We’re all interested in managing our weight and being healthy, but let’s face it, even the healthiest of people still enjoy a few snacks here and there. So don’t worry! It is possible to indulge in snacks and still limit the amount of calories you’re consuming in a day. When looking for a healthy snack, most people want something under 100-calories.
To help, we’ve done all the necessary leg work to find these lean snacks. Not only are these snacks healthy and low calorie, they are delicious and many of them offer some really great health benefits!
Some of the listed snacks may not be appropriate for everyone and eating more than 1 or 2 of these snack options in a day can still cause you to gain weight. Speak with your dietitian to learn more on what is appropriate and not appropriate for you. Just because an option is less than 100 calories, doesn’t mean it is 0 calories.
