Feeling the afternoon snack attack? Here’s some healthy snack options that are packed with protein and will help to keep you feeling satisfied.

Fruit shakes. Blend together a handful of berries, a banana, yogurt and a splash of orange juice, and you instantly have a nutritious shake!

Edamame. Try it before a meal or an afternoon snack. It’s packed with protein to keep you feeling fuller, longer.

Peanut butter & celery. Take one medium celery stalk, spread it with a tablespoon of peanut butter and you’ve got a quick and healthy snack.

Don’t forget to drink plenty of water throughout the day!
