Experts Advise High-Protein Snacks To Eat On the Go

McKenzie Hall, RD, co-founder of NourishRDs.com said, consuming high-protein food and snacks can help a person feel more satisfied in between meals compared to having more of fat or carbohydrates.

McKenzie Hall said, "Many protein sources also contain other good-for-you nutrients, such as healthy fats in nut butters, fiber in hummus or calcium in dairy." It is a human body's all-around nutrient star that can be a muscle builder, metabolism booster and appetite stabilizer.

Inclusion of high-protein snacks into a person's daily diet with at least eight grams of protein and less than four kinds od ingredients in it, is  still considered a healthy food intake.

The healthy-living blogger behind TheBigMansWorld.com, Arman Liew, developed a no-bake bar that sneaks protein powder into the batter.

Arman Liew said, "The key is using a good protein powder you enjoy on its own," says Liew. "I find that a plant-based or casein protein powder works best, and you can never go wrong with adding some nuts or peanut butter for a dose of healthy fats!"

Alissa Rumsey, RD, CSCS stated, a higher-calorie snack of nature's sweetest fruits pairs deliciously with creamy, high-protein nut butter is perfect for active people or pregnant women. The snack will add about 300 extra calories a day.

Alissa Rumsey encourages snacks composed of high-protein yogurt and granola choose those "with less than 10 grams of sugar and at least three grams of fiber," and look for a short ingredients list like a whole grain, i.e., oats, whole wheat, barley. All a protein-packed snack that has 270 calories and 24 grams of protein.

Kathy Siegel, M.S., RDN, nutrition consultant for Manitoba Harvest said a good snack bar that has 231 calories and eight grams of protein is Hemp Hearts & Coconut Bar which is made of plant-based protein that's packed with omega-3 fatty acids, omega-6 fatty acids and fiber.
