Is it just me or are you also awed by Nutrisystem’s meal plans and how they are helping people lose weight? I joined Nutrisystem about a year ago, and I must admit I love it. I get to choose meals and am impressed by the recipes and the ingredients in the foods. In this post, I will talk about one of my favorite breakfast delicacies, Nutrisystem’s Biscotti Bites.
The pastry-cookie snack
Part pastry, part cookie, the crunchy pistachio-almond biscotti bites feature whole grains with no artificial sweeteners, flavors or colors. I love to dunk the bites in my coffee, and they taste very good. They are also a good fit for snacking; I carry them around when am not at home. I alternate them with the Buttermilk Waffles for breakfast.
One of the things that made me fall in love with the Biscotti Bites is the fact that it is mostly made from natural, healthy ingredients. Again, the ingredients have been balanced out to give just the right amounts of fat, protein, and carbs.
I particularly liked the fact that the bites are made with whole wheat flour as opposed to refined flour. The bites also have good amounts of almonds and pistachios for fat and fiber, whey protein, eggs, soy, and milk for protein. Each serving also has riboflavin, niacin, thiamine, folic acid, and reduced iron all in moderated amounts.
With 150 calories (with 60 of these coming from fat), the Biscotti Bites give me a morning energy boost while giving me room to enjoy other recipes throughout the day. There is up to 4g of dietary fiber per serving which start off the processes in my digestive tract on a good note besides also helping to balance my blood glucose and cholesterol levels.
The 18 g of healthy carbs and 10g of sugar in the snacks, give me the energy to do stuff (like house chores) in the morning and throughout the day. I get 6g of protein per serving, enough to aid in nutrient absorption and keep my hormones in good shape throughout in my mornings.
With just 2.5g of saturated fat, the bites offer me a safe snack to bite on during the day. There is also 95mg of sodium and 25mg of healthy cholesterol in each serving. However, it is worth noting there is not much vitamin in the Biscotti Bites, and I think that Nutrisystem should have included some.
- The crunchy bites provide a full feeling very fast, something very welcome for me as I intend to lose even more weight.
- They are not only crunchy but also sweet and convenient. I love to dunk them in coffee or milk, and I can carry them with me to snack while out.
- They are especially great with coffee or tea.
- They have a great natural flavor, no sweeteners, and added colors.
- They do not have as much vitamin as I want for my breakfast.
- They are a little hard to chew
I think Nutrisystem’s Biscotti Bites are a great snack to have on your meal plan especially if you are watching your weight. The nutrients have been properly balanced without sacrificing the taste and flavor. The nutty bites help me keep my calorie intake in check as they make me feel satisfied quickly. I will choose Nutrisystem’s Biscotti Bites anytime.
