Protein on the Go (Giveaway!)

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!

    Luna and Cliff Mojo bars are my fave on-the-go snacks, they’re like a healthy candy bar! Sometimes if I’m in a snacky mood, I’ll make a little cereal/ nut mix that holds me over… I’ve noticed that combo of a little healthy fat, protein, carbs, and fiber are the keys to staving off my hunger 🙂

    I really like Lara bars.
    They have very few ingredients and so are very natural and super healthy.
    I have a question for you… if you are not home much how do you balance time with your puppy?
    I too have a little canine at home and as an active, social single girl I find it hard to make sure I spend enough time with Lola.

      @E: I definitely have a hard time with that. I try to make sure we have lots of quality snuggle time when I am home and do try to say no as often as I can. It’s a really hard balance.

    Tweeted! My favorite way to get extra protein is greek yogurt – it’s my go to snack every night, with some blueberries or strawberries. Yummo!
