Wherever you are, protein is essential in your daily diet.  Sometimes, we assume that protein can only come in full meals, or meat filled meals.  That’s not always true.  These snacks will help you fill up, gain energy, and keep you away from that heavy feeling.

On a boat of celery or apple slices slab on some nut butter (like almond, cashew, walnut) and add some whole almonds or raisins.
