Easy High Protein Snacks

Protein is an essential macronutrient that is crucial for building and repairing muscles, maintaining healthy skin and hair, and keeping our immune system strong. Incorporating high-protein snacks into our diet can help us meet our daily protein needs and keep us feeling full and satisfied between meals. Here are five healthy, high-protein snacks that you can enjoy anytime of the day.

Greek Yogurt and Berries

Greek yogurt is an excellent source of protein, providing around 17 grams of protein per 6-ounce serving. It also contains probiotics, which are beneficial bacteria that support gut health. Pairing Greek yogurt with fresh berries, such as strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries, adds natural sweetness and fiber to the snack. Berries are also packed with antioxidants, which help protect our cells from damage caused by free radicals. To make this snack even more filling, sprinkle a handful of nuts, such as almonds or walnuts, on top for some healthy fats.

Hard-Boiled Eggs and Veggies

Hard-boiled eggs are an easy and convenient source of protein, providing around 6 grams of protein per egg. They are also rich in vitamins and minerals, including vitamin D, vitamin B12, and choline. Pairing hard-boiled eggs with raw veggies, such as baby carrots, sliced bell peppers, or cherry tomatoes, adds fiber and nutrients to the snack. You can also dip the veggies in hummus or guacamole for some healthy fats and extra flavor.

Cottage Cheese and Pineapple

Cottage cheese is another high-protein dairy option, providing around 14 grams of protein per half-cup serving. It also contains calcium, which is important for bone health. Pairing cottage cheese with fresh pineapple chunks adds natural sweetness and vitamin C to the snack. Pineapple also contains an enzyme called bromelain, which may help improve digestion and reduce inflammation. For some added crunch and healthy fats, sprinkle some sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds on top.

Tuna Salad and Crackers

Canned tuna is a convenient and affordable source of protein, providing around 20 grams of protein per 3-ounce serving. It is also rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are important for heart health and brain function. Mixing canned tuna with some plain Greek yogurt, diced celery, and diced red onion creates a simple and tasty tuna salad. Serve the tuna salad with whole-grain crackers for some fiber and carbohydrates. You can also add some sliced cucumber or cherry tomatoes for some extra veggies.

Edamame and Hummus

Edamame is a type of young soybean that is rich in protein, providing around 17 grams of protein per cup. It is also a good source of fiber, iron, and calcium. Pairing edamame with hummus adds some healthy fats and extra protein to the snack. You can also sprinkle some sesame seeds on top for some

What is your cancellation policy?

 If you need to reschedule a session, no worries at all! Just give us a 24 hour heads up and you will not be charged for your workout.

What should I eat before a workout?

 Ideally, you should have some form of fuel in your system before you workout. Eating an easily digested carbohydrate an hour or so before you come to the studio ensures that you’ll have enough energy in the tank to get through your workout. Fruit is always a great option if you are concerned about getting an upset stomach. But once again everyone is different so experiment with what works best for you.

How quickly will I see the results from my training?

Most likely you will start to feel better before you really see the results. We always remind clients to celebrate everything along their fitness journey- whether it is lifting a heavier weight, recruiting the proper muscle groups or dropping/gaining inches. The more consistent you stay to your workout and nutrition plan the quicker you will see physical results.

What is the best diet for weight loss/weight gain?

There is no magic pill or diet. At the end of the day it is a very simple equation and that is calories in vs. calories out. If you would like to lose weight you need to eat fewer calories than you are burning. If you are looking to put on weight you want to eat more calories than you are burning.
