With a fully booked schedule, stylists may find days where they only have minutes to refuel between clients. 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)
  • 6 oz. low-fat cottage cheese with 2 clementines (190 calories, 5 grams protein)
  • 1 slice 100% whole-grain bread topped with a 3-oz. pouch of tuna mixed with 1 tsp. of mustard (182 calories, 19 grams of protein)
