Hard Boiled Eggs – My go-to protein snack! If you’re saving on fats, you can eat just the whites as well.
Protein powder – You can add it to yogurt from Starbucks, mix it into an iced coffee or latte, or just with almond milk or water. I also pack protein powder when I travel. This will be perfect after your morning workout, and to bring with you while away from your hotel and sightseeing!
Salmon or Tuna pouches – They can be used as snacks, or in place of a meal on the go. Skip the flavored varieties as they usually have added sugar and things you don’t want.
Beef/Turkey Jerky – A good high protein option to keep you satisfied between meals. Make sure you get one with low carbs, like 5-6g per serving
Cottage Cheese or Greek Yogurt – You can mix in your favorite nut butter, fruit, cinnamon, chia seeds, or your choice of sweetener.

Pistachios – Pistachios are a good, low sugar option. Having to open each one prevents you from overeating.
