Do you know that moment when you feel like you could use a snack, but you are trying to avoid eating it, so you won’t have to feel guilty afterward? Snacking in between meals is an urge we feel on a daily basis and to be honest, it is quite hard to resist it.
What if we would tell you that you can have a snack under 100 calories every day? What if we would tell you that there are, actually, 10 food varieties you could use as snacks and take in less than 100 calories? Although it might sound that it has something to do with science-fiction, we tell you that it is as real as it could get! Wondering what we are talking about? Take a look!
- Air-popped popcorn
You can eat it anytime you want or when you feel hungry. Always choose the air-popped version and not the buttered ones you can find on the market. It will take your hunger away and you will also eat fewer calories!
- Baked kale chips
You can replace the oil fried potato chips with a healthier snack! Go for the baked kale chips, instead! One cup of this snack contains only 50 calories and they taste even better. Also, they are very low on sodium and they do not contain any cholesterol or sugar.
- Celery stalks and hummus
One celery stalk contains only 10 calories. They are low in fat, carbs, and cholesterol. You can eat 3-4 stalks of celery in combination with hummus, which is high in proteins. Celery is high fibers, so all in all, it is a great snack.
- Baby carrots with dipping sauce
These carrots are sweeter and even juicier than the normal carrots and a medium-sized one contains about 4 calories. Combine them with hummus or salsa and you have a great snack!
You can eat them as a snack, since 20 of them will not contain more than 68 calories. They are very healthy and can prevent a series of conditions, too!
- Low-fat Greek yogurt and berries
170 grams of this yogurt barely contains 100 calories. Eat one plain cup or ½ a cup in combination with any type of berries you love.
Eating one apple in between the meals will take 70-80 calories. Sprinkle some cinnamon and make it even tastier!
Soaked or dry roasted, 14 almonds will contain about 98 calories and offer you the proteins and fibers you need to keep you full until your next meal!
- Cottage cheese and fruits
It offers you a great amount of proteins that are going to be slowly digested and keep you full for longer periods of time. Have ½ cup of cottage cheese with fruits based on water, such as cantaloupe, and you have your perfect snack.
- Boiled edamame
They are basically young soy beans. You can eat ½ cup of these and take in about 95 calories. You can prepare them at home or buy them from the nearest store.
