Protein bars are an excellent way to refuel if you have a busy lifestyle, or even if you’re trying to lose weight. This is because protein is what helps repair muscles and tissue, as well as providing your body with an energy source if you’re cutting down on carbs.
High protein snack bars
Snack bars are great for refuelling on the run. They are compact, easily available and some of them are quite tasty! If you’re bored of the same old flavours, why not try our Trek range of protein flapjacks and bars? We use all natural ingredients in our bars, and with flavours such as cocoa brownie, peanut and oat, and mixed berry, there’s bound to be something which takes your fancy in our range.
Lunches and quick snacks
If you’re after something else for your lunch box, there are lots of delicious high protein snacks you can get from the supermarket. A great example of a lunchtime protein snack could be a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, one tablespoon of peanut butter alone contains around 4 grams of protein, combine it with a slice of whole-wheat bread to give yourself a perfect energy boost.
Protein snacks for vegans
If you’re a vegan, you’ll need to make an extra effort to find sources of protein for your everyday diet. This is because most people get their protein from dairy products and meat. If you can’t eat these foods there are other sources of protein; you just need to know where to find them.
Popular protein rich foods for vegans include:
- Beans and peas
- Nuts and seeds
- Soy foods – tofu, miso etc.
