Top 10 Bariatric-Friendly Snacks
Are you looking for that perfect snack to satisfy cravings and tide you over until the next meal, but still fit into your weight loss or low-carb diet? The best snacks are high in protein, low in carbs or calories, convenient, and, of course, great-tasting. These are the 10 most popular snacks at the BariatricPal Store.
Number 10: BariatricPal Square Protein Wafers - Vanilla
Are these protein bars? Are they cookies? Are they snacks? However you want to categorize them, they’re delicious and filling. Each serving has 15 grams of protein and 9 grams of fat. These are slow-digesting nutrients that can keep you full for longer. They have crisp, thin wafers with sweet and creamy filling, and they’re topped with a drizzle of icing. Other flavors include Chocolate, Raspberry, Lemon, and Mocha.
How would you like to try chips that come without guilt? Protein Diet Protein Chips do just that. The five flavors in the Variety Pack include Barbecue, Sea Salt and Vinegar, Spicy Nacho Cheese, Ranch, and Dill Pickle. They have only 4 grams of net carbs. They’re designed to satisfy hunger with 4 grams of dietary fiber and 14 grams of protein, or the amount in a half-cup of cottage cheese. They are great on their own, or you can dip them into a favorite low-carb dip. They’re also great crumbled on salads, soups, and casseroles.
These are a cheesy, crunchy snack that is made with real cheese, sour cream, and buttermilk. They’re like corn chips, but each bag of strips has 10 grams of protein. Other flavors include Honey Mustard, Party Mix, and Pizza.
Tortilla chips aren’t what you’d call “bariatric-friendly” when you consider that they’re made from starchy corn and are high in carbs and low in protein. These Tortilla Style Protein Chips taste just as good, but their nutritional information tells a different story than regular ones. Each serving has 18 grams of protein - the amount in 3 eggs - and only 4 grams of carbs. Flavors include Nacho Cheese, Loaded Taco, Ranch, Chili Lime, and Spicy Sweet Chili. Plain or with guacamole or salsa, they’re a winning snack.
Light, fluffy marshmallows are back on the menu with these sugar-free marshmallows. They are perfect for eating on their own, adding to the top of sugar-free hot chocolate or mocha, or melting on top of a low-carb, high-protein wafer or cracker with some sugar-free chocolate. Each huge marshmallow has only 32 calories, and no fat or sugar. Use them to satisfy your sweet tooth any time without guilt.
What are Protein Krinkles? They’re crunchy, crinkly, and absolutely delicious protein snacks. Each serving has 12 grams of protein and 130 calories. With flavors such as dill, garlic, and more seasonings, it’s like eating a dill pickle but with more nutrition. They also come in Pizza flavor.
These delicious snacks can add a sweetness to your snack rotation without putting you over on carbs. Each serving has 80 to 90 calories, at least 14 grams of protein, and only 1 gram of sugar. They’re also fortified with vitamins and minerals. You can choose how much water to mix into each packet for a shake or for a thicker pudding. Flavors in this pack include Chocolate, Vanilla, New York Cheesecake, Tropical Banana, and California Strawberry.
Potato chips have never been more satisfying, tastier, or more nutritious. In fact, they’ve never been better! These chips have 10 grams of high-quality soy protein and 6 grams of dietary fiber, which is way more than regular potato chips. The barbecue flavor has sea salt, sugar, onion powder, and garlic powder to offer the taste you love. Have them plain or dip them in a keto-friendly creamy dip. They also come in Ranch, Sea Salt and Vinegar, and Pizza flavors.
Number 2: BariatricPal Protein Pretzel Twists
These are salty, crunchy pretzels, just the way you love them, but without the starch that would put you off of your diet. Each serving of these classic pretzel twists has 12 grams of protein and 4 grams of dietary fiber to keep you full for a while. They have only 7 grams of net carbs per serving, which is only a fraction of the net carbs in regular pretzels. Have them straight from the bag or enjoy them with cheese or meat for a high-protein, low-carb snack.
