Snacks that are a good source of protein are a great way to make sure your metabolism is working all of the time, even between meals. Small protein-based snacks can keep you nourished and stop you from feeling hangry (hungry+angry) between meals since they take longer to digest than other foods.
When people think of protein-rich foods, animal products come to mind. These protein foods are important, but they can be consumed in smaller quantities, paving the way for a more plant-based protein diet. For years we’ve known about the benefits of eating a more plant-based diet. Consider replacing some of your animal protein intake with more of the following: beans/legumes, nuts and nut butters, seeds, and higher-protein grains like quinoa. As with any special diet, it’s important to keep in mind that the amount of protein that you need each day varies depending on your size, your gender, and your activity level.
