Healthy Snacks with Snack Girl

Sometimes we have to change our diets for medical reasons and it isn't easy. For example, during my pregnancy my pals "Ben and Jerry" were getting a wee bit too friendly for my obstetrician.

Dianne from Indiana wrote to me about her medical dilemma:

Could you feature a few more snacks that have protein in them or are high in protein? Since my gall-bladder surgery, I'm to eat less carbs and more protein for snacking.

Hard for me, since I LOVE carbs. And the only protein ideas I come up with are boring and the same old thing. Cottage cheese, cheese, meat, nuts.

What else? Isn't there something yummy that has some good protein too? Also... easy and quick to make? Or is that too many requests in one?

Sheesh, that IS too many requests in one :)

So, first I had to understand how one defines a high-protein snack. I decided that the best measure was whether the grams of protein per serving was more than the grams of carbohydrate per serving.

There are some great snacks that include beans that are both high in protein and carbs, but I skipped those for this list.

The snacks below feature either dairy, meat, or eggs to get their high protein rating - but they also include vegetables or fruit, and I hope Dianne finds them more interesting than the ones she is currently eating.

I included a few packaged snacks (7-10) for those of you in a rush.
