High protein snacks can satisfy hunger, support weight loss goals, and taste delicious!
We talk a lot about protein here at Healthy Dining, especially lean protein. Not only is it just a smart choice as part of a healthy diet, but it can also be an ally for weight loss. Whether it’s eggs with veggies for breakfast, a chicken sandwich for lunch, or halibut and greens over grains for dinner, protein can help satisfy hunger, boost energy expenditure and more.
So, why not add in some high protein snacks between meals?
Protein-packed snacks can help you manage hunger throughout the day, especially when they include some of our other favorites: vegetables, fruits and whole grains. Start snacking smarter for weight loss by mixing and matching choices like these with fruits, vegetables, whole wheat crackers, air-popped popcorn, whole wheat tortillas and more:
- Nut butter
- Hardboiled egg
- Greek yogurt
- Roasted chickpeas
- String cheese
- Raw almonds or walnuts

Keep choices like these on hand for a quick grab-and-go snack when you need it most!
