Snackspiration: Protein Power

Created January 10, 2017
Never underestimate the power of a smart protein snack to get you through the day. We’ve got 8 of them to keep you full and on top of your game from sun up to sun down.

Edamame Guacamole: Edamame is a surprising source of protein; one cooked cup has 17 grams. Try it on its own (boiled in the shell) with a sprinkle of salt, or add it to your favorite dip for an extra snack-time pick-me-up. We can’t get enough of this Edamame Guacamole.

Cottage Cheese with Fruit & Nuts:
Looking or a mega-protein boost to get you through your mid-morning slump? Cottage cheese packs 25 grams of protein per cup! Add fresh blueberries, peaches plus a handful of sliced almonds for crunch and a punch of flavor.

Turkey, Cheese and Pretzel Roll-Ups: With a double hit of protein from both the turkey and the cheese, these simple snacks are just the thing to tide you over until dinner. Just cut a cheese stick in half the long way, combine with a pretzel rod, wrap in a slice or two of turkey and enjoy!

Protein Granola Bar:
Nature Valley Coconut Almond Protein Bars combine roasted peanuts, almonds and toasted coconut flakes to create delicious chewy snack with a satisfying crunch that is packed with 10g of protein.

Chocolate-Banana “Ice Cream”: We don’t know what’s more surprising about this delicious Chocolate Banana Soft Serve Parfait, that it packs 24 grams of protein or that it’s made from frozen bananas. Our favorite part—and where the bulk of the protein comes from—is the Yoplait Greek 100 vanilla yogurt and Nature Valley oats 'n dark chocolate protein granola toppings. Load ‘er up!

No-Bake Protein Cookies: Take your protein on the go with our easy-to-make No-Bake Chewy Fiber One® Protein Cookies (no oven required!). Bonus: one batch will last you all week.

Greek Yogurt:
Another of our favorite grab-and-go options, Yoplait Greek 100 yogurt is an easy snack at any time of day (or night!).

Hard-Boiled Eggs:
It’s hard to downplay the wonder of hard-boiled eggs. They’re simple to make, easy to pack and mess-free when it comes time to chow down.
