These protein-rich snacks, suggested by Kate Geagan, author of Go Green Get Lean: Trim Your Waistline with the Ultimate Low-Carbon Footprint Diet, provide at least 5 grams of protein, a nutrient with staying power that keeps you focused until your next meal.

  • 1 large hard-boiled egg and 7 reduced-fat, whole-grain Triscuits (197 calories, 9 grams protein)
  • 1 packet of Justin’s peanut or almond butter with 2 celery sticks (200 calories, 7 grams of protein)

  • 1 part skin mozzarella string cheese (60 calories, 6 grams of protein)
  • 2 wheels of light Babybel cheese and 1 small apple (177 calories, 12 grams of protein)
  • 1 cup edamame (189 calories, 17 grams of protein)
  • 1 oz. low-sodium or all-natural beef or turkey jerky (73-90 calories, 12-13 grams of protein)
