Protein Rich Jar Snacks

A lot people rely on jar snacks as they are their best friend when they are utmost hungry and not in a mood to cook as well. Again avoid the fried option, as most jar snacks are also deep-fried. Prefer a non-stick tava for these snacks too… So when you have time on hand, do your preparations and in full spirits make them and store them in air-tight containers. 

Nachni Sesame Khakhra and Palak Jeera Nimki are flavorsome ideas to try your hand at. The khakhras are famous Gujarati snack. Each khakhra provides 2.1 g of protein.

Eggs are considered to be one of the healthiest option to indulge in by those who are ova-vegetarians. One egg gives approx. 6.7 g of protein. This is highly nourishing for the body cells – for the maintenance of existing cells and for the growth of new cells too.
