    I like Yves veggie dogs. 45 calories each and 8 grams of protein. String cheese is 80 calories and the same amount of protein.

    I love to snack. Please help. I don't know how many more boiled eggs or how much more cheese I can eat.

    i came across these "egg muffins"

    Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. ...
    Crack the eggs into a large bowl. ...
    Add the spinach, bacon and cheese to the egg mixture and stir to combine.
    Divide the egg mixture evenly among the muffin cups.
    Bake for 15-18 minutes or until eggs are set.
    Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator until ready to eat.

    Unfortunately they actually don’t have a lot of protein for the amount of calories. 163 calories of almonds will only give you 6g of protein. They do have a lot of healthy fats though if you need more of those in your diet.

    I drink premier protein shakes. They’ve delicious and inexpensive. They come in many flavors too. The caramel is my favorite.

    Also, they have 30 grams of protein, 160 calories, and I think 1 net carb.

    Starkist tuna paks with a multitude of flavors are sooooo good! Sweet and spicy as well as thai chili and lemon dill are my faves! They run 70 to 110 cal. Per packet!

    $1 a pack is a bargain too!

    When I began my weight loss journey, I found that I was hungry all the time, like real hunger pains. I knew I needed something that was high in protein to keep me satisfied and full and I came up with this protein snack/meal that was easy to make and even easier to take with me (I also use it as a side sometimes with chicken or fish). I also knew I needed something that had flavor and felt like a hearty meal/snack.

    I call them Mediterranean Protein Cups
    • 1 can of Light Red Kidney Beans (drained & rinsed)
    • 1 can of Black Eyed Peas (drained & rinsed)
    • 1 can of Black Beans (drained & rinsed)
    • 1 container (4 ounces or more), Crumbled Feta Cheese (you can use regular or light or even fat free)
    • 1/2 medium Red Sweet Bell Pepper - diced
    • 1/2 medium Orange Bell Pepper - diced
    • 2 Tablespoons (16g), Sliced Ripe Olives
    • 1/4 to 1/3 of a bottle of Fat Free Mediterranean or Italian Dressing (you can add more once you have your items all mixed and you think you need more)
    • 1 can of Sweet Corn
    • 1/2 cup of cooked couscous (any flavor, I use garlic or parmesan flavored)

    mix all the ingredients together and then add the Italian dressing gradually, stirring in between until you have the consistency you like. Add in some dried basil, sprinkle of salt/seasoning salt, pepper, oregano, onion powder, garlic powder - whatever you like to make this the taste you want, just go easy on the salting.

    I would refrigerate the mixture overnight (it is best to do this to soften up the beans a bit) and then put them in individual containers. I would grab 1 for work every day, this recipe really saved me on those hungry days! Depending on the ingredients you choose (this one was with fat free Italian dressing & regular feta cheese), different brands, adding or omitting certain ingredients for preference and the amount of servings, (you can do 8 or 16 servings) the nutrition is approximately:
    8 servings: 87 cals/ 2 grams of fat/ 5.5 grams of fiber/ 6 grams of protein
    16 servings: 174 cals/ 4 grams of fat/ 11 grams of fiber/ 12 grams of protein

    I eat this cold, but if you want to heat it up, I am sure it is just as good!
