Soy Snacks

This post is part of the Soy Simple campaign. Read my disclosure here.

If you’re with me, and I ever just get kind of quiet, I either:

  • have a terrible stomachache and am thinking about just how soon I can get to a bathroom
  • or am really hungry and am trying to not rip your head off.

Before getting my act together a few years ago, I never really snacked, thinking that clearly people I would know overweight if I were snacking, eating extra calories. (Because my appearance clearly didn’t show it.) If I really did get hungry in between meals, I’d wait until I couldn’t take the hunger any more and usually grab something unhealthy. Once I decided to start being nice to my body a few years ago, I realized that snacking in between meals could actually be good for you if they were healthy snacks.

Since then, I always try to have some sort of snack with me in case I get stuck without food.

Now that I’m getting back on a normal schedule and am just in an office all day, I can obviously use the fridge for snacks, but over the summer running to interviews and meetings, I needed something that I could throw in my bag that wouldn’t make a mess. I ate a lot of bars because they were so easy to grab and had protein to keep me satiated.

The trainer I used to work out with used to talk about having chicken or turkey as snacks, but that never really appealed to me, and I didn’t start eating hard-boiled eggs until this summer. I don’t eat yogurt any more because I limit dairy in my diet to be kind to my stomach (even though it’s not kind to me), so soy protein is the easiest way for me to get some protein in between meals.

What are some other ways you can snack on soy protein?

  • soy milk (mmm chocolate soy milk)
  • energy bars
  • smoothies with soy protein (true story: I used to bring out little pre-portioned baggies of soy to my fave smoothie truck near work because I didn’t like their whey protein.)
  • soy yogurt (can’t say I’ve tried this yet, but I do miss yogurt so want to try it.)




This week’s prize is, again, a $50 grocery store card to your local grocery store. In order to enter, you must partake in this Soy Scavenger Hunt.

When doing your grocery shopping this weekend, find a great snack made with soy and tweet a pic at me with the hashtag #soysimple.
