Hi everyone! It’s Mary from Mary’s Not On A Diet. I am back from vacation and well rested.

It was great to relax in Mexico – I even managed
to fit in a few workouts while I was gone.
 Now it’s time to get back to business as usual. I thought this week I could share with you some of my protein packed go-to snack and meal ideas. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do. Let me know if you whip any of these up and how you like them!

Protein Power Snack Ideas

I eat every three hours around 300-400 calories. When eating I have been instructed to consume 20 grams of protein per snack or meal.

  • ThinkThin Chunky Peanut Butter Bar with Fruit
  • Muscle Milk Light with Kirkland 100 Calorie Whole Wheat Deli Flat and 1 tbsp of organic peanut butter
