Quick Protein Snacks

30 Quick & Easy Protein Snack Ideas

Need some quick and easy protein snack ideas? Here are 30 tried and true ideas that require very little time and effort!

Quick Protein Snacks

One of the things that has helped me be more functional this pregnancy is making myself eat some type of quick protein snack every few hours — even when I was very nauseous and it was the last thing I felt like doing! I’ve found that protein snacks give me more energy and actually (usually!) makes me feel less nauseous to make sure that I don’t have an empty stomach.

I mentioned this idea of eating quick protein snacks on my Instagram account, and someone said they struggled to come up with quick protein ideas. So yesterday, I asked my followers to share their favorite quick and easy protein snack ideas. I compiled the following list based upon their suggestions and some of my favorite ideas.

30 Quick and Easy Protein Snack Ideas

  1. Hard Boiled Eggs — Make a bunch of hard boiled eggs in the Instant Pot and keep them in the fridge. You can also mashed them with some mayo, mustard, and salt/pepper and spread on toast.
  2. Scrambled Eggs — I like to put a little cottage cheese in them while they are cooking + top them with a little cheese.
  3. Edamame
  4. Cheese Cubes and Almonds
  5. Beef Jerky
  6. Rotisserie Chicken — Buy it and keep it in the fridge. You can eat it cold or warm it up!
  7. Epic Bars
  8. Tuna — The grab and go packets are especially easy!
  9. Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie
  10. Wasa Crackers or Rice Cakes with Peanut Butter
  11. Lara Protein Bars
  12. Lunch Meat with a Dill Pickle
  13. Hummus and Veggies
  14. Mixed Nuts
  15. Trail Mix
  16. Chick-fil-A Grilled Chicken Nuggets
  17. Cheese Sticks
  18. Energy Bites
  19. Cashew Butter with Apples or Bananas
  20. Greek Yogurt
  21. Cottage Cheese
  22. Nut Thin Crackers with Cheese or Peanut Butter
  23. Bean and Cheese Burritos
  24. Beef or Turkey Sticks
  25. Turkey Pepperoni
  26. Collagen — You can mix it into your coffee or tea and it’s tasteless
  27. Kodiak Cakes Frozen Waffles with Peanut Butter
  28. Chocolate Milk
  29. Greek Yogurt Parfait
  30. Justin’s Nut Butter Packets
  31. Applegate Chicken & Maple Sausages

What other quick and easy protein ideas would you add to this list?

My Completely Honest Ultimate Homemaking Bundle Review

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy here.

Thinking of purchasing the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle? Be sure to read this honest review first to help you decide whether it is worth paying for or not.The Ultimate Homemaking Bundle

Due to its popularity back in May, the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle is on flash sale again for two days only!! If you missed it back in May and wished you’d bought it, here’s your second chance!

My Honest Review of the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle

I know many of you look forward to purchasing this every year. It’s such a HUGE bundle of resources on all things homemaking.

I mean, hello, for just $29.97 you get access to:

  • 27 eBooks
  • 30 eCourses & videos
  • 25 printables
  • 16 workbooks
  • 3 summits
  • 2 membership sites

For real! And that’s why so many of you buy the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle year after year… because you get access to so many new resources (many that you might never discover on your own!) for just one flat rate price of $29.97.

Is It Really Worth $29.97?

Many of you might be on the fence about whether you should purchase the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle or not.

You’ve seen multiple emails about it from various email lists you are on. You’re wondering whether it’s really as amazing as it looks. You might have even been thinking that it sounds too good to be true.

Yes, you get a LOT of resources for just $29.97! Considering that the supposed retail value of all of the items bundled together would be almost $2300, that can seem like a c-r-a-z-y deal!

However, I want you to be really wise and intentional in how you spend your money. Which is why I’m writing this really honest review. I’ll share my thoughts on what I liked and what I didn’t like.

And then in tomorrow’s post, I’ll share what my favorite resources were from the bundle.

Yes, I Went Through Every Single Resource in the Bundle!

I got so much positive response from doing honest reviews of The Ultimate Productivity Bundle and the Master Your Money Bundle that I knew I needed to also do the same for the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle.

But let’s just say, this was a MUCH bigger undertaking to go through every single ebook, online course, and product in the bundle.

In fact, after going through about 30 of them, I started to wonder if I had up and lost my mind in making this commitment. But I’m here to tell you that I did it — and if this post helps you make an informed decision about whether or not to buy, then it will have been worth the hours and hours I invested! 🙂

My Honest Thoughts

Here are my honest thoughts on the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle:

The Negatives:

  1. Some of the products had an inflated price tag. The Ultimate Homemaking Bundle is supposedly valued at $2300. I’m going to be honest and say that I felt at least 25% of the products had an inflated price tag. And, truth be told, I likely wouldn’t use at least 60% of them. So for me, the value would be really and truly more like a $300 to $400. Maybe, possibly, more like $500. But definitely not $2300.
  2. A few of the products were hard to access. Due to the nature of how the bundle is set up, you have to individually download/sign up for each product. This can be frustrating because it means you have to set up account after account for each product you want.
  3. Many of the courses required my email address to access. Guess what that means? My inbox is now getting a lot more emails because in order to download or sign up for a product, I had to give out my email address and now the author put me on their email list.
  4. A number of the products will not be your cup of tea. The products in this bundle are from a wide variety of sources and I cannot see how every single one would ever appeal to every single person. There are a number of homeschooling products that would only appeal to homeschoolers. Some of the products are from a very Christian perspective and these would only appeal to Christians. The resources for moms that would only be helpful if you have kids or care for children on a regular basis. And so on and so forth.
  5. There were SO many resources. This can be a positive or a negative. I personally loved it (see below), but I can see where some people could feel overwhelmed by it. It could make you feel like you need to do more and be more… like you should homeschool and set up a cleaning system and learn how to hand letter and take up sewing and practice hospitality and redecorate your house right away and all at once after buying this bundle.

*I completely understand that this is one of the reasons authors are willing to heavily discount their products in the bundle, but the irony is that I’m now getting quite a few extra emails that are promoting the bundle to me from these very authors! I really would love it if those who have products in the bundle make sure to tag people who come into their system so that we aren’t getting their bundle promotion emails because we downloaded a product from them that was in the bundle we already bought!

The Ultimate Homemaking BundleThe Positives:

  1. There were SO many resources. As I said above, this could be a positive or a negative. For me, I loved that there was so much variety. I loved that I could buy one bundle and get access to a plethora of different courses and resources on all sorts of topics.
  2. There were some really high-quality products. I was thoroughly impressed with how many of the courses and ebooks were well-done, well-designed, and truly quality. It felt like the folks at Ultimate Bundles were very careful with what they accepted this time around and it showed in the caliber of the products.
  3. I was personally very inspired by a number of the resources. Instead of feeling overwhelmed by the sheer number of resources, I felt so inspired by the amazing women who put all of these together and who are out there doing such great work through their online businesses.
  4. I learned a lot from the resources. In going through the resources individually, I learned a number of new things when it came to makeup application, home decorating, and time management.
  5. There were so many different perspectives — truly something for everyone! While I said above that not all of the resources are going to be your “cup of tea”, because there is such a wide variety of resources from so many different people with difference perspectives, you are definitely going to find at least 5 or 20 different courses and ebooks that will likely be very helpful and beneficial for you personally.

Want to Know My Favorite Resources From the Bundle?

Like I said, I went through each product in the bundle myself and tomorrow, I’ll be sharing my top picks from it.

I had initially planned to share my list today as part of this post, but it ended up being so long that I felt like I should turn it into two posts. Stay tuned for that post tomorrow!
