Trying to maintain your diet can be hard; especially when you are on a tight budget.

Here are some high protein snacks to consider.

Peanuts

If peanut butter is too expensive to buy on a regular basis, then peanuts are of course the best solution.

They are naturally high in protein and are a healthy fat. Even though they might seem daunting since they are high in calories, it doesn’t matter; since they are low in carbohydrates.

It is good to eat a handful of peanuts in moderation as a snack instead of a packet of crisps.

Sunflower seeds

They’re not just beneficial for hamsters, but they’re beneficial for humans too.

They’re rich in protein, vitamin B and vitamin E. As a conclusion you’ll have great skin, a natural boost to your immune system and a cheap way of a high protein intake.

Popcorn

Popcorn is rich in protein, fibre and antioxidants since it is a wholegrain.

If you need to build muscle, then eating popcorn as a post workout snack can help since it includes glycogen.

It is best to make homemade popcorn and you can get creative by seasoning it or just eat it plain.

Protein shakes

You can easily make protein shakes in order to make you feel full between meals.

They can be made at home, using a blender or food processor and you can use natural ingredients for it.

They can be really high in protein if you use oats as a main ingredient.

Here’s a easy recipe:

1 medium banana

1 cup of oats

1 cup of almond milk/semi skimmed milk

Optional: 1 tbsp Peanut butter/Cocoa powder

Add them all in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
