High Protein Snacks

Sometimes all we want to do is snack because we didn’t get a good breakfast, or don’t have time to sit down and eat a full meal.  Here are some quick snack ideas that are high in protein that will help tide you over for the next meal!

1. Greek Yogurt

High in protein, and low and lactose (fact I’ve learned from my lactose- intolerant father), greek yogurt is the perfect snack.  You can top it with anything you’d like including fruit and nuts. Make sure to go for the plain kind without any added sugars or synthetic ingredients.  You can always mix in a little honey or a sweetener of your choice.

2. Almonds

Another great snack is a handfull of almonds.  A quick and mess-free snack that you can have on the go.  Make sure to get the unsalted variety as they can be very high in sodium.

3.  Edamame

One of my favorite high protein snacks is edamame! This can be found in the frozen section of most grocery stores.  All you have to do is steam or boil and season however you like.  It’s a great savory snack that is high in protein.
