Reader question: Protein sources other than nuts

Megan wrote me and wanted to know what protein sources there are out there other than nuts. I thought I had my hypo email forwarded, but apparently not. Sorry it took so long Megan! I’ll tackle your other question soon too!

If you are a reader and have something in particular you want tackled, please comment on a post and let me know! I’m always looking for post ideas and I want to make sure I’m writing on the hypoglycemic topics that are most relevant to you.


Sources of Protein Other than Nuts for Hypoglycemics (check your portion sizes)

  • Lean meat
  • Protein shakes (some have carbs too)
  • Edamame (soy beans, dried, steamed, etc.)
  • Eggs
  • Cheese
  • Yogurt
  • Milk
  • Whole wheat pasta (also carbs)
  • Protein bars (also  carbs)
  • Beans (also carbs)
  • Seeds
  • Quinoa
  • Couscous

I’m guessing her question primarily stemmed from Megan wanting protein sources that were portable. So here’s that list:

  • Protein powder (I put 1/2 a scoop in a Gladware Mini Round and go! When I’m ready for it, I add water, shake vigorously and drink. They don’t leak so it works great!)
  • Cheese (can be unchilled for up to 2 hours and still safe to consume, I also often carry a mini cooler with me if possible)
  • Organic Milk. I recently learned that this doesn’t have to be kept cold. Starbucks sells individual portions.
  • Protein bars (I recommend Clif bars)
  • Seeds
  • Dried Edamame

Any other thoughts for Megan folks?
