Everyone loves beef jerky. It’s quick and requires no preparation — outside of buying and eating the hearty treat. Jerky made from lean meats like turkey or beef is a convenient and portable snack that is high in protein and low in carbohydrates — just be sure to choose varieties low in added sugars and sodium.

Bulk up your greek yogurt for a filling and delicious snack.

Yogurt is not only rich in protein but also loaded with probiotics, which are extremely beneficial for overall health.

“Eating yogurt regularly, at least two cups (three servings) per week, may reduce the risk of type-2 diabetes according to limited scientific evidence,” according to a qualified health claim recently announced by the FDA.

For additional nutritional value, yogurt can be paired with fresh berries and oats, making it a delicious and filling snack option.

Hard-boiled eggs make a great grab-n-go snack.

Hard-boiled eggs are a handy snack rich in protein and vitamin D. They can be prepared in advance and stored in the fridge, so you don’t have to waste time cooking every time you need a quick fix. They can be enjoyed on their own or seasoned with a sprinkle of salt and pepper for added flavor. Plus, you get two snacks in one because boiled eggs can easily be turned into egg salad.

Yes, you can eat cottage cheese and its fire!

Cottage cheese might not sound like the most exciting snack, but when topped with pineapples or other fresh fruit, it transforms into a delicious and satisfying treat that'll help control your cravings. The combination of protein from the cottage cheese and fiber from the fruit helps keep you feeling full and energized for longer periods, making it an ideal choice for busy days or as a pre-bedtime snack.

Try tuna with bread or whole grain crackers.

Opting for tuna on whole-grain crackers offers several benefits for those looking to nourish their bodies effectively. Tuna is packed with protein, which is crucial for muscle repair and growth. This makes it an excellent choice for replenishing energy levels post-workout. Pairing it with whole-grain crackers adds a satisfying crunch and introduces carbohydrates that provide energy to keep you going throughout the day.

Throw in some roasted chickpeas for the win!
