Whether you’re on the go, or around the house, eating a high-protein snack is good for you. It’ll fill you up and help provide you with energy to take on the rest of your day. Try one, or all, of these easy high-protein snacks.
1. Edamame Beans
Simply boil, season with a pinch of salt and enjoy! Or top with garlic and Parmesan cheese, or cayenne pepper and paprika.
2. Hardboiled Egg
Eaten in moderation, hardboiled eggs contain plenty of protein. Enjoy with some vegetables to provide your body with vitamins and fibre.
3. Oatmeal with Toasted Almonds
If you’re craving something a little sweeter, a bowl of oatmeal with toasted almonds will definitely hit the spot.
4. Roasted Chick Peas
High in protein and fibre roasted chick peas make a great snack to munch on. Make your own by draining and rinsing a can of chick peas, lightly coating in olive oil, seasoning and baking for 45 mins in the oven at 425°F
Dip carrot sticks, celery, peppers, and broccoli into this dip.
6. Cottage Cheese with Fruit
Grab a bowl of cottage cheese and toss in some fresh berries or banana slices.
7. Tuna on crackers
Mix tuna with a little bit of mayonnaise, garlic, and your favourite seasoning and spoon on to crackers.
8. Pumpkin Seed Butter
This peanut butter alternative is higher in protein and iron than any other spread. And because it’s not a nut, it’s allergy safe. Spread on celery or into a tortilla with banana.
