Hunger strikes at the worst times, right in between meals and when you don’t have the most healthy options available. The key is to find a few satisfying options that you can grab and not feel guilty. Choosing a snack that is high in protein will help you stay fuller for longer. Never again should you reach for a bag of chips or a candy bar!

Jerky

Jerky is a dried meat that has been trimmed of fat, which makes it even healthier. It’s one of the highest protein snacks you can find, coming in at 9 grams per ounce.

Beef jerky is the most common but they are many other options if you don’t like that. Chicken, turkey, and salmon are popular as well.

Be careful with store bought jerky because many of them add artificial ingredients and sugars, so either choose natural brands or make your own at home to save money.

Hard Boiled Eggs
