The secret to a satisfying snack? Protein! This powerful nutrient can help slow digestion, keep blood sugar levels steady, and banish hunger cravings away. Of course when we normally think of eating protein, we might imagine a large plate of steak and eggs – not the easiest thing to prepare when you're looking for a quick and healthy stop gap. Luckily, there are many other food ingredients that are high in protein and far simpler to turn into an instant snack. Forget that bag of crisps or chocolate bar: these five healthy recipes will satisfy your hunger AND your taste buds. 

 

 Did you know?
