Everyone knows that protein has myriad health benefits. One gram of protein per pound of target body weight is a good starting point for a daily goal (talk with a coach to find a personalized protein target for your goals). Everyone also knows that it can be challenging to get in enough protein.
It has been a game-changer for me to have some go-to snacks on hand that are protein dense without being calorically dense.
Here they are, with links. (I have no affiliation with these brands, although if they’re reading this and want to send me money or free stuff: [email protected])
Biltong – Biltong is a South African dried beef (like jerky but better, less tough) that does not use nitrates or sugars in the curing process. And it is AMAZING! My favorite is the Hot & Spicy from Carnivore Meat Co)
Vermont Uncured Pepperoni Turkey Sticks (Amazon)
Two Good Yogurt (Kroger/Target)
Good Culture Cottage Cheese (Kroger/Target)
Fairlife Core Power High Protein Milk Shake (Amazon — I’ve also seen this at Wal-Mart). Convenience bonus: although it is better cold, it does not have to be refrigerated.
