We all know how hard it can be to find healthy protein-packed snacks that can help you hit your protein goal each day, especially when you lead a busy lifestyle (which most of us do). Having high protein snacks that you can bring anywhere and everywhere is a game changer! Say goodbye to gas station nonsense and stay on top of your goals with the following snack ideas:
Jerky and Meat Snacks:
Whether you prefer jerky (steak strips), meat sticks, bars, or bites, these are the perfect protein-packed snack to take on any of your adventures, including, but certainly not limited to: hiking, boating, fishing, work, camping, or road trips. Not only will they help you hit your protein goals, but most jerky and meat sticks contain higher fat which is key for energy levels. The balance between the protein and fat is what makes these ideal for snacking.
If you enjoy any sort of meat snacks, trust me when I say you will love our APEX Protein Snacks! Unlike other brands, ours contain ZERO filler ingredients or sugars. They are full of flavor and loaded with 10-16g of protein per serving (depending on the type). Enjoy them on their own, pair them with cheese, or share them with your friends!
Greek Yogurt / Cottage Cheese:
Packed with roughly 15g of protein per ½ cup, these are both easy, portable ways to consume more protein in your day. Not only are they an excellent source of protein, but also calcium, which is an important nutrient for bone health. Pair them with your favorite fruit, a little granola, and enjoy parfait style!
Protein Shakes and Snacks:
Protein snacks and shakes are incredibly convenient and give you exactly what you need.. protein! When shopping for these protein sources it’s important to be mindful of what ingredients are being used, the quality and quantity of the protein, and how they are manufactured. Just because they are a protein snack or shake doesn’t mean they aren’t loaded with sugar, fillers, and low-quality protein.
Bowmar Nutrition protein powder is a low-fat, low-carb formula that delivers 22 grams of protein per serving. It’s important to note that not all protein powders are created equal. The ingredients used, the quality of said ingredients, and the way in which they are processed all vary across the board. Some use low quality ingredient sources and/or high temperature processing in order to produce in bulk for cheap, this way they make the most profit of each tub. Ours are made with the highest quality ingredients and are low-temperature processed to ensure you get the most out of each scoop at an affordable price. Plus, the best part, they are available in more flavors than your typical chocolate and vanilla.
Alright before you get too excited, just remember that baked goods aren’t the most nutrient dense option when it comes to snacking; however, there is a way you can up the nutritional value! ADD PROTEIN POWDER. Nothing is better than your favorite sweet treat, so why not get the best of both worlds by simply adding in some protein powder to your recipes to up the protein content. We suggest trying our protein monster balls, protein cookies, or some of our other high-protein, low-sugar recipes available on our recipe app.
Who doesn’t like to add a little *sweetness* to their snacking? Got a rice cake? Throw on some delicious nut butter. Eating a boring piece of toast? Give it some love with a nut butter. Grabbing some pretzels or crackers? You already know what would make that better.. NUT BUTTER! They are great for on-the-go snacking or at home when you want something easy but at the same time tasty!
Don’t settle for just any nut butter though, use Bowmar Butter. Why Bowmar Butter you ask? Because they contain more protein and less carbs and fats per serving than your ordinary store bought nut butters. They also come in unique, DELICIOUS flavors you won’t find anywhere else. They make snacking fun!
High protein snacks are important to have on hand at all times! You never know when hunger will strike. It’s best to be prepared and have portable options so you can fuel your body and conquer your day!
