Biltong is a good any time of day snack, no preparation required, just tear off and chew. Great protein content, just beware it can have large amounts of salt, it can be expensive as well. But generally if you go to a South African speciality shop you know your getting good quality stuff. I can recommend these guys Bizzi B's Best Biltong, South Africa, South African Recipes plenty of variety and reasonable prices! Based in SW London/Surrey but do on-line orders as well.

Or you could just make your own out of any red meat. Cut off any fat, cut thinly dry in an oven on the lowest heat with the door slightly open until its dry. The salt only gives taste, the drying preserves it, so you can use cayenne or similar instead, you just rub it in before the drying process.
Powerbar and SIS both do protein and energy cereal bars but you'd have to check the energy to protein ratio.

I used protein shakes when I was away to help replace crap food and skipped meals (yes I know its not meant for that) I was training weights with a little CV (skipping/punch bag/press up circuit) and I put weight on, it did bulk me out a bit not what I wanted as I now have to do extra CV to lose it. I won't be doing that again as I don't want bulk as it certainly doesn't help with running etc!
I used maxi muscle if you want to bulk out but you need to train with it!!

For quick and easy stuff, I used the following -

- Houmos and oatcakes (I have no idea how to spell that first word and I pray I haven't inadvertently mentioned an international terrorist organisation!)

- Peanut butter on wholewheat toast.

- Stagg canned chilli from Tescos (Low fat variety, bloody nice).

- Good old scrambled eggs.

- A whole can of tuna, bit of ultra low fat slad cream, jammed in wholewheat bread.

- Massive bowl of Special K, using a Protein Shake instead of milk.

- A massive pack of Turkey breast, seasoned, grilled and chopped up and used for 3-4 days.

Quick and easy was the key.

If your heading down the protein powder route I just get the biggest and cheapest i can, they are all pretty much the same apart from a gram or 2 of protein. Don't just look at the weight of the pack either, you want to be going off the amount of servings per pack. I've fallen foul of this a few times where you get a big old tub but the serving scoop is the size of a shovel so only lasts a week.
I'd avoid the big names such as maxi muscle and PHD as they charge way over the mark for price per serving.
When I'm stripping fat for a comp I hard boil 20 eggs every morning and eat them in sets of 5 through out the day, doesn't do your bowels any favours but sure does feed the guns lol.
