8 Healthy Protein Snacks for Weight Loss Programs

Chilled Shrimp

Cooked, chilled shrimp is a great high protein snack to grab when you need something light but meaty. A single 3-ounce serving of shrimp provides 18 grams of protein. The number of shrimp in a single serving will vary depending on the size and the type of shrimp you buy.

Remember that shrimp are highly perishable. Cooked shrimp will stay fresh for up to three days in your refrigerator. Buy shrimp frozen, then create single-serving containers of 3 or 4 medium shrimp. Add a lemon wedge to each and store in the refrigerator to thaw. Eat within a day or two.

Greek Yogurt

Greek yogurt is great high protein snack if you’re craving something creamy and sweet.  A single-serving of Greek yogurt provides 20 grams of protein. It’s also a good source of calcium. But if you’re watching your sugar intake, you might want to stick to plain, unsweetened yogurt. Add your own fresh berries or a teaspoon of honey to add a little sweetness.
