When it comes to living a healthy and active lifestyle, getting enough protein is critical. Because almost every function of your body utilizes proteins, it’s important to make sure you’re eating enough protein that your body can operate smoothly. Increasing your protein intake could produce many health benefits, including increasing your energy, helping you lose weight, and aiding in the absorption of other nutrients. Although many people believe that adhering to a high-protein diet requires constantly consuming meat, you don’t have to eat chicken breast or steak at every meal. We’ve compiled a list of easy high-protein snacks that are perfect for getting your protein fix on the go.
Easy High-Protein Snacks
One of the most modern ways to add protein to your diet is through the use of a protein powder. They are constantly growing in popularity. Although many protein powders are made from soy, whey, or casein, your options don’t end there. Have you heard about protein powders made from chicken and egg whites? BarnDad’s BIN™ CHXN™ 100% Chicken Protein Isolate yields some of the highest levels of muscle-building amino acids and contains 180% more naturally occurring L-Arginine than whey. Plus, because you can add this mildly flavored protein powder to a variety of recipes, your diet will never bore you.
Fish is a great source of protein. In fact, you can enjoy 100 grams of tuna (which is approximately 200 calories) and take in 30 grams of protein! That’s about as much protein as you would consume eating five hard-boiled eggs! Not only is tuna valuable on its own, but it is also the basis for many amazing recipes. Easily incorporated into salads, sandwiches, and pasta, tuna is a staple for many delicious meals. Its versatility combined with its distinct and classic flavor can bring a new element to just about any dish. However, what gives tuna that superstar snack status is how powerful of a punch it packs all by itself.
When it comes to easy high-protein snacks, nothing beats versatility like G.O.R.P.: good old raisins and peanuts. While you can find trail mix already made and packaged at the store, making your own trail mix is a great way to save money and create a custom on-the-go protein snack. Combine an assortment of nuts and seeds, throw in some dried fruits for bursts of flavor, and if you want, you can even add some of your favorite candies to satisfy that sweet tooth! With G.O.R.P., just about anything goes.
