What are your favourite snacks that are high in protein?
I am looking for alternatives to crisps etc.
Peanuts! I love them salted or dry roasted. They are a great high protein snack. (So long as you're not allergic to them). I should think that other kinds of nuts are good for protein too.
I agree that nuts (like almonds and pistachios) and legumes (soybeans and peanuts) are your best bet. Though granola and popcorn are also very filling (and pretty healthy when they aren't loaded with sugar/salt).
I like biltong, which is the South African equivalent of beef jerky, for those who don't know. It is simply dried meat in strips, and the old Dutch travellers (voortrekkers) used to eat it when travelling in their wagons across the country.
A banana, strawberry, yogurt and vanilla flavored almond milk smoothie (all organic ingredients of course). This is a great and easy to digest snack any time of day or night. The yogurt and almond milk pack a nice punch of protein that gives you way more than most other snacks could by themselves. As an added bonus, you get all the probiotics from the yogurt
Nuts, and seeds. My favorite is almonds, and pecans. Not only are they high in protein, they also help boost estrogen. Very helpful in midlife.
Pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, are also nutritious.
Peanut butter, although not a crisp snack, is also high in protein. Dip something crispy in it for a snack, such as celery, carrots, or apples. Add granola, or wheat germ, for added nutrition. Any nut butter will do, such as almond butter. Cubed cheese, along with these will add more protein.
Boiled eggs are high in protein, and may be added to a crispy salad, along with cubed meat, and cheese, both high in protein. Add a crisp cracker, on the side for extra crunch.
Yogurt, with granola, or wheat germ for crunch. Yogurt is a good source of protein, as well as probiotics.
I'm getting hungry just thinking about it. Enjoy.

What is a vegan protein I can put on a sandwich?I've only recently started adopting the vegan diet, but I'm still sort of stumbling my way through it.
