Protein Snacks

I'm looking for ideas for protein snacks that travel well. Meaning no refrigeration needed or cooking. Thanks in advance!

Nuts! Peanuts, almonds, cashews, etc. Just, watch the serving size.

Also (along the same lines), peanut butter (sandwich, on crackers, etc.)

Beef jerkey.

Soy nuts, sunflower seeds, etc.

I really enjoy some of the South Beach bars - high protein and high fiber, not too many calories, and individually packaged. They are convenient, filling and stick with you. Honestly I don't work for them, but i am a big fan!

I second the motion on the South Beach bars. You have to be careful with things like nuts and jerkey because often they are loaded with salts and oils.

I'm a fan of the Fiber One Bars

The Fiber One Bars actually calculate to 3 pts for WW but they are just shy of 2 pts. They are 35% of your daily fiber and they are YUMMY. They almost taste like a candy bar.

An unusual protein snack is on the baby food aisle -- jars of Gerber Graduates Turkey Sticks. They're finger food for toddlers. They don' t need refrigeration and I think they taste pretty good.

Nuts do not need to be loaded with salt - just get unsalted. These are my favorite high protein snack. Roasted soy nuts are great too - look for ones with less salt. Little packs of soy milk that don't require refridgeration are handy also.

i've been on a Whole Food's fresh 'ground' almond butter kick lately. It's totally awesome. My protein snack used to be peanut butter, i ate a ton of it, but i started to notice that peanuts arent really the best nut for you. They're higher in fat and sodium than most other nuts and have switched over to mostly almonds. The only way to do nuts is to make sure you get unsalted/raw

i spread it liberally across a spoon the size of my mouth and lick it clean, then repeat 2-4 times =)

It's a lot more 'runny' than peanut butter cause it's more oily and there's no additives like sugar or salt or veggie oil thats used to thicken peanut butter up.

Roasted edename is really high in protein as well and satisfies the need for something crunchy.

High protein

I like to boil a couple eggs, pop out the yolk, and replace it with a few teaspoons of homemade hummas. I make the hummas in the blender with canned (and washed) chickpeas, black olives, lemon juice, olive oil (tablespoon) and fresh cilantro.

The simplest, easiest protein snack is a hard boiled egg. So easy, packed with good nutrients.

Here is a summary of what is known about hard boiled eggs, and some discussion about weight loss and hard boiled eggs:
