Classes are back in session, and the kids are going back to college! A common question we are asked at REVOLUTIONIZE NUTRITION this time of the year is "What are some healthy snacks my kid can keep in their dorm room/bring to school?"
Well, we have some great recommendations for you! Here is a list we compiled of healthy snacks, many of which are higher in protein. It's easy for many of us to hit our carb and fat intake. Reaching our protein intake can be a bit more challenging. Hence, the high protein options we listed. Not only does having the correct amount of protein in your diet aid in your muscle recovery, but protein is also slow digesting, helping to keep you feeling satiated and fuller longer! Feeling satisfied through the day, having a properly balanced diet, staying hydrated, and stabilizing blood sugar levels, will also assist cognitive functioning, sustain your energy levels, promote focus and productivity during those long school days, as well as support optimal recovery with a healthy sleep cycle.
Here are some of our top snack picks:
Plain non fat Greek yogurt with fresh fruit
Cottage cheese Deli turkey, chicken, or ham roll ups
"Grab and Go" rotisserie chicken or turkey breast, or sliced London broil Protein bars- Robert Irvine Fitcrunch, Barebells, Built, One, Pure Protein (available at Rev) Protein drinks- Fairlife, Quest, Premier Protein, Corepower Protein powder - Apollon Nutriton Available at the Revolutionize Nutrition storefront or online with promo code "APOLLONSTRONG" .
