When planning your healthy meals, keep in mind that 10 to 35 percent of your daily food intake should be lean protein. Be careful to avoid sodium- and sugar-filled brands, but low-sodium, natural, or lightly-flavored options are a great source of protein. Mixed nuts provide an easy way to get a delicious dose of protein in a convenient, shelf-stable package.
Inexpensive and loaded with nutrients, eggs are one of the best ways to get a healthy dose of protein. It might take an extra minute to prep, but combining these two high-protein treats is totally worth it. When it comes to protein shakes, the combinations are endless, and one scoop can go a long way! The only thing more fun than how much protein you can get from a serving of edamame (one cup offers about 17 grams of protein!) is getting to eat these little beans out of their bright green pods.
Each ball is just 92 calories (78 if you don’t use the chocolate chips) and has 3 grams of protein.


I never would have guessed there’d be so much protein in these with such normal ingredients. A one-ounce serving (the size of most single-serve packs) contains about 9 grams of protein! Try hard boiling and pre-peeling a dozen at the start of the week and throw one in a small Tupperware container each day for an easy on-the-go snack. Their classic varieties are a great source of protein thanks to their all-nut base (with around 5 grams per bar), but for an even higher dose of the good stuff, try KIND Plus varieties.
Blend 1 medium banana, 1 tablespoon of peanut butter, and 1 cup of chocolate milk with 1 cup of ice for a protein-packed pick-me-up.
Put 2 tablespoons of your favorite hummus in the bottom of the container, stick a handful of vegetable sticks (carrots, celery, and snow peas are a great mix) vertically in the hummus, screw on the top, and throw in a purse or gym bag for an easy, on-the-go, super-healthy snack.
But chocolate milk is actually a great source of high-quality protein (especially post-workout). In high school I would get home from swim practice and eat everything in sight, then eat dinner!


To get started, try these high-protein choices for healthy snacking and watch choices and portion size to keep carbohydrates down. Protein snacks are the perfect way to fill up just enough, and give us longer-lasting energy than the usual, carb-heavy options. The "Protein Creamsicle:" 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder, 1 cup orange juice, and 1 cup ice blended until smooth.
Just 1 ounce of sharp cheddar offers 8 grams of protein, and the contrast with sweet grapes is super sophisticated (and delicious). Lentils are great protein-packed legumes that are easy to turn into super, shelf-stable salads.
And also the "Star-buffs Shake:" 1 cup iced coffee (with ice) and 1 scoop chocolate whey protein, blended.
