I've read that eating a protein with a carb is beneficial and will keep you hungrier longer. Is there a good "ratio" of protein to carb when snacking? For example, a bag of 100-cal popcorn has 19 g of carbs and a 100-cal pack of almonds has 4 g of protein. I was going to eat these together (and still probably will :)), but is there a happy "mix" amount of carbs and protein for a snack? Is that amount of protein too low for a protein snack to mix with that amount of carbs?
