I know you think I lay around all day with a fanny pack full of skittles (which is partly true) that I snack on all day but……..I really love to snack on things that I know will leave me full for longer than 10 minutes. I have also been doing more lifting than EVER before and my muscles are clearly getting huge so I have been upping my protein intake and thought I would share with you my favorite snacks lately…..
This would be my favorite turkey and cottage cheese. No utensil or dishes necessary (unless you are a clean person and don’t dip your turkey straight into the cc like I do).
I accidently ate the last turkey without defrosting the next pack……hence the frozen turkey.
String cheese on anything. Crackers, tortilla, plain (like how I ate one during church today). I LOVE the jalepeno flavored string cheese!
Obviously peanut butter (and jelly) on every snack I eat. And to make it even better….add in a cup o milk.
PS there is clearly a large amout of protein in peanut butter frosting……
Hard-boiled egg……does it get any easier than that. This is my favorite during the school year when I am running out the door and need snacks for the day in a hurry (because let’s be honest I pack my lunch for the next day of work as soon as I get home the previous day). Billy just made a big batch today!
And for days that I am needing some animal protein but don’t feel like grilling up some chicken…….I turn to frosted animal crackers.
Other favorite snacks that I was too lazy to try and make look pretty today but have in previous posts are TUNA (mixed with salsa, cottage cheese, greek yogurt or anything your heart desires), BROCCOLI….yep, there is about 3 grams of protein per cup, HUMMUS and obviously delicious protein smoothies!
What are some of your usual snacks? Favorite protein filled snacks? Do you like protein bars?
Do you have a tough time (being a carboholic like me) trying to get in enough protein? Any vegetarians/vegans out there that have some creative protein snacks for us?!?
What do you think is the WORST smelling food?
-I think tuna smells awful but I love the taste (weird, huh?), eggs (once again I LOVE eating them), and I can’t think of any others….what do you think?
