low-calorie snacks

Posted Feb 21 2012 9:00am

Most of the time, I prefer snacks that are high in fat, protein and have at least 150-200 calories or I find myself snacking again 5 minutes later. Current favorites: apple + almond butter or cheese + crackers. (Ok, cheese + crackers isn’t current, it’s constant).

But there are times, *cough* at night *cough* when I’m not really hungry, I just want something.

Here are the “snacks” that aren’t really snacks  - for those times when I want something but don’t need it.

Low Calorie Snacks: 

  • miso soup (you can use instant or make your own with miso + wakame)
  • tea
  • a few olives
  • raw veggies like celery, cucumber
  • high-water fruit like watermelon, grapes, melon, etc.
  • frozen fruit bars
  • frozen vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, green beans
  • seaweed snacks
  • roasted asparagus
  • brothy soups
  • leafy salads with a splash of olive oil and vinegar
  • dill pickle or sauerkraut
  • sliced tomato with drizzle of olive oil, salt & pepper
  • tomato juice
  • air-popped popcorn
  • grilled scallions (we had these all the time in Mexico growing up)!

Any favorites to add to the list?
