Not to mention, the protein from this snack will keep you fuller for longer, leaving less room for junk foods throughout the day.

Keep in mind, this recipe is fast and simple, so don’t be scared to play around with it! If you don’t like mushrooms, they can be substituted with bell peppers or asparagus. Need a visual? Watch a quick video tutorial here.
