Whey protein & coconut water

This is a simple high satiety snack to boost your protein intake.  While whole foods are ideal, protein powder is a great way to boost your protein intake.  

The protein powder provides a boost of cheap bioavailable protein while the coconut water provides minerals and some sweetness to round out the taste.  

One scoop of protein will help get you through a spot of hunger when dieting while two scoops will go a long way to boosting your daily protein requirements and helping you recover from your workout.
