07 Oct My Go-To High Protein Snacks
- I’m a pescetarian who gets hungry every couple of hours. So what do I eat throughout the day?
For breakfast, I usually eat a bowl of high protein + fiber cereal, a piece of toast with peanut butter, or I blend up a delicious protein shake filled with greens (kale, green chard, and spinach) and half of a frozen banana. For lunch or dinner, I typically eat a big salad or cooked vegetables, combined with lean protein like fish, seafood or tofu (grilled, broiled or steamed… never fried).
In between meals, I munch on fresh fruit, hummus and veggies or high-protein snacks that keep me satiated (it takes longer for the body to digest proteins versus carbs and/or fat… so protein makes you feel full longer).
Here are a few of my go-to high-protein snacks that keep my hunger at bay throughout the day.
I’m a big fan of the good ol’ PB&J… I like it toasted and open-faced. One slice (or sometimes two) always hits the spot.
These protein bars and bites are tasty and low in sugar and hold me over until my next meal. My favorite: creamy peanut butter bars or bites.
When I want something salty, instead of grabbing a bag of chips, I grab a handful of these lightly salted chickpeas. They’re packed with protein, fiber and baked, not fried. That makes me a happy girl. Salt craving solved.
I’m allergic to almonds and that means most granola is off limits. But since this is nut-free, I can eat this high-protein and vegan granola with no worries. The only thing I have to worry about is eating the whole bag in one sitting… it’s so delicious!
