Protein is an important macronutrient, especially for active adults. Many of us get adequate amounts of protein from food, especially from animal products, but sometimes it may be necessary to add more protein-rich foods to our plates. While a protein shake or supplement like powder may sound appealing, sometimes it’s nice to have a packable protein option you can bring with you to work, after school activities or in the car.
