To eat without overdoing it is an art and requires incredible knowledge of nutrition to pack our plates with just the right essentials. Besides the three-course meal almost all of us adhere to, there are moments in the day when we are struck by unanticipated pangs of hunger and we, driven equally by our lack of awareness and desire for junk food, end up feeding ourselves things that add very little to our daily quota of nutrients. Hunger pangs do not wait for the right time and place to get hold of us, and too often we are caught off guard. Here’s a list of delicious 100 calorie snacks that one can turn to in the face of cravings to help ourselves with the right balance of health and taste.
Going by the old adage – an apple a day keeps the doctor away; we vouch for the benefits of apple as a healthy, yet low-calorie snack alternative. Besides, a fruit popsicle, handful of olives or a cup of frozen grapes serves as the ideal options for a 100-calorie snack. Non-vegetarians, on the other hand, can happily resort to large poached egg to placate their mid-day cravings. To add to the list, a warm cup of vegetable soup, almonds, jellybeans and 3 cups of air-popped popcorn are few other varieties to choose from when looking for a perfect low-calorie snack.
With the right knowledge, healthy munching isn’t that hard a habit to ace. Try it today.
