Bariatric Beef Stroganoff: Healthy Comfort Food During the Holidays

One of the best parts of the holidays is the comfort food. There’s nothing quite like going back home for Thanksgiving and Christmas to an array of hot, delicious homemade meals waiting for you at the dinner table. After all, some of the best family memories are made over a shared meal while enjoying old favorite recipes.

But the holidays are also the time of the year when most people put on a little weight. A cheat meal here and there doesn’t hurt, but during the holidays, it can be hard to avoid having a cheat meal at least once a day. Between office holiday parties, kids’ school functions and visiting relatives, you’re bound to sneak in more than just one cheat meal a week in the months of November and December.

But delicious meals don’t have to be calorie-laden. You can still follow a balanced, low-calorie, high-protein diet without having to miss out on your favorite holiday dishes. At Bariatric Health & Wellness, we understand the difficulty in healthy meal planning during the holidays. So we offer a wide variety of low-calorie takes on delicious holiday favorites, like our hearty, healthy beef stroganoff. A savory, mouthwatering treat that contains only 260 calories and 4 grams of sugar, this protein-packed dish is the perfect comfort meal replacement. You’ll get a whopping 23 grams of protein from this meal, leaving you feeling full and satisfied for hours.

Enjoy an all-American classic this holiday season without all of the added calories.
Chunky slices of juicy, savory, tender beef are drowned in a creamy mushroom sauce. They sit on top of a layer of tasty noodles for the perfect combination of rich taste.

Ready in just two minutes in the microwave or eight minutes simmering on the stovetop, this savory dish will remind you of your favorite home-cooked meals this holiday season. Treat yourself to a flavor-rich comfort food without having to worry about the post-meal calorie guilt-trip. You’ll delight in eating the same foods you always have during the holidays - only this time, you can ditch the sugar and fat without having to sacrifice all of the traditional flavor.

You shouldn’t have to choose between enjoying delicious holiday comfort food and maintaining a healthy diet. Effective weight loss dieting should not feel restrictive. If your diet is solely focused on restricting certain foods, you’re more likely to fall off the wagon under the pressure of temptation. This is especially true during the holidays when there are tons of sweets and comfort dishes - like this delicious beef stroganoff - readily available everywhere you go. It is imperative that you allow yourself to indulge every once in a while in order to stay on track with your healthy eating goals.

Healthy eating does not mean sacrificing all of your favorite foods but rather making better food choices. With our delicious, calorie-conscious meal options, healthy eating is made easy. Delight in the freedom to indulge in all of your classic favorites with our nutritious and savory recipes at Bariatric Health & Wellness.
