The Best High Protein Vegan Snacks [To Carry With You]. Munch On!

vegan-snacks-1

Who doesn’t love snacks? I know I do! And I don’t know a single vegan who doesn’t. Especially snacks that are high in protein and that I know will keep me full, and maybe along the way help me build some muscle.

Whether you are on the go and need something quick to eat, or you just have the afternoon munchies, there is always something to satisfy our bellies.

And even though we really don’t need as much protein as some want to make us believe, we still need to make sure that we are getting enough protein in their bodies.

Reaching for high protein vegan snacks will also help us reach our Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA), which is 0.8 grams per kilogram of body weight (or 0.36 grams per pound).

Fortunately for us, there are plenty of high protein vegan snacks to please every palate. Today we will discuss them all, from the packaged ones you, to the simple recipes that you can easily whip in the kitchen.

Protein and Amino Acids

Let’s quickly recap what protein actually is. But if you want to learn all about protein, I recommend that you check out my article “You Need To See This Vegan Protein Sources Chart! Got Enough Protein?”

Proteins are the building blocks of life. They are made of amino acids joined in chains.

Some of the amino acids that we need are produced by the body. However, there are some that are derived from our diets. We call these essential amino acids.

This is why it’s important that our bodies get the protein they need. As vegans, we cannot get essential amino acids from meat, so we must get them from plant sources.

Let’s give our body the protein it needs so that it functions so that it can function to it’s best ability. Even if it means having to sneak in some snacks in our day to day.

Benefits of High Protein Vegan Snacks

Consuming high protein vegan snacks has other benefits other than just helping us get the protein we need. These are some of the other benefits:

1. Reduce Hunger Pangs and Appetite

According to a study, protein is the most fulfilling among macronutrients. This means that you feel more full even when you eat less food.

This can be attributed to the fact that protein reduces Ghrelin which is the hunger hormones. To add, it also increases the level of Peptide YY which is the satiety hormone.

If you are thinking of losing weight or the pesky belly fat, snack on high protein snacks. Who knew, right!

2. Increase Metabolism and Boost Fat Burning

If you are looking at increasing your metabolism and boosting fat burn, perhaps you should opt to feed yourself high-protein snacks.

Based on a study, a high protein intake manifested a significant boost in metabolism and increased the number of calories burned.

3. Help Increase Muscle Strength and Mass

Proteins are very important when it comes to muscle building. The more protein you eat, the more your muscle mass and strength can increase.

If you’re are a fitness enthusiast who is trying to gain strength and muscle, make sure you get enough protein!

4. Good For The Bones

As we get older, we start losing bone mass which increases the risks of developing osteoporosis and other bone density issues. To avoid developing these bone problems as we age, including some high protein vegan snacks in your everyday life!

5. Helps Lower Blood Pressure

Hypertension is one of the major causes of strokes, heart attacks, and kidney diseases. There have been several studies that show how a high protein intake can help lower blood pressure.

6. Helps The Body Heal

If you have experienced any injury, snack on high protein snacks to make the healing process faster. Protein plays a very important role in the organs and tissues of the body. By eating more protein, the body is able to repair itself faster.

Consuming high protein vegan snacks has other benefits other than just helping us get the protein we need.

Conclusion

Aside from all the health benefits of protein that we discussed at the beginning of this blog post, as vegans, we need to make sure we are getting the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) of protein every day, and high protein vegan snacks can certainly help us get there.

Whether we opt for the ready-made ones or those that we can make ourselves, the possibilities are almost endless!

I hope I have made your life easier by giving you my list of my favorite high protein vegan snacks. But, if you come across some in the grocery store that I didn’t mention, just make sure you check the ingredients as not all of them are healthy.

If you opt to make snacks yourself, even better! One of the advantages of making your own high protein vegan snack is that you know what ingredients go into it! In this day and age, it’s so much easier to find and to buy vegan ingredients.

If you know any vegan snacks products or snack recipes that are high in protein that I have not included here, feel free to share them in the comment section below! If you know anyone out there who needs this list of snacks, make sure to share this blog post with them on their social media account!
