13. Canned Salmon
Canned salmon is an excellent source of protein and can be taken with you wherever. There are 8 g of protein in one ounce. It is also high in other nutrients, such as niacin, vitamin B12 and selenium.
Additionally, salmon contains omega-3 fatty acids, which are anti-inflammatory and may lower your heart disease risk, depression and dementia.
Add some flavoring to your canned salmon to make it extra delicious. We recommend squeezing a lemon on it and seasoning it with salt and pepper. It can also be used as a dip when paired with crackers or vegetables.
12. Chia Pudding
Over the years, chia pudding has become an increasingly popular snack. Not only is it high in protein, but it also contains other nutrients such as calcium, manganese and phosphorus. It is delicious and healthy!
Chia is known for its high omega-3 fatty acid content, providing many health benefits, including lowering triglyceride levels and reducing heart disease risk.
Making it is simple. Just combine chia seeds with milk and allow the mixture to sit for a few hours. Once it has a pudding-like consistency, add your desired flavorings and top it off with fruit.
11. Homemade Granola
Granola can be a great, healthy snack if made correctly. Many store-bought granola brands contain copious amounts of added sugar. So, we suggest making your own granola at home by combing rolled oats, nuts, chia seeds and a sweetener such as honey.
Many types of granola contain at least 4 g of protein per ounce! It is easy to overdo it with this delicious snack because it is higher in calories. Try to stick to about 1/4 cup.
