On-the-Go Protein Snacks

If you’re short on time but still want to get a good dose of protein, there are loads of options to choose from. Here are some of our favorite easy snacks:

Cottage Cheese

Cottage cheese is not only high in protein, but also selenium, vitamins, phosphorus, potassium, and calcium. This nutritious snack helps maintain bone health, manage your blood sugar, aid in muscle recovery and may contribute to thyroid health.[2] It’s a low-calorie, high-protein snack that is easy to keep stocked for when you need a quick bite.

Hard-Boiled Eggs

Tasty, easy to prepare, and incredibly nutritious; what more could you ask for? Eggs contain about 6g of high-quality protein for only 72 calories and 5g of fat. They offer a wealth of benefits, including health-supporting nutrients like lutein and zeaxanthin.[3] Eat them plain or with a sprinkle of salt and pepper.


A handful of almonds is rich in protein, fiber, healthy fats, vitamin E, magnesium, potassium and phosphorus. Reach for raw almonds rather than seasoned ones, which may contain unhealthy oils, and high salt and sugar content. Almonds can contribute to important bodily functions like cell growth, supporting a healthy immune system and energy production.[4]

Trail Mix

Trail mix can be a healthy, high-protein snack, but you have to be mindful of its ingredients. Choose trail mix that includes a blend of dried fruits, nuts and seeds without high-sodium seasoning and add-ins like candy. Better yet, make your own trail mix with almonds, pumpkin seeds, dark chocolate, dried fruits, cashews and sunflower seeds.
