We all know protein is important for our health. It’s important for everything from oxygenating blood to healing. Heck, people plan entire meals around getting enough protein. But many forget how important it can be between meals.
Carbs are definitely a quick source of energy. But protein takes longer to break down than carbohydrates, meaning protein provides a longer-lasting source of energy. In fact, a lack of protein can leave you fatigued.
That’s why we like to keep a stash of protein-rich store-bought snacks on hand at home and at work as a quick way to keep our reserves up during the day. But fast protein-rich snacks don’t have to be spoonful-of-peanut-butter boring.
From organic eggs dunked in an unusually flavorful crunchy dip to protein-rich versions of your favorite saliferous snackables to the chip aisle staple you didn’t know was a protein powerhouse, these are the best store-bought protein-packed snacks.
