What are great portable, ready-made, high-protein, low carb, tasty, and savory rather than sweet vegetarian processed food items?

Primal Strips fit the bill exactly. I think they taste great.

Also, spiced roasted chickpeas, spicy pumpkin seeds, tamari or wasabi almonds, string cheese.

I like roasted edamame. They are crunchy and super-noshable.

Bean dip! Perfect for car trips -- can be purchased in convenience stores (or at least supermarkets) across the land. Eat with fresh veggies. Or your finger.

I like Primal Strips a little better, but Jerquee comes in a bunch of flavors.

You can also buy already-boiled eggs; I think I've seen them in the produce section. Add a mustard packet for bonus tastiness.

Wasabi peas.

Edamame? I used to put frozen pods in a tupperware, and just let them thaw during the day.

They sell little hummus cups that are really portable and yumful.

Any roasted nut.

I really like to snack on slices of smoked tofu (scroll to the bottom of this page)

I'm pretty into those little Babybel cheeses that you may remember from elementary school lunch period (they come in red wax, which my friends and I used to fashion into crayons) and hardboiled eggs.

Bean curd or tofu snacks.

I'm a carnivorous omnivore and love jerky, but I love this stuff especially the mouthfeel. A bit pricey for the amount of nutrition you get, but there are tons of different brands with tons of different flavours. Some brands/flavours can be a little sticky if you're eating them with your fingers, though.

Hummus, use carrots to dip.

Cheese. Avoid eating it with a ton of carbs, and the fat isn't so bad for you.
