Whether you’re trying to bridge the gap between breakfast and lunch or tide yourself over until a late dinner, the best snacks to fill you up are packed with protein. But rather than inhale a protein shake or bar, try munching on some roasted chickpeas or apples dipped in spicy peanut butter. Or sip a creamy, nutty tahini date shake or green smoothie. Not only will homemade snacks satisfy your your sweet or salty cravings, but they’re also easy to tailor (and tweak) than a pre-made mix or bar. Here, we’ve gathered 19 of our most filling bites, dips, spreads, and sips that are guaranteed to keep you full.
