We originally shared this post last year, but we wanted to share it again, and make some updates to it since we get a lot of questions about what our favorite snacks and protein bars are. We tend to love eating fruits, vegetables, lean proteins like eggs, chicken, steak, fish, etc, but we definitely like to snack on stuff and have a MAJOR sweet tooth!
Here are our go-to snacks:We always go for something with protein and carbs together. The protein is super important because it keeps you full! We get our carbs from mostly fruits and vegetables, but also love toast, granola, etc.
As far as some of our favorite protein powders, we have a hard time with Whey protein powder most of the time, but here are some of our favorites:
- Protizyme Peanut Butter Cookie and Protizyme Chocolate Cake
- Ancient Nutrition Bone Broth (these are Dairy Free)
- MRM Veggie Elite Chocolate Mocha (not bad for vegan)
- MRM Veggie Elite Cinnamon (haven’t tried this one, but next on our list)
- Collagen Peptides
We have also gotten a ton of questions about which protein bars are our favorite. We almost always go for Quest protein bars because they’re lower in carbs, high in protein, and high in fiber. We love them toasted in the oven for a few minutes because they get crispy on the outside. You can also put them in the microwave for 10-20 seconds.
Here are some other favorite snack ideas:
Although this isn’t really a “snack”, we both tend to eat this as a snack/meal any time of day. We will prep grilled chicken at the beginning of the week with veggies. We love roasted carrots and brussels sprouts!
This is also another snack/meal for us. This is a HUGE salad from Snappy Salads with grilled chicken.
We have this chocolate mug cake for dessert a lot of nights. It has a ton of protein in it and is super easy to make! Recipe HERE!
