High protein snacks are slow burning fuel, keeping us satisfied longer, giving us more steady energy, balancing blood sugar (minimizing mood swings & improving focus), better portion control & nourishment.
Unless you’re vegan, one of the best high-protein snacks are eggs!
Ways to enjoy
Gently dropping an egg in boiling water for exactly 7 mins makes a wonderfully jammy egg, perfect with sea salt & fresh pepper.
A fried egg in a bit of olive oil makes for delicious crispy edges and soft centre.
Egg cups can be made by whisking eggs with seasoning, chopped veg, additional protein & cheese then poured into a muffin tin; bake at 350 for 12 mins and keep in the fridge or freezer for quick snacks & lunches throughout the week.
My son loves to scramble eggs with oat milk, sea salt & pepper.

I opt for free-range, organic eggs over cage-raised eggs. Free range eggs are more nutritionally dense and ethically raised - and are 98% less likely to carry salmonella.
