Low Calorie Snacks
Calories are probably one of the biggest enemies of people who are planning on losing weight. Well, there’s good news! You no longer have to be tempted by these high calorie foods since there are snacks that you can consume guilt free!
These snacks can really help you get rid of those hunger pangs without worrying about packing up on unwanted calories.
- Fresh veggies with a fat free dip
You’re probably thinking that fat free dips and foods are heaven sent. Well, they sort of are especially when you’re avoiding the added fat content in usual chip dips.
You no longer have to say goodbye to your weight loss plans because you can still enjoy those snacks.
Vegetables are probably one of the best alternatives that you can get in the market.
This is because they not only provide a fat free or low calorie snack but they also give a lot of different nutrients that are very good for the body.
Best choices are bell peppers strips, carrots, cherry tomatoes, cauliflower or broccoli and cucumber spears.
As for the dip, you just need to be a little more persevering in finding the fat free ones.
There are a lot of different choices when it comes to dips so be careful with the one you put into your cart. Sometimes despite the fact that the front label says fat free, it still contains unwanted ingredients so check very carefully.
- Meat or Veggie Kabobs
Summer time calls for a different kind of snack so why not go ahead and try meat or veggie kabobs. For vegetarians or those who do not want to eat too much protein, vegetables are a good alternative to meat.
Make sure to add flavour to your kabob by using mushrooms such as Portobello and add cloves of garlic to season.
As for the colder parts of the year, you can use a broiler drip pan to do this so you can do it indoors.
- Fresh fruit snacks
Drinking commercially prepared juices and sodas contain high levels of calories so it’s best to stick to all natural ones.
If you’re not a fan of natural fruit juices, you can make a fruit shake without adding on too much sugar. That way you can satisfy instances of sweet cravings without busting your weight loss diet.
[Tweet “You can use grapefruits, cantaloupe, apples and berries when making low fat or low calorie fruit shakes or juices.”]
You may also add honey or low fat yogurt in order to add on to the flavour without those extra hundred calories that typical sugar brings in.
This helps you enjoy your diet better and avoid the feelings of restriction or frustration that you can’t exactly eat any sweets. Well, with this alternative, you easily can and even lose weight!
These are only a small fraction of dieting since there are numerous options to choose from. So, get creative with your next recipe so you won’t have to stick with just one.
