Winter weather is here, and a warm bowl of soup can be just the thing. Soup is not known for being nutritious, but have you considered Protein Soup? The BariatricPal Store has a range of delicious flavors that can be the perfect addition to your weight loss diet this winter.
High-Protein, Low-Carb Soup
A cup of tomato soup can have 12 grams of sugar and 2 grams of protein. A cup of chicken noodle soup can have 10 or more grams of carbohydrates and 4 grams of protein. BariatricPal Protein Soup has at least 15 grams of protein with no added sugars and a reduced amount of carbohydrates.
Some Protein Soups are specifically designed to be meal replacements and come fortified with at least 15 essential vitamins and minerals. Chicken Tortilla, Cream of Tomato, and Creamy Chicken are examples. Protein One Chicken Soupis fully fortified, plus it has 27 grams of fiber and 5 grams of protein. Way to make every spoonful count!
Suitable for Post-Op Bariatric Surgery Patients
You may be on a liquid diet for days or weeks after bariatric surgery, and it can take months to get back to a fully solid diet. Throughout that time, protein is essential to aid in healing and to promote fullness, maintain muscle mass, and support healthy weight loss.
While protein shakes and smoothies can do the trick, Protein Soups offer a warming alternative that is savory instead of sweet. It can feel far more satisfying to sit down to a bowl of, say, Chicken with Pasta Protein Soup than to sip yet another vanilla shake for lunch. Even when you are on a solid foods diet, Protein Soup can help boost your protein intake easily.
Flavors That Only Taste Decadent
Which soups do you love the most? Cream of chicken with 16 grams of fat? Broccoli cheddar with 18 grams of carbs? French onion with 6 grams of saturated fat and 15 grams of sugar?
How about the above flavors, but with 100 calories and 15 grams of protein? Some of our other low-carb, high-protein flavors include Chicken Noodle, Beef with Pasta, Bacon Cheddar, Italian Tomato, Creamy Tomato, and Chicken Tortilla.
A Hot Meal Replacement or Snack Anytime
A warming soup in the winter can make life seem so much easier. It is even more important to feel warm after weight loss surgery, when many patients experience feelings of cold. It takes only a minute to have a warm bowl of soup ready.
BariatricPal Protein Soup comes in single-serving packets that you can mix with hot water or warm milk for a creamier soup. BariatricPal Protein One Chicken Soup also comes in a tub with a scoop.
Great in Recipes
Protein Soup is great on its own, or you can add ingredients such as cooked vegetables or lean proteins, such as cooked ground turkey or fish, to add bulk. Our soups can also go into recipes such as meatloaf with Onion Soup and green bean, or tuna casserole with Protein Pasta, with Cream of Mushroom Soup.
If you want some healthy comfort this winter, look no further than BariatricPal Protein Soups. They are instant, delicious, and high in protein to help you meet your weight loss goals while staying warm and cozy.
