15 Portable And Healthy Protein Snacks

July 28, 2015 2 min read

Snacks are more or less essential when it comes to keeping your body going during the day. Whether it is powering up before a workout or avoiding a mid day energy crash protein snacks are where it's at. Here are 15 super easy, and super portable, high protein tasties:

1. Beef or Turkey Jerky

Skip the high sodium and sugar options and go for a low sodium, natural, lightly flavoured option for a great protein source. A one ounce serving has about 9 grams! It is portable and keeps fresh for months. Easy, peasy.

2. Mixed Nuts or Trail Mix

Nuts provide a really easy source of protein. Try some mixed nuts or add some fruit for a little hit of sweetness. Almonds and pistachios are your best bet for protein, if you were wondering.

3. Pumpkin Seeds

A half cup of pumpkin seeds provides about 14 grams of protein! Perfect little pre-workout snack!

4. Hard Boiled Eggs

Eggs are one of the best ways to get a healthy dose of protein. Boil and peel a dozen eggs at the start of the week and then put one in a small, air tight container to take to work for an easy, quick snack when the time comes.

5. Deli Roll Up

2 slices of deli meat with 1 slice of cheese and a dash of pepper. Add a tomato or some lettuce for some veg.

6. Edamame Poppers

1 cup of edamame is about 17 grams of protein! A great way to eat them is to buy the beans fresh, steam them for about 6 minutes and chow down!

7. Hummus Dippers

This could be a new use for your travel mug! Throw a few tablespoons of hummus in the bottom and add some veggies like carrots, celery and snow peas, on top. Screw on the lid, throw in your bag and you've got a snack waiting when you need it!  

8. Banana Nutter

Put peanut butter on top of a rice cake and add slices from half a banana. For an extra healthy boost, sprinkle with cinnamon.

9. Chocolate Milk

Chocolate milk is a really great source of  quality protein. Try to find one that is low in sugar and you've got a perfect solution to a snack emergency.  

10. Almond Butter Toast Sticks

This is another one you can make up in a travel mug or a mason jar. Toast two slices of whole grain bread and slice into 1/2 inch slices. Place 2 tablespoons of almond butter (or other nut butter) in the bottom of your container, stick the toast in vertically, sprinkle with cinnamon, screw on the top and you're out the door.
