High-Protein, Nutritionist-Approved Snacks To Keep You Full

17 Oct

Who doesn’t love a good snack?

Problem is, if you’re not careful, the snacking never stops. Unless you pick the right snack, that is — something tasty enough to quell your cravings and satisfying enough to keep you from coming back for more.

The key may be protein. In a 2012 study, University of Missouri researchers found that among healthy women, those who ate a high-protein snack (defined as one containing 24 grams of the good stuff) felt full for longer than women who ate medium- or low-protein snacks.

“Twenty-four grams of protein is more than some people have in a meal,” Elizabeth M. Ward, RD, tells The Huffington Post. “Snacks with that much protein will have substantial calories, and people need to account for that.”

Dawn Jackson Blatner, RDN, combines cinnamon, cottage cheese and grapes for an easy snack that packs in 26 grams of protein.

Two pieces of deli turkey rolled with two pieces of reduced-fat Swiss cheese will give you those 24 grams, says Katherine Brooking, MS, RD, of Appetite for Health.

Elisa Zied, MS, RDN, CDN, author of the upcoming book, Younger Next Week, recommends mixing 1 cup of nonfat yogurt with 1.5 ounces of chopped almonds for about 21 grams of protein.
