My Top 10 High Protein Healthy Snack Alternatives!

what is going on aliens I'm Mike Rosa

and today I'm going to show you my 10

favorite high-protein snack alternatives

that I find so incredibly essential for

staying on track with your diet we all

get cravings let's face it we're all

gonna crave some unhealthy type of food

if we can satisfy these cravings we'll

stay on track mathematically with our

calories and macros it's gonna help us

get to our goals that much faster so

these are some of the healthier snack

high-protein alternatives that I

personally use throughout my fitness

journey to help me stay on track because

I freakin love food and by finding

alternatives that taste very similar to

the unhealthier option it really just

helps me mentally stay into it and it

just keeps me that much more motivated

so if you're looking for some new snack

alternatives or just trying to increase

your overall protein intake I really

hope this video helps you out because

it's helping me out a ton now real quick

before we get into it my workout up exit

price free download the app and Play

Store just came out with a whole new

feature it's a new tracking feature

where you're gonna be able to lock the

weight you do per exercise and then you

can even go in the exercise library

click on that exercise and see a

progression over however long you've

been doing these workouts in that

exercise with progressional graphs

detailed statistics of what you did per

set what you did per rep exact time

stance it's freaking lit make sure you

check that out that link will be in the

first bin comment in the description but

this video is about food oh yeah let's

give it to these high protein snacks

number one is gonna be for you mac and

cheese lovers muscle mac this is one of

my favorite high-protein snack

alternatives and it literally tastes

like crafts it's actually freakin crazy

and muscle mac also comes in the regular

cheddar and a white cheddar option and

it comes in two different storage

packages so you can put this one right

in the microwave if it's a lot more

convenient in my opinion and then this

one you actually have to cook but

there's a lot more actual mac and cheese

in this one so pick your poison but I

personally like the regular cheddar

option more but they do also have the

white cheddar option where you can just

put in the microwave like this as well

now the calories and macros for the

regular cheddar option are there are 410

calories 63 grams of carbs 20 grams of

protein and 10 grams of fat and an

entire containers are full serving and

it's actually a lot more quantity

it may look like this is gonna get a lot

of you full surprisingly and now into

the box version which right here is the

white cheddar option and one serving is

half a package of this there are 380

calories 53 grams with cards 20 grams of

protein and 9 grams of fat also a white

cheddar option is made with probiotics

in MCT oil so 20 grams of protein that

is a lot higher than any other mac and

cheese you'll find out there and of

course it's still gonna be high in carbs

it's mac and cheese so if you are a low

carb diet this isn't gonna be the option

for you but if you aren't too concerned

with your carbs and you crave some mac

and cheese this is a great snack

high-protein alternative number 2 is

gonna be for you beef jerky lovers this

is the Ostrom beef snack stick and

you're gonna be mind blown by the macros

on this and the calories the sweet and

spicy flavors my favorites I'm gonna

start with that one there are 90

calories only 2 grams of carbs 14 grams

of protein and only 2.5 grams of fat

yeah did you just hear those macros 14

grams of protein only 2 grams of carbs

and 2.5 grams of fat

well that's going to the other flavors

the natural flavors 80 calories 2 grams

of carbs 14 grams of protein and 1.5

grams of fat and the natural one is

actually my second favorite flavor and

then my third flavor flavor is the

pepper flavor and this one has 80

calories 2 grams of carbs 14 grams of

protein and 1.5 grams of fat those

macros and calories are freakin crazy

you're getting a ton of protein out of

such a low calorie rate that these are

such a great snack to have at the end of

the night to help fit your protein goals

I often find myself a little bit short

of my daily protein intake but my carbs

and fats are already up there so if I'm

not in the mood for a protein shake this

is a great alternative so just one more

quick time the sweet and spicy flavor

the natural flavor and then the pepper

flavor those are my top three favorite

flavors of the Ostrom beef snack stick

there are other flavors but I keep it

real with you railings and these are the

only three I like number three is gonna

be free ice cream lovers some night food

ice cream I am freakin obsessed with

these so I actually have stock in the

night food company so if you think I'm

gonna be biased I'm gonna tell you a

little story right now because that is

not the case I was a huge fan of halo

top ice cream now I parted with night

food

they actually came out with night food

snack bars in the whole point of the

company was help eliminate nighttime

cravings and that's why I really loved

the concept behind the whole brand and I

invested myself in it and then they came

out with ice cream and I was like

whatever I have halo top ice cream I eat

