Hi, I’m Michele Phelan, Nutritionist at Blossom Bariatrics. Today we’re going to discuss a few very helpful tips for bariatric patients. Here’s a few ideas for some high protein snacks in between your meals, beef jerky, turkey jerky works really well if you like them. You can choose low sodium if you like. Raw veggies, you can even have hummus, guacamole, pico de gallo salsa with these as well. Many patients find that nuts work wonderfully, almonds, pistachios, walnuts, cashews. All of these work as snacks. Deli meat and cheese is another fantastic choice. You can roll a few up and have those as snacks. You can even roll them up with a slice of cheese as well, and there’s some really good protein bars out there. Two of the ones I always recommend to our patients is Quest protein bars. It’s a very clean and delicious protein bar, very high protein. Another one that I really like and that I recommend a lot is the Power Crunch protein bars.
