Good High Protein SnacksKnowing what food to eat for a high protein diet is easy. But people on the go needs an easier way to prepare them. This is important especially for those who are on a strict diet. Here are some of the best high protein – low fat – and low carb snacks that you can prepare quickly or grab anytime you feel the urge to just chomp down on something.
Carrot Sticks. Yes it’s a veggie but it’s a good source of protein. Every standard sized carrot actually has about 1.2 grams of it. It’s pretty simple, just grab a stick or two, wash it, peel (wash it again just to be sure) and get some salt and pepper just so it won’t taste too bland and you’re all set.
Egg Whites. The best way to eat this is boiled. It’s easier to separate the yolk from the egg white. Or you can separate the two before pouring the whites to a non stick pan. Add some salt and pepper and onions if you want an omelet. Egg whites have very high protein content and very low calorie content. The yolk on the other hand has the carbs, calories and fats. It’s more advisable to eat at least one egg yolk for six egg whites though and get a good amount of fats and carbs to balance your diet.
Cottage Cheese. You can buy these cheap at any grocery stores. It has very high protein content, a half cup of 2% cottage cheese contains about 16 grams of protein. It’s pretty much tasteless but throw in some fresh fruits with it and you have a healthy delicious snack.
Peanuts. Or peanut butter, whichever you prefer. They have a high protein content but also a high in fat so you might want to go easy on this. Spread it on a whole wheat bread and you’re done. You can add some banana slices too to make it a bit more fun.
Tuna. Almost everyone loves tuna. A regular sized can is very high on protein and contains approximately 25grams of protein. You can mix it with lettuce, tomato and olives and you have a nice salad. You can throw in some cheese as well for added flavor. The easiest though is making sandwich but you might want to go easy on the mayonnaise cause it’s VERY high on fat and calories (it’s made of egg ladies and gentlemen). A bit of onion and salt and pepper to taste would be great with the spread too.
Beef Jerky. You can easily buy this at most grocery stores or just make them yourselves if you know how to. It’s actually a very healthy choice, believe it or now. However, those that can be bought in convenience stores may have more salt content than we should take so be careful on picking ready those ready to eat stuff.
Protein Bars. The name says it all. Protein bars aren’t all the same though. They have different fat and carb content. Some actually has more than what our diet permits so make sure you read the label and calorie content on the wrapper.
