Snacking is probably the best thing in the world when you’re bored. In fact, there’s actually science behind why it’s so great. When you’re bored and you snack, it triggers a release of endorphin, which momentarily makes you not-so-bored.

If you’re anything like me, that can be dangerous. Especially if you’re the type that reaches for the potato chips when you’re ready to snack. It doesn’t have to be as dangerous, though. That’s the beauty of protein. Protein keeps you full longer than carbohydrates, so you aren’t elbow deep in that bag of chips 10 minutes after you snack.


Here are some ideas for quick, easy snacks that will keep your belly full and your brain satisfied.
