Fuel Your Body with These 20 Simple Protein-Packed Snack Ideas

Welcome to Haren Holistics, where we bring to you healthy and delicious snack ideas that are rich in protein. These snacks are not just loaded with the goodness of protein but also contain a balanced mix of carbs and fats. The best part is, each snack provides approximately 15g of protein to keep your energy levels high throughout the day.


I always recommend plugging your specific foods and ingredients into the Cronometer app to get accurate macro and micronutrient amounts as different ingredients and brands will differ in nutrient makeup.

Why High Protein?

A high protein diet can help immensely with blood sugar regulation, satiation, muscular function, and nutrient absorption. It also offers metabolic advantages and benefits such as weight management, glycemic regulation, and bone health (Pasiakos SM. J Food Sci. 2015 Mar;80 Suppl 1:A2-7. doi: 10.1111/1750-3841.12804. PMID: 25757894).


Please note, ideal macros will vary from individual to individual. It is recommended to work with a qualified practitioner to address ideal & individualized nutrient intake goals.
