High Protein Snacks You Can Fit in Your Purse

Protein keeps you full, helps with digestion and contributes to building muscle. We have our favorites and are favorite vegan options. Keep these in you purse or backpack for a quick and nutritious snack.

Protein Bars:

These snacks are obviously packed with protein which will provide you with nutrients and keep you feeling full longer. They are also small and can conveniently be stored anywhere.

Our Favorite: Paleo Protein Bars

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Vegan Option:

Lara Bar: Each bar contains no more than 9 whole food ingredients, including fruits, nuts, and spices. No sugar is added. There are a number of flavors that are vegan-friendly.

 

 

 

 

 

Almond Butter: 

Almond butter is full of fat like peanut butter, but its unsaturated fat is in favor as good fat especially for your heart providing slow sustained release of energy. 2 tablespoons of almond butter contains 7 grams of protein.
