    Default High protein snack ideas?

    I was looking for some easy high protein snacks that arenít full of carbs. I guess when I say snack itís really a meal because we canít each much. Iím just super bored of what Iíve been eating. Any idea would be awesome.

    Although "snacking" (limited to a couple times a day) for some people might (doesn't always) lead go "grazing" (nibbling all day long).

    All the WLS experts / advisors urge us to eat three meals a day and, if necessary, a few healthy (not processed food) protein-based snacks.

    For me, those kinds of "healthy" snacks include things like an apple with cheese, Greek yogurt, some grilled chicken, small amounts of nuts (they're very high calorie).

    I would gently caution you to stay away from anything that might have been trigger foods for you in the past and that have relatively little food value, e.g., crackers, pretzels, chips, "diet" cookies. But you probably weren't considering those anyway.

    My usual snack is Greek yogurt with a few peanuts and raisins, cheese with maybe 3 crackers, protein shake, applesauce. I also refer back to my "nutrition bible" which was the nutrition guidelines from my bariatric nutritionist.

    Nuts (good for you but watch the quantity), low-fat string cheese, greek yogurt (low fat/sugar), a hard boiled egg, fresh fruit, carrots or any other fresh veggies dipped in hummus. Protein bars but check the ingredients. Lots of possibilities. I can't just eat three meals a day, so do have a little snack between meals. I know it's best to stick to the meals, but with tiny meals and exercise I get hungry.

    My snacks (and I generally have 3 over the course of the day) are, light mini babybel cheese with some celery and carrot sticks, 1/2 an orange, or 1/2 cup watermelon and a couple of strawberries (it's summer here at the moment!). Not really high protein, but I well and truly get my protein requirements with my "meals" and I love fresh fruit. Other protein snacks that I have had are a thin rice cracker with almond butter, hard boiled egg, small tin lite tuna, 1/2 protein bar (we have a really good one here that for a full bar has 15g protein, 160 calories, 3g fat, 5g sugar, is gluten free and tastes great!).

    Hard boiled egg, small can of tuna, cooked meat/poultry etc, protein powder mixed with either cottage cheese, yoghurt or ricotta; almonds, cheese. You could also look at lentils and beans, and tempeh.
