11. Cheese and apple slices

If you’re craving a combination of savory and sweet, Goodson suggests two mozzarella cheese sticks and an apple for a protein and nutrient boost. “With 14 grams of high-quality protein plus calcium, cheese is an excellent way to get protein at snack time, and paired with a large apple that contains four to five grams of fiber, the snack packs two food groups and will help you stay satisfied,” says Goodson. “Plus, cheese sticks are individually packaged and easy to eat on the go.”


12. Protein bar

  • Protein: 12 grams

When you need something you can take on the go with hardly any effort, a protein bar can be a helpful option. However, not all protein bars are created equal, and some are made with more sugar than anything. One protein bar we love is the 88 Acres Banana Bread bar, which has 12 grams of protein and only four grams of added sugar.
