Some or most people won’t readily admit that they snack all throughout the day. These people seem to be munching on something the whole day. Even after breakfast having their meals, snackers would soon be looking for something they can sink their teeth into, and this is obviously not a healthy lifestyle. If you can’t control your snacking, your best recourse is to have low-calorie snacks instead.
Here are some of the best low-calorie snacks that’ll help fill you up every day.
- All-Natural Fruit Bar (50 calories)
If you’re out on a grocery run, chances are you’ll end up buying a couple of snacks. To lessen the guilt, buy low-calorie snacks such as Edy’s All-Natural Fruit Bar and their other products. The frozen fruit bar is a refreshing turn on the otherwise boring (for some) fruits. Each pop is full of vitamin C (around 15% of the daily requirement) and only 50 calories.
- Greek Yogurt with Honey (81 calories)
A cup of Greek yogurt is only 59 calories. Add a teaspoon of honey (22 calories) for that healthy sweet taste.
- Carrot Fries (83 calories)
This one is simple. Just roast some carrot sticks in the oven and you’re good to go. If you wish, you can sprinkle some cheese on them for a bit more flavor, but that will only add to the calories.
- Frozen Grapes (110 calories)
Keep a cup of grapes in the freezer so you can have cold, healthy and low-calorie snacks anytime you need it.
- Banana and Raspberry Ice Cream (115 calories)
You need one banana and about 20 grams of raspberries. Chop the banana first before placing both fruits into plastic container with a lid. Place it inside the freezer. If you’re craving for ice cream or any cod snack, simply get a couple of spoonfuls of the frozen fruits and throw them into a blender. Blend until smooth then enjoy one of the most refreshing yet sugar-free low-calorie snacks you can easily make at home
- Baked Chickpeas (153 calories)
The best alternative to snacking on chips is snacking on chickpeas. Bake two cans of chickpeas with some EVOO, half a teaspoon of garlic powder, a little paprika and chili powder for some kick. Don’t forget to add some sea salt to taste.
- Banana Nutella Muffin (165 calories)
Who said you can’t have a muffin AND Nutella if you’re trying to eat healthy. Bake a muffin using whole wheat flour, ground flaxseeds, ripe bananas, non-fat Greek yogurt and Nutella as your main ingredients.
- Dark Chocolate (170 calories)
Chocolates are the least things you’d expect on this list but with dark chocolate we’ll make a little exception. While a piece or about 1 ounce of dark chocolate has 170 calories, it does pack a lot of nutritional benefits. This is the best option for people who love chocolates which may go higher than 200 calories per serving.
- Fresh Fruits and Vegetables
Of course, the best option when it comes to low-calorie snacks is to have fresh fruits and vegetables. Here are ten fresh and ready to eat low calorie snacks (per 100 gram serving):
Celery (16 calories)
Cucumber (16 calories)
Watermelon (30 calories)
Strawberries (33 calories)
Peach (39 calories)
Carrots (41 calories)
Oranges (47 calories)
Pineapple (50 calories)
Apples (52 calories)
Raspberries (52 calories)
