Trying to lose weight in 2018? Trust me—another starvation diet is not the answer. I like to prepare high-protein meals and snacks that help me feel energized and satisfied all day long. Ready to get healthy without going hungry?
I’m always looking to add protein to my day. Why? Protein is a nutrient that not only helps build muscle but also helps keep me full so I don’t get "hangry." (And my boyfriend doesn't like it when I get "hangry!") Some of my favorites are plain low-fat Greek yogurt, tofu, cheese, and eggs. Want 100 more options?!

Guess what?! I've now been a registered dietitian nutritionist for more than a year. Because of my love of the DIY quick-snack trend, I was excited when MensFitness.com asked me for my Almond Cocoa Pistachio Bites recipe. Snag it and seven others, and you'll have plenty of energizing snacks for the week!
