rest of the summer, get your snacking game on! You will get extra flavor and protein while staying interested in your weight loss diet, so what is not to love?
