Thanksgiving Weekend Hacks

Thursday Pie Day

Sure, Thanksgiving is Turkey Day, but let’s focus on what really matters at this moment: the pies. You probably have turkey or another source of lean protein to focus on for the main course, but what about when dessert time comes? Do not give into the pecan and pumpkin pie while adding 1,000 calories to your meal.

There is no need to despair. You can quickly turn any Protein Pudding into a pie for yourself or for the table if you use multiple packets. Try flavors such as Chocolate Cream, Chocolate Salted Caramel, or Strawberry Cream and count on 15 grams of protein and only 100 calories per serving. Now you can truly be thankful on Thanksgiving!

Black Friday

Wake up early and hit the stores for Black Friday and…eat your way through the day? That cannot be a good thing, unless you make smart swaps. Instead of…

If you would prefer to skip the lines but catch the deals, you can always stay home and order from The BariatricPal Store online. You can find the healthy foods you need without temptations leading you astray.

Saturday – Hello, Christmas Season!

Thanksgiving weekend is the traditional start of the holiday season. That can mean not only decorations and gifts, but also Christmas flavors. You can enjoy the flavors with choices such as Gingerbread Cake. It has 5 grams of fiber and 12 grams of protein per serving to prevent blood sugar spikes. You can have this freshly made treat in minutes. It has only 130 calories, making it an ideal snack or dessert. Feel free to use all the sugary cookies and candies you want when making a gingerbread house, but choose protein gingerbread for eating!

Sunday: Football Friends

As the weekend draws to a close, it is time to relax and maybe watch some football with friends. You may not feel like cooking, but that does not give you an excuse to fall prey to delivery and unhealthy snacks. Instead, set out your own low-carb protein munchies, such as Protein Chips, Protein Chips, and Protein Cookies. If those last bites of Thanksgiving dinner are still on your mind, chow down on Thanksgiving Turkey Jerky for a blend of sage, cranberries, and turkey flavors.
