Crunch Choc Peanut

Whether you’re wanting a snack post-workout or just craving a little something, you want to pack in as much protein as you can to help you eat healthy and build up the muscles you’ve worked hard on! Here’s our top snacks that not only taste great but will make you feel great too!

 

Warrior Protein Bars

Protein bars are the perfect way to add carbs, protein, vitamins, and minerals to your diet. If you get the right ones, they are also convenient and delicious snack. 

Warrior Protein Bars are not only great for muscle building with a massive 20g of protein in every bar, they also taste amazing! 

Even though Warrior protein bars are quite new to Australia, they have been an international sensation for years. Already named as the best protein bars in Australia for their mouth watering flavours, whether you’re looking for a satisfyingly chewy Raw flapjack or an indulgent Crunch bar, Warrior has the perfect protein bar for you! 

Our favourites in the Crunch range are the Salted Caramel Crunch and the White Chocolate Crisp and in the Raw bars again the Salted Caramel is amazing but the Red Velvet Cake Flapjack had us at hello! 

 

Protein Shakes

Protein shakes are well known as one of the best snacks to help build muscle. The best time to drink your protein shake is within an hour after your workout, that is the optimal window to get the most from your shake! To make the perfect protein shake, it will often take a bit of trial and error for you to figure out which flavours result in the best tasting shake. The easiest way to do this is by adding in some healthy, natural ingredients. Things like bananas, chocolate protein powder and peanut butter are a great mix for a luxurious treat, or for a more summery drink, try adding in your favourite mix of berries!

 

Yogurt with Whey Powder and Berries

This combination snack is packed with nutrients, protein and antioxidants! Yogurt is a great source of calcium and vitamin D and with the added protein from whey powder and natural boost from berries you get a satisfying, healthy and fresh snack!

 

Nutrition-Packed Trail Mix

Whether you buy a premade, nutritional mix or make your own, trail mix is a great way to boost your nutrition and curb your hunger. We recommend using ingredients that are high in protein like pumpkin seeds, almonds, sunflower seeds, dried fruit and pistachios. 

 

Veggies with Hummus Dip

A simple but delicious snack packed with nutrients and protein! Simply cut up your favourite veggies and pair with a low calorie hummus. One of our favourites is carrots, cucumber, celery and capsicum. When paired with hummus, which is full of protein, fibre and fat, you not only get a great tasting snack but the vegetables give you a boost of natural nutrients!
