Celery Dipped In Peanut Butter
A throwback to many people’s childhood, this quick healthy snack is easy to make. Just throw one spoonful of peanut butter on to the end of a stick of celery and hey presto!
Greek Yogurt is a great high protein snack and boasts plenty of creative uses. Like adding to smoothies, making overnight oats or enjoying with granola. Not only is it high in protein, but it’s also high in calcium which is crucial for keeping your bones healthy! Once opened its fridge life is about 7 to 10 days.
Tuna Niçoise protein pot
We’ll be honest, boiled eggs can get a tad tedious! So by switching things up occasionally, you will find yourself more motivated to stick to the healthy options in your fridge! Why not make Tuna Niçoise protein pots? Slice one tomato and one egg into wedges, throw in around 80g of green beans (can be efficiently steamed above the same pan you’re boiling the eggs with) and 120g of tuna. These powerful pots of protein will keep for a couple of days in your fridge.
