The Top Premade High-Protein, Low-Carb Snacks
Unless you’re trying to build serious muscle, you’re probably not planning to load up on carbohydrates (we’ve found that it usually happens unknowingly since high levels of carbs can be found in many unexpected foods, including ones that provide us with protein). This is the case for some of our favorite energizing on-the-go options, which is why we’ve been on the lookout for the best high-protein, low-carb snacks out there to feast on instead. While conducting our search, another key characteristic we kept in mind was that each item should be easily packable for our busy lifestyles (and only a handful should have to be refrigerated).
But why are we so obsessed with injecting protein into our diet? Well, we need it for a whole lot more than just keeping us full between meals. According to Josh Axe, DNM, DC, CNS, protein also “keeps our metabolism running, our energy up, and our blood sugar levels stable.” It can be tricky to find foods that fulfill our protein requirements and don’t require cooking. Fortunately, we’ve found 10 delicious high-protein, low-carb snacks that taste as good on your morning commute as they do at the kitchen table. Scroll down to see our favorites.
