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.

tasty and easy
I finally found a protein powder that is completely nut free. This product is great! My daughter uses it everyday at college.
I was slightly skeptic that I wouldn't like this as I haven't found a protein powder that I enjoy. It's always too gritty and I can't stomach it, however this one was not the case. It blends smooth and it's so delicious. I'll definitely be buying this again. And look forward to trying some other items out. As a bonus it's from my home province of PEI. Each day I add a scoop of Vanilla to my smoothie which consists of dragon fruit, pineapple, coconut, and a bit of orange juice and it's a delight each time!
I've never been one to take vitamins - as much as I should! However, now that Nutracelle has their sugar-free multivitamins I actually look forward to it! I've been taking these for a week straight already and I LOVE them. They taste like candy, with no chemical flavor AT all.
I love starting my day with a Nutralean shake that tastes great and makes me feel full for hours. My favorite flavor is Chocolate Dream, it is delicious.
I was really impressed with how good the salted caramel tasted and how good the product is for you!! I will be getting this for awhile and looking forward to trying more flavours!!
My son and I are really enjoying the Nutralean. I love the Salted Caramel and Coffee Mocha. Strawberry is his favorite.
Totally delicious and beat part guilt free!!
Love this product, down 12 pounds and feeling great!
Best protein powder ever! Bowels working so much better. So great to get the prebiotic fiber
I like the taste of the Nutrabites! I didn’t at first, plus they arrived all clumped together (but apparently that is rectified ).
Heating them for eight seconds (per bite) in the microwave makes them taste even better.
Love the amazing recipes !
The Nutrabites are very filling and taste delicious! A sweet treat without the guilt.
Nutralean is the best protein powder on the market. The salted caramel is a great addition to the lineup.
I am so happy to finally be able to use a protein powder that I can use in my blender worry free due to my children's food allergies. I haven't purchased any since we found out our kids had food allergies due to the allergen labels on them. Nutracelle, also tastes better than all the one's I've used in the past. It actually does keep me full for hours. Such a great product!
After using this protein powder for a while. I'm feeling better than I have in a very long time. No reflux or upset tummy.Plus the fact it makes it alot easier to get my daily protein in each day. I really love these shakes and the fact I can also add it to things I'm cooking.Thank you so much for everything.Big Hug
They are delicious & satisfying
Very tasty snacks with a good dose of protein. I especially like the mint ones.
The Nutralean is, as always, delicious and super versatile. Highly recommend for anyone wishing to add protein to their diet without the added rubbish that other brands can contain.
I LOVE IT!!! I like the taste and that I can mix it with water or whatever types of milks I like. It mixes up really well no clumps, no yucky after taste. I also plan to cook with it soon.
They were great tasting, really enjoyed them especially the mint chocolate .would like to see better packaging but other than that I would buy them again :)
These are really delicious!
The product does what it says. The protein is a little thick with small particles in the mix. If you can get past this, it's for you.
I just love Nuracelle so much. I've shared it with family and friends. I've even made things with it and my family loved them.My first order was the best thing I had ever done.my boyfriend loves it too. I thank you for all you so to make things better for all of us that love it.it has changed my and my belief in protein powders. You really have renewed my faith smile I love everyone of them I have tried.thank you again so much ❤
I love both flavors of the nutrabites! They leave me nice and full and I don't go looking to snack any further after I've snacked on a nutrabite!
I am a HUGE fan of mint chocolate and even though I kicked sugar a long time ago I still find the cravings can be so bad sometimes! This is where my new nutrabites have become a game changer. Usually I’d make a nutracelle mug cake or some kind of cheesecake bite but some days more cooking is the absolute last thing I want to do. Now I just grab one or two (sometimes three 🤭) of my mint chocolate nutrabites and I am 100% satisfied and 100% guilt free!!
I love my coffee mocha!!!
I have it ice cold or as a hot frothy drink. Makes my day and keeps me full for a few hours .
It's great for these hot days and don't really feel like eating.
I LOVE my nutrabites!! After trying tons of gross protein bars that were packed with chemicals, it's SO nice to be able to enjoy a legitimately delicious snack that's low cal, zero carb, AND naturally sweetened.
Loved the Coffee Mocha sample. Will definitely be in my next order
NUTRALEAN Prebiotic Protein Powder | Coffee Mocha
Love the chewy dense texture, crunchy bits, flavour & find them very filling. Chocolate mint isn't too minty, but just right. Chocolate chunk needs improvement as I've yet to find any chocolate chunks/chips no matter how small a bite I take.
These little guys are so yummy! Dense, chewy and super chocolatey, they are perfect for an afternoon snack or to kick a craving.
Ok seriously this is the best protein treat I’ve had. Yummy !!!
I had a bad first experience that I have already addressed with Jordan, my votes arrived all clumped together due to the heat. I love the protein powder but for the price of these nutrabites I am going to attempt to make my own using the recipe in the book.
These are absolutely delicious! I cannot get enough of them! I have to hide them so my son doesn’t eat them all on me.
Like the title says the mint balls are my favorite. I like the chocolate chunk but the taste of flax seed is very prominent in the chocolate one and im not a fan. Ill buy for sure again but only the mint one.
These bites taste insanely delicious! I am not usually fond of chocolate or any sweets at all, but these bites are definitely exceptional and my bias! I cannot choose which one is may favourite but love both flavours. I have them for breakfast, lunch and dessert! And what I love love about these little guys is that they are sugar free and no carbs! Never find protein bars at store that has no sugar and no carbs, will definitely get more!
