What are the best low calorie snacks?

Snacking can be very beneficial but you should follow some simple strategies to make the most of your snacking time:

  • Plan your snacks

Filling low-calorie snacks should be part of your weekly meal plan and prepared in advance to avoid unnecessary calories and unhealthy choices. If you need some advice on how to design a healthy diet plan, check out our free 7-day vegetarian weight loss meal plan.

  • Be aware of portion size

Remember that snacks should keep you full between meals but not replace your meals. So better not snack while surfing the internet or working to prevent losing focus and overeating.

  • Choose whole foods

Avoid processed snacks and instead choose whole foods to gain energy – like low-calorie veggie snacks, fruits, legumes, whole-grains, nuts, and seeds.

  • Focus on nutrition

Select low-calorie healthy snacks that are packed with vitamins, minerals, complex carbohydrates, protein, and/or healthy fats (try these high protein light snack recipes for a focus on protein!).

  • Go for protein

Increasing protein intake provides many nutritional benefits and fuels energy. So pick high protein low-calorie snacks that fill you up and try to cut back on sugar, salt, and fat.
