Restricting calories and constant dieting is
not a great idea. It’s always best to eat everything you want but
in moderation. However, we all have those days where we definitely
ate enough but we still want to munch on something late at night. And
you know chocolates, sweets or chips are not a great idea. Those will
only make your skin break out and are very likely to turn into
unwanted pounds on your body. So here are some foods that contain
very little calories, so you can munch on them guilt-free and not
worry about the scale.
Cucumbers contain very little calories so they
make for a great snack at any time of the day. It’s essentially
crunchy water. Refreshing, good for your skin and if you’re not
into drinking 8 glasses of water a day you can load up on cucumbers
Next time you feel like having buttery popcorn
while watching a movie at home – we suggest you just cut up celery
stalks into small pieces and crunch on those instead. Because
honestly, popcorn is empty but bad calories, while celery is very low
in calories and it’s good for you.
Carrots make a great snack, especially if you
grab a bag of baby carrots instead of a bag of chips. They’re
filling, delicious and full of vitamins. You know how your mom told
you carrots are good for eyesight? Well, she wasn’t lying.
Cabbage is a great vegetable to use when
bulking out a meal or a salad. It contains only 22 calories per 100
grams and believe me, 100 grams might not sound like a lot, but
cabbage is light, so you’ll struggle to eat more than that.
up, broccoli is actually delicious and can be eaten cooked and raw.
It’s one of the most nutritionally packed veggies out there and
just 100 grams of it has all the vitamin C you need in a day. That’s
right, lots of people think citrus fruits have the monopoly on
vitamin C, but that’s not true.
100 grams of apples contain only 52 calories,
and the much needed 3 grams of fiber which makes them a very filling
snack. They’re a great alternative to candy since they’re sweet
We all need to eat more greens. Arugula has a
specific taste that you will either love or hate. But it’s great in
salads and it has almost zero calories yet it contains protein,
calcium, potassium and vitamin K.
If you don’t like the taste of arugula, you
probably don’t mind iceberg lettuce. It’s crunchy and has a
refreshing quality to it. It’s great as a salad base, or as a way
of adding crunch and freshness to a sandwich or burger.
This dark leafy green packs a surprising amount
of vitamin K, double the daily amount of vitamin C, it’s a great
source of magnesium, iron and Vitamin B-6. It might be a bit tougher
to chew than most leafy greens but massaging the leaves with lemon
juice and olive oil and sprinkling them with some salt will make the
Kale softer and provide a great dressing for your salad.
Mushrooms are generally low in calories and therefore are great for bulking out stir-fries or even salads. You can also use them as a substitute for meat. Because of their spongy texture, they absorb flavors easily and you can season and make them taste like meat.
