8 Easy High Protein Snacks
Do you get enough protein? I bet that question comes up often if you are plant-based. But if you eat a varied diet, you probably do. To help you along, though, here are 9 protein recipes that use protein ingredients that supply nearly all the essential amino acids your body needs to keep things growing and running smoothly.
What Do You Need To Make These High Protein Snacks
Protein sources such as beans, spirulina, nuts and seeds are the main protein sources in these super easy recipes, most of which are two and three ingredients only. The resulting snacks make perfect workout or energizer treats to store in the freezer and grab-and-go!
For example, spirulina supplies 8 grams of protein per 2 tbsp, and white beans supply 24 grams per cup. You can always add chia seeds (4 grams per 2 tbsp) and hemp seeds 11 grams per 2 tbsp) to up the protein further.
