Most people don't go plant-based or vegan with the intention of eating more packaged foods. But on-the-go options can come in clutch when you'll be traveling somewhere that's not so vegan-friendly. They can also make hitting your goals easier if you're trying to build muscle while avoiding animal products.
These dairy-free snack options all have at least 10 grams of protein per serving, so they'll help you hit your macro goals and avoid becoming hangry between meals. (FYI, here's how much protein you need per day.)

Trail mix will give you a boost of energy, but it's not always a healthy—or vegan—option. (Lookin' at you, M&Ms and chocolate chips.) Instead, try this high-protein vegan snack mix of roasted cashews, chickpeas, fava beans, edamame, and soy beans.
