Wittig Weekly: The Best ‘On the Go’ Protein Snacks - KAGED MUSCLE

The key to winning the day nutrition wise is to always be prepared for any situation you may find yourself. Plan ahead for any potential schedule change or roadblock to keeping your nutrition on track then pack ahead of time accordingly. One question I get asked often is regarding suitable snacks. I typically keep my snacks protein based for several reasons. I have particular macros that I aim to hit daily (higher protein, low fat, moderate carbs) and protein based snacks help me keep my daily protein higher while keeping fat low and not raising my carbs too high. Protein based snacks will keep you feeling fuller for longer helping you from overeating the wrong things. I aim to bring in around 20-25 grams of protein per snack. Here are five of my 'go-to' protein based snacks:

  1. Beef Jerky: Find a kind that has more protein than sugar/carbs. Not all beef jerky is equal.
  2. Turkey Roll Ups: Use 3 slices of low fat deli turkey and one slice of low-fat cheese and roll it up. I will typically make two of these at a time.
  3. Greek Yogurt Parfait: Use 1 cup of non-fat greek yogurt. Add your own layers of mixed berries and granola.
  4. Almonds: Watch the serving size and keep it no more than ~22 almonds. This is a great snack, but is also high in fat even though it's the good kind.
  5. Protein shake: A high quality whey isolate by Kaged Muscle delivers 25g of protein while low in fat and carbs. As always Kaged Muscle products have no artificial colors or flavors. These are great to have on hand for any tight situation when you cannot get to food or don't have time to eat.
