Easy Protein Boxes (2 options!)

Sharing is caring!

These easy protein boxes are a great idea for meal prep or on the go lunch. They have a great balance of ingredients to keep you satiated.

It's easy to assemble the perfect box with all your favorite ingredients. I'm sharing my two favorite combinations, and I have several other options for you below, including a vegan box and one with sliced lunch meat.

These snack boxes are a great way to easily prep a healthy lunch or snack for yourself if you're on the go or just need a quick bite.

They're a take on a Starbucks protein box that I enjoy, but don't always love paying for! These are a much cheaper way to enjoy

Ingredients

Egg Fruit & PB Box

  • Hard Boiled Egg - hard-boiled eggs are nutrient powerhouses! According to WebMD, they are a great source of lean protein (with 6 grams of protein per egg).
  • Apple Slices (Honeycrisp, Pink Lady, or your favorite type) - apples are easy to find year-round, and they're high in fiber and vitamin C. (source)
  • Woven Wheat Crackers - you can use Triscuits or your other favorite brand of whole wheat crackers.
  • Red Grapes - sweet and flavorful, red grapes are also available year-round. If you want a less sugary option, swap for ¼ cup of blueberries.
  • String Cheese or Mozzarella Cheese - cheese is a great source of calcium and has some protein as well.
  • Peanut Butter - a little bit of peanut butter is a great source of fat and will help keep you full!
  • Pinch of salt and pepper

Cheese & Crackers Box

  • Apple (Honeycrisp, Pink Lady, or your favorite type) - apples are easy to find year-round and are high in fiber and vitamin C (source).
  • Woven Wheat Crackers - you can use Triscuits or your other favorite brand of whole wheat crackers.
  • Cheese Cubes (Cheddar, Mozzarella, Pepper Jack, or Colby Jack cheese) - cheese is a great source of calcium and protein.
  • Almonds - like most nuts, almonds are a good protein source and have plenty of essential nutrients, including vitamin E, B2, and magnesium (source).
