I need to snack between meals! “Diets” that make you wait 7 hours between meals are definitely not for me!
Here are some things I like to snack on without pushing my calorie intake up too much. Keep in mind, some foods you consider “healthy”, may very well be healthy, but could also be high in calories. For example: nuts are good sources of fat, fibre and protein, but check the calorie count if you are aiming for a calorie deficit and counting your intake.
|3 cups||Popcorn (no oil)|
|1||Hard Boiled Egg|
|5||Slices cucumber topped with cottage cheese|
|1/4 cup||Dried cranberries|
|8||Baby carrots with 1 tbsp Hummus|
|1 cup||Fresh melon|
|1 Small||Latte with skim milk|
|1 Small||Apple with 1 tbsp Peanut butter|
|1/2 cup||Fat free plain yoghurt with 1/2 cup strawberries|
|1/4 cup||Roasted Chickpeas (made with 1/2 tsp oil)|
|2 pieces||Sushi (eg. Rainbow roll)|
|1 small||Sweet potato (sliced in air fryer with seasoning)|
|20||Almonds (raw – no oil)|
|1 cup||Cherry tomatoes with 28g Feta – add seasoning, fresh basil and balsamic vinegar|
|1/2 cup||Edamame Beans (add some lemon and chilli – yum)|
|15||Raspberries, stuffed with one dark chocolate chip each|
Remember to always include a wide variety of food to make sure you get enough of all the food groups, these ideas are my personal favourite snacks under 100 calories.
