6 Healthy Grab-and-Go Snacks Perfect for Busy Days

Roasted Chickpeas

Chickpeas, the base ingredient of your beloved hummus, boast an impressive 50 grams of protein in one cup.

It also packs plenty of healthy fiber and carbohydrates, both necessary for keeping you going throughout a busy day.


Jerky made from beef, chicken or turkey is both perfectly portable and packed with upwards of 28 grams of protein per 3-ounce portion.

Just be sure you pick a low-sodium and low-sugar variety, as many companies add both to their products to amp up the taste.

Mixed Nuts

A portion of healthy mixed nuts—meaning varieties without added flavoring or salt—is a protein-packed snack that will last for weeks.

Your best bet is to add an ounce of pistachios to a mix that includes peanuts to add an additional 6 grams of protein to your snack.

Single-Serving Greek Yogurt

Greek yogurt packs a huge protein punch in a small package,

but it can turn into a sugar and calorie bomb if you don't pay attention to nutrition labels. 

Apples and Almond Butter

This snack is the perfect mix of sweet, savory, and protein.

Simply cut up one regular apple and then dip in unsweetened almond butter. 

'Cheese' Popcorn

Well, sprinkling a bit of parmesan cheese over air-popped popcorn is nothing like the nightmare of movie theater popcorn.

This gives it a cheesy taste with an extra 8 grams of protein.
