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)
  • 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)
  • 6 oz. low-fat, plain Greek yogurt with 2 Tbsp. of dried cranberries or ½ cup frozen berries (178 calories, 17 grams of protein)
  • 1 oz. pistachios or almonds (159-157 calories, 6 grams of protein)
  • 1 oz. pumpkin, hemp or sunflower seeds (6-19 grams of protein, 150-180 calories)
  • 6” corn tortilla with 1/3 vegetarian refried beans plus 2 Tbsp. cream cheese and 1 jarred roasted red pepper (187 calories, 7 grams of protein)
  • ½ cup Amy’s lentil sourp or bean chili (about ½ can) (180 calories, 8 grams of protein)
  • Protein-rich shake: Belen 8 oz. skim milk, ½ banana, ½ scoop of hemp or whey protein powder, and ¼ cup crushed ice in a blender (200 calories, 21 grams of protein)
