Sometimes you don’t have the time to make yourself a snack and need to reach into your fridge and grab something quick. For a quick high-protein snack, grab two hard-boiled eggs. “Hard-boiled eggs are a convenient and portable snack that is high in protein and easy to prepare,” says Best. Even if you’re only hungry for one egg, “A large hard-boiled egg still contains about 6 grams of protein.”


4. Greek yogurt

  • Protein: ~22.7 grams

Just because a snack is sweet doesn’t mean it can’t be loaded with protein. Goodson suggests grabbing about 6 ounces of Greek yogurt and topping it with 1/2 cup of blueberries and 1/3 cup of whole grain protein granola.

“With 14-17 grams of high-quality protein from Greek yogurt, depending on the brand, plus five grams of protein from whole grain protein granola, this snack boasts around 20 grams of protein,” says Goodson. “Plus, the blueberries and granola add about four grams of fiber, which means this snack contains three food groups and is both satisfying and quick to eat.”