that all the time but then they sent me

these two flavors milk and cookie dough

cookies and dreams I was absolutely

shocked how good these tasted halo top

it tastes great no lie I loved halo top

I just didn't really find that it tasted

that much like regular ice cream but

then I had night food and it tasted just

like regular ice cream it was my glow

honestly because it has protein in it

too whoo and just for reference for you

aliens night food sent me a six-month

supply of their ice cream when it came

out and it lasted me two months I had to

order more just to make this video but

now let's get into the calories and

macros we'll start off with the milk and

cookie dough flavor and for another

reference there are four servings in

each one of these containers so the

serving amount is a quarter of the

actual container and if you're like me

you're gonna have that times these

numbers by four cuz you're gonna eat the

whole thing so the milk and cookie dough

flavored there are 90 calories in one

serving 17 grams of cards six grams of

protein and two grams of fat and then

the cookies and dreams flavor is

actually the same with 90 calories 17

grams of carbs 6 grams of protein and 2

grams of fat so this is a little similar

to the muscle Mac where it is still high

in carbs it's ice cream aliens but if

you times that by 4 that is 24 grams of

protein in just one container of ice

cream and if you're interested in

ordering some night food you can use my

code only 15 for 15 percent off your

order

that link will be also in the first pin

comment in the description feed the

crave monster number four is gonna be

for you chip lovers in this quest chips

now I actually don't like quest bars but

the quest chips they're unbelievable and

you're gonna be mind blown by the

calories and macros we'll start off with

my favorite flavor BBQ there are 130

calories only 4 grams of carbs 21 grams

of protein and only 3.5 grams of fat

yeah you heard that right only 4 grams

of carbs for chips mm-hmm and my second

favorite flavor the nacho cheese there

are 140 calories 5 grams of carbs 18

grams of protein and

six grams of fat so the barbecue is a

little more macro friendly than the

nacho cheese but the national cheese

taste bomb and it's still high protein

low carb and then my third flavor flavor

is sour cream and onion and there are a

hundred and forty calories in this five

grams of carbs 21 grams of protein and

only four grams of fat and I don't just

love the questions because of the low

carb high protein if you're like me

bored eating can be a problem so being

able to just reach in a bag pull out a

chip eat it and know I'm staying on

track calorically and macro wise it

makes a huge difference

these questions have been an incredible

alternative for me when it comes to

bored eating and they even dip in the

guac sometimes for some extra goodness

remember five is gonna be for you aliens

who love your egg whites

yo muscle egg I found this stuff at the

Arnold this year I was just walking

around and then the booth muscle leg

it's like what the hell is that I ended

up trying some flavors and it is protein

flavored egg whites yeah I was fricking

mind-blown especially when I tried it

and I ended up ordering four gallons

immediately after it truly is

unbelievable you literally just drink

them you don't even have to cook them

you did you drink them and it's protein

egg whites flavored Wow

this flavor right here is chocolate but

my other favorite flavor is cake batter

I just finished that way too quickly now

the calories and macros in this are 120

calories 5 grams of carbs 26 grams of

protein and 0 grams of fat and one

serving is 1 cup there are sixteen full

service in the entire gallon yo low carb

no fat

26 grams of protein those are crazy good

calories and macros and it is so much

more convenient than regular egg whites

because you don't have to cook anything

I highly recommend you check them out

I'm already hip cest number six is gonna

be for you cookie lovers Lenny Larry's

cookies

I love these I've been eating these for

a long time now I have my two favorite

flavors here and then a different option

of a bag of little cookies here just

like with the questions the bag is a

great alternative for that bored eating

we'll start off with the regular cookies

we'll get into the macros of my favorite

regular chocolate chip now real quick I

want to make sure you have full

understanding of this because the

company does try to trick you in a sense

I feel like half a cookie is one serving

who the hell eats half a cookie

so whatever the numbers I read times

that bite

- and that is gonna be the full cookies

serving amount all right so one serving

half the cookie is 200 calories 33 grams

of carbs 8 grams of protein and 8 grams

of fat then my second favorite flavor

double chocolate I love my chocolate

half the cookie is 200 calories 31 grams

of carbs 8 grams of protein and 7 grams

of fat now remember these are snack

alternatives so these ones are still

high in carbs and they are a little bit

high in fat but they're a great way for

craving a cookie to get it cookie

satisfy that craving and get some

protein in there as well now onto the

bag by the way the cookies and the bag

are both vegan so the serving size for

the bag is 6 cookies and they're about

3.5 servings in this entire bag the

