5 Protein Packed Snacks Perfect for On-the-Go!

Sharing is caring!

This post was sponsored by Weight Watchers as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.

At the start of every year I decide I am going to start some new diet and it always fails because I never stick to it. This year I tossed everything out the door and decided I would start with making better eating choices and making sure I actually eat. I can go half the day before I remember to eat some days or I am so busy I am just grabbing random junk and shoving it in my face. So to try and avoid that I try to make sure I have better food options on hand, meal plan, and have snacks ready to grab and eat. Protein is great for keeping you full longer, cutting back on hunger, and it a better choice than sugar and carb filled foods. One of my favorite sources of protein is cheese, especially string cheese.

String cheese is the perfect grab and go snack and Weight Watchers Light String Cheese allows for guilt free snacking. If you’re following the Weight Watchers program it’s just 1 smart point, which is a wonderful thing. Weight Watcher String Cheese is filing, delicious, made from real milk, and they’re individually wrapped which makes snacking on the go convenient and easy. String cheese is great on it’s own or paired with other things like meat, eggs, and nuts.

Here are 5 of my favorite protein filled snacks that are great for snacking on the go or when you need an afternoon pick me up. They help me to avoid junk food, fill me up, and help to me to stay on track with healthier food options!

String Cheese + Jerky OR String cheese wrapped in deli meat

String Cheese + Hard Boiled Egg

String Cheese + Trail Mix

Yogurt + Granola

Protein Bar 

My advice is to look at labels when you’re shopping. Look for items that are low in sugar and sodium and the higher protein, the better. All of these delicious snacks can be portioned out into small containers or bags for the week and they’re ready to go for when you need a quick, but healthy snack. Toss them in your purse, gym bag, or backpack and they help you to avoid the vending machine, drive-through, or the “bad” snacks in the break room. I can easily pick up all my healthier snacks on my weekly shopping trips to Walmart and right now through January 31, you can use this Digital Savings offer and save $1.00 on 2 Weight Watchers Cheese items at Walmart.
