Help! I need suggestions for smallish, easy snacks that are high in protein, calories, and fiber, while not too high in fat or sodium.

I am having a boring constellation of stomach issues now complicated by a medication that makes me ravenously hungry in the middle of the night. But the stomach issues mean that I can't eat much without getting horribly nauseated (at best).
So does anyone have any advice for smallish, easy snacks meeting the criteria I cited above? I am trying to get the biggest protein, calorie, and fiber bang for my buck every time I eat, without having too much fat (triggers the stomach issues) or sodium (blood pressure, etc.).
Right now my go-tos are nuts, edamame, and whole-grain tortilla chips with hummus. Cheese isn't really an option for me at night (though it's a favorite snack during the day), and some of my other favorites like salami are too spicy to be a great choice for my midnight digestive system. I would love some more options to add to my rotation.
