Diet Snacks

“The only time to eat diet food is while you're waiting for the steak to cook”
-Julia Child
From Prevention Magazine: Healthy Snacks:6 High-Protein Foods. Excerpted from The Active Calorie Diet by Leslie Bonci, RD.
  1. Jerky - [on our recent vacation in the Midwest we ate aligator and snapping turtle jerkey in Wisconsin]  Jerky is low in fat, savory and takes awhile to chew. Go for low salt jerkey if you can find it.
  2. Roasted soy nuts - almonds, peanuts and cashews are great too (in limited quantity). Try soy nuts for some variety.
  3. Cheese packs - not just for kids. My wife enjoys the Laughing Cow mini-wedges and cheese sticks.
  4. Protein bars like Luna. Bars are typically 170-200 calories.
  5. Hard-cooked eggs - "one of nature's most perfect portable foods." 
  6. Fat-free or low-fat milk - perfect pre- or post-exercise snack.
Bottom Line
