Guys, we all know there’s nothing worse than fighting through hunger with a dainty 100-calorie snack pack. Don’t want to deal with it? Either do we!
This National Snack Food Month, we’re banning snacks that barely get you from meal to meal. We looked at what makes a snack worthy of curbing a working man’s hunger and put together a list of qualities to look for … plus a snack every rind lover will destroy.
Adding a variety of protein foods to your snacking routine can improve nutrient intake and health benefits, including helping to burn fat and build muscles. Protein can also help you to feel fuller longer.
To reap the benefits of this nutrient, try foods like turkey and cheese roll-ups or jerky. Hint: Pork rinds have eight grams of protein per serving!
Looking for a sweet protein packed treat? Try our Peanut Butter Pork Rind Bars recipe. Sweet and savory all in one.
Refined carbohydrates, like those in white bread, cookies and pretzels, tend to make you feel hungrier, so think of the long-term. Did you know that pork rinds have 0 carbs? Reach for a fiery bag of Southern Recipe Hot & Spicy instead!
Beyond the nutrition in your food, flavor can also make you feel fuller faster. Looking for something to spice up a ho-hum work day? A few Salt & Vinegar Pork Rinds just might do the trick.
