Healthy Snacks for Bariatric Weight Loss Surgery Patients

Hi, I’m Michelle Phelan, Nutritionist at Blossom Bariatrics, and I’m here today to go over a few frequently asked questions from our patients.

Snacks can be difficult for a lot of bariatric patients. A really great and easy snack is a stick of string cheese and a handful of almonds. That will give you 15 grams of protein. Another great snack is a half a container of your favorite Greek yogurt with maybe a tablespoon of your favorite flavor of whey protein powder and that should give you anywhere from 18-20 grams of protein. Another great snack is a scrambled egg with a tablespoon of parmesan cheese. That will easily give you 10 grams of protein. One more quick and easy snack is a half a cup of cottage cheese and that’s going to give you around 15 grams of protein. If you have any additional questions feel free to contact us at Thanks for watching and have a healthy day.
