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.
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 During March Madness 0
How many March Madness games are you planning to watch? What will you eat during them? You might regret it if you do not think about it ahead of time, but you can come out on top if you plan ahead. The BariatricPal Store has a few ideas for your hoops viewing parties so you can enjoy great food and stay healthy.
Mac and Cheese
Serve a pot of mac and cheese, and your guests will love you forever. Make it with low-carb noodles, and they will never know it is healthy. NutriNoodles Shirataki Pasta has no carbs and almost no calories. Make an extra cheesy, but healthy, version of macaroni and cheese with your choice of ingredients such as cream cheese, cheddar cheese, parmesan cheese, or your other favorites. Top with Pork Panko for a crunchy topping without carbs!
Chips and Dip
Admit it: a party is incomplete without chips and dip. That does not mean you need to eat starchy, fat-laden snacks at your party. Rather, try low-carb Protein Chips and Pretzels with healthier dips, such as salsa, guacamole, and hummus. You will skip most of the carbs and artery-clogging fats while chowing down with your friends.
Faux “Fried” Foods
Make your party the talk of the town with “fried” friends. Use Pork Rind Panko instead of high-carb breadcrumbs, then bake instead of fry your great foods. Try avocado sticks, zucchini fries, baked chicken, and panko mushrooms for hot apps to pass. Your friends, your taste buds, and your waistline will all thank you.
They may not be mandatory, but brownies can make a party seem perfect. Try Low-Carb Brownies with only 1 net carb each if you want to skip the guilt while you indulge. They have 5 grams of filling fiber, including prebiotic fiber. You can also try any of our Protein Cookies or bake your own goods with any of our Baking Mixes.
March Madness and other parties deserve a full selection of great-tasting foods, and there is no need for these parties to expand your waistline. Check The BariatricPal Store for low-carb, high-protein, great-tasting choices that you can serve to a crowd or keep for yourself.
