This post is part of the Soy Simple campaign. Read my disclosure here.
I’m usually on the go more often than I’m home. Between working full-time, chairing a Junior League committee and serving on a Junior League task force, working out and training for races, and maintaining an active social life, I spend more time outside my apartment than inside it, usually, which means lots of eating and snacking on the go.
While I would basically like to just eat all carbs all the time, that’s not really realistic, nor is it satiating, so I try to make sure all my snacks are balanced, too.
My favorite protein-on-the-go, for its easiness, is a protein bar. I usually go for Luna bars, but I really just aim for anything that has at least 7 grams of protein. I do actually find though that bars with a ton of protein make me a bit nauseous.
Other easy sources of protein on the go:
- hard-boiled eggs (I actually became sort of addicted to them this summer. If you’re super-lazy, Trader Joe’s sells them in a bag with all the work already done for you.)
- protein powder in a shake or smoothie. With a blender cup, this is actually a pretty easy one to get done at work.
- sunflower butter (or any other nut butter). With a piece of toast or an English muffin and banana, this is probably the best snack known to woman.
- Greek yogurt (if your stomach tolerates lactose better than mine, you’re lucky.)
I have another (by I, I mean the very nice PR agency who will actually send this to you) grocery store gift card for one lucky winner!