calories per 6 cookies are 170 there are

19 grams of carbs 6 grams of protein and

9 grams of fat so if you are bored

eating keep that in mind because there

are 3.5 service in the entire bag and if

you're like me you can go through an

entire bag very quickly just be aware of

that but remember we're talking about

snack alternatives to help you get some

more protein in to also help satisfy

those cravings so don't be too crazy

about it and cinnamon sugar is my

favorite flavor for these and number 7

is for you muffin lovers buddy both food

I love this this is the only flavor I

actually like it's chocolate peanut

butter but it is really good you just

put it in the microwave and boom you

have a muffin satisfy that craving one

serving is the entire container and the

calories are 240 there are 20 grams of

cards 20 grams of protein and 8 grams of

fat you literally get 20 grams of

protein from a frickin muffin and it

heats up in the microwave in 30 seconds

quick convenient bomb try it out number

8 is gonna be for you rice krispies

treat lovers

BSN protein crisps they're not like

protein bars they literally taste like

the same texture as rice krispies treats

which is why I love them so much these

are my two favorite flavors the vanilla

marshmallow and the peanut butter crunch

you know I like my protein bars they're

a great convenience snack but I get

really sick and tired of that solid

chewy texture these just bite right in

it doesn't take a lot of effort to chew

and they taste bomb the calories in

macros with a vanilla marshmallow flavor

230 calories 23 grams of carbs 20 grams

of protein and 6 grams of fat and then

the peanut butter crunch flavor is 230

calories 22 grams of carbs 20 grams of

protein and 7 grams of fat and the full

bar is one serving so if you're like me

and you get tired of that chewy solid

texture from normal protein bars these

Lily tastes like the same texture as

rice krispies treats they're delicious

I recommend try these out as an

alternative number 9 is gonna be for you

cake lovers optimum nutrition cake bites

I really like these they're very

different than your standard protein

bars then the BSN protein crisps bars

that I just showed you these living

tastes like little cake bites in it aka

the name my two favorite flavors are the

fruity cereal and the birthday cake

let's start off with the fruity cereal

which by the way is also gluten free

there are 240 calories 25 grams of carbs

20 grams of protein and 8 grams of fat

and then the birthday cake option which

I don't see labeled as gluten-free so be

careful if you have celiacs there are

240 calories 25 grams of carbs 20 grams

of protein and 7 grams of fat and one

special thing I do like about the cake

bikes is the serving amount is actually

one entire package but there are three

cake bites in there so once you finish a

protein bar it's gone when you finish a

cake bite you still got two more to go

ah yeah and number 10 is for you coffee

lovers the babe protein coffee now I

know Bing is kind of controversial right

now because the CEO got caught lying

about the standard bangs about having

creatine in there but having aminos in

there you know what I'm not gonna get

into that in this video but these are

protein filled so they still apply to

this video and they still taste bomb my

two favorite flavors are the heavenly

hazelnut and the cookies and cream craze

and make sure you know that these do

have caffeine in them and quite a lot

they're 300 milligrams of caffeine so

keep that in mind before you consume

them and let's start off with my

favorite the heavenly hazelnut which by

the way one can is one full serving

there are 140 calories 9 grams of carbs

20 grams of protein and 2 grams of fat

and then the cookies and cream craze is

a hundred and forty calories 11 grams of

carbs 20 grams of protein and 2 grams of

fat so if you're a fellow caffeine

addict and drink a lot of coffee these

really do

tastes great their protein pack so they

can be a great alternative to help you

get some extra protein in well you get

your coffee taste in and that caffeine

of course I just want to give a little

bonus 11 for those who love popcorn the

Icahn meals protein popcorn it's really

good but when I open up a bag I'm more

than likely I'm gonna finish that bag

and there are four servings in this

entire bag and that means if you have

all four servings 40 times four you have

a hundred and sixty grams of carbs just

by eating this one bag that's why they

included in my top ten this is a very

rare occasion if I'm like crazy popcorn

which I don't really crave that much but

these do taste really good now there's

school over the macros per one serving

which is a quarter of the bag and the

calories there are 272 calories 40 grams

of carbs 10 grams of protein and 8 grams

of fat so if you do eat the whole bag

you do end up getting 40 grams of

protein but like I said that is a

hundred and sixty grams of carbs so

that's a freaking ton that's way too

excessive for a snack in my opinion but

like I said people do crave that popcorn

so this is a way to help get that

protein in if that is one of your

cravings and this is the only flavor I

really like this it's the dark chocolate

sea salt so this can be a great snack if

you can restrain yourself but know

yourself because I can't so I hope you
