Super Bowl season is right around the corner, and you cannot host a party without food! Although all foods are good in moderation, it is crucial to maintain a healthy balance even during the Super Bowl. For people with diabetes, incorporating fruits, vegetables, and protein into their diet is important for maintaining a normal blood level range and healthy weight.
High protein snacks are a great way to stay full throughout the day while ensuring your health is a priority. So, if you need some healthy and high-protein snack ideas, this post is for you!
Protein does not always have to be meat. There are plenty of foods that are high in protein. For example, chickpeas are a great source of calcium, magnesium, fiber, and protein. Even better, there are many ways you can incorporate chickpeas into your diet or as a delicious snack to share. For one, you can roast chickpeas in your oven or air fryer and top them with your choice of seasonings. A classic way to eat chickpeas and ensure you are eating enough protein is by making your own hummus. Then, serve your hummus spread with a side of your favourite vegetables for a delicious and healthy snack.
If you are looking for a snack that incorporates meat, turkey roll-ups, tuna sandwiches, and beef sticks are nutritious yet filling protein snacks that you can prepare in minutes! For your turkey roll-ups, all you need is turkey slices and your favourite type of cheese – simple and yummy!
If your guilty pleasure is potato chips, kale chips are a tasty alternative – also very high in protein! An easy go-to recipe for kale chips is your choice of seasonings, avocado oil, and bake! Kale chips are guaranteed to ease that savory craving.
Sweet tooth? No problem! You can still easily include protein in your desserts. A great source of protein is Greek yogurt. Top your Greek yogurt with some granola for healthy carbs, your favourite fruits, and a drizzle of honey for a delicious treat. If you love chocolate, chocolate protein pudding is the way to go. A simple mixture of your milk of choice, chocolate protein powder, and a sweetener like agave, honey, or vanilla extract, creates a decedent, low-carb dessert anyone would love.
With these high-protein snacks in mind, there is no doubt you will host a great party while providing delicious and nutritious snacks! Whether these snack ideas are for everyday or special occasions, they will keep you feeling full, energetic, and satisfied.
