“Turkey is a great snack to opt for since it is loaded with protein, and turkey is considered a complete protein because it supplies all the essential amino acids our body needs,” says Young. “Not only that, but turkey contains a great source of B vitamins such as B3, B6, and B12, which are essential for energy production, brain function, and the formation of red blood cells. Turkey is also rich in minerals such as selenium, iron, zinc, and phosphorus, which all promote thyroid function, immunity, energy production, and bone health.”

To add even more to your turkey snack, make a simple turkey roll-up. Just grab sliced turkey, roll it up either on its own or with lettuce and cheese, and you’re set!


10. Refried black bean dip & chips

  • Protein: 8 grams

When you need a savory snack that contains both fiber and protein to keep you full, try some refried black beans with a side of crunchy tortilla chips or veggie sticks! In two-thirds of a cup of refried black beans, you’ll get 8 grams of plant-based protein and 8 grams of fiber.

If you’re not used to eating beans or legumes regularly, you may want to ease into incorporating black beans into your diet. This is because eating too much fiber at once can cause bloating and stomach discomfort.
