Munch Meter: Low Cal Snacks to High Cal Healthy Treats

Health

Oh, you like snacking? Yeah, so do we. That’s why we asked Keri Glassman, R.D. for her take on low cal snacks that can be downed with near abandon, and those healthy treats that need to be reigned in. Here you have the Munch Meter.

Go For it: Low Cal Snacks

No need to limit these filling, low-cal treats:

  • Air-popped popcorn
  • Raw veggies such as jicama, sugar snap peas, and cherry tomatoes
  • Steamed artichoke (dip in a warm mixture of nonfat Greek yogurt and Dijon mustard)
  • Fresh berries
  • Cucumber slices marinated in rice vinegar and topped with chopped red onions

Take It Slow: Healthy Snacks to Eat in Moderation

  • One hard-boiled egg dusted with sea salt and black pepper (70 calories)
  • A one-ounce chunk of Parmesan (110 calories)
  • Three slices of turkey breast wrapped in lettuce, with a little mustard (70 calories)

Proceed with Caution: Nutritious but high cal treats

  • Half an avocado with lemon and sea salt (160 calories)
  • A quarter cup of raisins or other dried fruit (123 calories)
  • About 15 nuts or one tablespoon of all-natural nut butter (100 calories)
  • Two tablespoons of hummus (50 calories)
