Protein Cake Bites at The BariatricPal Store 0

Everyone can use more cake, but not the pounds it packs on. Protein Cake Bites solve the dilemma, offering the taste and satisfaction of cake while you lose weight. These low-carb treats are so delicious you won’t be able to believe that they can possibly be okay on your diet.

The serving size is 3 great-tasting cakes. Each cake has a whipped protein center and a thick frosting surrounding it. You can count on them being free from aspartame and trans fats, but having them turns any day into what feels like a glorious cheat day.

Low-Sugar Protein Source

Each serving of Protein Cake Bites has 20 grams of protein, and no more than 3 grams of sugar. That is quite a deal when compared to, say, a slice of red velvet cake or cheesecake with 4 grams of protein and 20 or 30 grams of sugar. Protein Cake Bites get their protein from high-quality sources such as whey protein isolate, and they have bone-building calcium. Each serving has no more than 250 calories, making them ideal as a small meal, large snack, or filling dessert.

Favorite Flavors

Protein Cake Bites come in nine great-tasting flavors to satisfy every sweet tooth.

  • Peanut Butter Chocolate with a peanut butter center and chocolate frosting.
  • Berry Cheesecake with a berry-flavored center and a sweet cheesy coating.
  • Birthday Cake to make every day seem like your birthday.
  • Chocolate Dipped Cherry kind of like a truffle but without the sugar.
  • Chocolate Mint with the satisfaction of the chocolate candy, minus the guilt.
  • Red Velvet with decadent cake and creamy frosting and no guilt.
  • Fruity Cereal to bring back the tastes and carefree days of childhood.
  • Chocolate Frosted Donut with chocolate and more chocolate, but no trans fats.
  • Cookies and Cream dotted with black and white goodness, just like the cookies you love.

Try them all to find your favorite flavor! You can buy single flavors in single bars or boxes of 12, or try a Variety Pack with the first 8 flavors.  

Cake All Day

Why save cake for special occasions? Why save it for dessert? You can have your cake whenever you want it. Eat these ready-to-eat Protein Cake Bites for breakfast at home or on the go, or have them for a morning of afternoon snack. Of course, they make a great dessert, too.

Skinny Foods for Valentine’s Day

Skinny Foods for Valentine’s Day 0

The typical Valentine’s Day foods can present a paradox. The very treats used to celebrate this day of love can make you feel bloated and sluggish. That has be the opposite of how you would want to feel when you are around that special someone or if you are simply trying to show yourself a little love. This Thursday, do yourself proud while enjoying seasonal treats to celebrate.

Bruschetta

Start your meal with some appetizers, but do not throw off your entire day with excessive carbs, fat, and calories as you might get from spinach artichoke dip with chips, fried shrimp, or cheese fondue with bread.

Instead, try low-carb bruschetta made with Parisian Rusk Bread. Each serving has 110 calories, 5 grams of fiber, and 15 grams of protein, but only 5 grams of net carbs. Pile it with chopped tomatoes marinated with balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt, pepper, and basil, and top with shredded parmesan to start your meal off tasting right without putting you over the top for the day.

Spaghetti

A plate of fettuccine alfredo or spaghetti carbonara can pump up the love, but it can also pump up your waistline. If regular pasta is too heavy in carbs for your lifestyle, check out our selection of Protein and Low-Carb Spaghetti. Options include nearly carb-free shirataki noodles, protein pasta, and superfood black bean and mung bean pasta.

Try any of our diet-friendly pasta alternatives with a simple blend of olive oil, salt, basil, and parmesan cheese or tomato sauce with mushrooms and ground turkey. If you are on your own or do not feel like cooking, feel free to choose an Instant Protein Entrée such as Spaghetti Bolognese. It can warm your soul as you lose weight.

Hot Chocolate

It is only natural to want to extend the evening with a hot drink, possibly while watching a movie. Do you know your little glass of hot cocoa can contain 300 calories and 40 grams of sugar? It may not seem so heart-warming once you know that!

Protein Hot Chocolate can provide the warmth and chocolate taste you want with barely any sugar. Each cup provides about 15 grams of protein and under 5 grams of carbs, allowing you to indulge without a sugar high before bed. Choose Classic, Marshmallow, Cinnamon, or another flavor to get your fix without paying a heavy price.

Cheesecake

Let’s hear it for cheesecake as a great Valentine’s Day dessert. In just a few bites, you can down a day’s worth of saturated fat and sugar and a meal’s worth of calories. What is so great about that?

Try Protein Cheesecake Pudding instead if you really want the flavor but are too savvy to fall for the diet-busting pitfalls of regular cheesecake. Have it plain for 90 calories and 15 grams of protein in a few minutes. You can also make it fancier by topping it with sliced strawberries or raspberries and calorie-free chocolate sauce.

There is no need to deviate from your weight loss goals when you want to celebrate. Just make smart substitutions. Have a healthy, Happy Valentine’s Day!
