Fabulous Finds for a Healthy Father’s Day

Fabulous Finds for a Healthy Father’s Day 0

Father’s Day is this Sunday, June 16. Dad deserves to eat what he loves, but he also deserves to be healthy. The BariatricPal Store has great-tasting, weight loss-friendly items you can feel good about giving to Dad this year. Here are a few ideas.

Bacon Chips

Give Dad what he really wants: bacon. Just skip the heart attack that goes with it. With Kay’s Naturals “Pass the Peas” Protein Snacks, Dad gets a dose of heart-healthy chickpeas, but will never know it. Instead, these Maple Bacon-flavored snacks taste sweet, salty, and, well, manly.

Each ounce has 90 calories and 0 grams of saturated fat. In comparison, an ounce of bacon has 153 calories and 12 grams of saturated fat! Each serving of “Pass the Peas” Protein Snacks has 6 grams of protein, the same as in an ounce of chicken breast.

Protein Shake

How can you maximize your gains at the gym? Getting in some protein before and after a workout can boost energy so you can work harder, and speed muscle recovery so you can hit the gym tomorrow, too. A protein shake can do the trick, and Protein One delivers the taste and nutrients you need.

BariatricPal Protein One has 27 grams of protein and almost no sugar, but it tastes fantastic and is easy to use by mixing it with water, another beverage, or food such as oatmeal, yogurt, or cottage cheese. Try it once or twice a day before or after a workout or as a meal replacement or snack to get 28 essential vitamins and minerals and 5 grams of fiber per serving. It comes in Chocolate, Vanilla, and many more flavors. You can also add Unflavored to almost anything.

Instant Dinner

It may not be quite the thing to have on Father’s Day, but there is sure to be a day when Dad needs a hearty meal - now! Beef Stroganoff with Noodles is just one of many BariatricPal Protein Entrees with great taste and a load of protein, but fewer than 300 calories and no unnecessary starches.

These entrees are ready in minutes and are a meal in themselves, so Dad can easily choose them instead of ordering in. Spaghetti and Meatballs, Green Pepper Steak, and Chicken Enchilada Verde are just a few of the other options.

Protein Cookies

Guys may love their meat and potatoes, but they may have a secret sweet tooth, too. To satisfy it, what about cookies? What about an entire bag of cookies? My Protein Bites cookies come in bags of 3 satisfying cookies. Eat one for 90 calories and 2 grams of added sugar, or have all three and get 24 grams of protein.

Depend on classics such as Peanut Butter, Oatmeal Raisin, and Chocolate Chip, or try Lemon Drops or Birthday Cake. They come in single packs or 8-packs. You can also get the Variety Pack so Dad has the cookies he needs for any mood.

Show the father figures in your life how much you care by giving them something they love and is convenient, but that is healthy and good for weight loss, too. It is possible when you shop at The BariatricPal Store. Happy Father’s Day!
