Six savory High-Protein Snacks in 10 minutes

  1. Hard-Boiled Eggs: Two large hard-boiled eggs provide approximately 12 grams of protein.
  2. Cottage Cheese: Half a cup (113 grams) of cottage cheese contains approximately 15-20 grams of protein, depending on the brand. I like Good Culture lactose free. Its less sodium and is high in protein.
  3. Tuna Salad: A small can of tuna (approximately 85 grams) mixed with Greek yogurt or mayonnaise can provide around 25 grams of protein.
  4. Jerky: A 50-gram serving of beef or turkey jerky can contain 25-30 grams of protein. I love Lorissa’s Kitchen jerky and always take it when I travel.
  5. Roasted Chickpeas: A cup (164 grams) of roasted chickpeas contains approximately 15 grams of protein.
  6. Edamame: A cup (155 grams) of roasted edamame contains about 17 grams of protein. It takes about 10 minutes in the air fryer and is a crunchy treat.

Protein content may vary slightly depending on the brand and specific product you choose, so it’s always a good idea to check the labels for accurate information.
