Ok, so I need to include more proteins in my diet.

I am fine with my main meals - Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner - but I am kinda clueless as to what proteins I can eat as snacks.

What do you eat and how much of it??

What do you eat as snacks now?

I sometimes eat roasted chickpeas as a snack or almond butter (or just almonds) with a piece of fruit or some celery. I'll also sometimesmake a quinoa/black bean salad which is full of protein and eat that as an afternoon snack.

As snacks now I usually eat a price of fruit, veggies or yoghurt - but I need to include more protein at my snack times

I think anything can be a snack, even if it's a piece of meat- which I have done.

Hard boiled eggs are a good snack, I keep a few in my fridge at work. :) I'll also do peanut butter with an apple, or some tuna as well.

If you like shakes you can make them and add protein powder as well :)

I eat south beach protein bars, edemame, and string cheese (sometimes wrapped in meat) for snacks

Water packed tuna can be a good snack with half a dozen crackers. It's a really good go-to protein food.
