You’ve probably heard that snacking can ruin your diet, but healthy low-calorie snacks have a place in a well-balanced meal plan.

If you go too long between meals, you run the risk of overeating out of hunger.

You know the feeling – you’d die for a jumbo candy bar and a large soda.

To quell this urge, eat low-calorie snacks a couple of times per day to keep your unhealthy cravings at bay and satisfy your appetite without overdoing it on calories.

1. Popcorn

Popcorn

Did you know that popcorn counts as a whole grain and is one of the best low-calorie snacks out there?

It does and it is!

That’s because it’s loaded with nutrition.

At the same time, it won’t derail all your healthy goals because three cups of air popped popcorn weighs in at under 100 calories.

At that calorie count, you can afford to flavor your kernels with a bit of Parmesan cheese or a dab of melted butter.

2. Fruit and Yogurt

Fruit and Yogurt

True, many brands of yogurt have astronomical calorie counts.

That’s because many companies add loads of sugar to their products to make them sweet.

Step away from those options and grab a container of plain low-fat Greek yogurt.

Not only do you get way more protein with this choice, but you don’t get all that added sweet stuff, which only translates to more calories.

Top a small scoop of plain yogurt with chopped berries to add natural sweetness and keep your calorie count under control.

At just about 150 calories, this snack is ideal for movie night, to take to work or to nibble while you wait for the kids to finish soccer practice.

3. Grapes and String Cheese

Grapes and String Cheese

There’s something about the sweet juiciness of grapes that pairs deliciously with string cheese.

The two combined gives you an ideal mix of healthy carbs and protein to fuel you up and keep you going until your next meal.

You’ll fill up on just over 100 calories and you can spend the rest of the day knowing you chose a virtuous snack instead of a junky one.
