I'm just starting out and finding it tough to go between meals without a low calorie snack, preferably high protein, but so far I'm finding myself eating fruits.

    Things I tend to eat!

    A pack of bumble bee tuna (sometimes flavored) with 2 tbs Fage 0% Greek yogurt. Like tuna salad but very low calorie and high protein.

    Turkey sausage sticks. I forgot the brand, but you get two for 80 cals.

    Chobani flips. Around 180 calories for an extremely satisfying, high protein snack.

    Little Quaker oatmeal bowls. Very low calorie and I like the apple cinnamon flavor.

    Cucumbers/carrots with hummus or Bolthouse Greek yogurt ranch

    Fruit! Of any kind. Watch the calories, some fruit is really high but usually it’s safe.

    Rice cake spread with a bit of peanut butter. Do measure your peanut butter, it’s very high in calories and it’s easy to overdo it.

    Popcorn! Skinny pop is great. Very high volume food for very low calories.

    Mini pickles c:

    Deviled eggs made with 0% Greek yogurt instead of mayo

    Sliced cucumbers and radishes soaked for a bit in rice vinegar. LOVE these.

    Reminder to weigh your food for accurate calorie counts. Don’t eyeball it. And ofc drink tons of water. Congrats on starting out!

    Yoghurt filled with chia and linseeds. You can get super-high protein yoghurts too that contain >20% protein.

    Make sure you are choosing foods you enjoy!
    If I’m feeling a little low on protein,
    I’ll try to sneak in:
    -smart dog
    - chicken tenderloin ( I usually batch cook some once a week, so for about 4/7 days it’s cooked in the fridge)
    - eggs 😍
    - Cottage cheese (i really like Large curd, but can’t stand the small curd/lf versions)
    - Plain Greek yogurt... if I’m feeling fancy or want to boost the protein/ nutrients, I’ll add hemp seeds, chia, flaxseeds, nuts, pepitas, pb2, etc.
    - Edamame
    - popcorn with nutritional yeast (and hot sauce! 😋)
    - vegs with hummus (if you have a food processor or wide based blender, it’s super easy to make your own once a week or as often as you want)

    If you already gravitate toward fruit, perhaps throw some I a Greek yogurt parfait or pair with some nut butters.

    Fruit and a bit of reduced fat cheese. Usually grapes, apples or pear. Also apples and plain yogurt

    Skinny pop; Celery, carrots, cucumber with hummus; Strawberries with a tablespoon of dark chocolate hummus; low sodium deli turkey rolled up; low fat string cheese; raspberries and/or blueberries with 1/3 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt (sweetened with stevia); celery with tbsp peanut butter

    Baby carrots! About 10 of them is 35 calories or so. Or when I'm jonesing for salty, a low-fat string cheese (store brand) and the suggested serving of some turkey pepperoni (about 17 slices) for a total of 150 calories.

    I like vita-weets with a thin slice of cheese and vegemite.
    A boiled egg
    Cheese and a few crackers.
    Corn thins and a slice of turkey and lettuce.
    Small potato baked in foil no oil, and light yoghurt. Sweet potato might be alright too.
