I’ve got a real treat for you – 3 healthy high protein snacks that can help you make it through the mid-afternoon slump.
That’s one of my personal prime snacking times! Planning ahead so I have something healthy on hand is a must for me.
These snacks are surprisingly satisfying and so tasty you’d never guess they’re actually GOOD for you. High protein snacks provide numerous health benefits. They promote satiety, helping to control appetite and prevent overeating. Additionally, high protein snacks support muscle growth and repair, enhance metabolic function, and contribute to the maintenance of overall health and wellbeing.
All of these snack ideas are high in protein and low in sugar, AND they’ll easily tide you over till dinnertime … AND keep you on track with your goals 🙂
- Cucumber slices with hummus. Peel a medium cucumber and cut it into spears. Dip the cucumber into your favorite flavor of hummus and enjoy.
- Turkey roll-ups. Take 2-4 slices of nitrate-free deli turkey and 2-4 pickle spears. Roll the pickles up in the turkey slices. (Bonus tip: add a little mustard before rolling, and consider rolling them in a lettuce leaf.)
- Guacamole stuffed eggs. Cut a hard-boiled egg in half, and stuff each side with prepared guacamole. So good!
Hack for perfect hard-boiled eggs: Place eggs in a medium pot and add enough cold water to cover them, plus ½ to 1 tsp salt. Place on stove over medium-high heat and bring to a rolling boil. Cover the pot, turn off the heat, and set a timer for 20 minutes.
