Fun and Easy Protein Box! 2 Ways!


Description

A better way to snack. Protein boxes done 2 ways, sweet and savory. These make for the perfect on the go snack or a meal at your desk during a busy workday. 


Ingredients

Scale

Savory Protein Box

1 egg, hard boiled

~ 1 tsp furikake seasoning

4 pieces of “cracker cut” Gouda cheese

1 mini cucumber, sliced

6 cherry tomatoes

~8 small crackers *SEE NOTES

2 tbsp hummus

Sweet Protein Box:

1 egg, hard boiled

1 tsp everything but the bagel seasoning

4 strawberries

a handful of blueberries

1/2 an apple, sliced *SEE NOTES

~ 8 small crackers *SEE NOTES

2 tbsp peanut or almond butter


Instructions

To assemble the SAVORY protein box, place the egg in the larger side of your meal prep container (only cut the egg in half and serve with the furikake seasoning when you’re ready to serve. I have it cut in half for aesthetics in the photos). Now, gently nestle the cheese slices, cucumber pieces and cherry tomatoes next to the eggs. Spoon some hummus into the smaller side of your meal prep container and nestle the crackers next to the hummus. 

Now, to assemble the SWEET protein box, place the egg in the larger side of your meal prep container (only cut the egg in half and serve with everything but the bagel seasoning when you’re ready to serve. I have it cut in half for aesthetics in the photos). Now, gently nestle the strawberries, blueberries and apple slices next to the eggs. Spoon some peanut butter into the smaller side of your meal prep container and nestle the crackers next to the peanut butter.

I recommend only prepping enough protein boxes for 2-4 days. I only prep a few at a time because of the hard boiled eggs. I personally don’t like keeping hard boiled eggs in the fridge for more than a few days. Technically hard boiled eggs will last up to 7 days in the fridge, but I like to play it safe. 

Notes

* If you are prepping a few protein boxes ahead of time, I recommend adding adding the crackers only when you’re ready to eat/serve. Crackers will lose their freshness when they are refrigerated. So just add your crackers to the box when you’re ready to eat or before you take your protein box on the go. 

* To help keep your apple slices from turning brown, cut them however you like and place them in salted water (about half a teaspoon of salt to 1 cup of water) for about 10 mins. Simply remove the apples from the salted water and place in the meal prep container along with the other ingredients. You can also do this by placing the apples in water with lemon or lime juice.
