Snack Foods With a Protein Boost

What is your favorite snack food? For those who are looking to add a protein boost to their diet, there are tons of options when looking for a new preferred snack option. You just have to know what to look for!

Check out these three snack foods that provide a strong protein boost, and can be enjoyed at any point in the day.


Salty and rich roasted peanuts are one of our favorite snack foods. The great news for protein lovers is that they also give a boost of this important nutrient, containing tons of the substance by weight. You can consume these nuts in the traditional way, or as peanut butter.

Beef Jerky

Beef jerky is a form of the classic cow meat that has been dried and treated to make it a portable, long-lasting snack option. While it might not look or taste exactly like a steak, you’ll get the same high protein content by munching on jerky during your workday.


Looking to snack on something a little bit lighter? Why not try hummus along with a side such as sliced vegetables? Hummus contains a surprisingly high proportion of protein, which makes it a great choice.
