If you are a bariatric patient, you know that protein is one of your closest friends. Or if you’re thinking about becoming a bariatric patient, and you have absolutely no idea how to make protein your best friend, we have one easy source that consists of protein and TONS of other great nutrients.

 

Eggs! Did you know that one egg has 6 grams of protein? Also, a single large egg packs only 71 calories. Eggs are also a great source for Vitamin B2, Vitamin D, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Selenium, Zinc, Iron and Copper!

 

Not to mention, egg whites are one of the TOP sources of protein just under whey protein, and alongside lean meat, poultry and fish.

 

But how can you fit eggs into your diet?

 

We’re here to make your life easier! Here are three easy and delicious recipes that you can follow:
