Sometimes, you’ve just got to have a snack. But you want something healthy, but also satisfying. Maybe you’ve got a sweet tooth, or maybe it’s the crunch you want. This post has something for everyone.
These low-calorie snack hacks are about 60 calories or less.
Cup of strawberries or melon–perfect for a sweet tooth.
1/4 cup low fat cottage cheese. Sprinkle with cinnamon, it’s good for blood pressure!
Half a can of water packed tuna and some avocado, which is a good fat.
Skinny Cow variety of cheeses. I don’t care for these, but many dieters swear by them.
Skinny popcorn can be a good choice.
Kale chips-make your own, recipe here, about 80 calories a cup, if that.
Cucumber slices with hummus. I’m lucky enough to have a Palestinian neighbor who keeps us stocked in his delicious hummus, but we’ve bought hummus, too.
A cup of unsweetened applesauce, you add the cinnamon. Applesauce is good for digestion; even our dog, Riley, gets a spoonful or two a day. Without the cinnamon. Me? I add cinnamon to lots of stuff, including cereal and yogurt.
A cup of cherries, half a small apple or a small orange or peach.
A 35 calorie rice cake, spread with a little bit of peanut butter and very thinly sliced bananas. A small banana is 90 calories, I slice less than a quarter of a banana for this.
3 big kosher dill pickles make a savory snack.
