2 hardboiled eggs—offer 12g of protein

3/4 cup yogurt with 1/2 cup of berries—Greek yogurt has twice the protein as traditional type. This offers 17g of protein

5 whole-wheat crackers and 1 tablespoon natural peanut butter—They have about 7g of protein together. Bonus: natural nut butters have heart-healthy fats

Carrot sticks and celery with low-fat cottage cheese—There’s about 13g of protein in a 1/2 cup
