If you’re trying to lose weight, build muscle, or just start eating better, protein is your best friend. Not only is it responsible for repairing your muscles after a tough workout, but it can also help reduce your cravings between meals. A high protein snack can reduce the hormones that cause hunger, meaning you’re less likely to overeat at your next meal or scarf down that donut as you’re leaving the office.
The only downside is that protein is often coupled with high fat content, and the protein bars that try to avoid this throw in sugar and other fillers. We’ve put together a list of some of our favorite protein snacks that come in at under 150 calories.
