Low Fat Snacks FAQ

I’ve answered some of the questions about dietary fats and low fat snacks down below.

Good fats vs bad fats

The word “fat” doesn’t sound too pleasant all alone. But do all types of dietary fat deserve negative attention?

No, not really. Saturated fat and trans fat are the bad guys.

While saturated fat sources (butter, cheese, sour cream, whole milk, and coconut oil) should be restricted, trans fatty acids found in deep-fried foods, cookies, cakes, and pastries should be avoided altogether.

Unsaturated fats are better choices. They are present in nuts, vegetable oils, peanut butter, avocado, flaxseed, chia seeds, and tofu.

Heart-healthy omega-3 fats are an important type of polyunsaturated fat. Good vegan sources are walnuts, flax seeds, chia seeds and vegetable oils.

What is considered a low-fat meal?

A low fat meal must contain no more than 30% of its calories from fat. In other words, fewer than 3 grams of fat per 100 calories.

What foods are completely fat free?

Foods with no fat are vegetables and fruits (except avocados).

You can also find some no-fat dairy options for cheese, yogurt and milk but look out for added sugar.

What snacks are high in protein but low in fat?

For high-protein and low-fat snacks, you should try incorporating different fruits and vegetables, beans and legumes, egg whites, tofu and low fat dairy.

Try this blueberry banana smoothie with 11 grams of protein per serving and roasted chickpeas with 10 grams of protein for inspiration.
