Filling foods keep you from binging later on or overindulging at the next meal. These foods are usually high in protein, high in fiber, and low in energy density—meaning it’s low in calories for its weight, so it’s probably packed with water or air, but not fat. Usually whole or unprocessed, these foods will keep you full without packing on too many calories or too much sugar or fat. Here are the healthiest foods that are also the most filling.
Not on-the-go friendly
Some of the healthiest, most filling foods are either nearly impossible to pack in your work bag or just aren’t as tasty after they’ve sat in your car all morning. Consider boiled potatoes, eggs, fish, soups, meats, or coconut oil. Meat jerkys are tasty and filling, but they’re often packed with so much sodium and preservatives that they lose their nutritional value. Fruits and vegetables are always winners, particularly if you can add some cottage cheese, nut butter or hummus—just make sure you pack it securely so you don’t end up with a big mess!
One cup of edamame with a little sea salt contains fifteen grams of protein…you can buy them fresh and steam then, or microwave the frozen ones. Or snap peas with hummus. The crunchiness makes you feel like you’re really eating and the combination of protein, fiber, and water keeps you full until dinner! Mister snacks sells four-ounce bags of wasabi green peas—spicy, crunchy, and full of fiber!
Bananas as so simple, so cheap, and so transportable! It has enough fiber and water to keep you fuller than most snacks. Mister Snacks sells banana chips and fruit mixes, such as Sierra Mix, Tutti Fruity, and Tahitian Treat, that also contain banana chips.
Nut butter plus oatmeal plus honey plus dark chocolate chips equals eight grams of protein. Plus, you’re getting sufficient amounts of fiber and antioxidants.
Greek yogurt has more protein than regular yogurt and provides you with a lot of calcium and probiotics to fight inflammation. A parfait, yogurt and fresh fruit, would be hugely delicious and nutritious, but tough to take with you on the go. Instead, try some of Mister Snacks’ yogurt covered fruits and nuts!
Nuts, legumes, and seeds
Mixed nuts and trail mixes provide an easy way to get a delicious dose of protein in convenient, portable packaging. Almonds and pistachios are the nuts highest in protein. Seeds, dried fruits, and chocolate add additional sweetness and antioxidants. Mister Snacks sells unsalted cashews, a Walnut Raisin Mix, Sriracha Cashews, Rocky Mountain Mix, almonds, pistachios, pumpkin seeds, and sunflower seeds.
