It’s time to start enjoying your snack more and start feeling good again!
1. Protein Shakes
One of the most accessible high protein low carb, high protein snacks is a protein shake, which contains around 24g of protein per serve (depending on the brand).
You can get protein powders that have virtually no carbs or fats at all, strictly protein.
To add more protein and fats to a shake, you can mix it with half nut milk and half water. A few berries can also make a big difference to the flavor.
The best part of a protein shake is you can drink it in just a few minutes, or take it with you on the go. They come in handy for those with crazy busy lifestyles.
Fry them, boil them, poach them, scramble them, add them to a smoothie. Eggs are one of the favorite low-carb, high protein snacks for many people, and there are good reasons for it.
One boiled egg contains 13g of protein and only 1g of carbohydrates. Throw a few of these in your day, and you’re going to have a full tummy as well as a low carb snack.
Eggs also have a vast amount of health benefits and contain some disease-fighting nutrients. Is it time for a cooked breakfast yet?
Tinned tuna and salmon are great high protein snacks! You can get most of them already seasoned, and they taste amazing. That’s if you like eating fish.
You can even add a tin of tuna/salmon to your salad lunch for an extra bit of protein to power you through the day.
A 95g tin of tuna contains around 15g of protein with less than 1g of carbohydrate, no wonder it’s so popular on a no-carb diet.
Tinned is convenient, but it doesn’t nearly compare to fresh fish with a meal.
4. Dark Chocolate
We seem to write a fair amount about dark chocolate here, and it’s not just because it tastes delicious, it’s good for you too.
When buying, opt for the higher cacao percentage as this is better for you and will contain less added ingredients. You will also need to sift through a few brands and look for the one with low the lowest carbs.
100g of 85% dark chocolate contains roughly 12.5g of protein.
Jerky is a little more controversial than the other low carb, high protein snacks on this list. The reason being is that most commercial jerky contains other ingredients such as sugar that increases the carbohydrate content.
If you can find one or make your own that has little of these added ingredients, jerky is a perfect low carb, high protein snack.
Seasoned right, jerky can taste delicious and contain minimal carbs!
Nuts and nut butters are an excellent way to add in extra protein and healthy fats to your diet.
It’s as easy as smearing some almond butter onto your celery sticks for a mid-morning snack, or chucking a handful of cashews into a container for work.
Peanuts have the highest amount of protein with 2 tbsp containing 8g of protein.
7. Greek yogurt
Yum! Greek yogurt is the perfect high protein snack with low carb content.
To make this nutritious snack a full meal, add some low carb granola with a few berries.
Per cup of Greek yogurt, there are roughly 20 grams of protein.
