5 Protein-Packed Post-Workout Snacks

You rocked that workout, now hunger is calling. Healthy snack options combine carbs and protein to fuel your body and build muscle after a workout, but, where to find those? Hangry no more! Here are five protein-packed snack ideas.

Greek Yogurt & Berries
Guilt-free dessert? Sign us up. Non-fat Greek yogurt is packed with protein and calcium, and if you choose plain, this snack is low in sugar, too. Adding berries, which are loaded with antioxidants, sweetens the deal. 
 
Apples & Nut Butter
If crunch is your jam, grab an apple. The fiber in apples helps fill you up with fewer calories. Add a tablespoon of nut butter and you’ve got a sweet treat that delivers essential post-workout protein. Running out the door? Sub a handful of nuts for the nut butter.
 
Hummus & Veggies
If you’re on the go, then veggies and a 1/4 cup of hummus is for you. Bonus? Celery and cucumbers are typically free foods, so you can fill up without adding extra calories. Or try a few carrots, a vitamin superstar. 
 
Mini Turkey Sandwich
Embrace your inner child with a mini turkey sandwich. Pair a few slices of low-sodium deli turkey with a slice of whole wheat bread or a few whole grain crackers. Just don’t forget Dijon mustard; it’s rich in flavor but low in calories.
 
Chia Pudding
Save time! Whip up a batch of our favorite chia pudding. This protein-packed powerhouse combined with a half cup of berries is naturally sweet. Top with sliced almonds for crunch, and you have the best of both worlds: sweet and savory.
 
Sure, you could blend up a protein shake, but eating your snacks is so much more satisfying. And the carb-protein combo is endless. What’s your go-to snack to fuel up post workout?
