I'm vegetarian, so a lot of meat-based proteins aren't options for me. Like others have mentioned, I eat eggs, lowfat cheese, yogurt, tofu, soymilk, beans/lentils, etc. for protein.

For a quick protein boost in snacks or meals, I love whey protein powder (I get "body fortress" on amazon for about $15 per giant 2lb-cannister; Whey protein is the protein in milk). I buy both vanilla flavor (which I add to oatmeal and fruit smoothies) and "cookies & cream" flavor (tastes just like chocolate, and is perfect when blended with milk or soymilk for a high-protein shake...). You can also mix it into other things, like making high-protein pancakes, high-protein peanut butter oatmeal balls, etc.

I have a half-ounce of almonds almost every morning. You can have them raw, salted, roasted, however you want them. A half ounce is about 12-14 whole almonds and if you have them with a cup of tea, it's a filling snack.

Have you considered adding more protein to meals? I have seen this eliminate the desire for snacks in some people.

Hi,

Just a question for people who have way more experience than I do. What are some suggestions for some high protein snacks? That seems to be where I have the most trouble. I stay within the guidelines for carbs and fats but can't seem to meet the protein. What are some easy, high protein snacks that I can take on the go with me or just have handy?

I really appreciate any suggestions!

Thanks,

Lisa
