I'm going to the gym, usually, everyday. I'm looking for a simple and easy snack, something that I can carry with me to work, to the office, and would help me to recover from my workout. :)

I know some recipes rich in carbohydrates but none rich in proteins :( (Besides whey protein, of course)

Any tips or recommendation ? Thanks in advance!

    This question has attracted a couple of close votes, probably because of your use of the word "health". We don't address health issues here. I am going to edit your question to eliminate that issue (as well as I can). Please don't be offended. It's fine to ask for high-protein, low carbohydrate recommendations as such. What we will not allow is you asking for "healthy" alternatives. We are cooks, not doctors. – Jolenealaska Nov 28 '16 at 10:59

    @Stephie Well done. That may still be an issue. – Jolenealaska Nov 28 '16 at 11:39

Just searching for "high protein snacks" prompts a huge amount of resources to play with.


A hard boiled egg is high in protein and comes in a handy natural container.


How about low-fat cottage cheese? It would be easy to put in your bag; it is fairly high in protein, and low in carbohydrates. You can throw it into a smoothy too.

  • That's a great idea @Jole! And here in Germany is also very cheap too! :) – Valter Silva Nov 28 '16 at 12:50
