Protein is an essential part of a healthy and balanced diet and is important for your body's growth and repair.
Having protein is especially important after a workout as it helps to promote repair and recovery in your muscles. The good news is you don’t need to eat a whole chicken breast or a carton of eggs to get the protein you need – there are plenty of tasty plant-based, high-protein snacks too.
Tuck into these high-protein snacks post workout.
1 tablespoon of peanut butter with 1 banana on wholewheat toast provides about 11g of protein
a 30g serving of almonds (about 23 almonds) contains around 6g of protein
1 sliced apple with 1 tablespoon of almond butter contains around 4.5g of protein
a 200g serving of roast chickpeas contains roughly 9g of protein
2 tablespoons of hummus with 90g of carrot sticks provides around 4.5g of protein
