Looking for a healthy snack that's not processed, loaded with fat and lacking sufficient protein?
Our dietitians have put together some of their favourite high-protein snacks, all under 300 kcal (for those of you that are interested)! In most cases, these snacks require minimal preparation, are small and easy to bring with you out of the house & are delicious! There's something for everyone!
If you're tight for time and have to grab something on the go, make sure to read the nutritional labels! And if the nutritional information is not available, that is NOT a good sign. Pay special attention to the fat, carbohydrates and protein, targeting snacks with minimal (or none) sugar, saturated or trans fats, and those which are higher in protein (>10g). Reading the nutritional labels is the key to understanding what you are consuming...and just because there is "LOW FAT" on the front (for example), doesn't mean it is a healthy option!
You'll find that these types of quick snacks can be hard to find, which is why it is always better to plan ahead!
