Andi answers a listener question about her current favourite protein snacks ( also listed them for you).

"It's really important to have high-protein snack options in mind and at hand, because we are all so busy and on the go, and protein is lacking from most of our diets. Most convenient snack options are low in protein and high in unhealthy fats and carbs. You can start to change up your diet with some of the options below or it might just give you some inspo!"
