Protein is an essential part of a healthy diet. But getting enough of it can be difficult.

One simple way to up your protein intake is by adding in one or two high-protein snacks throughout your day. Over 60% of people over the age of 16 in NY state are employed, so eating food at work is common.

Here are a few options you can grab even when you'll be on the go.


Whether you want to eat beef, turkey, or even mushroom jerky, it'll be a great source of protein. Thankfully, this item is found in most grocery stores and comes in a wide variety of flavors.

You can even make it at home!

Hard-boiled Eggs

Eggs are an affordable way to add protein to your diet. If you also want it to be convenient, then making one batch of hard-boiled eggs to carry you through a few days will save you time.

As long as you have an ice pack, you can toss a few in a container and grab them whenever you're ready to munch.

Greek Yogurt Parfait

Greek yogurt is high in protein and makes a great snack, meal, or dessert. If you get the right container, you can make a parfait with yogurt, granola, nuts, and fresh fruit to take with you.

Just don't forget the spoon!

Trail Mix

Trail mix is one of the most convenient snacks out there. That's why even hikers pack this in their bags to have on the trail.

Tossing some in a baggie is all you need to do to set yourself up for more protein throughout the day.

You can purchase trail mix from the store or make your own. Here's a recipe for a high-protein trail mix if you want to try something new.

Happy snacking!
