Default Interesting snacks!?

Hello!

For the past 2 months, I've been taking yoghurts to work. I used to eat 2 a day. Recently they are making me feel really sick! Like, if I saw another yoghurt I would hurl!

Anyone have any good ideas for high - protein snacks that I can just bung in my bag for work? Cheese sometimes has a similar hurling effect!

Well, I've just finished an apple and a few spoonfuls of cottage cheese. That's what I have in the morning (works OK) and in the afternoon (does not work very well - isn't satisfying enough). I have tried an apple (that bit always works) and a few nuts but the number of nuts started to creep up after a while.

I need inspiration too.

Oooh nuts, they're nice! I count out 18 cashew nuts then put the rest away! Could only really eat them once a day cos of the fat content (even though it's full of good fat!)

Totally munch on apples all the time! It's the protein I need, short of chewing on a steak 10am and 3pm I'm a bit short on ideas! I like a protein shake but I tend to either have them for brekky or if I have cals left over at the end of the day! Plus they're a bit messy 4 work!

I always bake a batch of protein muffins and have one a 4 pm.

Here are some protein muffin recipes:

Banana Nut Muffins

Ingredients

1 cup dry old-fashioned oatmeal, ground to flour in a blender or food processor
4 scoops vanilla protein powder (I use HDT Problend 55 Alpine Vanilla or Milk Chocolate: 27 g. protein and 135 calories per scoop)
2 t Baking powder
1/4 tsp Baking Soda
1 T cinnamon
dash of nutmeg
************************
2 med ripe bananas
1 egg
4 egg whites
1/2 cup natural applesauce
1 t vanilla
1/3 c splenda
1/4 c chopped walnuts

Procedure

Mix dry ingredients and wet separately. Add wet to dry stuff, mix up. spoon into muffin tin that has been sprayed with Pam.
Bake at 350 for 20 minutes...or less, I like them browned on top.
I wrap each and freeze in a freezer bag.
Make 12 sm. muffins or 6 large ones. One of the large ones counts as a meal for me (I eat 5 meals a day).
Nutritional Information for the whole batch:
Fat: 35g
Calories: 1446
Protein: 147g

Carrot Muffins

Ingredients

1 cup dry old-fashioned oatmeal, ground to flour in a blender or food processor
4 scoops vanilla protein powder (I use HDT Problend 55 Alpine Vanilla:27 g. protein and 135 calories per scoop)
2 teaspoons Baking powder
1/4 tsp Baking Soda
1 T cinnamon
dash of nutmeg
************************
1 cup grated carrot
1 egg
4 egg whites
2/3 cup natural applesauce
1 t vanilla
1/3 c Splenda
1/4 c chopped walnuts

Procedure

Mix dry ingredients and wet separately. Add wet to dry stuff, mix up. spoon into muffin tin that has been sprayed with Pam.

Pumpkin Muffins

Ingredients

1 cup dry old-fashioned oatmeal, ground to flour in a blender or food processor
4 scoops vanilla protein powder (I use HDT Problend 55 Alpine Vanilla:27 g. protein and 135 calories per scoop)
2 teaspoons Baking powder

1 egg

Mix dry ingredients and wet separately. Add wet to dry stuff, mix up. spoon into muffin tin that has been sprayed with Pam.
Bake at 350 for 20 minutes...or less, I like them browned on top.

These freeze easily and are a super portable meal! I have one almost every day for my 4 pm meal because it's something that I can eat while I'm working.


They are also good as a "bring along" for yourself when you know everyone else is going to be eating cookies or danish during a meeting when you should be eating a healthy meal or snack.

Excellent! I do make those from time to time, sometimes I just can't be bothered! I suppose I should just make a HUGE batch and freeze them!

Ilene's pancake. I've found it very portable. I have it with yogurt or applesauce or a fruit .....

A recent episode of "Good Eats" was devoted to home made protein bars and other snacks: "Power Trip"

I love tofurky jerky, if you can get it in your area. Regular beef jerky tends to have too much fat, but veggie jerky usually has great nutritionals.

for me a 1/2 cup of cottage cheese mixed with a 1/2 cup of pineapple bits is a really good snack

Yep. I love cottage cheese too with frozen strawberries and splenda, I don't even need a fridge, I just let them thaw at my desk...

I just made oatmeal with soy milk and added raisins and cinnamon. To boost the protein, I stirred in 1/2 c plain non-fat yogurt and a little splenda - yum!!! Who knew 2 min in the microwave could be so good. I use McCains quick-cooking oatmeal and divide a box into 1/2 c servings in a plastic bag. I buy the soy milk in the juice-box size (8 in a package - 1c each - no need to refrigerate). Grab one of each as I run out the door. No excuse not to have a health post-workout meal.

Ellen, I just use "regular" oatmeal (OldFashioned) and mix 1/2 cup with a cup of water or milk and nuke it 2 minutes, then let it sit a minute or so. Works great. Love it with walnuts and raisins and splenda and just a splash of milk.
