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.
P28 High Protein Bread and Cashew Butter
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.
Think Thin Protein Bites, Bars and Smoothies
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.
Roasted Chickpeas, The Good Bean
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.
Power Granola, (Sugar Free, Gluten Free, Vegan)
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!
Note: The P28 items and Think Thin protein powder was gifted. The Think Thin Bars, The Good Bean and Power Granola was personally purchased.
